What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved medication initially developed to manage diabetes by mimicking a hormone that influences blood sugar regulation. Its effectiveness in weight management has recently expanded its use, particularly for treating obesity. Semaglutide has become a potent tool in the battle against obesity, particularly beneficial for individuals with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher or 27 or higher in the presence of weight-related health conditions.

How Semaglutide Helps You Lose Weight

Semaglutide reduces hunger and increases feelings of fullness. It mimics the actions of a hormone naturally produced in the body after eating that plays a crucial role in regulating appetite and calorie intake. Semaglutide enhances the body’s response to satiety, significantly reducing your overall appetite. 

Moreover, semaglutide slows gastric emptying, the process by which food leaves the stomach and enters the small intestine. This slower digestion means you feel satisfied longer, which helps control snacking and overeating. Additionally, semaglutide has effects on the pancreas, where it helps regulate insulin secretion, improves blood sugar levels, and may help reduce cravings for sugary foods

The Benefits of Semaglutide Weight Loss

Semaglutide aids in substantial weight loss when combined with diet and exercise. Benefits from this cutting-edge medication include:

  • Sustained Weight Loss: Helps maintain long-term weight loss better than diet and exercise alone.
  • Appetite Suppression: Reduces cravings and helps control appetite so you can remain on a healthy diet.
  • Improved Blood Sugar Levels: Beneficial for those with type 2 diabetes by lowering blood sugar levels.
  • Enhanced Energy Levels: Many users report higher energy levels, contributing to more active lifestyles.
  • Increased Cardiovascular Health: Preliminary studies suggest benefits in cardiovascular health markers among users.

Types of Semaglutide Weight Loss Treatments

Our treatment options with Semaglutide include:

  • Ozempic: Typically prescribed for individuals managing type 2 diabetes, but is frequently used off-label for weight loss in those without diabetes.  It is recommended for patients who might benefit from the dual effect of blood sugar management and weight reduction.
  • Wegovy: Specifically approved for chronic weight management, Wegovy is used in higher doses for individuals primarily focused on weight loss. It is recommended for patients who are obese or overweight with weight-related medical problems, providing a targeted approach to weight loss without the primary focus on diabetes management.

 

What to Expect During Treatment with Semaglutide

Most patients experience a significant reduction in body weight, with studies showing an average weight loss of 10-15% of body mass. However, like all medications, it can have side effects. Common issues include nausea, diarrhea, and constipation, which typically decrease over time. Rare but serious side effects, such as thyroid tumors, have also been noted and should be discussed with a healthcare provider.

Here’s what you can expect from the semaglutide treatment process:

Initial Consultation: Your treatment starts with a comprehensive consultation with one of our specialists. During this meeting, we’ll assess your medical history, discuss your weight loss goals, and determine the appropriate starting dose of semaglutide for you.

Treatment Procedure: Semaglutide is administered as a once-weekly subcutaneous injection, which you can self-inject at home for convenience. The common sites for injection include the lower abdomen, the inner thigh, or the upper arm. During your initial visit, you will receive a detailed demonstration of how to administer the injections safely and effectively.

Treatment Kit: Each prescription comes with a complete injection kit, which includes everything needed for the injections. This ensures you feel confident and prepared to administer them at home.

Dosage Schedule:

  • Starting Dose: Your treatment will begin with a low starting dose of 0.25 mg to ensure your body adjusts well to the medication.
  • Incremental Dose Increases: To maximize the effectiveness of the treatment, the dose will be gradually increased every four weeks based on your body’s response and tolerability.
  • Maintenance Dose: The typical maintenance dose is usually up to 2.5 mg, adjusted according to your ongoing response and any side effects you might experience.
  • Ongoing Support and Monitoring: Throughout your treatment, you’ll have regular follow-up appointments to monitor your progress and make any necessary adjustments to the dosage. These check-ins are vital to ensuring your treatment is effective and to address any concerns you may have. We also provide guidance on proper injection techniques, handling of the medication, and safe disposal of used needles.

Are You a Candidate?

Semaglutide may be right for you if you want to reduce your body weight significantly and are struggling with diet and exercise alone. Ideal candidates are those who: 

  • Have a BMI of 30 or higher or 27 or higher with weight-related conditions.
  • Are committed to following a supervised diet and exercise program.
  • Do not have a history of thyroid cancer or a family history of specific thyroid or endocrine diseases.
  • Seek a non-surgical solution to weight loss that is integrated with medical supervision.
