Saxenda Weight loss Injection Pens – Liraglutide Injection 6mg/ml

If you’re looking for a weight loss solution that really works, Saxenda Weight loss Injection Pens are your answer. Using the active ingredient liraglutide, Saxenda is similar to the natural hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) which is released after eating. This satiety-signaling hormone lets your brain know that you’re full and satisfaction, which helps prevent overeating and leads to weight loss. Clinical trials have shown that people who used Saxenda lost an average of 5% of their body weight, while those who didn’t use the medication only lost 2%. So if you’re ready to finally make a change and lose weight, Saxenda is the answer. Speak to your doctor about Saxenda today.

What Saxenda is used for?

Saxenda is used for weight loss in addition to diet and exercise in adults aged 18 and above who have
• a BMI of 30 kg/m² or greater (obesity) or
• a BMI of 27 kg/m² and less than 30 kg/m² (overweight) and weight-related health problems (such as diabetes, high blood pressure, abnormal levels of fats in the blood or breathing problems during sleep called ‘obstructive sleep apnoea’).
BMI (Body Mass Index) is a measure of your weight in relation to your height.

Saxenda can be used as an adjunct to healthy nutrition and increased physical activity for weight management in adolescents from the age of 12 years and above who have:
• obesity (diagnosed by your doctor)
• body weight above 60 kg

Managing a long-term disease like obesity requires more than willpower alone. Adding Saxenda to a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity may help you lose weight and keep it off.
