What is medical weight loss for young adults?
Because teens and young adults are going through significant developmental changes, they have particular needs that must be recognized. A medical professional is fully capable of recognizing and accommodating these needs. For example, the metabolisms of young people are different from those of adults, so this is something we consider, and because allergies are quite common, they need to be considered too. Our programs are customized and comprehensive to take these needs into account. Our medical team offers support every step of the way.
How does a medical weight-loss program for young adults work?
In this program, young adults are introduced to the many different considerations and factors involved in weight gain and weight loss, and then they’re encouraged to participate in healthy activities. Parents along with the medical professional will play a significant role in encouraging and supporting their young adult. A medically supervised weight-loss program could include:
- Lab testing (depending on age and preference) to help us understand the health needs and metabolism better
- Complete meal plans that accommodate food allergies
- Any other accommodations needed,such as accommodations for a chronic condition like asthma
- Medical monitoring to help ensure his or her health is preserved
- Professional guidance to help ensure weight loss is effective
- Advice and strategies for developing healthy habits that will keep the weight off
- Advice and guidance for a parent on how to support your young adult during the program

According to the CDC, more than 84 million adults have pre-diabetes, or elevated blood sugar levels. Recent studies look at how many children and young adults are impacted by pre-diabetes.
Researchers have found young people who had pre-diabetes were also more likely to have elevated cholesterol, high blood pressure and obesity.
Left unchecked, pre-diabetes can lead to type-two diabetes over time, which puts people at high risk for major health problems such as heart disease and stroke. This can all be worrisome but doesn’t have to be. There are many factors that can impact a young person’s risk for developing diabetes – including genetics – but most times, risk can be lowered by adopting healthy lifestyle habits.
