How does this program address appetite?
The MetTrimMD program addresses appetite – a primary patient concern – in several ways:
- By designing a meal plan that is filling and satisfying
- By allowing snacks that satisfy appetite between meals
- By adding medications or supplements to the treatment plan to minimize appetite when necessary
The providers at Seacoast Medical Associates know how challenging it can be to lose weight and specialize in weight loss for those who have been unsuccessful in other programs. A primary component of their treatment plan is appetite management.
Is MetTrimMD safe for Type 2 Diabetics?
Type 2 diabetics successfully use the MetTrimMD program. As a matter of fact, because this lifestyle plan uses the patient’s unique medical history, metabolism, and body type, the MetTrimMD diet eventually helps certain patients stop using medications for type 2 diabetes.
Does insurance cover weight loss surgeries?
Many Seacoast Medical Associates patients find that their insurance covers weight loss services. Because policies vary, patients should check with their insurance provider to find out if their treatment is covered.
