What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide for weight loss is a medication that belongs to the class of GLP-1 receptor agonists. Originally approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, semaglutide has also gained approval as a prescription drug for chronic weight management.

When used for weight loss, semaglutide is administered through subcutaneous injections. It works by mimicking the action of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a hormone that regulates appetite and food intake. Semaglutide helps control hunger, increases feelings of fullness, and leads to a reduction in overall calorie intake.

The weight loss effects of semaglutide are typically seen in conjunction with lifestyle modifications, such as a healthy diet and increased physical activity. It is important for individuals considering semaglutide for weight loss to consult with a healthcare professional, as the medication is not suitable for everyone, and potential benefits and risks should be thoroughly evaluated in an individualized manner.

Advantages of Semaglutide for Medical Weight Loss

Is Semaglutide Right for Me?

1. Effective Weight Loss: Numerous studies demonstrate that semaglutide is effective in helping individuals achieve significant weight loss, particularly when incorporated with lifestyle changes like diet and exercise.

2. Improved Blood Sugar Control: Especially beneficial for individuals with type 2 diabetes, semaglutide aids in lowering blood sugar levels, thereby reducing the risk of diabetes-related complications.

3. Appetite Reduction: Semaglutide acts to diminish appetite and enhance feelings of fullness, facilitating adherence to a calorie-controlled diet.

4. Long-lasting Effects: Administered through once-weekly injections or daily oral tablets, semaglutide provides a convenient and sustained solution for weight loss.

How fast does semaglutide work for weight loss?

Semaglutide is effective, but not suitable for everyone. Adults aiming to use it for weight loss should have a BMI of 30 or more (27 and above with one or more weight-related medical issues like type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, and/or high blood pressure).

Individuals at risk of developing a thyroid C-cell tumor or with a family history of thyroid tumors should avoid semaglutide. Others who should refrain from taking it include those with a history of severe allergic reactions to the medication or any of its inactive ingredients.

One of the more commonly used brands of Semaglutide, comes with a warning for potential inflammation of the pancreas, gallbladder issues, low blood sugar, kidney injuries, diabetes-related damage to the retina of the eye (diabetic retinopathy), elevated heart rate, and suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Although these side effects are rare, the supervision of a Nurse Practitioner or Doctor during semaglutide administration generally makes them manageable.

How much weight can you expect to lose with semaglutide?

 According to the Semaglutide Treatment Effect in People With Obesity (STEP) trials, individuals taking 2.4 mg of semaglutide weekly experienced an average weight loss of 6% by week 12, doubling to 12% by week 28.

Regarding the speed of semaglutide's action for weight loss, results begin to show by the end of the first month, albeit subtly due to the low initial doses. Significant weight loss occurs in subsequent weeks, with the peak weight loss observed between weeks 8-28.

Do you need a prescription for semaglutide?

Semaglutide is only available with a prescription from a medical provider. Regular check-ins with a practitioner are necessary due to the potential for side effects or interactions with other medications and herbal products while using Semaglutide as a weight loss treatment.

 Are there payment options?

Yes! We are happy to accept cash and credit cards. Financing is also available through Care Credit so that our semaglutide weight loss program is affordable to all of our patients.
