Weight Management

Maintaining a healthy weight can be tricky at any age. Fad diets and extreme weight loss plans aren’t sustainable in the long run, and as you age, weight can become increasingly difficult to manage.
Many weight loss programs don’t address your unique health needs, which can prevent you from achieving your weight loss goals. Our weight management treatments can help.

The Right Treatment Can Help

If you’ve had trouble with weight loss, you may have experienced the following symptoms:

  • Low energy levels
  • Trouble maintaining lean muscle mass, even with diet and exercise
  • Thickening in the midsection
  • Inability to lose more than 5-10 pounds
  • Strong, irresistible food cravings
  • Frequent hunger
  • Weight gain, even while eating less and exercising more

Weight Management Treatments that Make a Real Difference

First, we work with you to identify the obstacles preventing you from realizing your weight loss goals. Then, we develop a personalized plan to you to help you achieve them.

Some weight management treatments we offer include:

Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy

Without the right balance of hormones, your body can lose the ability to regulate the processes that help with weight loss. Hormone imbalances can cause slower metabolism, increase abdominal fat and decrease energy. Bioidentical Hormone Replacement Therapy helps balance these hormones, optimizing your body for weight loss.


Sermorelin Acetate stimulates the pituitary gland to produce growth hormones. These increased growth hormones may help your body with weight management by improving your body’s fat-burning ability, increasing bone density, strengthening muscle mass, and increasing your energy levels.

Low-Dose Naltrexone

When used in a low dose, Naltrexone (LDN) can help reduce inflammation and autoimmune activity, and can boost the immune system. LDN has also been used to counter alcohol abuse and food cravings, which can be beneficial in patients struggling to manage their weight.

Duke City Healthcare can help you with your weight management challenges. We start by determining your weight loss goals and then create a unique plan to target the underlying reasons you are unable to achieve your ideal weight.
