Elina Medical Weight Loss Clinic is our dedicated weight management service. We specialise in using current best evidence to help patients not only lose weight but to manage their weight with confidence for the rest of their lives.
Weight loss medications available overseas are beginning to trickle into Australia.
Weight loss medications need to be considered with a diet and exercise program for patients with a BMI over 30 or a BMI of over 27 with associated weight related disease such as diabetes or hypertension.
With all medications it is important to discuss their safety profile, indications for use and to combine them with therapies to achieve long term weight loss rather than short term weight loss with harmful cycling rebound weight gain.
Information about the medications currently available for managing weight can be found here
We do a thorough medical assessment, detailed counselling on the risks and appropriate use of medications. We can prescribe them and monitor you for adverse reactions with your safety as our highest priority.
