Weight Loss - Saxenda

What is Saxenda?

Saxenda is a prescription only, once daily injection that is used to promote weight loss in patients who are either obese or who are overweight (with a Body Mass Index of 28 or more) and have additional health risk factors. It contains the active ingredient liraglutide, which was originally developed to treat diabetes. Saxenda has been available as a licensed medicine for weight loss since 2014.

Saxenda works in the same way as natural substance found in the body called GLP-1, which helps to regulate blood sugar after eating. This decreases the production of glucagon, a hormone that opposes insulin and slows down the emptying of the stomach. This in turn lowers hunger and increases feelings of fullness.
