Hello Zone Insiders,
Are you considering prescription weight loss medication but unsure of where to start? We understand that the entire process can seem daunting, with various factors to consider, from qualifying for a prescription to dealing with usage. In this Zone Insider article, we aim to help you navigate the world of prescription weight loss medication and provide key tips to ensure a smooth journey towards achieving your weight loss goals.
Qualifying for Prescription Weight Loss Medication:
The first step in exploring prescription weight loss medication is to consult with our endocrinologists. We as professionals can evaluate your unique situation and determine if you are a candidate for weight loss medication. We will consider factors such as your body mass index (BMI), fat mass percentage, any weight-related medical conditions you may have, and your previous attempts to lose weight through diet and exercise.
Understanding Different Medications:
Prescription weight loss medications are designed to be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise. The doctors and experts at Zone.Health will recommend, guided by scientific protocols, the most suitable medication for you based on your eating behavior, health data, and other health conditions. Currently, three medications have been FDA-approved for chronic weight management: Wegovy® (semaglutide), Saxenda® (liraglutide), and Alli® (orlistat).
Wegovy® and Saxenda® are GLP-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1s), which help control blood sugar levels and reduce appetite. Additionally, there are other similar medications that can be used off-label to treat obesity and excess weight such as Mounjaro® and Ozempic® under the guidance of Zone.Health experts.
The Importance of Professional Guidance:
Weight loss medications, like any medication, can have side effects and potential interactions with other drugs you may be taking. This is why it’s crucial to have professional guidance when considering them. Our team of clinicians at Zone.Health has extensive experience in obesity medicine and can help you navigate the potential side effects, risks, and benefits associated with weight loss medications.
