Ed J. Hendricks, MD


We prescribe keto diets for our overfat, overweight patients followed by low-carb maintenance eating. We often prescribe anti-obesity medicines to assist with weight loss and continue those to assist with long-term weight maintenance. Long-term success with maintenance is difficult because of residual irreversible neuro-endocrine pathology that can be more successfully managed by including long-term nutritional ketosis and an anti-obesity medicine. Post weight loss harmful eating, food cravings, obsessive thoughts of food, and lack of eating restraint can be moderated by anti-obesity medicines.
