Weight Loss Injections
Weight Loss Injections
Now available after a consultation with a trained nurse or GP.
It is the only approved injectable prescription medicine available in the UK for weight loss.
Saxenda (liraglutide 6mg/ml) is a self-injectable weight loss treatment. It contains the active ingredient liraglutide which is very similar to a naturally occurring hormone in your body called GLP-1.
After a meal GLP-1 is naturally released from your intestines to help regulate your blood sugar levels and reduce the amount of glucagon in your body. Glucagon is a naturally occurring hormone which works by inhibiting the action of insulin. As a result, it makes you feel less hungry, slows down the emptying of your stomach and makes you feel ‘fuller’ for longer.
Liraglutide is a once-daily injection that you administer to yourself.
Those who took liraglutide lost an average of 18 and a half pounds over 56 weeks – it should be combined with a healthy eating and exercise plan.
“I have had persistent neck and shoulder discomfort for some time. Regular visits to my local GP did not help. I was recommended to see Dr Sheila O’Neil who gave me a check-up and recommended that I see her physiotherapist colleague, Vicky Graham. I have had three sessions of physiotherapy and have regained full mobility in my neck and shoulders and feel a great deal better. I am very grateful to Dr Sheila and expect, with my husband, to sign up with her as regular patients.”Mrs Johnston
I would like to thank Dr O’Neill very much for her time today: I get the impression that she is a very caring professional, knowledgeable and reassuring, and that she makes explaining conditions crystal clear, which is exactly what is needed for an anxious patient like myself. The staff that I met were all extremely welcoming, well-groomed and helpful too. Add to this the very relaxing and beautifully scented ambience and it was really a truly positive and pleasant visit. Thank you.Linnea Blair
“Dr. Sheila O’Neill and her team quite literally saved my life. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Diagnosis of a serious condition that had been misdiagnosed by three hospitals took less than 2 weeks, including an MRI. Setting aside the professionalism, they are also just extremely nice people. Imagine a GP that truly cares and will be calling the patient after hours to see how they are getting on – that is what I got from Dr. Sheila O’Neill. There are no superlatives that adequately describe the service. Great. Fantastic. Superb.”GMK Group

On a monthly basis I can typically travel from North / Central / South America to Asia and various locations throughout Europe. I found it very difficult to locate a medical facility that understood my situation. After much research I found the perfect place at Glasgow Medical RoomsBrian Running
Dr. Shelia was outstanding in understanding my situation. Outwith her medical expertise, she clearly understood the challenges I faced with my demanding travel schedule and the need to have a medical facility that was flexible to my needs.
In addition, the entire team that works at Glasgow Medical Rooms are sincere, kind, professional and their communication is second to none.
A special mention to the Practice Manager, Donna McMillan who leads by example, resulting what appears to be a flawless Practice.
