Semaglutide for Medical Weight Loss
Semaglutide is a safe, doctor-prescribed GLP-1 medication that’s prescribed under the brand names Wegovy®, Ozempic®, and Rybelsus®. If you're eligible for our weight loss programs, you will be considered for all GLP-1s that are clinically appropriate and in stock.
The program starts with an initial medication consultation to examine your medical history, talk about your weight reduction objectives, and assess if Semaglutide is the right therapy for you. If permitted, you will have continuous medication assistance from your doctor.
How Does Semaglutide Work?
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) injected subcutaneously on a weekly basis. GLP-1 is a hormone produced in the small intestine that stimulates insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon secretion, thereby lowering blood sugar.
Studies show that semaglutide reduces appetite, improves control of eating, and reduces food cravings in addition to improving glycemic control. It is indicated for people who are obese and who have failed to lose enough weight with diet and exercise alone — not for people who want to lose just a few pounds to create additional locks.
What Is Semaglutide Used For?
Semaglutide is a medication that has emerged as a potentially effective option for weight loss in individuals who meet specific criteria. This is because it reduces appetite, slows down the emptying of the stomach, and increases feelings of fullness.
It has shown promising results in clinical trials and offers a novel approach to weight management by influencing appetite and metabolism. However, it should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional, and the benefits and risks should be carefully evaluated on an individual basis.
Semaglutide is administered once a week by injection subcutaneously, which makes it more convenient than other diabetes medications that need to be taken several times a day. Additionally, a holistic approach to weight management, including diet and exercise, should be considered alongside medication when seeking sustainable weight loss.
How Much Weight Will I Lose On Semaglutide?
Participants in one of the most effective studies on Semaglutide had a starting average body weight of 231 pounds and a BMI of 38. During the 68-week experiment, those who got Semaglutide lost an average of 15% of their starting weight, or roughly 33 pounds.
Having said that, it is essential to keep in mind that the experience of each individual patient will be unique and that they may reach various stages of weight reduction at varying times.
