Being overweight is frustrating and detrimental to our day-to-day lives and long-term health. It can lead to fatigue, sleep apnea, breathing trouble, joint and back pain, and low self-esteem. More severely, it can lead to deadly illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, and several forms of cancer. While we understand that weight loss is challenging and becomes challenging as we age, our Medical Weight Loss Program is here to help.
The Mygenics Weight Loss Program takes a comprehensive approach to your weight loss journey. You no longer have to suffer through trial and error, yo-yo dieting, and being uncomfortable. We test and analyze your genetics, hormones, gut flora, and cellular health. Armed with this information, we can devise a tailored approach that helps you regain your energy, health, and confidence and ultimately get your body back.
Weight Loss Injections
The latest advancements in medical weight loss are weight loss injections. These injections include Wegovy® (Semaglutide), Mounjaro™ (Tirzepatide), and others.
These weight loss injections can lead to significant weight loss in individuals who are overweight or have obesity. In clinical trials, participants who received Semaglutide alongside lifestyle modifications achieved more weight loss than those who received a placebo.
The weight loss injections also help reduce appetite. The injections mimic a hormone called GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), which helps regulate appetite. By activating GLP-1 receptors in the brain, Semaglutide and other weight-loss injections can help reduce hunger and increase satiety, making it easier to adhere to a calorie-restricted diet.
At Mygenics, we assess whether weight loss injections are right for you.
Hormone Replacement for Weight Loss
Your hormones are vital chemical messengers that affect nearly every bodily process, including metabolism, hunger, and satiety. Unfortunately, we can have imbalanced hormone levels, and as we age, our hormone levels decrease. Decreased hormone levels inevitably lead to weight gain, as well as other challenges such as loss of sex drive and loss of energy.
At Mygenics, we test and optimize your hormone levels to assist with your medical weight loss. Specifically, we analyze your insulin, thyroid, cortisol, and sex hormones such as estrogen and testosterone.
The hormone replacement therapy begins with a simple in-office blood draw. Once we analyze your hormone levels, we provide the appropriate bioidentical hormones to correct imbalances, restore youthfulness, and ultimately help with weight loss. We should note these bioidentical hormones come from natural plant sources and are chemically identical to the hormones in your body. Furthermore, we can supply these hormones as creams, capsules, injections, pellets, or a combination of the above depending on patient preference.

Gut Microbiome Rehab for Weight Loss
The gut microbiome is a regulator for multiple systems in your body and directly affects your ability to lose weight. It is an ecosystem of trillions of bacteria, which when balanced, will help you get the most out of your meals. A healthy gut can take the nutrients from food and transform them into fuel that can boost your metabolism, increase your energy levels, improve digestibility, and provide feelings of fullness.
It is important to note that your biology and gut microbiome is unique. How you respond to individual foods, specifically carbohydrates, proteins, and fats, is entirely different than anybody else. For this reason, fad diets may work but usually do not lead to long-term results.
The key is to know which foods, supplements, and macronutrients are best for you and your microbiome. This is where the Mygenics Gut Rehab Program comes into play. After providing a stool sample, we run a group of advanced tests that provide actionable clinical information. Patients can expect the Medical Weight Loss program to work as we identify functional imbalances and inadequacies, and correct them through targeted dietary, lifestyle, and supplementation therapeutics.

Micronutrient Testing for Weight Loss
Nearly all biochemical reactions in your body occur inside your cells, where you make enzymes, proteins, neurotransmitters, hormones, and energy. Unfortunately, a cell that isn’t functioning properly compromises the metabolic processes needed to sustain life.
Of course, these cells need adequate fuel to function optimally. We recognize this fuel as micronutrients. The micronutrients are minerals, vitamins, antioxidants, and various chemicals. Our bodies need these micronutrients to perform all the metabolic reactions necessary to survive and thrive. Understanding this, we know that a micronutrient deficiency leads to cellular dysfunction. Cellular dysfunction leads to weight gain, fatigue, and even disease.
At Mygenics, we utilize Micronutrient Testing to properly balance your body, ensure your system functions appropriately, and ultimately help you with your Medical Weight Loss. The test consists of a simple in-office blood draw. We then use the results to tailor a targeted supplementation regimen.

Genetic Testing and AI for Weight Loss
Your genes dictate how your body responds to what you eat and your lifestyle choices, and your genetic blueprint is unique to you. For example, your genes determine if you are sensitive to gluten or whether you respond negatively to carbs. Your genetics also determine if it is easy for you to gain muscle or whether it is difficult for you to lose fat.
Previously, we were unable to determine your genetic makeup, and thus creating diet and fitness programs was guesswork. However, we now can test and analyze your genes and formulate unique programs that are individually tailored to you.
At Mygenics, our genetic testing begins with a simple spit test. After we analyze your genetics, we provide an app on your phone that includes custom meal plans and training programs. With our Medical Weight Loss Program, we monitor your results and make changes to diet and fitness regimens as your body and goals change. Amazingly, you no longer have to count calories and stress over what to do for your workout. Our app and AI handle all of that.
By eliminating the guesswork, we can find success and speed up your weight loss journey.
