Nowadays, there are several safe and effective medical treatment for overweight and obesity such as medication, injection, gastric balloon insertion, and gastric bypass surgery. These mentioned treatments need to be performed and instructed by the specialist closely. Currently, the non – surgical treatment like Liraglutide injection which was approved for medical use by the US FDA is very popular among people who want to lose weight.

A tube of Liraglutide injection contains active Liraglutide. It is a 97% hormone-like substance which is Glucagon-like peptide -1 (GLP-1 receptor agonist). Glucagon-like peptide -1 is a hormone in the digestive system that has an ability to reduce the blood sugar, that is why people who have received Liraglutide feel full for hours, as well as reduce the stomach movement in order to keep the food in the stomach longer. 

How to use the weight control pen at home

  • Inject the Liraglutide to  yourself before or after a meal once daily
  • Inject the Liraglutide on your thigh, belly, or shoulder

Note: The quantity of the Liraglutide that you need to receive per day needs to be instructed by the specialist.

According to studies, people who have received Liraglutide injection (3.0ml./Day) for 12 weeks or 3 months can lose at least 5% of their weight. Liraglutide injection is recommended to be used by people who are overweight (over BMI standard) and want to lose weight, people who like eating snacks, desserts, and oily foods, as well as people who are at risk of diabetes. 

If you are interested in Liraglutide injection, you should consult with the specialist in order to undergo the health checkup and history taking by the specialist before starting the treatment session. For your safety and health, the specialist will follow-up and evaluate your symptoms closely.
