Weight Loss Treatments and Medmate

If the doctor decides that a specific treatment should be part of your treatment plan, Medmate will work with partner pharmacies that have the treatment you need. The cost will include the treatment and delivery to your home. Your doctor will help you choose the right treatment based on your health.

Medmate doesn’t give out one-time weight loss treatments. Our doctors need to keep an eye on how you’re doing, check for any side effects, and provide ongoing treatment only to patients who are in our long-term care program.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is obesity?

Being overweight or obese means you have extra body weight, and this can increase the chances of getting various long-term health issues and a higher risk of dying early.

If your body mass index is greater than 30, you are classified as being in the obese range.

What are Medmate's weight loss treatments?

We are unable to list this class of treatments by name.

You will have to proceed to a free health practitioner consult stage with Medmate to learn about your options.

Your clinician may advise these treatments as part of your weight loss program.

 

How important is diet for weight loss?

A high protein and nutritious diet is paramount to successful weight management. Your doctor will guide you through calorie tracking and set your daily calorie target. You must achieve a sustainable daily calorie deficit (at least by 500 calories). Medical treatments may assist in acheiving this goal. Referral to a dietitian may also be recommended to formulate a meal plan aligned with your goals. It’s important to retain lean muscle mass and will involve tracking your macro nutrients to ensure you hit your protein targets for each day. We recommend a tracker such as My Fitness Pal to track daily calories and macros.

Calculate your basal metabolic rate and subtract 500 to get your daily target. For example if your basal metabolic rate was 2000 calories, subtract 500 to get a daily target of 1500 calories.

Calculate your basal metabolic rate here.

Are the treatments safe?

Our clinical team will conduct a thorough health assessment and eligibility review. The choice of treatment will be contingent upon their safety in your specific circumstances.

For individuals with a personal or family history that may slightly elevate the risk of extremely rare side effects, your health practitioner will prioritise caution and suggest alternative options in such cases.

How much does Medmate's weight loss program cost?

The commencement cost of this program (including the treatment, home care pack, delivery and regular health practitioner support) ranges from $299 to $499 a month.

Do I need to exercise to lose weight?

Gradually integrating regular physical activity into your routine can contribute to the attainment and maintenance of a calorie deficit and a healthy weight. The objective is to increase daily movement while adhering to your calorie target, eventually creating a calorie deficit conducive to weight reduction. Increasing lean muscle mass over time means your body burns more energy at rest allowing you to maintain a healthy weight and a leaner and more muscular physique. It’s a learning curve, the first step is to kick start the calorie deficit, measure results regularly and learn about how to incorporate both aerobic and resistance activity into your daily life. This is about lifestyle change. In time, your new habits will involve a healthier diet and regular activity that will keep you lean for the long term.
