"Although the weight loss industry pours incredible amounts of money into celebrity endorsements, we were not surprised to find most adults prefer to get their medical advice from a medical professional," said Dr. Mark Musco, co-founder, CEO & Chief Medical Officer of LeanMD. "When we look at a patient, we see the entire person, including their lab results, medical history, body composition analysis, and more. As medical providers, we have access to all the tools needed to maximize patients' metabolism and help them reach optimum health levels. For example, we can check hormone levels, thyroid function and other key metrics; and we can prescribe medications to help the patient manage hunger safely."
Dr. Musco adds that losing weight can be risky especially if the patient has known (or unknown) health conditions and it is important to have weight loss and vital signs monitored consistently, to ensure weight loss is accomplished safely.
