It’s not easy to lose weight. Thankfully, you don’t have to do it on your own. The Sutter Weight Management and Metabolic Program offers support and tools to help you lose weight for the long term, feel better and resolve or prevent weight-related medical problems such as diabetes and high blood pressure. Our program is designed for adults with a body mass index of 30 kg/m2 or more.
Board-certified endocrinologist and obesity specialist Shilpa Jain, M.D., and her team will help you adopt healthier food choices and behavior changes that lead to long-term weight loss. In addition, she can discuss whether you would benefit from treatment with a FDA-approved weight loss medication. An on-site registered dietitian supports you in adjusting your diet and developing a healthier relationship with food.
Here's how the program works:
- You will begin with an individual consultation with Dr. Jain and a registered dietitian to review your medical history and discuss how weight is affecting your health. You will receive a physical exam and a laboratory evaluation.
- Next, we create a comprehensive, personalized plan to help you reach your goals and improve your health. (Unlike many commercial weight loss programs, the Sutter Weight Management and Metabolic Program does not market or sell products such as meal replacements or supplements.)
- You will meet with Dr. Jain and a registered dietitian regularly to assess your progress and make any necessary adjustments.
Throughout the program, we will work closely with your primary care doctor to ensure well-coordinated care for any ongoing medical issues. We can also refer you to other specialists, as necessary, for additional weight loss options, such as endoscopic bariatric procedures, bariatric weight loss surgery and a medically based meal replacement program.
Many insurance plans cover the physician visits; dietitian services may also be covered, depending on your plan. Please speak with your insurance provider to understand your benefits for weight management.
