Holding on to extra weight affects you physically and emotionally. You increase your risk of chronic conditions, including heart disease and type 2 diabetes, and simple things like playing with your grandkids or taking a short hike become a chore.
Pure Medicine, with a office in Frisco, Texas, offers lifestyle modifications and behavior retooling to help you manage your weight in a healthy manner. Dr. Jordan Pastorek helps analyze your diet and offer drug therapy for support when needed.
Losing weight greatly improves health markers. Drop even 5-10% of your current weight and you’ll see positive changes in your blood pressure and blood sugar levels.

Losing weight also makes everyday activities easier, such as going up the stairs or walking around the office.
Losing weight can’t be a temporary fix. You need a lifelong strategy that keeps off the extra pounds so you look and feel healthy. Instead of recommending you simply cut calories or head to the gym, Pure Medicine helps you devise an eating and activity plan that matches your physical capabilities and lifestyle.
While what you eat and drink are factors, sometimes an underlying endocrine condition interferes with your ability to lose weight. A full metabolic workup by the staff at Pure Medicine helps determine if you need medical assistance in losing the excess pounds. Dr. Pastorek will sometimes prescribe FDA-approved medications, including Phentermine, Qsymia, Belviq, Contrave, and Saxenda if needed.
Pure Medicine will work with you to create diets that fit your lifestyle, likes, and dislikes. Weight loss does require some dietary adjustments, but when you choose the right foods, you don’t have to feel deprived and hungry all the time. As medical professionals, Dr. Pastorek understands your physical abilities and limitations, and thus design an exercise program at which you can succeed.

Dr. Pastorek will help you determine your ideal goal weight. Remember that you didn’t put the weight on overnight, so don’t expect to lose it overnight. Rapid weight loss stresses your vital organs, and you are more likely to put the weight right back on.
