It is important for personal and health reasons to be the right weight.
Breakspear Medical wishes to help you get down to your ideal weight. Our Weight Loss Programme involves many steps in addition to the first consultation with a qualified physician.
We understand that trying to lose weight is not easy and we will try to help you in every way we can.
We offer a weight loss programme with medical supervision and advice, state-of-the-art tools to aid in metabolism-boosting, and a support system of nutritional experts.
Our Pathology department offers an assortment of medical laboratory tests to show clearly if you are at risk or approaching a critical stage in the development of:
- heart disease
- high cholesterol
- high blood pressure
- vitamin and mineral deficiencies
- respiratory illness
- and many other illnesses associated with obesity
The initial consultation with a specialist physician will comprise a full medical examination, dietary review and routine investigations (such as an urine analysis and blood sugar test).
Weight loss plans are specially prescribed to meet your clinical requirements, so other recommendations may be made, including a consultation with one of our Nutritional Therapists.
Often a Haematology & Biochemistry Profile is recommended to provide information about your body’s current state of health. We always explain treatment plans in detail and discuss all treatment costs with patients before any liabilities are incurred. Sometimes prescribed treatment to curb appetite is recommended. If this is the case, it will be necessary for you to return every 14 days to renew your prescription, or as recommended by our specialists. During these routine visits, your observations will be taken by one of our nurses, free of charge.
Courses of IRATHERM® heat therapy to increase metabolic rate have proven very effective. The most commonly prescribed IRATHERM® programme is 2 treatment sessions per week for 3 weeks.
