Weight Management Consultations

If you have been struggling with losing weight for a long period of time, you know the toll it can take on your lifestyle and mental health. And with over two thirds of the Scottish population classed within the overweight and obese categories, it’s no surprise so many of us are looking to lose weight.

But for many, losing weight isn’t simple. Many may have difficulty exercising, various risk factors or simply do not have the support required to maintain a weight loss programme.

At Clinetix, we offer Weight Management Consultations to advise you on how to safely lose weight.

Treatment available in Bothwell, Glasgow City Centre and Grampian.

Frequently Asked Questions

At Clinetix we offer a variety of treatments that focus on the overall wellbeing of individuals, including medical weight management. This program refers to the treatment of overweight and obesity through medical interventions, supervised by medical professionals.  Our medical weight management program aims to help individuals achieve and maintain a healthy weight, improve overall health, and reduce the risk of obesity-related complications such as diabetes, heart disease, and joint problems. It typically involves a comprehensive approach that includes:

  • Assessment and Evaluation
  • Medical Interventions: This may include prescribing medications approved for weight loss
  • Behavioural Therapy: Helping individuals understand the factors contributing to their weight gain and develop strategies to make sustainable lifestyle changes.
  • Diet and Exercise: Guidance on nutrition and exercise tailored to individual needs and health conditions.
  • Monitoring and Follow-Up: Regular monitoring of progress, adjustments to the treatment plan as needed, and ongoing support are crucial components of medical weight management.

Medical Management and Advice; obesity is now recognised as a disease, one that can cause many significant health complications. However, we see a lot of overprescribing weight loss medications without the necessary education and support but what is actually needed is seeing each person as an individual and offering bespoke advice as part of their weight management programme.

To ensure a patient is a good candidate for weight loss medications, we offer a very thorough evaluation of everything in a patient’s medical history, possible medical conditions or daily habits that are leading to weight gain or preventing weight loss. We also explore motivations for losing weight and impact on someone’s self-esteem and offer advice to make that person look and feel their best.

Yes, we will measure your height, weight, calculate your Body Mass Index and this will guide us on deciding an individual weight loss plan.

Once we prescribe your weight loss medication, we will make a clear plan in terms of dosages but also lifestyle modifications specifically regarding healthy eating and exercise to ensure you get the most out of your weight loss programme.

In most cases, weight gain and obesity are not simply due to poor lifestyle choices but a chronic problem that needs medical intervention. Unfortunately, there is a massive industry preying on such vulnerable individuals who are looking for a quick fix. But what they really need is a long-term plan through their medical weight loss journey and that is what we offer here at Clinetix. From our first consultation through to monthly in-clinic reviews we ensure the individual feels supported to reach their target weight.

As part of the consultation, it is important to thoroughly evaluate an individual’s past medical history, family history and risk factors related to obesity. This will tell us if you can safely become part of our weight management programme.

Like any medication, weight loss drugs have their own risk-benefit profile. For someone who has tried multiple non-medical interventions, the risk-benefit profile is really different. So, if you look at the main common side effects like nausea, reflux, constipation compared to untreated obesity and all its major complications like heart disease and diabetes, then it is clear that we are talking about a totally different risk-benefit profile. During the consultation we will discuss common and less common side effects while offering advice and support should any of these arise.

Assuming the patient is suitable to start treatment, we can provide the first injection under supervision the same day as the consultation.

Yes, you can carry on with your daily routine as normal. Should you experience any mild side effects, you may need some downtime until you feel better, but these tend to settle quite quickly. 

While there is no specific interaction between the weight loss medication we prescribe and alcohol documented in clinical trials, alcohol consumption can affect blood sugar levels and may have other health implications. Alcohol contains calories and may contribute to weight gain or hinder weight loss efforts, which can counteract the goals of a weight management program. Furthermore, alcohol can interact with certain medications and may exacerbate certain side effects. We can provide personalised guidance based on your medical history, current health status, and any other medications you may be taking to advise individuals how alcohol consumption may impact the treatment. 

Weight regain after discontinuing Weight Management medication is possible, but it’s not certain. The extent of weight regain can vary among individuals and depends on various factors including lifestyle habits, diet, exercise, and metabolic factors. The medication we prescribe works by helping to regulate appetite and promote weight loss. When individuals discontinue the medication, they may experience changes in appetite and metabolic rate, which could contribute to weight regain if lifestyle habits aren’t adequately maintained. To minimise the risk of weight regain after stopping Weight Management Medication, it’s important to develop sustainable lifestyle habits, including a balanced diet and regular physical activity. It’s essential to have realistic expectations and understand that weight management is a lifelong process that requires ongoing commitment and effort.
