Weight management is a complex issue for many people around the UK.
Around 75% of adults in the UK are above a healthy weight and many of these are considered obese. A weight loss consultant helps find the right solution to your weight problem.
Dr Rehan Haidry offers weight loss consultations for patients from many different backgrounds looking for the right solution for their situation.
Treatments for Weight Loss and Obesity
Obesity can be treated in several ways.
Some people can reach a normal weight through a healthy lifestyle and diet and exercise. Others may choose to limit additional contributory factors such as smoking and alcohol consumption. The basic tips for weight loss management include:
- A balanced and calorie-controlled diet provided or supported by a nutritionist, GP or weight loss specialist
- Attending a weight loss group
- Adding exercise into your routine in a management and enjoyable way
Some patients also require psychological support or counselling which a GP can arrange. Sometimes lifestyle changes are not enough, and alternative treatments are available. There are some medications offered for weight loss including Orlistat which minimises the fat absorbed in the digestion process.
Weight loss surgery has become more common and also more effective. Minimally invasive endoscopic procedures reduce the risk of major surgery and can have similar results. Dr Haidry offers a number of endoscopic weight management procedures as a weight loss consultant London.
Weight Loss Procedures
Endoscopic Weight Loss Procedures
Dr Rehan Haidry was one of the first endoscopists in the UK to carry out Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG) and also offers the Intragastric Balloon (IGB) treatment.
Intragastric Balloon (IGB)
An IGB is a soft silicon balloon-like device is positioned in the stomach using an endoscope. It is passed into the stomach through the mouth and filled once in place with around 500ml of liquid. The balloon can remain in the stomach for up to 12 months depending on the device. The IGB is then removed via another endoscopic procedure. It is a very safe and effective minimally invasive procedure for weight loss. Patients first experience rapid weight loss and this then levels at and can be maintained with a healthy diet and exercise.
Endoscopic Sleeve Gastroplasty (ESG)
Endoscopic sleeve gastroplasty (ESG) works by reducing the size of your stomach using an endoscopic device which can suture, removing the need for surgery. The ESG procedure gives the stomach a tubular shape and minimises the amount patients can eat before they become full. The procedure takes around 90 minutes and patients are usually able to go home the same day. Patients should feel fuller quicker when they eat and experience rapid weight loss, followed by steady maintenance.
