Due to changing lifestyles, Singapore’s obesity rate is constantly rising, with about 10% of Singaporeans medically obese, and 30% overweight. Oftentimes, weight loss can be difficult, and weight loss teas or supplements could be more harmful than helpful.
Here at Cambridge Medical Group, we offer medical-grade, FDA-approved prescription weight loss injections that have been proven to help you lose weight and keep it off. Your weight loss journey will also be closely monitored and guided by our doctors.
Weight loss injections are injectable prescription medications that help you lose excess weight. Liraglutide is an FDA-approved 3mg once-daily subcutaneous injection that works by suppressing appetite and delaying gastric emptying.
The injections start working immediately, and you should be able to see results within 2 weeks. You may lose about 2% - 4% of your body weight and will continue to gradually experience a decrease in body fat as you carry on with the treatment.
You will only need to administer one injection every morning. Once you have achieved your desired weight, our doctors will discuss slowly reducing your dosage.
We believe in holistic methods for safe and effective weight loss. Our doctors have put together a programme that will assist you in your weight loss journey, meant to help you lose weight and contour the body.
The treatment programme is highly personalised, and will be recommended by our doctors based on your current body composition, lifestyle and desired results. This could be a combination of weight loss injections and medical-grade machines meant to lift skin or contour the body.
Schedule a consultation with our doctor for a proper analysis and personalised treatment plan.
In a clinical study carried out over 56 weeks, 83% of the participants lost weight. 3 in 5 patients lost over 5% of their body weight, and 1 in every 3 people lost more than 10% of their body weight.
Of course, these injections work best with moderate exercise and a well-balanced, reduced-calorie diet.
Although rare, side effects are mild and temporary, and should improve over time as your body adjusts to the medication. These include nausea, diarrhoea, constipation, vomiting, headaches, stomachaches, heartburn, tiredness and/or low blood pressure.
Rest assured, during your entire weight loss process, your progress will be closely monitored by our doctors to ensure a safe treatment experience. Your dose is usually raised slowly over several weeks to minimise side effects.
Weight loss injections are not recommended for people with heart problems or those aged 75 and above.
It is recommended to get our doctors to do a thorough suitability assessment before starting your weight loss journey. During your consultation, let our doctor know if you have severe problems with your stomach, pancreas, kidneys or liver.
