SAXENDA® – WEIGHT LOSS TREATMENT SINGAPORE
Saxenda® contains liraglutide
It is a prescription injectable medicine designed to help overweight individuals lose weight effectively and maintain the weight after. Liraglutide is similar to a natural hormone in your body known as incretin. It works by activating specific areas of your brain that regulate your appetite. Liraglutide makes you feel less hungry, which then leads to reduced calorie intake and gradual weight loss.
What is the use of Saxenda?
Saxenda®, when used with appropriate lifestyle changes such as increased physical activity and a reduced calorie meal plan, can help overweight adults with weight-related medical problems to lose weight and keep the weight off. Losing weight and keeping it off can reduce obesity related health complications such as heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure and diabetes.
You may have lost weight once or many times in the past. But keeping the weight off proved to be difficult. Learn how Saxenda® helped some adults lose weight and keep it off below.
