Weight Loss and Health Maintenance FAQs

Our medical team can answer all of your questions regarding weight loss.

While we all know that maintaining a healthy weight can certainly help us maintain better health, we also know that there is so much information out there these days that patients can often feel overwhelmed by what to do. Should I go keto? Is intermittent fasting right for me? Are eggs good or bad? Here at RMS Consultations, our Southfield, MI, doctor Dr. Antoine Geffrard has more than 40 years of medical training and experience to answer your questions regarding maintaining an ideal weight and optimal health.

How can I maintain a healthy weight with a chronic illness?

We know that obesity can often increase a person’s risk for developing other chronic diseases such as heart disease and diabetes, so maintaining a healthy weight (or losing weight)  can actually improve your chronic condition; however, our Southfield, MI, physician Dr. Geffrard also understands that it’s a bit more complicated for patients living with long-term diseases to simply start exercising and eating right. This is where we come in.

Whether uncontrolled pain is keeping you from working out the way you want or there are other obstacles in your way to maintaining a healthy weight, we can provide you with a variety of recommendations including dietary solutions so you understand your next steps to better health.

Could my current medications be causing my weight gain?

Did you know that certain medications could be the cause of your weight gain? While this is something that your doctor should discuss with you before prescribing the medication, sometimes patients don’t realize the impact this sudden weight gain will have until it’s happening.

Here at our Southfield, MI, practice, Dr. Geffrard offers one-on-one consultations to discuss your current medications to see if other medications might provide you with better results without the weight gain side effects. If antidepressants or other drugs have led to weight gain, we can work with you to find the right drugs to fit your needs.

Is fasting safe?

There is a lot of information out there regarding fasting. While fasting can be a safe way to improve metabolism and assist with weight loss, it’s important that it’s done properly. This is where our team can provide you with monitoring, advice and tips for safely fasting. We can also determine if fasting is right for you based on your current health status. Don’t try and fast without first speaking with a qualified medical professional to make sure it’s right for you.

Why should I turn to RMS Consultations?

From providing recommendations on colonic irrigations to mapping out a detailed and tailored weight loss plan, our Southfield, MI, physician can help you get your health back on track. There is a lot of misinformation online these days with regards to weight loss, fasting and more, which can be confusing or even dangerous.

Unfortunately, most patients don’t feel that their regular doctors have time to sit down and really talk to them about fasting, colonics and other weight loss options. This is when a consultation with our physician Dr. Geffrard at RMS Consultations can provide you with valuable insight and knowledge so you can make more informed decisions regarding weight loss and health maintenance.
