THIS PROGRAM WORKS!
"Fella is awesome. I am glad I took time to fill out application on the internet when I ran across their advertisement. The doctors are very helpful at Fella, I always meet with Dr. Esho, she is always upbeat and very positive. My mom was having a health issue and was at the hospital, one night I was coming home after being at the hospital and I weRead more about Fella is awesome. I am glad I tooknt through a fast food drive through. Next day I had an appointment with Dr. Esho, I told her I was disappointed at myself but I had a taste for a chicken sandwich and didn’t feel like going home to make dinner. Dr. told me not to beat myself up over having fast food. Just don’t make it 5 sandwiches at one time. Which made me feel great! What can I say about Sean! He is great I text him anytime I need too just to let him know I am having great days or bad days. This team really cares about ME! I believe I started out at about 290 plus pounds, as of this past weekend, I am down to 260 pounds in a short amount of time. Let me tell you I’ve tried diets, cardboard food, everything and anything to lose weight. I am over 50 and I feel and look great and people are noticing at work, friends are wondering what I am up too. What I can say is Fella has kept me focused on balancing eating, drinking, and exercise. This program and team got me on track, losing weight, feeling great in my clothes, and about myself overall. If you are like me and have tried everything else give the Fella program a try."

I was dealing with fatty liver disease and a weight-induced pancreas disorder, plus the usual type 2 diabetes, poor sleep/sleep apnea, and a host of physical limitations because of my weight. As of March I am down over 50 pounds and still dropping consistently. As of FebruRead more about I joined Fella in September shortlyary I had reversed my type 2 diabetes and no longer required medication. Coaching regularly, on whatever schedule fits my life that month, and doctor-led medical support have already been life-changing...and I'm only halfway through! I move better, feel better, and look better than I have in years."

WHY IS FELLA FOCUSED ON MEN?

Research shows men are underserved by existing programs helping patients with obesity get to a healthier weight. When you join Fella, you are matched with a cohort of men like you to go on this journey together.

WHY TAKE MEDICATION TO GET TO A HEALTHIER WEIGHT?

Obesity is complex. Far more complex than just "eat less & exercise more". Board-certified obesity doctors regularly prescribe FDA-approved medications, including what are called GLP-1s: glucagon-like peptide-1s. In peer-reviewed research these medications, in combination with lifestyle change, are one of the most effective ways to get to a healthier weight.

Find out more about our medications here.

HOW DOES THE PROGRAM ACTUALLY WORK?

Your metabolic health is affected by stress eating, how well you sleep, and how much you exercise. Researchers call these the pillars of metabolic health. These are difficult habits to change, but evidence suggests improving these pillars is key to long-term success in staying at a healthier weight.

First we get to know you inside and out with blood work, family history, and more. Then you’ll have a 30 minute face-to-face consultation with dedicated clinician who assess the root causes of your weight, and tailors treatment to you with regular check-ins.

What medications will I be prescribed? Are they FDA-approved?

All medications your specialist doctor will prescribe are FDA-approved, and have been scientifically proven to help with tackling obesity. Our weight loss clinicians prescribe a wide-range of weight loss medications including GLP-1s (glucagon-like peptide-1s), which have been safely used for Type 2 diabetes since 2005. GLP-1s help lower your set point by decreasing hunger, increasing satiety, and regulating hormones. Your specialist clinician works with you here to create the best pathway for you, dependent on your health history and your insurance coverage.

How does the medication work?

The clinicians prescribe various weight-loss medications, including GLP-1s (glucagon-like peptide-1s), depending on your personal situation. GLP-1s are naturally occurring hormones that send signals to your brain to decrease your appetite, improve your metabolic function, and increase satiety. Research suggests that people who are at a higher weight show reduction in GLP-1 signalling. The medications that the specialist doctors prescribe work on the same receptors as your natural GLP-1 hormones. Originally developed to treat type 2 diabetes, in 2014 the FDA approved the use of a brand of GLP-1s for tackling obesity in people without type 2 diabetes. The medication prescribed by the specialist doctor isn't a short-term fix. But by safely lowering your set point, the GLP-1 medications available today help you reduce your body weight in combination with lifestyle changes.

How does the Metabolic Assessment & video consultation work?

We connect you with a clinician that specialized in weight loss. If you do not have blood work from the previous 12-months, they will help organize a comprehensive health screening at a local lab. You then talk these through with your clinician to assess your current metabolic health so they can personalize your treatment plan and prescribe medication suited to you. In a video appointment, your specialist clinician will review this screening and your medical history — then answer any of your questions about the treatment plan.

What is included in the lab work?

A comprehensive screening which may include:

  • CBC (complete blood count)

  • CMP (comprehensive metabolic panel)

  • TSH (Thyroid-stimulating hormone)

  • HbA1c (Hemoglobin A1c)

  • Lipid panel

Additional testing may include an EKG (in patients with a history of cardiac disorders and stroke), and a complete thyroid panel depending on your medical history.
