Medical Weight Loss
MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS?
The National Medical Weight Loss Programme (NMWLP) offers you medical support, advice, education, and treatment options to help you on your weight loss journey, which is approved by nursing and obesity associations.
Designed as a medically supervised and holistic route to weight loss for those who are overweight (BMI 25 – 29.9) or obese (BMI over 30), we are able to provide a multi-disciplinary approach. This will help you to develop new thinking around what you eat, your relationship with food and cravings, the type of exercise you undertake, including providing help with joint problems which may be stopping you from exercising, nutritional supple- mentation and hormone therapies where required, as well the option to provide UK licensed and FDA approved medications to assist with weight loss, where suitable following a medical consultation.
You may have tried many options to achieve weight loss, including well-known diet plans and slimming classes, such as Weight Watchers, Slimming World, MyFitnessPal, Atkins, 5:2, Keto etc. The NMWLP can work alongside these and we often find that GPs and other practitioners refer people onto our programme who are still struggling to achieve significant weight reduction and long-term weight management.
Frequently Asked Questions
Following a consultation and assessment of your suitability for treatment, medication may be prescribed. As with any new medication, you may experience some side effects, which is why the NMWLP is a medically supervised programme where you can be monitored throughout. The most common side ef- fects are nausea, indigestion, constipation, or diarrhoea. How- ever, these usually settle after a short period of time.
Our friendly support team are on hand to answer any questions you may have when embarking on the NMWLP. You should al- ways bear in mind that by losing weight you are reducing the risk of developing chronic conditions such as heart disease, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes and even cancer. Weight reduction will also relieve the symptoms of osteoarthritis and joint pain. Please also remember that successful weight loss will help you feel happier and healthier, with an improved sense of well-being and a new found joy for life.
