The risk of diabetes, stroke and heart attack are very much real when you are obese, however hunger pain is equally real and is hard to keep up. Following a low-calorie meal plan is not easy. Crash diets with a rebounding yoyo effect are not ideal paths either. For those who struggle to lose weight, we understand your desire and your frustration, which is why we provide medical weight loss treatments at our clinic. Sometimes, all you need is simply a kickstart and an ignition of motivation. At Harley Street Medical Doctors, we have helped countless of people to achieve their goals.
Saxenda® works by regulating your appetite, it means you will feel less hungry, you will feel full quicker and longer after eating. Imagine standing on the scale, looking at your target weight, all without the hunger pain. Science has evolved, so should we. Studies have shown that Saxenda® helps you to not only lose weight but keep it off as well.
Saxenda® is a long-acting glucagon-like-peptide (GLP-1) agonist. It regulates your appetite and can make you feel full faster, and prolong the sensation of satiety. By not eating as much, you will lose weight and unlike all the other dieting fads out there, this treatment can help keep the weight off. The great thing about Saxenda® is that it is a flexible treatment which can be taken at any time of the day, so your schedule is not impeded. If paired with a healthy diet and a good exercise regime, Saxenda® has proven to be one of the most effective non-invasive treatments out there. Randomised Controlled Trial (RCT) of 3,731 participants shows 9.2% in body weight reduction by taking Saxenda® compared to a placebo. This finding has revolutionised the way we approach medical weight loss management.
If you are clinically obese or overweight with any weight related co-morbid condition, Saxenda® could be the tangible ticket to help you lose weight and improve your health. During your consultation with our doctors, you will be able to discuss your goals in terms of weight loss and ask any questions relating to the treatment. We will record all the vital readings as well as conduct a thorough examination during the 1-hour consultation. A comprehensive blood test will be conducted to confirm if there are no contraindications to the treatment.
We will teach you how to administer Saxenda® and also provide you with all the necessary medical ancillaries. We will explain the protocol to you and help you every step of the way. Monthly follow ups for the first three months are arranged to monitor your progress, ensure your safety and adjust your dosage if required. Your healthcare professional will be on hand to answer any questions or queries should you need them.
The Saxenda® Starter Package includes a 1-hour consultation, an Advanced Health Profile blood test, 5 Saxenda® pens, 100 subcutaneous needles and a sharp box. Your first box of Saxenda® contains 5 pre-filled pens and will last you at least 44 days. We will help you with the first administration at the clinic and give you all the necessary information about the protocol. The great thing about Saxenda is that it can be taken at any time of the day, morning or night, with a meal or without one. Once you have decided on a suitable time for you, you simply need to take it once a day, sit back and watch as the magic unfolds.
