Personalised Consultations: Our weight management service begins with an in-depth consultation with our trained healthcare professionals.

We take into account any underlying medical conditions, medications you may be taking, and your dietary preferences to develop a realistic and sustainable approach.

Our team will help you identify physical activities that suit your preferences and abilities. We can guide you in developing an exercise routine that fits into your daily life, whether it’s through gym workouts, home exercises, or outdoor activities. We will also provide strategies to address behavioural and emotional factors that may influence your eating habits and overall weight management.

If needed, our pharmacists can also prescribe weight management medications.

What are weight management medicines?

Weight management injections and pills are prescription-only medications designed to support obese individuals who are striving to lose weight. Losing weight can be challenging and demotivating when your hard work doesn’t reflect on the scale. However, it is crucial to persevere because shedding excess weight and improving your health can significantly enhance your quality of life, especially for those who are clinically obese. This is where our weight management Clinic in St Katharine Docks & Wapping can assist you.

How do these medicines work?

Different types of weight loss injections and pills function in various ways. For instance, weight loss medications can:

– Prevent your body from absorbing approximately one-third of the fat you consume.
– Weight loss injection can reduce your hunger and make you feel less inclined to eat.
– Control your appetite and cravings.

Are they safe to use?

All medications carry risks, and weight-loss pills are no exception. However, weight-loss injections and pills are available only with a prescription, meaning you cannot purchase them without first undergoing an assessment by a healthcare professional. This ensures that your pharmacist can evaluate your suitability before prescribing them.

Who can take weight management medications? Weight management pills are prescription-only medications for individuals who are clinically obese, which typically corresponds to a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above. If you have diabetes and your BMI is 28 or above, you may also be eligible for weight loss medication.

Weight loss pills should not be used for an extended period. They serve to aid weight loss while incorporating lifestyle changes like adopting a healthy eating plan and increasing physical activity levels.

Who shouldn’t take weight loss medicines?

You should avoid taking weight loss medication if:

– You are pregnant or breastfeeding.
– You are taking anticoagulants like warfarin.
– You have difficulties absorbing nutrients.
– You have liver problems.

Before prescribing weight loss injections or pills, our pharmacists at City Dock Pharmacy will assess their safety for you. This involves a comprehensive consultation and a thorough medical risk assessment.
