Drug treatment


Anti-obesity medications work by


  • Reducing appetite, by replicating the hormone that makes you feel full after a meal, or

  • Reducing fat absorption from the gastrointestinal tract. 


Drug treatments can help reduce obesity-related health risks such as high blood pressure and diabetes.


They should not be used, however, as a substitute for lifestyle changes such as eating a more healthy diet or increasing the amount of physical exercise.

Drug treatments can be considered if your BMI is:


≥30 kg/m2 or


 ≥25 kg/m2 (with obesity-related complications, including breathing problems during sleep (OSA).
