We use Ozempic and Saxenda in our doctor and nurse led weight loss clinic.
How does Ozempic work in your body?
Ozempic mimics a natural hormone in your body called GLP-1 .
This hormone is produced by your digestive system in response to
eating food and it acts on both the brain and the digestive system to
regulate how full you feel after a meal. It also slows down the emptying of your stomach into the rest of your digestive system.
GLP-1 regulates insulin secretion in response to eating meals so
that your blood sugar is better controlled — even lowering blood
sugar levels and reducing your appetite by signalling your brain that
you've eaten a meal. The injectable medication acts just like this natural hormone to make you feel fuller for longer and reduces your cravings for more food. Enhancing the way your body regulates blood sugar levels and the storage of fat can help patients lose weight.
Ozempic can be used to help people lose weight even though
it was originally designed for the treatment of diabetes.
Clinical studies in many patients have shown Ozempic to be safe for weight loss and we know it's the most effective drug available for patients with obesity to lose weight in the UK right now.
The results from recent research trials have been incredibly exciting. Ozempic was tested in 6 key trials (SUSTAIN 1) which involved 7,215 patients. 4,107 patients were treated with Ozempic and the others were in a placebo group with no active drug — or sometimes taking another diabetes treatment.
Treatment with Ozempic demonstrated meaningful weight loss for up to 2 years compared to a placebo or other diabetes treatments.
It's important to note that Ozempic is a pharmaceutical drug and while it's beneficial to help you start your weight loss journey, lifestyle intervention — including sustainable and healthy lifestyle changes — is needed to ensure the weight stays off once you stop taking the drug
Once you begin using Ozempic, some people can find it takes
several weeks to see any weight loss, yet others may see some
weight loss within a week or 2. While it can be difficult, try to remain patient — change looks different for everyone. Using Ozempic, is designed around consistent, sustained gradual
healthy weight loss over time, rather than fad diet plans that can
often give you early rapid weight loss, but at the expense of
reaching your long-term weight loss goals.
How much weight will I lose with Ozempic?
About a third of people who take Ozempic for weight loss will lose
10% or more of their body weight. Most people should expect to
lose at least 5% of their starting body weight when using Ozempic
for weight loss.
We know that people lose weight differently, but those who see the
highest weight reductions are those who are supported by
healthcare professionals — making the lifestyle changes required
for sustainable change much easier. This includes addressing diet, exercise and using behavioural sciences to adapt your food habits.
How long will treatment take?
Most treatments take around 3 months, gradually increasing the Ozempic dose over this period.
Treatment is not required long term, however the results will be long lasting.
Generally, Ozempic is suitable for those who are considered
clinically obese or significantly overweight with a weight-related
