Losing Weight Can Be Difficult and Demotivating

Is your hard work not reflected on your bathroom scales? Losing weight and improving your health can significantly increase your quality of life and you deserve a healthier future!

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:

  1. Stopping your body from absorbing about one-third of the fat you eat
  2. Making you feel less hungry
  3. Limiting your appetite and cravings
  4. There are 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:

  1. Cardiovascular disease
  2. Diabetes
  3. Stroke
  4. Cancer

But being a healthy weight can also improve many other aspects of your health:

  1. Reduced symptoms of existing conditions such as asthma
  2. Feeling like you have “more energy”
  3. Reduced strain on your joints
  4. Better sleep
  5. More self-confidence and a positive outlook.
  6. Improvement in conditions like erectile dysfunction

The Carters Chemist weight management service can help you with your weight loss journey with our friendly and discrete service.

You can book an appointment for our weight loss service today or contact us for more information.
