Many studies have shown that weight loss leads to lower blood pressure, reduced cholesterol levels, increased mobility and exercise capacity, improvements in blood sugar and insulin levels and a lower risk of cancer. For women of child-bearing age, weight loss leads to increased fertility and a much lower risk of miscarriage and obstetric complications.
The Weight to Go® Programme has been shown to be an extremely effective and safe method of weight loss for a wide range of individuals. There are, however, certain people for whom the Weight to Go programme will need to be followed with more caution or for whom it may not be suitable at all. For this reason we would ask you to take note of the following guidelines:
- If you have diabetes, the programme will result in much better control of your diabetes, so it is important for you to monitor your blood sugar levels closely. You will probably require lower dosages of insulin and/or drugs.
- Weight loss will lead to lower blood pressure levels and, once again, you may need to have your blood pressure medication reduced. You should seek the advice of your GP as your weight loss progresses.
- If you are taking medication (e.g. warfarin) to thin the blood because of heart problems or blood clots, you may need to have the dosage adjusted. Accordingly you should inform the anticoagulant clinic or your GP about your weight loss programme.
- Do not follow the Weight to Go programme if you are pregnant or breast feeding.
- Do not follow the Weight to Go programme if you are currently undergoing treatment for cancer.
- It is not necessary to drink large amounts of fluid. Drinking large quantities within a short period of time may be harmful to your health.
- If you have any medical questions relating to your suitability to the Weight to Go programme please call us on 0800 468 1280 and we will be able to advise you.
