Health & Medical Blog

If you fear that being overweight is going to be the cause of your early death, and you know that you need to get medical and professional help, see a doctor right away. Meet with your medical professional or find a weight loss specialist to start changing your life today.

It doesn't matter how much weight you need to lose; you can never get on the road to recovery if you don't try. Here are some of the things to talk with your weight loss medical professional about.

Prescription Medications

There are prescription medications that can aid in your weight loss journey if your medical professional thinks that they are right for you. Some options include:

  • Orlistat
  • Phentermine-topiramate
  • Naltrexone-bupropion
  • Liraglutide
  • Benzphetamine

What medicine is right for you will depend on what your weight loss goals are, how overweight you currently are, and what type of weight loss assistance your medical professional thinks you need. These or other weight loss medications should be taken exactly as prescribed by your physician.


Your doctor may set out a diet plan for you or ask that you meet with a nutritionist. Getting the right nutrition during the weight loss process is important. This could include:

  • Cutting down on calories
  • Removing foods from your diet
  • Meeting certain food goals every day
  • Keeping a journal of what you eat

There are even apps that you can get for your phone that can help you track your calories, sodium, fat, protein, and more throughout the day. Sticking to the diet directed by a health professional will be important.


Exercising while trying to lose weight will be important for many reasons. Exercising will help to:

  • Speed up the weight loss process
  • Improve heart health
  • Reduce joint pain and discomfort by strengthening the body
  • Improve mood

You want to be at least walking every day when you are trying to lose weight. Walking not only burns calories but can help to transform your body over time.

If you are ready to set out on a weight loss journey but you aren't sure where to start, talk with a medical professional to make sure that your body is ready to start this new transition and change. From there you'll be able to create a plan so you are eating better, doing more for your body, and getting to the goal weight that you and your medical professional have picked out. You can start this change today.

Outstanding In-Home Care

When my mother fell at home and broke her hip, we all thought that we were going to have no choice to put her in a nursing home when she got out of the hospital. My mother had always asked us kids to avoid putting her in any kind of home, but we didn’t know what else we could do. None of us were capable of giving her the kind of rehabilitation and care that she needed. Then her doctor suggested that we find out if her insurance covered in-home care. I didn’t even know that that was an option. I was pleased to discover that in-home care was covered by her plan. Now she gets great care from nurses and nurse assistants that come right to her in her home, where she wants to be. It’s a great option, and I’m so glad we have it.
