Injections Q & A

What injections are available for weight loss?

Dr. Duncan and the team provide injections that are safe and effective. These include B12 injections that help your body use fat and carbohydrates for energy and to make new proteins.

Lipotropic injections are another option ideal for people who are already working on losing weight but find that diet and exercise are just not enough to break past a weight-loss plateau.

What is vitamin B12?

Vitamin B12 is an essential vitamin that promotes brain function, DNA production, and red blood cell replication. Vitamin B12 also plays a role in your metabolism. It assists your body in converting fat and protein into energy, as well as breaking down carbohydrates.

At Delta Medical Weight Management Center, B12 is offered as an injection to promote the health of your nerve and blood cells. You get a great boost of energy, and your metabolism gets a kick, helping with weight loss.

When you have more energy, you’re more motivated to exercise and drop pounds. If you’re on a restrictive diet, it can be hard to get all the B12 you need from whole foods. You can’t get too much vitamin B12 either; your body eliminates any extra in your urine.

The effects of B12 injections are temporary. Your body processes the vitamin, uses what it needs, and returns to its prior state. Regular injections are required to keep your metabolism and fat-burning capacities optimized.

What are lipotropic injections?

Lipotropic injections help release fat deposits in some parts of the body. The contents of these injections include methionine, an amino acid that’s important to metabolism, and inositol, a natural sugar related to the B vitamins that helps improve your body’s ability to use insulin — a hormone intrinsic to sugar processing and fat storage.

Lipotropic injections help your liver better process fat and discourage fat from settling in specific areas of your body.

You’ll also experience decreased appetite as a result of lipotropic injections, so you find it easier to follow a portion-controlled meal plan. You feel immediate results, such as greater energy and decreased appetite immediately following the injection.

Lipotropic injections alone, however, don’t cause weight loss. The compounds help your body become better able to lose fat.
