I highly recommend Dr. Sue. I started a weight loss program last December and have been able to keep off 20 lbs this year. She and her assistant Julie are wonderful, always taking time to fully explain the program and answer my questions. If you’re looking to shed A LOT of extra weight and keep it off, Dr. Sue is for you! ~ Google
What is a Peptide?
A peptide is a condensed chain of amino acids that binds to receptors on the cell surface and gives instructions to cells to do very precise tasks. It has been demonstrated that a few peptides can increase growth hormone levels in the body on their own. Certain peptides direct particular cells to produce and release hormones.
Peptides that are produced naturally serve a variety of purposes, including those of hormones, growth factors, and neurotransmitters. Consequently, using peptides for medical treatment offers a way to target a variety of cells and control their response. The focused usage of peptides has the ability to rewrite bodily chemistry interactions and progress toward regenerative health through cell signaling amino acid sequences.
How does Peptide Therapy for medical weight loss work?
Peptides function by controlling enzymes and assisting in various bodily processes, acting as a secondary messenger to the cells inside the body. Because peptides do not fundamentally alter cellular DNA, there are no long-term negative side effects from peptide-induced cell interference.
Who is a candidate for Peptide Therapy?
Men and women in generally good health interested in medical weight loss with the Hamptons Medical Weight Loss Doctor are typically candidates for peptide therapy. During the initial consultation with the triple board certified physician, you will undergo a set of routine diagnostic tests to determine your eligibility and ultimately the best customized treatment to suit your unique anatomical needs. Peptide therapy is not a replacement for healthy diet and routine exercise. The medical weight loss programs offered by the top rated weight loss specialist doctor must be paired with healthy lifestyle in order to develop optimal results. Patients will work directly with our highly trained nutritionists to learn / practice healthy lifestyle habits that promote wellness.

How can Peptide Therapy help me lose weight?
Research shows that peptides (which naturally occur in the human body) can aid individuals with a variety of ways, including weight loss. There are over 7,000 known peptides and around 100 FDA-cleared for safe human consumption. Depending on the patient’s ultimate prescribed treatment method, individuals can expect daily, weekly, or bi-weekly peptide injections.
