Obesity is one of the most serious health concerns in the world today. According to recent studies, nearly a quarter of the population in the EU are obese and around 32% of men and 42% of women are classified as overweight and at risk of becoming obese. Obesity is a well known cause of numerous life threatening health conditions and should therefore be treated as soon as possible.
Dealing with a condition like obesity can be challenging, however, there are prescription treatments available to help make your weight loss regime more effective. One of the most well known prescription obesity treatments is known as Xenical and can be ordered online from euroClinix after a brief online consultation.
What are the causes?
A person can be considered obese if they have a BMI (body mass index) of 30 or more. The two main reasons obesity is becoming more common is a lack of activity and a high calorie diet. We spend more of our time sitting down when we work or travel than ever before. This desk-bound existence prevents many of us from burning off all the calories we consume daily and many people struggle to find the time to exercise to compensate for this lack of activity. Our body then has no other choice but to convert these calories into fat and store it.
Apart from a sedentary lifestyle, other causes of obesity can be genetic. These ‘obesity-genes’ can influence how we perceive taste and smell, our level of appetite, how fast we feel full, and our metabolism's speed.You can check your Body Mass Index (BMI) here.
What health problems can obesity cause?
Obesity doesn’t just influence our emotional well-being and confidence, but can also cause various health problems. These problems can be minor to start off with, but they can develop into more serious conditions, which can ultimately be fatal. Obesity related diseases are one of the main causes of premature death in people under 75. This is why it is very important to find an obesity treatment suited to your condition as soon as possible. Treating the disease immediately can reduce your risk of developing the following conditions:
- Type 2 diabetes
- High cholesterol
- High blood pressure
- Gall stones
- Bladder problems
- Difficulty breathing

What obesity treatments are available?
The impact of a healthy diet and good exercise routine should never be underestimated. It is one of the first things you need to focus on if you are looking to lose weight, and keep it off over the long term. Although exercise and a healthy diet will undoubtedly be good for you, it is advisable to speak to your doctor before starting an exercise routine, as you tend to be more at risk of injuring yourself if you are already obese or overweight. It is very important that any changes in your diet or activity level should be gradual so that it will eventually become part of your daily routine.
Losing weight with only dieting and exercise can seem like an impossible challenge. That is why there are certain obesity treatments that can help to boost the effectiveness of your weight loss efforts.
What prescription treatments are there for obesity?
Most obesity treatments work by suppressing your appetite. They act on receptors in the brain, to produce impulses that make you feel more satisfied after consuming less food. Because you are less inclined to eat, it will be much easier for you lose weight while dieting and exercising. Two appetite suppressant medications, Acomplia and Reductil, were both previously available for obesity treatment, however, both are currently suspended from sale due to health concerns and are pending further review.
There are a new generation of appetite suppressant medications which are currently being trialled in America by the Food and Drugs Administration (FDA). Out of the medications being tested, Contrave has proved to be the most promising. Contrave combines two existing medications, naltrexone and bupropion. Bupropion suppresses the appetite and increase the body’s metabolism, while naltrexone affects how the body processes the taste of sweet foods, so they are less desirable. Two other medications, Qnexa and Lorcaserin have also been tested, but they did not pass phase three of the FDA’s test procedure.
What is Xenical?
Xenical is a prescription obesity treatment that contains the active ingredient orlistat. Xenical works by binding to lipases in your stomach. Lipases are enzymes that break down fat so that it can get absorbed into your system and stored. Xenical can stop up to a third of the fat in your diet from being absorbed. The fat that doesn’t get broken down and absorbed by your system just gets expelled naturally through your bowel movements.
