My Weight Solution is a prescription-only weight management solution for patients who are concerned about their health.
Losing weight can be difficult even if you are determined and have tried either dieting or exercise
or both without achieving a healthier weight.
My Weight Solution is suitable for almost anyone and has best results if you have a BMI of 30+.
It is not suitable for pregnant women, those breastfeeding, and Diabetics who are on Insulin.
Dr Peter Petrie will be with you on your weight loss journey to
Inform, Monitor, and encourage you as you shed the pounds to reach a healthier build.
My Weight Solution is a prescription medication in the form of a weekly injection called Ozempic which works by reducing the feelings of hunger and increasing the feeling of fullness and satiety, leading to increased food intake.
It is prescribed 'Off-label' for weight loss and this is discussed at your initial appointment.
MODULE 1 £500
The initial programme is for 4 weeks and consists of a 30 minute appointment with Dr Peter Petrie where he will discuss the medication, assess the patients health and weight and if appropriate, decide on a medication treatment plan. A blood test will be taken at this appointment to rule out any potential underlying health issues that would make the medication unsuitable.
The results of the test will be shared with the patient. Providing the blood results are normal the treatment will be prescribed which is delivered to your home address. After 3 weeks on the medication there will be a 15 minute phone call with Dr Petrie to check how the treatment is going and if all is well then a further prescription for an increased dose prescribed
MODULE 2 £350
The increased dose of Ozempic will then be prescribed to be taken for a further 12 weeks to achieve the desired weight-loss. At any time during this treatment you can contact the practice for advice if needed.
After the end of Module 2, Dr Petrie will contact the patient to see how well the treatment has gone.
The medication is prescribed and the dosage explained to you.
It is a self-administered daily injection (similar in style to Diabetic injections) and the technique of
‘how to do it’ will be explained in detail to you.
We want to help you with your weight-loss journey and not just prescribe a treatment and let you figure it out yourself!
As part of the treatment, Dr Petrie will see you for follow-up appointments as required which will be arranged at the initial appointment and then ongoing appointments as you continue with the treatment.
My Weight Solution is a proven method of weight loss that works for most people.
If after the 12-week programme you have not lost more than 5% of your body mass, then further injections will not, unfortunately, stimulate more weight loss. We can’t guarantee that everyone will lose weight on My Weight Solution but if you also adjust your lifestyle in terms of nutrition and exercise, it’s very likely you will.
The desired weight loss is usually over a 12 week period but for some patients, this may be longer as the medication levels are adjusted as the weeks pass based on the patients' feedback. In this time we include the following:
Initial 30 minute appointment with Dr Petrie
