what to expect
The National Medical Weight Loss Programme (NMWLP) uses an FDA approved medication, which is licensed for weight management. The medication has passed numerous clinical trials for safety and is the only approved injectable prescription medicine available in the UK for weight management.
With our weight loss programme, adding the medication to a sensible meal and exercise plan helps you lose weight and keep it off. As well as helping patients lose weight, the prescription medication has shown in clinical studies to improve many cardiovascular co-morbidities, such as pre-diabetes, hypertension, high lipid levels and obstructive sleep apnoea.
HOW TO START
The medication will work as an appetite suppressant. Delivery is via a virtually painless injection taken daily or weekly, that messaging system is activated. It then makes you feel less hungry, feel fuller quicker and fuller for longer. This should lead to significant weight loss.

The dose can increase and decrease depending on a number of factors, for example if you are still feeling hungry and not losing weight after a few weeks on a set dose we will assess again and recommend a different dose. Alternatively, if you are feeling many side effects of a higher dose then we will reduce the dose. Weekly reviews with the our team are essential to ensure the best possible outcome is achieved.
