Medical management for weight loss
Spire Manchester Hospital is also able to offer medical management for weight loss. Many people seek help with weight loss but have difficulty accessing professionals who can offer sufficient help and support to allow optimal success, that is maintained in the long term. Spire Manchester Hospital offers a six month weight management program that includes both dietician, specialist nurse and medical support.
For some individuals dietary support and medication can help to maintain a healthy weight and improve quality of life. Treatments such as Orlistat (Xenical) which reduces the absorption of fat from your diet can be used in conjunction with a healthy diet, lifestyle changes and exercise.
Individuals with a BMI greater than 27kg/m² - 28.0 kg/m² with associated risk factors or a BMI of greater than 30 kg/m² may benefit from this type of treatment. Close monitoring is required at the hospital on a two weekly basis during prescription of these drugs to ensure that there are no medical complications associated with the drugs and you are supported throughout this treatment.
