At Manchester pharmacy we are proud to offer our expert weight management service. Ozempic has gained a lot of media attention lately due to its effectiveness in helping people to lose weight. It may be beneficial for some individuals suffering with obesity but it can be potentially harmful for some people. At Manchester pharmacy our consultants are able to provide expert advice on the suitability of Ozempic as part of our holistic weight management service following a detailed face to face consultation and medical history.  

How can Ozempic be used for weight loss?

Ozempic can be used as a weight loss drug as it slows down how fast the food you eat travels through your digestive tract. This can make it feel as though your stomach is fuller for a longer period of time. Therefore, reduce how much food you consume, resulting in weight loss. Your digestive system will break down your food into sugars. It will power the cells in your body more smoothly and slowly. Ozempic can improve your blood glucose control and likely also reduce the chances of you developing diabetes. However, as with most drugs, Ozempic also has risks and side effects. For instance, nausea, constipation, diarrhoea, vomiting and abdominal pain. Furthermore there are possible risks such as Thyroid tumours and cancers for some patients. This is why it is necessary to have a detailed medical assessment before using this drug.

How long does it take to lose the weight?

Once a person begins using Ozempic, they can start to see their weight loss results within a few weeks. Ozempic can help individuals to gradually lose weight over time and healthily, rather than crash diets which can result in rapid weight loss a lot of the time.

If you are considering using Ozempic for losing weight then book an appointment on our weight management service page for a consultation today. During your consultation, we will take a detailed medical history/examination, providing a holistic approach to weight loss and careful assessment to advise if you are suitable for Ozempic and ensuring you understand both the risks and benefits of using this drug. If this drug is suitable for you, this can be prescribed for you in our clinic.
