I’d like to ask about injection for weight loss. How much is it and how many injections do I have to take?
Answer: Dr. Sa-nga Tawalwiwattanakul (physician)
Excess weight or obesity, in medical terms, means that there is excess body mass index which leads to diseases such as diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, joint problems or some types of cancer, for instance. To maintain body weight in medical terms is to prevent such diseases, with no aesthetic purposes. The accurate and effective treatment focuses on behavioral change on food consumption and exercise. If the behavioral change is not effective, medication might be another option. However, using medication must be done very carefully because there might be some side effects and the result is not sustainable if the behavior remains the same. I do not recommend injection for weight loss.
