Medication to help tackle the root cause.

Obesity is complex. Far more complex than just "eat less & exercise more". Specialist doctors prescribe FDA-approved medications, including what are called GLP-1s: glucagon-like peptide-1s. In peer-reviewed research these medications, in combination with lifestyle change, are one of the most effective ways to get to a healthier weight.

Work with your biology.

GLP-1s made by your body are powerful hormones that send signals to your brain to decrease your appetite, improve your metabolic function, and increase satiety. Research suggests that people who are at a higher weight show reduction in GLP-1 signaling.

The medications that specialist doctors prescribe work on the same receptors as your natural GLP-1 hormones. Originally developed to treat type 2 diabetes, in 2014 the FDA approved the use of a brand of GLP-1s for tackling obesity in people without type 2 diabetes.

The medication prescribed by your specialist doctor isn't a short-term fix. But by safely lowering your set point, the GLP-1 medications available today help you reduce your body weight.

Your doctor, here for you.

How does the medication work?

The specialist doctors normally focus on GLP-1 medications (glucagon-like peptide-1s), depending on your personal situation.

Research suggests that people who are at a higher weight show reduction in GLP-1 signalling.

The medications that the specialist doctors prescribe work on the same receptors as your natural GLP-1 hormones. Originally developed to treat type 2 diabetes, in 2014 the FDA approved the use of a brand of GLP-1s for tackling obesity in people without type 2 diabetes.
