Medical Weight Loss for Youth & Adults
Peptides are strands of amino acids essential in protein synthesis. Peptides stimulate the pituitary in the brain to naturally produce growth hormone. This can help aid the body in recovery from injuries, prevent injuries, performance enhancement, muscle mass gain, fat loss, metabolism, rejuvenate the body and much more.
Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is produced by the gut. It increases insulin production, a hormone that lowers the blood sugar level while inhibiting glucagon secretion, which is a hormone that raises blood sugar, reduces appetite and energy intake while delaying gastric emptying. It is an FDA approved medication for chronic weight management.
GLP-1s are not stimulants, non-habit forming and are clinically-proven to be the most effective medications for long-term results. They work on the same receptors as powerful, naturally-occurring GLP-1 hormones that exist in your body, which improve your metabolic function, and regulate your digestion so you can feel full longer and maximize nutrient absorption. GLP-1s also have far-reaching benefits including reducing inflammation and cardiovascular disease risk to help you not only lose weight, but also live a longer and healthier life.
GLP-1s are different from older classes of weight loss medications (like phentermine) because they work on key underlying metabolic pathways to support sustained weight loss, not a quick fix.
- Reduces food intake by lowering appetite
- It slows food digestion in the stomach.
- Decrease body fat percentage.
- Weight loss
- Decreased cardiovascular outcomes in subjects with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease.
- Lower HbA1c levels.
- Enhance the growth of β cells in the pancreas.
Lipo-C injection contains a mixture of compounds that may aid in the reduction of adipose tissue (fat). The mixture of compounds individually may be effective, however in combination they may exhibit more lipotropic activity than when administered alone in a synergistic fashion.
MIC is an injection of vitamins, and amino acids that is an important part of your weight loss regimen. It ensures your body receives all the necessary nutrients to keep you at your energetic best. Many of these nutrients are not readily absorbed when taken orally and need to be taken by injection. B6 and MIC injections are safe, effective and keep
your body well-balanced. They help increase energy as well as contribute to the success of your weight loss plan.

What is childhood obesity?
Childhood obesity is a condition where excess body fat negatively affects a child’s health or well-being. A child is considered obese when their body mass index (BMI) is greater than the 95th percentile (meaning greater than 95% of children of the same age). Today, one out of every three adolescents is considered overweight or obese.
Why is childhood obesity a problem?
Obesity increases the risk for serious health problems. Kids who are unhappy with their weight also may be more likely to develop low self-esteem, depression, substance abuse, or unhealthy dieting habits and eating disorders. Health consequences of obesity include:
- High blood pressure, high cholesterol, and/or high triglycerides that can lead to heart disease, heart failure, or stroke in adulthood
- Type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance that can lead to kidney failure, blindness, heart disease, and peripheral vascular disease (decreased blood flow and sensation to fingers/toes) in adulthood
- Bone and joint problems
- Shortness of breath that makes any physical activity more difficult and may increase the chance of developing or aggravate the symptoms of asthma
- Early physical and sexual maturation
- Irregular menstrual cycles and fertility problems in adulthood (girls)
What contributes to childhood obesity?
- Youth are eating and drinking more calories than ever.
- Children eat about 187 extra calories on days that they eat fast food.
- Juices and soda are a source of calories without significant nutrition.
- Youth are playing outside, running, and exercising LESS and sitting in front of a TV, PC, or tablet MORE.
