Based on your health history and disease risk factors, your specialist may recommend tests that evaluate hormone, cholesterol, or nutrient levels within your bloodstream.

Your Toseg Medical Center provider develops a customized weight loss plan just for you. They tailor nutritious menus and exercise programs to match your needs. 

You might take dietary supplements, weight-loss medications, or other medicines that help you manage a chronic disease. Your specialist follows up with you to ensure your weight loss plan works effectively.
