Medical Weight Loss Q & A

What is a medical weight loss program?

If you’ve ever wanted to lose weight, you’ve probably tried to do it on your own. You may have seen some results — but the pounds likely didn’t fall off the way you’d hoped.

That’s because transforming your diet and exercise routine is a lot of work. If you take baby steps, it takes a long time to reach your goal weight. But many people who make drastic, sweeping changes have trouble maintaining them long term. That’s where Pittsburgh East Health Center comes in. 

Through their medical weight loss program, the team helps patients make impactful, sustainable changes. At the same time, they leverage their expertise to ensure your body is getting exactly what it needs to lose weight. They can identify and treat nutritional deficiencies, hormonal imbalances, and other physical challenges that would otherwise get in the way of your weight loss goals. 

What does a medical weight loss program include?

Pittsburgh East Health Center is dedicated to helping patients achieve their body goals. To that end, they offer the latest, most innovative weight loss treatments available today, including:

HCG diets

Human chorionic gonadotropin (hCG) is a hormone that can help boost your metabolism and support fat loss. What’s more, it helps mitigate food cravings and sensations of hunger so you can stick to your diet without feeling deprived.

HCG is used as an ‘off label’ purpose for weight loss & has not been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use in weight loss. 

Natural supplements

Giving your body all of the nutrients it needs lets it know that it’s okay to get rid of excess fat stores. Your Pittsburgh East Health Center provider determines which supplements best support your weight loss goals. 

Laser lipo

Laser lipo treatments allow your Pittsburgh East Health Center provider to break down targeted areas of fat without the need for a single incision. 


One of the world’s leading weight loss drugs — and for good reason — phentermine is an appetite suppressant that can make it easier than you ever thought possible to change the way you eat. 


A once-weekly subcutaneous injection GLP-1 agonist for weight loss. GLP-1 agonists were initially developed to improve glycemic control with type 2 diabetics as an adjunct to diet and exercise. It works to enhance the growth of beta cells in the pancreas, which are sites of insulin production.  Semaglutide will delay gastric emptying by reducing glucagon secretion in a glucose-dependent manner. The delay in gastric emptying can reduce appetite, improve control of eating, and reduce food cravings.

Will I have to diet and exercise?

Yes. But you won’t feel food-deprived or pushed to your physical limit. Your Pittsburgh East Health Center provider works with you to develop a food and exercise plan that’s sustainable for you long term. Their aim isn’t just to help you reach your goal weight. They help you make the lifestyle changes you need to maintain your weight loss results.
