Weight Loss Injections NHS (Obesity Treatment)

Wegovy is a weight loss injection (or obesity treatment) soon to be made available on the NHS, helping obese people maintain a healthy weight.

Obesity doesn’t just affect quality of life for patients, it is one of the biggest challenges our health service is facing. Obese people cost the wider economy billions each year.

Clinical trial evidence shows weight loss injections are an effective weight management option to reduce the body mass index (BMI).

NHS Weight Loss Jab

Our NHS is revered world wide as an outstanding health and care excellence provider, yet they’re struggling under the volume of patients presenting with weight related conditions.

People with obesity are more likely to develop a weight related condition such as:

  • High blood pressure

  • Cardiovascular disease

  • Heart disease

  • Kidney problems

Weight loss injections, soon to be offered by the NHS, are an obesity treatment option that work by regulating the appetite.

The main ingredient in Wegovy, Semaglutide, is a diabetes drug that suppresses the appetite. It mimics glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), convincing the body that it’s full and it doesn’t need to eat any more.

At the same time as suppressing glucagon secretion, it increases insulin secretion, and slows gastric emptying.

By providing this specialist weight management service, the NHS can deliver a more cost effective and safer treatment plan than a gastric band (weight loss surgery – bariatric surgery).

What is an appetite regulating system?

Weight loss drugs such as Wegovy, are an appetite suppressant, which means they make the patient feel fuller and satisfied for longer periods of time, reducing the amount of food they eat.

This makes it easier for someone to stick to their healthy diet even when they’re out at restaurants, or eating with others who may not be on board with the plan.

For the most effective treatment, Wegovy’s weekly injections should be used in conjunction with a reduced calorie intake and exercise plan (diet and exercise) to help lose more weight.

How Do Weight Loss Injections Control Body Weight?

Weight loss injections are a form of medical treatment for obesity. They are effective and safe when used in conjunction with other treatments, such as healthy eating and exercise.

As mentioned above, the injections contain a naturally occurring hormone called GLP-1, which helps the body to feel fuller for longer.

As a result, you should find it easier to resist temptation and eat less overall.

What’s In A Wegovy Weight Loss Injection ?

Wegovy is a weight loss injection (or obesity treatment) soon to be offered by doctors on the NHS. It is an appetite suppressant used to help overweight or obese adults lose weight.

The injection works by reducing how much food you want to eat, as well as making it harder for your body to make fat out of sugar.

The drug is an incretin mimetic – it mimics the effects of the hormone GLP-1 which naturally tells our bodies when we have eaten enough food.

When you eat something sweet, your blood sugar levels rise quite quickly; this causes GLP-1 to be released from cells in your gut which then tell your brain that you have had enough food (satiety).

If a person has high levels of GLP-1 their brain will think they have consumed more than they actually have – so they stop eating sooner than usual.

Clinical trial evidence shows medical intervention has psychological and physical effects even in a placebo group.

Psychological and physical effects of weight loss injections

The most common side effects of weight loss injections are headaches, nausea, vomiting and insomnia.

These are usually mild and short-lived – the injection site may be tender or sore for a day or two after treatment. The injection itself is painless.

Most people will only experience one or two minor side effects after their first treatment session, which usually goes away within a few days or weeks.

If you do have any serious side effects like chest pain or difficulty breathing then you should stop taking your medication and seek medical advice immediately.

If you take over-the-counter painkillers such as paracetamol this can often help reduce the severity of these symptoms if they occur during the first 24 hours after treatment (it’s best not to drive until they’ve stopped).

Are Weight Loss Injections the Right Weight Loss Programme for Me?

While weight loss injections are effective for most people who use them, they’re not a miracle cure.

Most people lose about two stone while on the treatment—you have to follow your doctor’s instructions about what foods you should eat, how much exercise you need each week and how many calories you should consume every day for optimal results.

Are you eligible for Wegovy?

Before you can begin taking Wegovy, we will need to assess whether or not the treatment is suitable for you. This means we’ll need to take into account:

  • Your BMI (body mass index) and whether or not a doctor has told you that your weight is putting your health at risk.

  • If there are any other health conditions or medications which might make it dangerous for you to have the injection.

  • Whether or not another form of treatment would be better suited for helping you lose weight (e.g., supervised weight loss coaching).
