Mountain Peaks Family Practice Provides Advice on Medical Weight Loss Treatments

While the efficacy of these treatments in the short term can be substantial, we must also consider their side effects, costs, and the unknowns about their long-term safety.”
— Dr. Robert Durrans, owner and practitioner

OREM, UT, USA, May 15, 2024 / -- Mountain Peaks Family Practice, a provider of comprehensive health care, today provided an insightful overview of the benefits and challenges associated with medical weight loss treatments. Dr. Robert Durrans, lead physician at the practice, emphasized the necessity of integrating these treatments within a balanced health management strategy, focusing on the significant advantages and potential drawbacks.

"Medical weight loss treatments have proven to be a critical component in our arsenal against obesity and its associated health risks," said Dr. Durrans. "Some of our patients have experienced remarkable improvements in terms of significant weight reduction, enhanced metabolic health, and cardiovascular benefits. These medications are instrumental for those who have not achieved desired results through traditional lifestyle changes alone."

Dr. Durrans highlighted the positive impacts of these treatments, including effective weight loss, improved insulin sensitivity, and better cardiovascular health due to lower blood pressure and reduced cholesterol levels. These benefits underscore the importance of medical interventions in combating severe obesity and managing related health conditions effectively.

However, Dr. Durrans also expressed concerns regarding the potential downsides of these treatments. "While the efficacy of these treatments in the short term can be substantial, we must also consider their side effects, costs, and the unknowns about their long-term safety. Potential side effects such as nausea, vomiting, and other gastrointestinal issues can deter patients. Additionally, the high cost and variable insurance coverage can make these treatments inaccessible to many who might benefit from them," Dr. Durrans explained.

The practice advocates for a comprehensive approach, where medical treatments are integrated with lifestyle modifications like diet changes, physical activity, and psychological support. "Our holistic approach ensures that each patient receives a personalized treatment plan that not only addresses the medical aspects of obesity but also the behavioral changes necessary for long-term health success," added Dr. Durrans.
