Weight loss with medication at home

The best way to lose weight is to reduce the amount we consume, make healthier choices and increase our activity levels. This way, our bodies use up fat stores to make up the extra energy needed to function, and our weight falls. Making small changes and integrating them into daily life can make a big difference.

We know that sticking to a strict diet and exercise regime is easier said than done – it was our own struggles with weight loss that led us to research medical-based approaches to boost our efforts. As a result, we are now partners in the National Weight Loss Programme, and are helping ourselves, and our patients, reach weight loss goals.

Our new DiscoverLight™ programme targets internal visceral fat that causes health issues.

SLIMMING MEDICATION
Firstly, we prescribe a medication that curbs hunger and reduces appetite, so you can still enjoy the healthy foods you love but feel less inclined to overeat. This helps to increase your willpower as you commit to restricting food intake, making healthier choices and increasing daily activity levels.

COMMITMENT FROM YOU
Medication will only get you so far on your weight loss journey. To reach your weight loss goals you will need to commit to making changes to your diet and increasing activity. We can help you do this in a way that integrates easily into your daily life.

SUPPORT FROM US
Ongoing support, motivation and guidance from our clinical team will keep you on track to living life lighter and healthier.

At your DiscoverLight™ Consultation, you will meet with Doctor Montero to discuss your lifestyle, eating habits and weight loss goals. He will perform a medical assessment and health screening (which includes taking bloods to check your suitability for treatment), and he will discuss your individualised treatment plan with you.

At your follow up consultation, you will receive the results of your blood test, confirming whether you are suitable for treatment.

If it is okay for you to have treatment, you will receive your first month’s supply of medication and instructions on how to administer it at home.

If you are not suitable for our DiscoverLight™ Programme, Doctor Montero will discuss alternatives that are available.

We can successfully treat people with a BMI over 30 (27 in certain cases).

Yes.

You will be given a full health screening before being prescribed medication by our doctor – this ensures your suitability for treatment. The weight loss medications we prescribe are NICE* Approved appetite suppressants. They have a long track record for safely and successfully treating weight loss and obesity.

The medication works by increasing one or more brain chemicals that affect appetite. When you eat, you’ll only consume a small amount before feeling full.

The weight loss medication is administered by injection. It comes in a quick and easy to use injection pen, similar to an insulin injection. It’s quick, easy and comfortable to do yourself at home.

The medications are designed to curb your appetite, helping you to eat less in order to lose weight. It’s important that what you do eat is nutritious, and we encourage you to make healthy choices.

We all know that being active is good for your health, wellbeing and your waistline. We also know that the thought of exercise can be daunting. We encourage you to take small steps (quite literally) to build up your weekly activity levels, and will help incorporate simple activities into your week that work best for you and your fitness level.

As with all weight-loss programmes, results can’t be guaranteed, but dramatic weight-loss can be achieved with the right level of commitment and our support.

The road to weight loss and better health can be a long and difficult one. We are committed to giving people an easier route and helping them live life lighter and healthier.
