The National Medical Weight Loss Programme (NMWLP) utilises a range of medications to promote healthy weight loss
Saxenda ( Liraglutide)
Is a prescription only once daily injection that you adminsiter yourself to aid weight loss. Saxenda contains the active ingrediant Liraglutide, which is like the naturally occuring hormone GLP-1. The injection works by reducing hunger, increasing satisfaction, slowing down the emptying of your stomach giving you a fuller for longer feeling.
The drug is licensed in the UK for weight loss, when used in conjunction with an active lifestyle and a balanced diet.
Ozempic ( Semaglutide)
Is a prescription only once weekly injectable medicine that you administer yourself.
Similar to Saxenda, Ozempic stimulates insulin secretion and reduces glucagon ( both hormones released by the pancreas) which can help reduce the risk of Type 2 diabetes, and help prevent heart disease and strokes.
We are proud partners of the National Medical Weight Loss Programme offering a remote service for medical weight loss solutions
