Weight Loss Treatment
FDA Approved Weight Loss Treatment
- Clinically tested & FDA approved
- Reduces appetite
- Increases metabolism
After a consultation with one of our expert healthcare professionals, regarding weight control, you may be prescribed an FDA-approved prescription treatment designed to aid weight loss in individuals who are clinically overweight.
This treatment works to regulate appetite by slowing down the rate at which your stomach empties.
A thorough compulsory GP consultation is carried out to assess your suitability for treatment, and to discuss your weight loss and health goals. Blood tests and vital readings will be taken to ensure you can proceed with the treatment. To qualify for the weight loss treatment, individuals will have a BMI of 30 + who are struggling to lose weight organically, who have medical conditions such as type 2 diabetes or heart disease, or who are preparing for bariatric surgery.
This GP-supervised treatment has also been proven to improve physical health by reducing low blood glucose levels, lessening susceptibility to high blood pressure, tempering sleep apnea, having a profound positive impact on your mental wellbeing, as well as instilling healthier long-term dietary and exercise habits.
The weight-loss treatment regulates appetite through the release of GLP-1, one of the body’s natural gut hormones. This hormone slows down the rate at which your stomach empties. As a result, patients find their hunger is quenched with smaller meals, and they are able to refrain from eating as often as they would prior to treatment.
The treatment is self-administered and our GP will explain how to safely do so. We will also ask you to attend follow-up appointments each month for the first 3 months of treatment, to oversee your progress, address any concerns and make any necessary adjustments.
There is no fixed total time period for this weight loss treatment. Your GP will discuss the duration of the treatment during your consultation as it will be affected by your starting weight, goals and progress.
If your weight loss is less than your GP expected, they may wish to discuss how diet and exercise can be optimised with you at your follow-up consultation, in order to boost the results of treatment.
Treatment is most effective when calorie intake is reduced by 500 a day and physical activity is increased to 30 minutes daily.
This treatment starts with a thorough GP consultation to discuss your weight, goals and expectations. The weight-loss treatment is a course of self-administered injections, after which you will follow up with your GP for 3 months to oversee your progress and make any adjustments.
There is no fixed number of treatments one individual nears as it is very specific to the patients’ personal parameters. The number of treatments needed depends on your weight and goals, both of which will be discussed in a lengthy GP consultation.
You’ll work with your GP to follow a low-calorie meal plan and increase your physical activity while managing this weight loss treatment.
