Are you struggling to lose weight with traditional methods like diet and exercise? Medications like Ozempic and Saxenda can help with weight loss. Here at Bodyline Clinic, we can compare Ozempic and Saxenda to help you decide which medication may be right for you.
What are Ozempic and Saxenda?
Ozempic and Saxenda are medications for weight loss but they work in different ways.
Ozempic is an injectable medication used originally to treat type 2 diabetes and more recently an effective weight loss treatment. It is part of the semaglutide family of medicaitons. It mimics the effects of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in the body. GLP-1 regulates blood sugar levels and reduces appetite. It is injected once a week and the effects last throughout. It is attained when prescribed safely by a specialist CQC registered clinician within Bodyline’s medical weight loss programmes.
Saxenda, on the other hand, is an injectable medication holding Liraglutide, specifically designed for weight loss. It also mimics GLP-1 to regulate blood sugar levels and reduce appetite but is injected once daily. It can only be prescribed safely by a specialist CQC registered clinic, either via video or in-clinic consultation alongside a Bodyline Weight Loss plan. Saxenda Bodyline SlimPen allows you to lose weight without feeling hungry and is generally well tolerated by patients with very few side effects.
How do they compare in terms of weight loss?
Both medications are very effective for sustainable weight loss. In clinical trials, people taking the ‘gamechanging’ Ozempic lost an average of 15.3kg which is almost 3 stone!
People taking Saxenda, on the other hand, lost an average of 10kg.
Which one is right for you?
Choosing the right medication will depend on your overall health, weight loss goals, and risks. Your weight loss clinic nurse can help weigh the pros and cons of each medication and determine which one is the best fit for you. Saxenda may be a better option if you have a lot of weight to lose over a longer period of time. Ozempic may be a better option if you are looking to lose weight safely and quickly. Both medications should be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise regimen for the best results.
Ozempic and Saxenda are effective medications for weight loss, but they have some differences in how they work, their effectiveness, and their side effects. For more information about weight loss, Ozempic and Saxenda, contact us today 0800 995 6036 or filling in our online contact form.
