Weight Loss

Weight loss is a complex and personal journey that often requires more than just lifestyle changes for effective results. At Tropical Telemedicine, we offer comprehensive support, including weight loss medications and personalized lifestyle recommendations, to treat obesity and excessive weight.

Our provider, Abby Guirguis, conducts virtual consultations to assess your health status and weight loss goals. She creates customized plans tailored to your needs, offering affordable and convenient solutions from the comfort of your home. 

We work closely with you, providing the necessary support and guidance to help you achieve your weight loss goals.

Health Conditions Related to Excessive Weight

Excessive weight can have a significant impact on your health. Carrying extra weight can cause chronic inflammation and insulin resistance, which negatively affect your metabolic processes and contribute to a range of health issues.

It can increase the risk of many serious health conditions. Common health conditions related to excessive weight include:

  • Heart Disease & Stroke: Excessive weight can lead to unhealthy cholesterol levels and high blood pressure. These factors contribute to a higher risk of heart disease and strokes.
  • Type 2 Diabetes: Excessive weight can lead to fat buildup in your body. These fat cells release hormones and chemicals that produce an inflammatory response. Chronic inflammation can contribute to insulin resistance. This can result in high blood sugar levels and an increased risk of diabetes. 
  • Sleep Apnea: Sleep apnea is a condition where breathing repeatedly stops and starts during sleep. Excess weight can cause fatty deposits around the upper airway, obstructing breathing and leading to sleep apnea.
  • Osteoarthritis: Excess weight places extra pressure on your joints, particularly in the knees, hips, and lower back. This can lead to osteoarthritis and other joint problems, causing pain and limiting mobility.
  • Fatty Liver: This occurs when fat accumulates in the liver, causing inflammation and potentially leading to liver damage. Nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) is common in people with excessive weight. 

Factors Contributing to Weight Gain

The primary factors that contribute to excessive weight gain include:

  • A high-calorie, low-nutrient diet, including fast food, sugary drinks, and processed snacks
  • A sedentary lifestyle with minimal exercise 
  • Genetic factors that affect your metabolism, fat storage, and appetite regulation
  • Stress, depression, and other psychological factors 
  • Medical conditions, such as hypothyroidism, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and diabetes
  • Medications, such as certain antidepressants or antipsychotic drugs

Prescription Weight Loss Medication

At Tropical Telemedicine, we provide expert weight loss services to help you achieve your weight loss goals. Our provider conducts virtual consultations to address your weight concerns conveniently and affordably.

For effective weight loss results, we also offer prescriptions for weight loss medication, such as Ozempic® and phentermine. For phentermine medication, you will need an EKG and blood pressure reading.

These medications help you by suppressing appetite and reducing food intake, facilitating weight loss. We can send medications to your door through a partnering mail-order pharmacy.

We provide prescriptions for Ozempic® and other similar medications at a flat rate of $350 per month. This price includes:

  • Virtual Consultation
  • Necessary lab orders (unless you have provided basic labs and A1C within the past three months)
  • 1-month prescription
  • Medication delivered to your door within a few days

Our comprehensive package is a fraction of the cost of local competitors. We ensure you receive high-quality care and effective weight loss solutions without breaking the bank.

Healthy Weight Management

Achieving your weight loss goal is just one part of the journey; maintaining a healthy weight afterward is equally important. 

Effective weight management involves taking care of your health and lifestyle habits. Here are some key strategies:

  • Eat a balanced and nutritious diet
  • Exercise regularly
  • Ensure quality sleep and establish a regular sleep schedule 
  • Manage stress using techniques such as breathing exercises and meditation
  • Monitor your eating habits and avoid binge eating
