Weight Loss Management
One to One Consultation
"The second biggest preventable
cause of cancer: being overweight"
Whether it’s improving your health, self-esteem or confidence our weight loss treatment will help to manage, encourage and support you throughout the treatment.
Weight gain can happen to many people which can lead to loss of confidence. Most of us would like to lose our excess weight quickly, but by losing weigh gradually (1-2lbs per week) you are more likely to keep the weigh off. Having even a small (5-10 percent body weight) weight loss can improve your health, such as blood pressure, blood sugars, energy, and cholesterol while helping to improve your confidence.
At Strathearn Health & Beauty it’s about lifestyle changes not diets, our doctors and staff understand how difficult it can be to reduce the weight. With over 19 years experience in weight management, we have successfully treated many patients over the years. Our clinic offers one to one private consultations to all our patients, no need to worry about getting weighed in front of a crowd.
What happens during my consultation with the clinic doctor?
Clinic doctor will discuss your health questionnaire. Various health checks/tests are carried out, including your height, weight, BMI, blood pressure and pulse (ECG testing can be carried out but is rare), cholestrol, urine and any other test that maybe required.
During consultation, doctor will discuss your weight, what weight loss/BMI target he would expect you to achieve during the 12-week programme and how you can acheive it. Any medication that he may prescribe, including side effects, status of the medication, how to take it and what it is used for.
We advise our patients that they should always take time to think before commencing any of our treatments.
A one to one consultation is carried out each time you attend the clinic, patients are required to attend regular for weight management monitoring. Patients can attend out with appointments (weight check only).
Sharing of medical information is strongly advised between patient’s own medical professionals.
What is the medication?
The medication is to help suppress the appetite only dispensed by the clinic doctors to patients that are suitable and under UK guide lines. The clinic doctors write a prescription and supply the medication through the clinic. The medication is manufactured in UK.
The programme runs consistently for up to 12 weeks. During this time you are given support and information by the clinic doctors and medical staff. We recommend to all patients after losing the weight to regularly attend the clinic for weight check only.
Some of the criteria for the weight loss treatment are:-
- Body Mass Index (BMI) above 27.
- 18+ years
- If using the appetite suppressant as part of the treatment patients cannot be on any medication that may contradict (example anti-depressants for depression, tranquilizers, any blood thinning medication or diabetes type 1) these are only some of the examples.
