Cutting-Edge Treatments

Hailed as a ‘game changer’ in obesity management, these medications have demonstrated remarkable results. Research indicates that over 15 months, Wegovy users experienced an average weight loss of 15%, provided they followed a calorie-controlled diet and exercise regime. In contrast, the placebo group saw only a 2.4% reduction. These promising results underscore the potential effectiveness of our bespoke weight loss service.

Frequently Asked Questions

The medications are called GLP-1 medications. They work by mimicking the action of a naturally occurring hormone in the body GLP-1. This GLP-1 is a hormone that plays a role in appetite regulation and insulin secretion.

When we eat, our bodies release hormones to help us feel full and control blood sugar. GLP-1 is one of these important hormones. It tells our brains we’re satisfied, slows down how quickly our stomachs empty, and helps our bodies use sugar properly.

Mounjaro and Wegovy are medications that act like these natural hormones to help with weight loss. Both medications copy the GLP-1 hormone, but Mounjaro also copies another hormone called GIP. GIP helps control blood sugar and how our bodies store fat.

Because Mounjaro mimics both GLP-1 and GIP, it’s thought to be more effective than Wegovy, which only mimics GLP-1. Both medications can help you feel less hungry, eat less, and manage your blood sugar, but clinical studies have shown that Mounjaro may lead to greater weight loss overall.

It’s a personal preference which medication to choose, but our doctors are always on hand to guide you to help make your decision.

You can always choose to start a different medication from your initial choice after your consultation.

When you first start taking a GLP-1 weight loss medication like Wegovy or Mounjaro you may start to notice in your appetite within the first few weeks. After that you can start losing weight quickly, at 12 weeks you should expect to see a weight loss of at least 5% of your initial body weight.

The effectiveness is also determined by your diet and level of exercise being undertaken alongside the treatment.

 

Our trained GPs will conduct a detailed assessment, to ensure the treatment is correct for you. Until this review there is no guarantee regarding your suitability for the treatment.

They will discuss your goals for treatment and the reasons for your weight gain. They can also arrange further blood testing if indicated.

At the end of the consultation, they can prescribe one month of your chosen weight loss treatment and give you an action plan for the healthy lifestyle changes to implement alongside the medications.

As these medications have only recently become available in the UK, you will be closely monitored by our doctors to ensure your safety and peace of mind. At each review the doctor will monitor your weight, check any side effects and review the dosage of the medication. You are free to ask any questions you may have.

Side effects can occur when taking these medications. The most common include gastro-intestinal effects including nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, abdominal pain. Other common effects include: Headache, tiredness, indigestion, dizziness. Injection site reactions.

More serious side effects include: Pancreatitis/ gallstones/ gallbladder inflammation (severe abdominal pains)  Anaphylaxis or worsening of kidney function, (especially in patients with pre-existing kidney conditions). Risk of thyroid C-cell tumors (based on animal studies). Symptoms include a lump in the neck, hoarseness, difficulty swallowing, or shortness of breath. Low blood sugar particularly when used with other diabetes medications.
We will give you contact details which you can call if you are concerned or have symptoms. Our doctors are at hand to help.

If you are experiencing severe side effects we advise you contact 111/999 or attend A&E.

Yes, of course. There is no obligation or lock in period for our services. However, it is important to do so under the guidance of your healthcare provider. Stopping the injections abruptly or without proper planning can have implications for your weight loss journey and overall health.
