Weight Management Program

This is the name of an aggressive new Internet program for weight loss that will help anyone who wants weight treatment. We have shown major success with a treatment that you arrange on your time. It educates you on the six metabolic areas of weight loss proven successful in the office setting, and helps you set personal goals you can stick with.

Weekly email will provide the primary communication tool about new products and developments in weight control, and appropriate utilization of new medications. Periodic "position papers" on new therapies will be distributed. Nutrition consultation will be arranged as appropriate.

EMMC, a pioneer in metabolic disorders such as diabetes for fifteen years under the leadership of J. Joseph Prendergast, MD, uses systematic coordination of medications for weight control. This is no longer a backwater of medical care. To control weight it is essential to have solid medical strategies, just like all the other chronic medical disorders.

What do you get for $95USD a month? 

  • E-Newsletter about new medications, approaches, treatments 
  • Direct prescriptions as an EMMC patient, or from your doctor with our direction as appropriate
  • Staff management of your specific situation, by email or phone calls if necessary 
  • "Position" papers on areas of your personal weight management program 
  • Daily interaction with the staff when "out of control" times occur 
  • Direct contact and coordination with your personal doctor as needed 
  • Data base tracking of your progress 
  • Contact at least every two weeks  
  • If you have diabetes, we will synchronize your weight loss with good control

Be aware that email is not secure, but this is how we communicate. We will assemble all program records, keeping them secure and confidential in the same way any medical records are retained. We must adhere to all standards of medical care for your safety. That includes the requirement that a doctor examine you periodically. We can't guarantee your weight loss, but we are good at it and want to help you succeed.

Our program uses distinct, medically recognized, state of the art pathways, to conduct your personal plan. The risks of excessive weight are well understood and the numbers of identified risks are mounting. It will not be easy but it can be done. This cannot wait. You may have lost hope of achieving your goal, but we will help you find the way.
