Noticeable benefits of actual weight loss may include the lowering of blood sugar and blood pressure. There can also be a reduction in significant health concerns like joint pain, breathing problems, and insomnia.
The duration of treatment will depend on whether or not it is effectively assisting with weight loss. If there are no side effects, the treatment may continue for an extended period of time. However, if the weight loss is not significant or there are side effects, then the treatment may be discontinued. Regardless of how long the treatment continues, lifestyle changes need to be permanent to maintain the weight loss or continue losing weight.
