Weight loss medication

Weight loss isn’t always easy. Keeping to a strict diet and exercise regime can be hard work, which is why many people look for miracle solutions to their weight issues. While it is important to state that there is no such thing as a magic pill for weight management, there are effective prescription medications on the market that can support weight loss in combination with a healthy lifestyle.

Xenical is a popular and effective medication choice which reduces the amount of fat absorbed during digestion. Similarly, Mysimba is an innovative weight loss medication that serves to reduce appetite and food cravings that stem from the brain.

How does excess weight affect your health?

Obesity is a common problem in the UK. It is estimated that one in every four adults in the UK lives with obesity, as well as one in every five children aged ten to eleven.

The most widely used method of determining whether an individual is overweight or obese is known as the body mass index (BMI). Although this is not a definitive method, most people with a BMI of over 25 are classed as overweight, whilst a BMI over 30 indicates obesity and a BMI over 40 suggests severe obesity.

There are many health risks associated with excess weight and obesity. The most serious of these include type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, stroke and certain types of cancer such as breast cancer and bowel cancer.

Obesity has also been shown to increase the likelihood of mental health problems such as anxiety and depression. This is related to a lack of confidence and self-esteem, as well as a reduction in activity and socialising.

How do we gain weight?

Simply put, excess weight is gained by consuming more calories then you burn off over the course of a day. This is particularly true of calories consumed from fatty and sugary foods as the excess energy is stored in the body as fat.

Changes in society over recent decades have led to a significant rise in obesity levels in the UK over the last 30 years. Factors such as increased sitting (through desk jobs, car journeys and watching television) and unhealthy diets (attributable to sugary drinks, sweets and processed, high calorie foodstuffs like ready meals) are significant contributors to obesity.

Today, it is estimated that around two thirds of men and women in the UK can be categorised as overweight or obese.

Sometimes underlying health conditions like underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism) can increase your risk of developing obesity, unless controlled by medication. If you think that an underlying health condition may be contributing to your excess weight, you should consult your GP as soon as possible.

What are the benefits of weight loss?

For people living with excess weight or obesity, losing just 5% of their weight can lead to health benefits. Reducing your weight to a healthy level can significantly reduce your risk of developing conditions such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke, certain kinds of cancer, osteoarthritis and back pain.

You will also find that you have more energy, increased flexibility and mobility by incorporating a healthy diet and exercise regime into your life. Even breathing becomes easier for people who are no longer obese.

How to lose weight

Weight loss needn’t be a dramatic process, and crash diets are often an unhealthy and temporary route to take. Simply making small, realistic changes to your diet and physical activity levels can help you see results. For adults between the ages of 19 and 64, you should aim for around 150 minutes of moderate physical activity a week.

A healthy diet should consist of three balanced meals a day, including carbohydrates, fruits, vegetables, protein and healthy fats. For men, a healthy diet should consist of around 2,500 calories a day. For women, a healthy diet should consist of around 2,000 calories a day. Avoid processed foods such as ready meals or regular takeaways, as home cooked meals contain fresher ingredients and tend to possess a higher nutritional value.

In cases where a healthy diet and regular exercise are not achieving weight loss, prescription medications such as Xenical and Mysimba have been proven to effectively support weight loss.

Our price promise commitment means that as we match prices nationally, prices will go down (and up) accordingly.

If you see or buy a treatment online and find it cheaper with a high street competitor (whether or not they also sell online), as long as their service conditions are comparable, then we’ll match that price for you or refund the difference. The cost of the treatment must include consultation charges for medication without a prior prescription. Comparable service conditions include factors such as delivery charges and timescales (such as Shutl delivery), and consultation charges.

If you’ve already purchased the treatment online, please make sure you report the price match within 28 days of receiving it. If you’d like to buy the product but want us to price match first, please check that you’re providing the most up to date information you can obtain when you submit your claim.

We’ll be asking you for full details of the treatment, the competitor and their prices, so please do check that you have this information to hand before you contact us.

Please note though, that we won’t refund the difference in price paid if you could have bought the product more cheaply with an online-only retailer: examples of this include chemistdirect.co.uk, who sell only through their websites or mail order and not via high street shops. We also don’t match competitors who are in administration or closing down.
