Weight Loss Medication

In recent times, weight loss medications have proven to be effective treatment options for people struggling with obesity or weight-related health conditions. When used alongside a healthy balanced diet and regular exercise, the weight loss medications we provide at EU Meds can help you to effectively lose more weight than you would with diet and exercise alone.

More Information

Obesity is a chronic medical condition characterised by the accumulation of excess body fat to the extent that it may have adverse effects on health. It is commonly defined using body mass index (BMI), which is calculated by dividing a person's weight in kilograms by the square of their height in metres (kg/m²). A BMI of 30 or higher is typically considered indicative of obesity. Obesity is associated with an increased risk of various health problems, including type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, certain cancers, and reduced life expectancy.

Obesity is a complex condition influenced by genetic, environmental, behavioural, and societal factors, and there is no single cure for it. However, obesity can often be managed effectively with lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, regular physical activity, behaviour therapy, and, in some cases, medical interventions. Treatment aims to achieve and maintain a healthy weight, improve overall health, and reduce the risk of obesity-related complications. Sustainable weight loss is typically achieved through long-term changes in diet and exercise habits rather than short-term fixes.

Yes, there are several natural approaches that can help with weight management and promote healthy weight loss. These include adopting a balanced and nutritious diet that emphasises whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, whole grains, and healthy fats while limiting processed foods, sugary beverages, and high-calorie snacks. Portion control, mindful eating, regular physical activity such as walking, jogging, cycling, or swimming, adequate sleep, stress management techniques such as meditation or yoga, and staying hydrated by drinking plenty of water can also support weight loss efforts. It is important to focus on sustainable lifestyle changes rather than quick fixes or fad diets.

Weight loss treatment involves a multifaceted approach that addresses various aspects of weight management, including dietary modifications, increased physical activity, behaviour therapy, and, in some cases, medical interventions. Treatment is individualised based on factors such as age, weight, overall health, underlying medical conditions, and personal preferences. It may include working with a registered dietitian or nutritionist to develop a personalised meal plan, participating in structured exercise programs or physical therapy, attending behavioural counselling or support groups, and, if appropriate, considering medications or surgical options for weight loss.

Weight loss treatments come in various forms, including dietary interventions, exercise programs, behavioural therapy, medications, and surgical procedures. Dietary interventions may involve following a structured meal plan, counting calories, or using meal replacement products. Exercise programs may include aerobic exercise, strength training, or other forms of physical activity tailored to individual needs and preferences. Behavioural therapy aims to identify and address underlying psychological factors contributing to overeating or sedentary behaviour. Medications for weight loss may include appetite suppressants, lipase inhibitors, or medications that affect the absorption of nutrients. Surgical options, such as gastric bypass surgery or gastric sleeve surgery, may be considered for individuals with severe obesity or obesity-related health problems.

Some weight loss medications require a prescription from a healthcare provider, especially prescription-strength medications or medications with potential side effects. Over-the-counter supplements or herbal products marketed for weight loss may be available without a prescription, but their safety and efficacy may vary, and it is important to consult with a healthcare provider before starting any new supplements or medications. You should always consult with your doctor or healthcare provider for advice on whether a weight loss treatment is suitable for you. Please note that at EU Meds, all requests for the supply of prescription medications are subject to an online clinical consultation, and the decision to prescribe will be made by a doctor.
