Why Clinical Weight Management is the Key to Real Weight Loss Success
Individuals living with obesity know something that others don’t — sometimes leading a healthy lifestyle isn’t enough. Unwanted weight gain can be caused by a wide range of physical, hormonal, and psychological conditions. Everything from genetics to endocrine disorders to old injuries that make activity harder. Even sleep deprivation can be a contributing factor.
Complex conditions require customized treatment, and obesity is no different. Lecturing patients to “eat better and exercise more” is rarely successful, precisely because many people living with obesity already eat well and exercise as much as possible. Recognizing that fact, Qyral is proud to launch a personalized clinical weight management program that tackles the underlying cause of obesity for each individual patient.
“Our goal is to make clinical weight management services available to everybody, without long waitlists, expensive copays, or insurance companies refusing to cover treatment,” says Qyral founder Hanieh Sigari. “We already democratized dermatology with our individually compounded, prescription-strength skincare formulations. Now we’re doing the same thing for clinical weight management.”
Telemedicine is the secret to Qyral’s success. The pandemic increased both the availability and uptake of telehealth services dramatically, with more doctors and patients connecting remotely now than ever before. Through virtual appointments, clinicians can reduce the number of no-shows and missed appointments that contribute to lost time and longer waitlists, while patients enjoy the convenience of a consultation in the time it takes for a phone call. That means no more taking time off work, juggling childcare and other responsibilities for the sake of a simple checkup.
The information a doctor needs to effectively manage a patient’s weight is easily available without needing to meet them in person. Following a simple medical questionnaire and a telehealth consultation, Qyral’s physicians create a customized weight management treatment course for each patient. Standard treatment typically consists of advice regarding lifestyle factors impacting obesity combined with custom-compounded medication to address and support healthy weight loss.
“Weight management treatment has come a long way in just the last couple of years,” says Sigari. “The development of semaglutide really paved the way for safe, effective clinical treatment of obesity.”
Developed in 2012, semaglutide mimics the actions of natural peptides in the body, increasing insulin secretion and improving blood sugar control. Originally created as a treatment for type 2 diabetes, semaglutide has shown significant results as a weight-loss aid, with clinical trials showing patients lose on average 15% body weight after a year of regular treatment.
Commonly sold under the brand names Ozempic, Wegovy and Rybelsus, semaglutide is also available with a prescription from compounding pharmacies like Qyral’s. Qyral compounds semaglutide with vitamin B12 or equivalent, following a treatment protocol that has proven the most effective in clinical studies.
By combining lifestyle coaching with the right medications and tailoring treatment for each individual, clinical weight management treatment has proven extremely effective at tackling obesity and unwanted weight gain. Long-term studies into the outcomes of this holistic treatment approach show that patients experience better outcomes and are more likely to maintain a normal weight afterward.
We’re all unique. It’s time our medications and cosmetics were unique too. Thanks to advances in the manufacturing industry, and the innovative foresight of companies like Qyral, it’s possible right now for individuals to experience personalized treatment and better outcomes for everything from skincare to weight management.
