Addressing Muscle Loss: A Comprehensive Approach at Pandya Medical Center

Feb 6, 2024

Medications like Semaglutide (Ozempic, Wegovy) and Tirzepitide (Mounjaro, Zepbound) are being used at a high rate to help patients lose weight. Unfortunately, muscle loss can be a significant concern for individuals using these injectable medications. At Pandya Medical Center, we recognize the importance of addressing this issue comprehensively. Our approach not only involves leveraging advanced tools like the InBody body composition machine for precise analysis but also incorporates personalized strategies, including high-protein medical-grade meal replacement shakes, to support muscle building and weight loss.

Understanding Injectable Medications and Muscle Loss

Semaglutide (Ozempic, Wegovy) and Tirzepitide (Mounjaro, Zepbound) are medications designed to aid in weight loss by regulating appetite, promoting satiety, and helping with insulin resistance and blood sugar metabolism. While these medications can be effective in reducing overall body weight, often individuals experience muscle loss as a side effect. It is crucial to address this concern proactively to maintain a healthy and balanced body composition.

The Role of InBody Body Composition Analysis

At Pandya Medical Center, we utilize state-of-the-art technology like the InBody body composition machine to provide a detailed analysis of body composition, including fat and muscle content. This non-invasive assessment allows our healthcare providers to measure a patient’s body fat percentage, body water content, and body muscle in different parts of the body to help tailor treatment plans based on individual needs, identifying areas of concern and tracking progress over time. By understanding the specific impact of medications on muscle mass, we can develop targeted individualized interventions to mitigate muscle loss effectively.

Personalized Strategies for Muscle Building and Weight Loss

Our approach to combating muscle loss goes beyond analysis; we offer personalized strategies to support muscle building and weight loss. We use the New Direction High-protein medical-grade meal replacement shakes and soup as a crucial tool in these strategies. These shakes are carefully formulated to provide the necessary nutrients for muscle recovery and growth while supporting overall weight loss goals. The combination of targeted nutrition as guided by our in-house nutritionist and regular monitoring through the InBody analysis ensures a comprehensive and individualized approach to preserving muscle mass.
