What Is The National Medical Weight Loss Programme?

The National Medical Weight Loss Programme (NMWLP) uses an FDA-approved medication, licensed for weight management, which is licensed for weight management. The drug has passed numerous clinical trials for safety and is the only approved injectable prescription medicine available in the UK for weight management. 

 

With our weight loss programme, adding the medication to a sensible meal and exercise plan helps you lose weight and keep it off. As well as assisting patients in losing weight, the prescription drug has been shown in clinical studies to improve many cardiovascular co-morbidities, such as pre-diabetes, hypertension, high lipid levels and obstructive sleep apnoea.
