Clinical studies have shown substantial weight loss outcomes using Semaglutide, with participants achieving an average reduction of 15% in their body weight.
Semaglutide regulates hunger by mimicking the actions of a natural hormone called GLP-1, known for its role in appetite regulation.
Enhanced regulation of blood sugar
Semaglutide can also help regulate blood sugar levels, which is particularly beneficial for individuals with type 2 diabetes.
Enhanced metabolic well-being
Semaglutide not only aids in weight loss but also enhances overall metabolic health, lowering the risk of cardiovascular disease and improving glycemic control.
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide, marketed as Ozempic™, is a prescription medication designed for long-term weight management. It is an FDA-approved once-weekly injection that aids in weight loss when used alongside a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity. Numerous studies have indicated significant weight loss among individuals using Semaglutide.
In the largest clinical trial, participants experienced an average weight loss of 35 pounds, representing a 14.9% reduction from their initial body weight. Notably, this was five times greater than the weight loss achieved through diet and exercise alone.
Semaglutide operates by mimicking the hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), targeting areas of the brain responsible for appetite and food intake regulation. As an effective GLP-1 hormone agonist, Semaglutide plays a crucial role in managing diabetes by slowing stomach emptying, inhibiting glucagon (a hormone triggering the release of sugar from the liver), promoting prolonged feelings of fullness, and ultimately leading to weight loss. Additionally, studies highlight its effectiveness in lowering blood glucose levels.
What does the Starter Package includes?The Initial Package comprises 8 weeks of semaglutide, starting with a dose of 0.25 for the initial month and 0.50 for the second month. Following the first two months, the cost is $299 per month with a minimum of 6-month commitment (for 4 weekly injections) for maintenance, involving a higher dosage.
When is the best time to administer Semaglutide?Semaglutide can be taken once a week, at any time of the day, but it should be consistently administered on the same day each week, with or without meals.
When is Semaglutide contraindicated?In the presence of a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma, Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MENS2), or if there is hypersensitivity to Semaglutide.
What are the typical side effects linked to semaglutide?Common side effects of Semaglutide encompass nausea, diarrhea/constipation, bloating, heartburn, belching, dizziness, vomiting, and upset stomach. Usually, these side effects diminish as the body adapts to the medication over time.
How does semaglutide aid in weight loss?Semaglutide imitates the action of a hormone known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), responsible for appetite regulation. Through binding to the GLP-1 receptor, semaglutide enhances the sensation of fullness and decelerates the rate at which the stomach empties. Consequently, this results in a reduction in calorie intake and facilitates weight loss.
What occurs when you discontinue the use of semaglutide?Research, including a 2021 study published in the Journal of the American Medical Association, indicates that individuals often experience significant weight regain upon discontinuing semaglutide treatments. A noticeable uptick in appetite and caloric intake tends to occur shortly after stopping the medication. It remains crucial to sustain healthy lifestyle changes for the maintenance of weight loss.
What occurs when you consume sugar while using Ozempic?Foods High in Sugar: Similar to high-fat foods, those rich in sugar can trigger an increase in blood sugar levels, working against the impact of Ozempic and potentially contributing to weight gain. Additionally, these foods tend to be calorically dense, posing challenges in maintaining a calorie deficit.
During which month do you experience the most weight loss while on semaglutide?The majority of this weight loss occurs within the initial 32 weeks (9 months) and levels off, as the body adjusts to the medication, and individuals establish a sustainable eating pattern.
Do you take insurance?Unfortunately, we are not accepting insurance for the weight loss program at this time.
