Your health is more than just your weight. We have a special Analyzer to assess your body composition. This differentiates us from many other weight loss clinics in Tampa Bay Area. The fat in different parts of your body will be calculated by the Inbody 230 which is a Body Composition Analyzer. The Inbody 230 finds out the amount and percentage of fat, water, and muscle throughout your body. Knowing if you need to lose fat and where you may need to build muscle can help you tailor your diet and exercise to meet your specific goals.
In our Tampa weight management clinic you will have a blood test taken to rule out reversible metabolic causes and to ensure that you can safely tolerate the medicines. You will have an option to see a dietician who will help you tailor your diet to your needs. We can advise you about the exercise suitable to lose weight and build muscle. An appetite suppressant may be provided to assist you after ensuring it is safe and indicated.
