Saxenda is a new treatment option in the form of injection for people who are struggling to lose weight.

If you combine it with a low-calorie diet and exercise, Saxenda may help you to lose weight and keep it off. Saxenda is aimed at people who are clinically obese – that’s a BMI of 30 and above. However, it can also be prescribed for people who have a medical condition that affects their weight who also have a BMI of 27 and above. This includes people with diabetes.

It’s a prescription-only medication meaning you need approval from a qualified healthcare professional before being able to use it. Saxenda is a self-administered injectable and comes as a pre-loaded injection pen.

How does Saxenda pen work?

Saxenda contains an ingredient that mimics a hormone that naturally occurs in your body. GLP-1 is the name of the hormone and it helps regulate appetite. As a result, Saxenda may help you feel less hungry, helping you eat less and lose weight in the process.

Because it works with your body, Saxenda allows you to adopt healthier lifestyle choices including a balanced diet and an active day. Saxenda assists you in achieving and maintaining your weight loss goals by establishing these new healthy habits.

Saxenda isn’t a quick fix, a wonder drug or some rigid regime. Instead, Saxenda could be the support you need to kick-start a new healthier lifestyle.

How soon can one expect Saxenda results?

You will probably see weight loss within weeks of starting your healthier lifestyle alongside the Saxenda weight loss medication.

In a 56-week study conducted by the company that makes of Saxenda, most participants saw weight-loss results:

  • 3 in 5 participants lost at least 5% of their starting body weight
  • 1 in 3 participants lost 10% or more of their starting body weight
  • 8 out of 10 participants maintained their weight loss

It’s important to remember that weight-loss is a personal journey. Everyone is different and so weight loss results could be different for different individuals.
