Semaglutide - An Overview
Before its introduction as a highly effective long-term weight management solution, semaglutide was used to treat type 2 diabetes. Physicians observed that while this medication increased insulin production and reduced blood sugar levels, it also produced significant weight loss results. The makers of this medication conducted numerous clinical studies before offering it as a breakthrough weight loss medication, which is now FDA-approved for weight management.
Semaglutide is ideal for individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of 29 or greater or adults with a BMI of 27 and at least one comorbidity related to body weight, such as hypertension, insulin resistance, high cholesterol, or heart disease.
Semaglutide is a type of medication called a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist, which mimics the hormone GLP-1 that the body naturally produces. This increase the amount of insulin circulating in your body. The breakthrough weight loss solution lowers blood sugar levels after meals. It regulates blood sugar by stimulating glucose-dependent insulin secretion.
Semaglutide slows down the release of sugar into your blood, so your body burns more fat. It also delays stomach emptying, leaving you feeling fuller longer and limiting your overall calorie consumption.
Several clinical studies show that weekly Semaglutide injections are highly effective at promoting weight loss. In one study, individuals treated with Semaglutide lost an average of 9-13 percent of their body weight over the course of a year without making any changes to their diet and exercise habits.
Yes! Although you will lose weight while on medication, the implementation of a healthy diet and exercise program is important for two reasons:
- Without healthy lifestyle changes there is a very probable chance you will gain the weight back after stopping the medication.
- Although Semaglutide will help burn fat, with out a healthy diet including adequate protein and exercise with muscle training, you could also loose muscle mass.
Semaglutide is safe under medical supervision, producing far fewer side effects than most other weight loss medications. Some individuals report gastrointestinal upset, including nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea, or constipation. To avoid these side effects, we add vitamin B6 to your treatment. We also start you off at a low dosage of Semaglutide and slowly increase it over time until we reach the ideal dosage for weight loss.
If you have any of the following
- Type-1 diabetes
- History of pancreatitis
- If you or a family member have a history of thyroid cancer
- If you or a family member have a history of multiple endocrine neoplasia Type 2
- Are pregnant or planning to become pregnant
- If you have a history of kidney disease
- Are allergic to Semaglutide
We may recommend other weight loss solutions as these are contraindications to this treatment. Make sure to let us know about any health concerns to determine whether Semaglutide is suitable for you.
