Medical Weight Loss

Medical Weight Loss Spa in Des Moines, IA

Weight management tools are constantly changing. Current medical treatment of excess weight and weight-related diseases utilize many treatment options including, but not limited to: medications, behavioral life strategy tools, nutritional education, meal planning, meal replacements, and of course, exercise. No strategy works in a vacuum. No strategy works forever and that is why diets do not work. Food choices and life stressors affect us many times a day. Every person has a unique story. Yet sometimes patients gain understanding and commitment from groups – which is why we provide complimentary workshops.  Other patients prefer a private weight loss consultation with Susan Cross ARNP, one of our best medical weight loss specialistS at Urban Effect in Des Moines, IA.
