Private Weight Loss Injections in Birmingham

Home > Private Weight Loss Injections in Birmingham

Weight loss journeys are deeply personal, and individuals often navigate diverse approaches in their quest for a healthier lifestyle. For many, the emotional aspect of weight loss poses a significant challenge. The societal pressure to conform to certain body standards can trigger feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt. Some may grapple with emotional eating as a coping mechanism, further complicating their efforts. And, of course, all of this is heightened further when you suffer from an underlying health condition.

We understand the challenges people go through with their seemingly endless battle to lose weight. After exhausting all other avenues, and struggling with an overweight or obese BMI, it might be time to consider an alternative treatment plan, weight loss injections.

Our Prescribed Weight Loss Injections

At Midland Health, we prescribe and administer the weight loss medicine, Wegovy a prescription only medicine. This semaglutide-containing medicine was initially developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes; however, it has since been investigated for its additional benefits in promoting weight loss.

Our weight loss injections have been associated with studies as a weight loss aid for people with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher. And, it may also be considered for those with a BMI of 27 or higher if they have weight-related conditions like hypertension or type 2 diabetes.

What are Weight Loss Injections?

Weight loss injections refer to injections that contain medications or substances aimed at promoting weight loss. There are different types of injections from appetite suppressants and metabolism enhancers to fat absorption inhibitors. All of these injections are best used as part of a comprehensive weight management program and combined with a healthy diet and exercise plan.

Is This Treatment Right for Me?

WEGOVY, a prescription only medicine, when used in conjunction with a balanced diet and regular physical activity, is designed to support weight loss and weight management. This treatment is specifically recommended for adults who meet the following criteria:

  • Individuals suffering from obesity with a BMI of 30 kg/m² or greater.
  • Those with a BMI of at least 27 kg/m² but less than 30 kg/m² (overweight), and who are also experiencing weight-related health issues. These health problems may include conditions like diabetes, high blood pressure, abnormal lipid levels, obstructive sleep apnea, or a history of heart attack, stroke, joint problems, or blood vessel issues.

Our team of specialist GPs may consider other health-related medical conditions on an individual basis through thorough discussions.

Please note that we are unable to provide this treatment to individuals under the age of 18.

It's important also to highlight that WEGOVY, a prescription only medicine, is not suitable for patients with a personal or family history of Medullary Thyroid Cancer or those diagnosed with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2).

Battling Weight Loss

The ups and downs of the weight loss process, coupled with societal expectations and internalised perceptions of self-worth, contribute to emotional struggles that can become formidable hurdles. Moreover, individuals might face moments of frustration, disappointment, or even guilt, leading to a complex interplay between mental and physical well-being. Recognising and addressing these emotional challenges is integral to fostering a sustainable and positive approach to weight loss—one that embraces self-compassion, resilience, and a holistic understanding of health.

The Benefits of Weight Loss Injections

Our weight loss injections may be able to offer you several potential benefits. 

  • Effective Weight Loss
  • Appetite Suppression
  • Metabolic Benefits
  • Support Other Lifestyle Changes
  • Potential Improvement in Obesity-Related Conditions

With our treatment packages, your weight loss injections will be prescribed and monitored by a team of GPs, nurses, dieticians and, on some packages, therapists. This ensures that you are receiving appropriate care and supervision, allowing us to alter your dosage or treatment plan whenever necessary.

Please note: it is important to consider potential risks and side effects associated with these weight loss injections.

How Often is the Injection Needed?

During the 6-month treatment plan, you will receive a weekly dose of Wegovy,a prescription only medicine, which is injected subcutaneously into the abdomen (stomach, thigh or upper arm. This medicine is not administered intramuscularly or intravenously. It is also recommended to receive each dose at the same time of day and on the same day each week. 

What Does the Weight Loss Injection Contain?

At Midland Health, we use the prescription medication of Wegovy, a semaglutide-containing injection.

Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. Originally developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, semaglutide works by replicating the action of the natural hormone GLP-1. GLP-1 is released in response to food intake and helps regulate blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin release and reducing the production of glucagon (a hormone that increases blood sugar).

Semaglutide has been shown to lower blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes by increasing insulin secretion and reducing the amount of glucose produced by the liver. In addition to its antidiabetic effects, semaglutide has also been investigated for its potential role in weight management. When administered once a week, this injection has been shown to be effective in promoting weight loss when combined with lifestyle modifications such as diet and exercise.

Are There Side Effects?

Wegovy, a prescription only medicine, carries potential serious side effects, including the risk of thyroid tumours and some cancers. Individuals experiencing symptoms such as neck swelling, hoarseness, difficulty swallowing, or shortness of breath should promptly inform their healthcare provider. You should avoid these weight loss injections if there is a history of MTC in the family or if diagnosed with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2).

Additionally, this treatment is not suitable if there's a history of serious allergic reactions to semaglutide or its components. Before commencing this weight loss plan, you must disclose medical conditions, including pancreas or kidney issues, type 2 diabetes with diabetic retinopathy history, depression, or pregnancy plans. 

Common side effects encompass nausea, diarrhoea, vomiting, constipation, abdominal pain, headache, fatigue, upset stomach, dizziness, bloating, belching, gas, stomach flu, heartburn, runny nose, or sore throat. Individuals experiencing severe or persistent side effects should seek immediate medical attention.

Serious side effects include pancreatitis, gallbladder problems leading to gallstones, increased risk of low blood sugar in type 2 diabetes patients, kidney problems, serious allergic reactions, changes in vision, increased heart rate, and potential depression or suicidal thoughts.
