Carvalho Healthcare utilizes an FDA-approved Health-O-Meter G6 body composition analysis scale which uses bio-impedance technology from Valhalla Scientific, the G6 Series scales provide a full body composition report including:
We prescribe mainly Semaglutide, our Generic Wegovy. We have also begun prescribing Tirzepatide as well. Semaglutide and Tirzepatide lowers the set point weight of the body over time. We see an average of 2.5 weightloss per week. We see around 10 lb weight-loss per month on Semaglutide. with Tirzepatide we see better results, as it is a newer medication, it is also a more expensive option. For many, the Semaglutide works well enough.
We guarantee if the patient takes the prescribed medication, adheres to our diet, exercise, and nutritional plan, not only will weight loss happen. Life satisfaction, well-being, confidence, and a sense of control will be achieved!
