Weight Management Program - State Regulations

Kentucky Board of Medical Licensure
New Regulations February 1997

"A physician should not initiate or continue prescribing a Schedule III or IV anorectic drug if:(1) The patient has a BMI less than 27 unless the BMI is between 25 and 27, and the patient has a co-morbidity, including but not limited to:(a) diabetes mellitus(b) hypertension(c) dyslipidemia(d) cardiovascular disease"

In lay terms, this means that to be eligible to take prescription diet pills in the state of Kentucky, you must weight more than the weight in the 27 BMI column, unless you have high cholesterol, diabetes, high blood pressure, or heart disease, in which case you must weigh more than the weight in the 25 BMI column.

What Our Patients are saying...


"I thought losing weight had to be hard, boy was I wrong"
"Thank you Dr. Stege, my daughter is a new person!"
"Fear was keeping me from losing weight, don't let it keep you from being thinner."
"They helped me realize being heavy was not my fault."

"I did it for me, but the fact that everyone else noticed isn't bad either ."
"I lost the weight but I didn't have to do it alone."
