Conditions we treat
This treatment can be used for the following conditions:
Originally developed as an anti-diabetic drug, Saxenda is similar to GLP1, a naturally occurring hormone that is released from the intestine after a meal. It works by acting on appetite-controlling receptors in the brain, making you feel full and less hungry. The effect can help you eat less and in turn, reduce your body weight. Not only does it help you lose weight but keep it off for the long term.
Saxenda is available as a pre-filled pen for subcutaneous (under the skin) injection containing 18mg of liraglutide. The easy-to-use solution is aimed at adults with excess weight, who also have weight-related medical problems or obesity, and obese children aged between 12-17 years.
In a clinical study of people taking Saxenda® for three years, 56% achieved significant weight loss at year one, and half of these patients maintained their weight loss at three years when supplemented with a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity.
Saxenda® is a powerful tool to help combat obesity. When used alongside proper nutrition and exercise, patients benefit from reduced fat levels and a healthy dose of renewed energy, confidence, and lease for life having achieved their weight loss goals.
