Losing weight can be difficult and demotivating if your hard work isn’t being reflected on your bathroom scales. But losing weight and improving your health can significantly increase your quality of life. And this is especially true for people who are clinically obese.
We offer a weight loss service from our in-store clinic. There, we can offer advice and support for losing weight. Also, we offer a range of private medications that are proven to aid weight loss.
What are weight-loss medications?
Weight loss tablets are a prescription-only medication designed to support obese people who are trying to lose weight. Each type of weight loss tablets works in different ways. For example, weight loss medications can work by:
- – Stopping your body from absorbing about one-third of the fat you eat
- – Making you feel less hungry
- – Limiting your appetite and cravings
There also meal replacement plans.
Are weight loss pills safe?
All medications come with risks and weight-loss tablets, like Orlistat and Xenical, are no different.
However, weight-loss tablets are available as a prescription-only medication meaning you cannot buy them without first being assessed by a healthcare professional. This means that your pharmacist can ensure your suitability before prescribing them.
Weight loss pills are prescription-only medication for people who are clinically obese. This means a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above. If you have diabetes and your BMI is 28 or above you may also be able to receive weight loss medication.
Weight loss tablets are not long term treatments. These tablets are designed to support weight loss while also making lifestyle changes, such as healthy eating and increasing activity levels.
What are the benefits of losing weight?
There are many benefits to losing weight. Maintaining a healthy weight can help reduce your risks of developing serious conditions including:
- – Cardiovascular disease
