What is a medical weight loss programme?
For patients who are obese (BMI 30+) or overweight (BMI 27-30) with an associated co-morbidity (eg high blood pressure, high cholesterol etc) who have struggled with weight loss programmes previously, we are able to consider scientifically proven weight loss medication.
In appropriate cases this will involve prescribing medication, commonly referred to as ‘Skinny Pen’ or ‘Skinny Jab’, to be taken at home which utilises an appetite suppressing hormone which is usually produced naturally in the body after eating. This allows patients to go onto a low calorie diet (around 1200 kcal/day) without feeling hungry. Throughout the process, we would recommend an exercise programme of at least 30 minutes 5 times a week. The weight loss results from this programme can be phenomenal and truly life-changing.
Our appetite suppressant ‘Skinny Pens’ are either administrated on a daily or weekly basis. Clinical trials have shown the weekly medication to be 3-times more effective than the daily medication.
We will monitor you at least every 4 weeks during your programme, however we are always on hand to provide assistance between your review appointments should you require.
Do medical weight loss programmes work?
Our medical weight loss programmes are backed by robust scientific research. Studies have shown that patients who embark upon a medically-assisted weight loss programme are significantly more likely to achieve achieve their desired weight loss and sustain it over 2 years compared to those who used a placebo.
Are medical weight loss programmes safe?
Providing patients are properly assessed and managed before and during their programme, appetite suppressive medication is a safe and effective method of helping to achieve significant and sustainable weight loss. As with all medications, there are potential side effects which are temporary and affect a minority of patients.
Am I a candidate for medical weight loss?
For patients aged between 18-75 who are obese (BMI 30+) or overweight (BMI 27-30) with an associated co-morbidity (eg high blood pressure, high cholesterol etc) who have struggled with weight loss programmes previously, we are able to consider scientifically proven weight loss medication.
At your consultation, we will be able to assess your suitability based these indicators, your medical history and motivation to loose weight.
