Weight Management Clinic In Leeds

Further to popular demand, The Leeds Clinic are now offering weight management appointments for those that require support to help achieve their weight loss goals. Our in-house nurse Emma Gibson works closely with you to help establish any underlying issues/concerns and formulate a bespoke plan offering ongoing support to help achieve those goals.

OUR TREATMENT CHOICE

At the clinic we use Wegovy injections as our chosen treatment option.

What is the difference between Wegovy and Ozempic?

Wegovy and Ozempic are both classed as brand names for semaglutide. In 2017, Ozempic was approved for medical use for the treatment of diabetes. In 2021, Wegovy was approved for use in weight management.

The biggest difference is that Ozempic is specifically prescribed for type 2 diabetes and Wegovy is formulated for weight loss and obesity. Both have been proven to work well in combination with diet and exercise. The dosage in Wegovy is also slightly higher but like Ozempic are taken once weekly. Both medications it is advised to start on lower doses and build up gradually over the course of several months.

We will be predominantly offering Wegovy due to Ozempic being limited to those with type 2 diabetes along with a national shortage. However as mentioned, Wegovy works in a very similar way and offers similar results.
