Weight LossImprove your health with medical weight loss in Brooklyn, NY

Sometimes changes and diet and lifestyle are insufficient for long-term sustainable weight loss. If excess weight is linked to underlying health issues, it can be difficult to lose weight and keep it off for good. The NY Center for Integrative Medicine in Brooklyn can help with a truly comprehensive approach to medical weight loss. We offer comprehensive screening and diagnostic tools to guide your diet, fitness, and healthy behaviors that can address your metabolism and ensure there is no underlying reason for your struggles with weight..

Holistic medicine for personalized treatment

Our bodies are unique, and our treatment plans should be as well. For example, while some people may do well with a  low-carb diet, others can experience low energy and continued difficulty losing weight. Our comprehensive approach will take  360 degree view of all of the factors that may contribute to your difficulty losing weight. This might include blood work, genomic (DNA) assessment, and a variety of hormone assessments.

For example, with DNA screening, we can discover your optimum ratio of macronutrients to decide how much fat, carbohydrates, and protein your body requires. Our clinical team may employ self-monitoring techniques to help you understand your eating habits, so you can adjust your meal plan to account for the times you like to snack and make better choices.

Drs. Kachko and Shapsis may perform tests to check for changes in your metabolism throughout your treatment. He may also screen for hormone imbalances and analyze your gut bacteria to look for other conditions that can contribute to issues with your weight. In some cases, difficulty losing weight may be related to disorders in your autonomic nervous system which can be screened for as well.

All of these tests will help you get the whole picture on your health so you can form a strategy that goes beyond treating the symptoms and address problems at the root cause.
