Ozempic weight loss drug
What is a weight loss management service?

For many people, there can be some confusion about what it means to manage their weight, what a healthy weight is, and what steps they should take to ensure they are putting their health and well-being first. At Manchester Pharmacy the term weight management is generally used to refer to the process of adopting long-term changes to your lifestyle. In order to maintain a healthy body weight. These lifestyle changes can include eating healthier, maintaining a balanced diet and increasing your physical activity levels. As well as challenging your mindset around using food as a reward, treat or a way to manage your stress.

Part of our weight management service is figuring out what a healthy weight is for you. This can give you an idea of what kinds of changes you need to make, and whether you may need to lose or gain weight to fall within what is considered a healthy range for your height, age and sex.

What are the health risks?

It’s important to maintain a healthy lifestyle to avoid health risks such as being overweight or obese. Obesity has been one of the fastest-growing health concerns in the UK. Obesity comes with a number of potential health risks, including a higher chance of developing type 2 diabetes, coronary heart disease, certain types of cancer or possibly a stroke.

As much as obesity poses its fair share of health risks, the same goes for being underweight. Those who are underweight can suffer from irregular periods, fertility issues, malnutrition and decreased muscle strength. Both being underweight and overweight can affect your overall health and well being. At Manchester pharmacy our weight management service can provide you with helpful advice. The key to maintaining a healthy weight is making it an integral part of your daily routine.
