The National Medical Weight Loss Programme
We are delighted to announce that we are a certified partner of The National Medical Weight Loss Programme.
The National Medical Weight Loss Programme is a doctor led service. You are given the choice of either a daily or weekly management pen injection as a pharmacological aid to weight loss OR you can elect to take a daily tablet (by mouth). The pen or tablet makes you feel full up; satiety. This is the feeling of being full after eating. Early satiety is feeling full sooner and this is what the programme aids to provide. It tells the brain that you feel full and therefore you can re-train the brain to learn new control and new behaviour patterns; improving the relationship with food. It is NOT a long term management plan, it is to be considered as a rapid 4 month weight loss programme with the aid of an FDA approved appetite suppressant. There are many evidenced reported health benefits to losing weight quickly, reduction in stress on the heart, reduction in diabetic meds, lower cholesterol, increased motivation and many other significant health benefits...
One of the keys to successful weight loss is motivation which is difficult if you are stuck in a cycle of comfort eating and weight is a barrier to exercise. Weight management is not just about dieting; it's about changing lifestyle patterns, attitudes, emotions attached to eating and drinking all combined together with support from family and friends and......... us.
We already know the changes that have to be identified in our life to create healthy patterns of behaviour and here at the clinic this does not change, we can help with:
- Behavioural Interventions
- Physical activity increase
- Stress management
- Self- monitoring
- Sleep management
- Diet and Nutrition advice
..but 'we' may need a little extra help. The Laser and Skin Clinic now offers a structured programme including cryolipolysis (Fat Freezing) with or without Injections directly into fat (Allergan), diet and nutrition advice, work out equipment (coming soon), and muscle stimulation devices to tighten and tone muscles.
A consultation is paramount to identify if you are a candidate for the programme. No information can be given to assess your medical weight and BMI until the assessment tests have been completed as these are unique to you.
Doctor Supervised Personal Weight Loss Programme:
Stage 1 Weight Loss Risk Assessment
You will be required to complete an online Weight Loss Risk Assessment form to check if your weight is healthy and to determine your suitability for the programme.
Stage 2 Online consultation with the doctor
Next you will book a consultation with our doctor to discuss your BMI and Weight Loss Risk Assessment form. If you qualify for the programme and decide to go ahead you will complete the Appetite Suppressant Consent Form with the doctor who will discuss the treatment and answer any of your questions.
Stage 3 Starting the programme
Following this appointment the medication will be ordered and delivered directly to your home. When you receive the delivery please inform the clinic and we will send you a video to show you how to use the product, if you decide to use the injections. You will be required to have a review appointment after the first 2 weeks and then every 4 weeks to monitor your progress and to check your blood pressure. If you do not lose a minimum of 5% of your weight after 4 months we will stop the programme.
It is recommended that you follow a healthy diet combined with daily exercise to optimise the success of the programme.
Additional weight loss support is available with our Dietician and Psychologist if required.
