Impacts of obesity

The impacts of being obese or overweight can affect every part of your life, from physical and mental health to healthcare, education, employment and overall quality of life.

With effective weight management treatments available, it’s time to focus on what matters to you.

Manage weight loss with fast and convenient access to prescription weight loss injections and medications.

Quality of Life & Healthcare

People with obesity often report a lower quality of life, which can be attributed to difficulties with mobility, negative social experiences, and self-consciousness. Society’s unfair stigma and discrimination can exacerbate these issues and further demoralise people already experiencing health and lifestyle challenges.

People with obesity can be impacted by discrimination and stigma from healthcare providers. Studies have shown that doctors, nurses, and medical students can exhibit such behaviour, which can negatively impact the quality of care received by people with obesity. Embarrassment about being weighed and using medical equipment that may not accommodate larger body sizes can also act as barriers to accessing healthcare.

Physical Health

Obesity is linked with an increased risk of several health conditions, including 17 types of cancers (such as bowel, breast, pancreatic, and leukaemia), stroke, dementia, type-2 diabetes, chronic kidney disease, back pain, osteoarthritis, heart disease, cataracts, gallbladder disease, and sleep apnoea.

Living with these conditions and diseases can significantly impact the enjoyment of life and even shorten lifespan.

Mental Health

People living with obesity are often stigmatised and discriminated against in many aspects, including education, personal relationships, healthcare, and work. This prejudice can have a negative impact on self-image and sense of self-worth, potentially leading to loneliness and decreased self-esteem and contributing to depression and anxiety.

Research has shown that there is a higher likelihood of developing depression among those with obesity and vice versa.

Diet and Sleep Disorders

Employment and Education

Research shows that individuals with obesity during adolescence are more likely to drop out of school and not pursue higher education, limiting their career opportunities. Further to this, people with obesity face a stigma about being lazy, unsuccessful and lacking self-discipline, which often leads to lower employment rates and wages.

It’s time to look after your health

Managing the potential impacts of overweight and obesity on a daily basis can be challenging.

At hub.health, our medical team will work with you to treat obesity and overweight with clinically proven weight loss meds, guiding you towards a healthier version of yourself.

Frequently asked questions

The weight loss injections we prescribe contain one active ingredient. When injected, this active ingredient mimics the effects of a specific hormone in the body that helps to reduce appetite, increase feelings of fullness, and slow stomach emptying, leading to a reduced calorie intake that ultimately promotes weight loss.

It’s important to note that these medications are prescription-only and should only be taken under the guidance of a healthcare professional in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise program.

The results of weight loss injection treatments can vary depending on the specific medication, individual factors such as age, gender, and medical history, and personal adherence to a healthy lifestyle. However, some general potential benefits that may be associated with these weight loss treatments include:

  • Physical health improvements to important health markers, such as blood pressure, blood sugar levels, cholesterol levels, sleep quality, and joint pain, and a reduced risk of developing obesity-related diseases, such as heart disease, stroke, and type-2 diabetes.
  • Mental health improvements, such as improved self-esteem, mood, and confidence, and reduced symptom severity of depression and anxiety.
  • Improved quality of life, including increased energy levels, better mobility, and the ability to engage in activities that may have seemed off-limits due to excess weight.
  • Weight reduction has been shown in several studies. However, the amount of weight loss can vary depending on the duration of treatment, and personal adherence to a healthy lifestyle.

It’s important to note that weight loss meds are not a magic solution. They must be used in combination with a healthy diet and regular exercise for the best results.

Once you’ve approved and paid for your medication, our pharmacist will organise fast and discreet delivery. You should receive your medication within 1-3 days, depending on your delivery location.

If you are not home when your medication is delivered, Australia Post will leave it in a safe place, if there is one. If they can’t find anywhere safe to leave it, it will be left at the closest collection point.

hub.health offers cold chain delivery anywhere in Australia. This means your medication will remain cold during transit and be delivered to your door in cold packaging.
