Effective Weight Loss in Singapore (2024)

Begin Your Weight Loss Journey With a Doctor

Embarking on a weight loss journey can be challenging, especially after previous unsuccessful attempts. We recognize these difficulties and provide medically supervised treatments to help you. While medications can offer support, sustainable results ultimately depend on lifestyle changes. Together, they can help improve your physical appearance and significantly benefit your health by reducing risks of diseases such as diabetes, heart disease, and joint problems.

How Can Obesity Affect You?

In Singapore, obesity is a significant health concern. HealthHub indicates that around 40% of Singaporeans are overweight.

40% of Singapore's population is overweight.

Obesity can lead to several serious health issues, and understanding these can encourage you to manage your weight better. Here’s how being overweight can affect your health:

  • Heart Issues: Extra weight can increase your risk of heart problems like high blood pressure and heart attacks.
  • Diabetes: Obesity can make your body less sensitive to insulin, which often leads to type 2 diabetes.
  • Joint Pain: Carrying extra weight can strain your joints, especially your knees, causing pain and wear.
  • Breathing Problems: Being overweight can affect your lungs, making it hard to breathe, and can worsen sleep apnea.
  • Mood and Self-esteem: Weight issues can also affect your mental well-being, leading to depression or feelings of low self-worth.

Managing your weight can help mitigate these risks and lead to a healthier life.

Recognizing When To Consult a Doctor for Weight Loss

If your efforts at diet and exercise are not yielding results, or if you have health conditions that complicate obesity, it's crucial to seek medical advice. Here are some key reasons to consult a doctor:

  • Lack of Results: If diet and exercise aren't helping you lose weight, a doctor can help identify any underlying issues.
  • Health Complications: Conditions like diabetes or heart disease can make weight loss more complex and require medical supervision.
  • Specialised Treatments: A doctor may recommend treatments like medication or hormone therapy that are tailored to your needs.
  • Safe and Effective Planning: Consulting a doctor ensures your weight loss plan is both safe and optimised for your health.

Doctor-Prescribed Weight Loss Treatments

Each weight loss journey is unique, and we offer a range of doctor-prescribed treatments tailored to meet individual needs and goals. These may include appetite suppressants that help reduce hunger and weight loss injections such as GLP-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RA) that assist in regulating appetite.

Understanding Appetite Suppressants

Appetite suppressants are medications designed to make you feel fuller sooner and for longer periods, effectively helping you reduce your overall caloric intake. These medications function by altering the chemical signals that control hunger and satiety in the brain.

The Role of Weight Loss Injections

Weight loss injections typically involve hormones that mimic natural substances in the body to help regulate appetite and metabolism. These injections can include GLP-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1RA), which lead to significant weight loss by enhancing your body's ability to feel full and satisfied with less food, and by improving metabolic processes.

How Enzyme Blockers Aid in Weight Loss

Enzyme blockers work by inhibiting the enzymes responsible for breaking down fats in your diet. This means less fat is absorbed, and more is eliminated through natural processes, reducing the number of calories absorbed from meals.
