If you feel that you need or want to lose weight, come along and see Dr. Wilshere whom has an interest in weight management and has helped may patients over the years lose weight.

What can Dr. Wilshere offer?

  • A review of your medical and health history with a focus on your weight issues

  • Ensure there are no undetected medical reasons for your difficulty in weight loss achievement. This can be identified through your medical history and examination. Sometimes we recommend a blood test to check for things like an underactive thyroid gland.

  • Identify lifestyle factors that may be inhibiting weight loss from sleep issues to the bacteria in your gut. Poor sleep is associated with weight, as is having the wrong type of gut bacteria!

  • Provide nutritional and wellbeing advice via a holistic and achievable means

  • Provide clarity over conflicting and incorrect health advice

  • Deliver a personalised plan that is not only achievable short term, but can be maintained for the rest of your life.

  • Be able to continue your care at intervals that fit in with your schedule and provide ongoing support as much or as little as you need.

  • Discuss options of prescribing medication to help you lose the weight you need. Prescriptions are included in the consultation price and can be discussed in detail during your consultation.

Here are some myths to get us started;

1) You need to exercise to lose weight - definitely not!

2) I must avoid saturated fats - No!

3) Skipping meals is bad for my health - research suggests the opposite if done correctly.

4) I must stop all pleasurable food to lose weight - this is not so, and why would we want to erase one of our greatest pleasures!

And many more that will be discussed during your appointment(s).
