Resolve to Get Healthy This Year with a Medical Weight Loss Program

A new year is here and with it your long list of resolutions and goals. If losing weight is a goal you’ve never seemed to accomplish no matter how hard you’ve tried, you might need a customized medical weight loss program. 

Fortunately, Dr. Hammad Qureshi here at Creekside Family Practice in Cypress, Texas, specializes in weight loss treatment and can develop a medical weight loss program specific to you and your goals. 

Overview of medical weight loss programs

Medical weight loss programs take a different approach to weight loss than other weight loss methods. Unlike crash diets or surgical intervention, medical weight loss programs approach weight loss holistically, without surgery, restrictive diets, or unnatural solutions. 

These programs take into account your overall well-being and health history and combine it with your desired outcomes to create a healthy weight loss program. Results from our medical weight loss programs don’t just show up on your scale. We strive to give you a weight loss plan that lasts a lifetime by addressing the underlying cause of your weight problems. 


The first step to creating your medical weight loss program requires Dr. Qureshi to draw blood and screen for any medical conditions or hormonal imbalances that might be causing your weight problems. By understanding what’s causing your weight gain, Dr. Qureshi can create a program tailored to you that supports you as you work toward your goal and beyond. 

What we offer in our medical weight loss program

Because the causes of weight loss vary from person to person, Dr. Qureshi has a comprehensive list of treatment options to tackle your stubborn weight problems. We recommend the following treatments:

Hormone supplementation

Often, your issues with your weight aren’t a result of a lack of self-control but chemical and hormonal imbalances in your system. You have several glands in your body responsible for producing hormones that keep your systems running smoothly. If you have a hormonal issue like hypothyroidism, your system doesn’t produce enough hormones to regulate mood and bodily functions. These issues can also cause you to gain excessive weight. 

Dr. Qureshi recommends bioidentical hormone replacement for your hormonal imbalances. These hormones are man-made and come from plant material. Your body identifies the man-made hormones as its own and uses them to help regulate your body’s ability to function and lose weight. 

Vitamins and supplements

We never recommend that vitamins and supplements replace a healthy, balanced diet. Instead, we prescribe vitamins and supplements as a way to support your diet while you reduce your calorie intake. 

Depending on your specific situation, Dr. Qureshi recommends a vitamin and supplement plan that enhances your new healthy diet. 

Lifestyle changes

Maybe your problems with weight are a matter of lifestyle. Changing the way you live and eat can be among the most challenging decisions to make. In fact, one survey found 50% of people make losing weight their top resolution for the year, and over half of them fail because of an inability to commit or a lack of motivation.

That’s where we come in. Dr. Qureshi and his team support you through the ups and downs of your weight loss journey. We guide you to make better choices, help you develop diet and exercise plans, and coach you toward a healthy lifestyle that lasts. 

If you want to check losing weight off your resolution list this new year, do it the right way. Let us develop a medical weight loss plan that not only delivers the weight loss results you want but sets you on a path toward a much healthier and happier life. Call us today or book an appointment online to start your weight loss journey.
