The future of weight loss- Weight Loss Injections

12 April 2019


What are weight loss injections?

Here at Weightmedics, we have various medications that our doctors can prescribe to help you on your weight-loss journey. One such group of medications we prescribe are weight loss injections. These are FDA and European-approved prescription injectable medication that is available to those with a BMI >27 to aid with weight-loss and weight-loss maintenance, alongside a healthy diet and lifestyle.

How does it work?

Weight loss injections are self-injectable medicine that comes in a prefilled pen and is taken once a day. Your daily dose should be injected under the skin in either your stomach area, upper leg, or upper arm. You will start by taking the lowest dose and eventually working your way up to a maintenance dose – this is where you will see the greatest weight-loss results. The medication works by activating the area of your brain that regulates appetite; working like a hormone the body naturally produces. By doing so, the medication will significantly reduce your appetite, leading to a reduction in calorie intake. A regular reduction in daily calorie intake will lead to weight loss and help you to achieve your goal weight.

Are there any side effects?

Many of our patients do not have any side effects while taking these injections, however, some common side effects include slight nausea and headache – though these tend to clear up in a day or two. These side effects can be prevented by keeping hydrated and making sure that you are consuming enough food daily. Our weight loss injection programme includes a Nutritionist, who can help guide you along your journey to lose weight effectively and improve your diet and lifestyle.

Are weight loss injections the right choice for me?

Weight loss injections are available to those with a BMI >27, but the best way to find out whether injections are the right medication for you is to come into one of our Weightmedics clinics and have a consultation with both a Patient Care Manager and Doctor during a 30-40-minute period. Your current weight, weight loss goals and previous medical history will be discussed in order to establish which is the most beneficial way for us to help you start your weight loss journey with Weightmedics.
