Take Control of your Weight
Tired of all those fad diets falling short? Ready to make a lasting lifestyle change? Lose the weight and keep it off for good with our medically assisted and supervised weight loss program in Covington, LA. You have the power to transform your life and the medical guidance you need to make it happen here at Jill Gibson MD.
This is a nonsurgical program that utilizes nutrition, exercise, and behavioral counseling to help you lose weight in a safe and healthy way. This program is a long-term solution—a complete lifestyle change.
Obesity impacts more than half of the global population and is only projected to worsen. Poor weight management is a major contributor to disease and all-cause mortality in the United States. Weight loss and subsequent healthy weight management is often deterred by overly stressful lifestyles that impair the metabolism and overtax many of the body’s systems. Certain peptides work to correct these issues and support the production of key factors that assist in fat reduction, metabolic efficiency (including blood sugar and insulin support), and ultimately healthy weight management.
Benefits include support for:
- Improved fat burning
- Efficient weight loss and management
- Improved lean muscle mass
- Better sleep
- Blood sugar balance
- Workout recovery
- Enhanced mental clarity
- Improved body composition
- Enhanced immune function
- Weight management
What Does the Weight Loss Program Include?
Board-certified gynecologist Dr. Jill Gibson, a specialist in hormone optimization, will assess your unique health profile and evaluate what is contributing to your inability to lose weight, such as medications or metabolism.
You’ll then work together to create a long-lasting lifestyle change, achieve your goal weight, and start a new chapter of your health journey. You’ll get the counseling you need to improve your health and make a change you feel proud of.
Blood sugar, cholesterol, and triglyceride management are included in the program as well.
What is peptide therapy?
Peptides are small strings of amino acids that act like drones to influence cellular function and metabolic processes that support growth and repair of tissues while also regulating inflammation and helping to reduce the effects of aging.For decades, the use of peptides was limited but yielded incredible outcomes. Today, the benefits of peptide therapy and its impact on the human body at a deeply cellular level are well understood. These advancements allow practitioners to help patients like you reduce risk of disease, improve vitality, and embrace health and longevity.
What peptides does Dr. Gibson use?
Dr. Gibson will discuss which peptides are right depending on each individual. The most common two peptides used are Semaglutide (name band Ozempic or Wegovy) or Tirzepatide (name brand Mounjaro). Depending on the patient, peptide therapy may not be the best choice.
How long is the program and what are the expect results?
We recommend a 16 week program of once a week office visits for weigh-ins, medication management, and diet review. Our patients during the first week typically do not see any significant weight loss. On week 2, most patients see 1-2lbs of weight loss. Weeks 3-16 most patients see 3-4lbs of weight loss.
What happens after I finish the 16 week program? What if I haven’t reached my desired goal?
If you have reached your desired goal, we recommend a once a month maintenance program. If you still need to lose more weight, we can continue on a weekly basis until you achieve your desired result.
I’ve been on peptides before and/or Prescription Ozempic, etc and did not get the desired results.
This is a comprehensive program, not just a weekly injection. There maybe a underling issues medically that we need to address first before getting started on the program. That why we take a comprehensive lab panel before starting the program. Most clinics do not look at your overall well being and just prescribe medication and say “Good Luck”. We will address any medical issues that may be the root cause for your treatment not to work. We also will monitor your diet issues and overall wellness. This is why we limit how many patients we manage for weight loss because we want you to have exceptional results and an overall healthier body.
How much does this program cost? Can I use my health insurance to pay for this program?
The typical total cost of the 16 week program is $1750 ($100/week with a $150 initial lab charge). This includes your labs, office visits, and medications. We do require the first 4 weeks and labs to be paid up front before starting the program ($550). You may wish to use your insurance plan for the initial lab workup, however, if you have a high deductible plan, you will most likely pay $800-$1000 out of pocket for these labs. You can use your HSA account for this program.
