Saxenda® is a weight loss treatment containing the medication liraglutide.
Saxenda® weight loss injection offers effective and reliable weight loss by controlling appetite, curbing hunger and reducing cravings for sweet and fatty foods. Liraglutide is very similar to a naturally occurring hormone in the body that the intestine releases after eating. It works by acting on receptors in the appetite control centre of the brain making you feel fuller and less hungry.
By reducing your appetite Saxenda® will help you keep to a calorie-controlled diet and achieve your weight loss goals. Medical studies have shown patients treated with Saxenda® achieve significantly more weight loss and maintain that loss compared to patients dieting alone. Saxenda® requires a daily injection of the medication that you will administer with an easy-to-use pre-filled injection pen.
After a thorough examination and assessment to check suitability,l show you how and where to inject at your initial appointment.
Saxenda® weight loss injection is very similar to a naturally occurring hormone in the body that the intestine releases after eating and therefore has minimal side-effects and strain on the body. Through the weight loss achieved, it can help to improve any weight-related health issues you may have.
Your weight loss progress will be assessed regularly. The side-effects of Saxenda® are minimal and usually settle within the first weeks of treatment if they occur at all. There a few medical conditions where Saxenda® may not be suitable for you. I will discuss this with you and suggest an alternative appetite-suppressant if appropriate.
