Hi just needed to say

This drug has really helped my heart failure and weight loss and general well-being .

I have followed a good eating plan and exercise plan for years. My wife and I have tried to diet for years without achieving much.

My heart failure symptoms have deminished and I have lost about 30 lb in three months after starting this medication with no side effects.

This drug should be considered for weigh loss it would save the NHS millions.

Ps I only started looking up this drug to see If I could get it for my wife to help her with lose weight and therefore improve her other health issues many of which are caused by over weight

Please NHS / NICE have a look at it

Hope someone that can make a difference reads this

Phil

I'm really pleased to hear you've found something that works for you, Philblue, but this is just a peer to peer support group for weight loss. We have no affiliation with the NHS or NICE.

Wishing you all the best with spreading the news and your continued improvement in health.

Hi thanks

Yes but ………I hope members of this group ask and bring this drug benefits to the attention of there GP with regard to weight loss and improved health

In the hope of further medical trials and wider use where appropriate

If it is associated with heart problems then it won’t be for all of us . Well done for addressing your weight issues . I am cautious of any medication for anything. We all have our own methods and mine is simply 3 meals a day , avoiding snacks and processed foods . If I stick to this then my general health improvement is noticeable thus my motivation to exercise is positive too . I wouldn’t take anything without professional guidance but great if you feel better and your weight is down . What helps you in the way of day to day eating please ?

yes I agree ……..but NICE only authorised it to be prescribed for heart failure earlier this year . The drug has been on the market for many years for the treatment of stage 3 diabetes I just hope that trials are carried out for weight loss .

Hi

dated oct 2013 May be worth looking up this one on the internet

Low-carb diet in a pill - a good idea? - Diet Doctor

Is it right …….? is it wrong ……..? Should it be considered for weight loss ?

It took until this year for NICE to confirm it could be used for heart failure !

I think you'll find that most of us here prefer to address excess weight by finding a better diet, rather than a pill. You and your wife are welcome to join in forum activities such as the daily diary to share your meal plans and pick up ideas.
