Weight Loss Treatment

Weight Loss Treatment

Our alternative weight loss medication solution.

If you’re living with obesity, you’ve probably already heard the same tired weight-loss advice over and over again. Cut out bread. Eat more kale. Take the stairs instead of the elevator.

Of course, exercise and eating nutritious food are important. But will those steps alone help people with obesity achieve a healthy weight (and lower their risk for other chronic conditions like heart disease, diabetes and fatty liver disease)? Probably not. Obesity isn’t a behavioural problem. Obesity is a chronic disease. A metabolic dysfunction that affects your body right down to the cellular level.

So, when you hear about diabetes medications and their weight loss effects, it’s natural to want to learn more.  

We have an alternative medication that may be more suited to your weight loss goals. This medication is superior for blood sugar control and potential weight loss as it targets two hormones:

  1. GLP-1, a hormone released from your digestive tract that helps lower blood sugar and promotes a feeling of fullness.
  2. Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide, a hormone that stimulates the release of insulin.

It changes how your body reacts to food. It makes you fuller faster and alters your blood sugar levels. That makes it a very powerful tool to manage both diabetes and obesity.

When diet and exercise aren’t enough

But, you may be wondering, what’s with all the talk about anti-obesity medication? Aren’t diet and exercise the keys to weight loss?

For people who are just looking to lose a few pounds, absolutely! Diet, exercise, good sleep and stress management can help you get there. Anti-obesity medications aren’t the answer for people who are just looking to shed a few pounds.

But for people living with obesity, medication is quickly becoming a reliable and effective option when diet and exercise don’t do the trick.

That’s because obesity is more than a matter of weight alone — it’s a dysfunction of the normal pathways that regulate body fat. Living with obesity fundamentally changes the way your body responds to food.

This may mean that, despite your best efforts at eating less and exercising more, the scale may refuse to budge for you.

That happens because when you’re living with obesity, your body adapts to try to keep you around your current weight. When you eat less or exercise more, your body fights to maintain body fat. It fights every inch of the way to keep you from losing weight.

In a way, medications can override those defences. They change the very functioning of your body to help you lose weight and keep it off.

But if you’re living with obesity, it’s worth a conversation with Nurse Practitioner, Emily at Refresh NQ about our alternative medication. She will also provide diet and exercise recommendations in combination with the medication.
