Nutrition & Weight Loss Service
Glah Medical Group
first began providing nutrition and weight loss services in the mid-70’s, long before obesity was recognized as a medical condition and before the debates raged over which diet program was best. Now, 35 years later, research has declared obesity an epidemic and that the most successful diet programs are the same diet programs that we have always practiced. That is why we have such a long-standing record of success.

You may have been told by your physician that you need to lose weight, but were not given the tools you need to accomplish this. That’s because some physicians consider obesity to be a personal problem and don’t recognize it as a disease that has to be medically treated like any other illness. As a result, many people have resolved that obesity is their fault and seeking medical help is a sign of weakness and failure. Unfortunately, society supports this and continues to stigmatize weight loss treatments, both medical and surgical.
At Glah Medical Group
, we believe that obesity is a medical illness, needing a lifetime of monitoring and support to avoid obesity related health issues such as cancer, high blood pressure, diabetes, heart disease, arthritis and sleep apnea. Therefore, after reaching a healthy weight, you begin our maintenance program which is an integral part of your treatment plan.
The diet plan that we offer can be adjusted according to your needs, medical condition and lifestyle. During the initial office visit, the counselor will discuss our program and help you choose the one that suits your lifestyle. We have tasty protein bars, snacks and shakes to make easy meal replacements if you have a hectic schedule.
At each office visit, you will meet with a counselor who will weigh you, take your blood pressure, give you information, make changes to the diet when needed, review your food diary, answer questions and make suggestions. Then you will see the physician or physician assistant.
Based on your medical history and physical examination, you may be a candidate for medications to help you with your will power. Medications dispensed are FDA approved, time tested and given under medical supervision. Depending on your medical problems the physician will choose an appropriate drug regime, closely monitoring for any side effects.
