Counterweight is a complete service which requires minimal planning and changes to existing pathways. We've seen many of our patients achieve the weight loss required to meet the criteria and targets for life changing procedures. I would recommend this programme to other NHS practitioners who have patients who require fast, rapid weight loss for things such as surgery and fertility.
My heart risk has gone from 86, I think, to 66 and my cholesterol is down to 5.5! The nurses said I needed to get hold of the GP so I had a telephone appointment yesterday and my thyroxine has come down from 125 to 100, get in there! So everything, health wise…medically is just so much better.
I was surprised and delighted that I was able to lose the 7% that we'd originally set as a target – and within a much quicker time frame than I had even thought possible.
