Weight Loss Medications
Most of our patients use weight loss medication, and we provide the newest, most comprehensive medications available.
What are weight loss medications?
Weight loss medications can be found in many places and their levels of effectiveness can vary. In order to get the most out of weight loss medication, it is important to remember two things. One, you should only take weight loss medicine that is prescribed by a medical professional. Two, we should think about weight loss medication as a tool, not a solution.
Most of our patients use weight loss medication, and we provide the newest, most comprehensive medications available. These medications have all been approved by Health Canada. We also provide online dietician support when you receive medicinal injections.
We treat obesity as a chronic disease, and as such, we believe that medicinal support is needed. Fighting obesity can be tough, and we utilize multiple approaches to address each patient’s medical history and underlying health issues. We do not prescribe miracle pills that claim to help you lose weight overnight. Our weight loss advice is evidence-based and our solutions are rooted in scientific wellness. Deciding on the right medication will depend on a number of factors. We take your health history and genetics into account before prescribing the right medication and creating a weight loss plan.
Canadian Obesity Network
As a participant in the Canadian Obesity Network, all of our medicines, supplements and other prescriptions are approved by Health Canada. They are all prescribed under the direction of a physician, not a trainer or any other profession that does not require a medical license. In most cases, we recommend that you eat smaller meals more often throughout the day and then use the medication as support. These medications may include injections that improve blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes, prescriptions that reduce calories and more.*
