Orlistat helps your body to avoid absorbing fat from the food you intake. Reducing this fat intake, helps you to lose weight more easily. If you have tried to lose weight through dieting and exercise and it hasn’t worked with the desired results, then Orlistat may be the solution for you to achieve your ideal weight.
The active ingredient Orlistat works by attaching itself to your body’s natural enzymes that (lipases) which break down fat. By attaching to these lipases, Orlistat blocks the enzyme from performing its normal function of breaking down fat for absorption. Since the fat is not broken down, it leaves as a waste product.
What is great about Orlistat, is that it can effectively block at least one-third of the fat intake from your food. It comes with a 3 months weight loss target. If you lose 5% of your weight within the first 3 months, then you are eligible to continue taking Orlistat. The maximum prescribing period is 3 years. If your weight increases within a period of 3 months, Orlistat should be discontinued. Patients can have a break for 6 months before persevering again with Orlistat.
Suitable for patients with a BMI over 30 or for diabetic patients with a BMI over 28.
