Many prospect patients ask us how they can achieve optimal weight loss without feeling hungry all the time while boosting their energy levels. We have seen incredible transformations in our patients who get Semaglutide injections or peptides for weight management. As demonstrated in our before and after photos, adults flaunt slimmer bodies after the treatment. Each person’s experience and results with this medical treatment may vary.
Semaglutide weight loss injections are used for adult weight management. It works by replicating the hormone glp-1’s effects . this hormone plays a key role in decreasing appetite and food absorption.
New patients start with a low dose of Semaglutide and the dose increases with time so our bodies can. Generally, Semaglutide users lose 15% of their body weight. Based on research and studies, this noninvasive weight loss medication does help patients achieve their goals but you must commit the time and discipline that’s required with the medication.
As a part of your treatment plan, you’ll make regular visits to be monitored by our functional medicine expert who will answer questions and deliver monthly injections to you, or send monthly prescriptions, discuss the weight loss plan for the month, routine lab analysis and physical exams. We’ll monitor your progress throughout to ensure safety and efficacy.
Semaglutide is a medication belonging to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (glp-1) receptor agonists that acts on the brain, pancreas and GI system to help with satiety and gastric absorption of food. In the past, Semaglutide was used in patients with type-2 diabetes to improve glycemic control. There have been many clinical studies that show Semaglutide as an effective weight loss solution. Patients can expect:
✓ Decreased appetite
✓ Improved blood sugar control
✓ Increased fat loss
✓ Lower risk of certain
health conditions like high blood pressure and high cholesterol
While Semaglutide is a reliable long-term weight management solution, we believe it works best as an adjunct to diet and exercise.
Mounjaro is another popular weight loss treatment within the same class as Semaglutide. Like Semaglutides, Mounjaro is also an incretin mimetic. However, Mounjaro works differently by acting on GIP and GLP-1 receptors. Semaglutide only works on the GLP-1 receptor. Both drugs are used for treating type-2 diabetes.
As a dual-acting GIP and GLP-1, Mounjaro lowers fasting and postprandial glucose concentrations. In addition, Mounjaro decreases food intake, reduces body weight, improves the health of patients, and overall enhances their quality of life.
Semaglutides are only GLP-1 receptor agonists. Therefore, they bind only to the GLp-1 receptor and stimulate insulin release from the pancreas. As a result, this prescription drug slows digestion, allowing you to feel fuller for longer without overeating.
It is important to note that you should never use these medicines with other GLP-1 or GIP receptor agonists.
During your weight management consultation, we will discuss the different plans and what treatment would be best for you. Semaglutide cost varies based on several factors, insurance, the type of injection you choose, etc. Schedule a consultation with our expert doctor to get a personalized estimate for Semaglutide, or weight loss peptides. We want to spend time getting to know you as a patient, and come up with a plan that best fits you. Let us know if you have questions and how we can help make this process easy and educational.
Semaglutide results don’t show overnight. It’s essential to have realistic expectations and show up to all your treatment sessions. By sticking to your treatment plan and practicing a healthy lifestyle, you’ll get an impressive transformation. We encourage you to eat clean and balanced meals and move your body every day to maximize the injection’s benefits.
It’s helpful for patients to track their progress with before and after pictures. These provide a visual representation of how the treatment is affecting your body over time. This can also be a fantastic way to stay motivated and on track with your weight loss goals.
If you are prescribed the Semaglutide injections, there are specific injection sites on the body for this medication. Semaglutide shots are typically given as a shot under the skin of the stomach, thighs, or upper arms. It is a good idea to use a different body area each time you give yourself the injection. Keep track of where you administer your shot each week in a notebook or journal to make sure you rotate body areas.
As with any medical treatment, Semaglutide may cause comon side effects, but they’re usually not serious:
For most people, the symptoms are mild and disappear over time on their own but their are medications we provide if they dont. You can minimize potential side effects by:
Clinical trials have shown Semaglutide is an effective obesity treatment. Patients receiving a 2.4 mg dose lost a mean of 6% of their weight after three months. After six months, the majority of patients in a cohort study lost 5-10% of their weight.2 Some even lost 20% or more.
Semaglutide injections are in a class of medications called incretin mimetics. They work by helping the pancreas release the correct amount of insulin when blood sugar levels are high. Insulin helps move sugar away from the blood into other body tissues, where it is used as energy.
As previously mentioned, the most comon side effects of Semaglutide include nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. Although rare, serious side effects are possible—such as allergic reactions. If you are concerned about this drug’s risks or side effects, speak to your provider during a consultation.
Not everyone is eligible for Semaglutide. Doctors can prescribe it for adults dealing with obesity, with a body mass index (BMI) greater than 30, or overweight, with a BMI greater than 27, and with weight-related medical issues, including high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol.
Semaglutide injections and oral tablets require a prescription. Because of this, Semaglutide is not available as an over-the-counter medication.
Studies on Semaglutide for weight loss show that a vast majority of people who take Semaglutide gain weight back within a year of stopping the medication. This is why it is so crucial to follow your treatment plan AND commit to a healthy lifestyle to ensure long-lasting weight loss.
