Manage your diabetes while losing weight!

What Is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a peptide that imitates the effects of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1), which is known for promoting good health. GLP-1 is naturally produced in the small intestine and it stimulates insulin production while inhibiting glucagon production, thereby improving blood sugar regulation. Research has demonstrated that Semaglutide has the ability to slow down food digestion and regulate appetite. This combination of actions helps to reduce hunger, increase control over eating habits, and minimize food cravings, which are all critical in achieving healthy and effective weight loss.

As an FDA-approved prescription peptide for type 2 diabetes and weight management, Semaglutide was initially developed to manage blood sugar levels in people with diabetes. However, healthcare providers soon discovered that it offers other advantages, particularly for weight loss. Nowadays, Semaglutide is an effective tool for weight loss and blood sugar regulation, empowering people to take charge of their lives.

What are the Benefits of Semaglutide?

Semaglutide can be helpful when used with a healthy diet and exercise. It can help with weight loss, make you feel less hungry, control how much you eat, and reduce food cravings. It can also help lower blood sugar levels, make insulin work better, and improve fertility. Additionally, it may decrease the risk of heart attacks and strokes.

What Side Effects May Occur?

There are some possible negative effects of using Semaglutide. These might include nausea, diarrhea, and discomfort in the abdomen, which are the most common ones. We suggest that patients consume smaller portions of food and stop eating once they feel full, especially when they begin to take the medication. This is because Semaglutide can slow down the rate at which food leaves your stomach, and overeating can increase the likelihood of experiencing nausea.

Moreover, our Semaglutide product contains Vitamin B-6, which can help alleviate nausea.

In addition, some patients might also experience constipation, bloating, and indigestion. Headaches can occur, typically on the day of and the day after the injection. Changes in the taste of food and occasional skin irritation, itching, or soreness at the injection site are also possible.

Guidelines for Semaglutide

  • To use Semaglutide for weight loss, you’ll need to inject it yourself once a week at home until you achieve your goals. You’ll also need to have monthly check-ins with your healthcare provider to discuss your treatment progress and recommended dose.
  • The medication is injected into the fatty layer under your skin once a week.
  • It’s important to follow your healthcare provider’s instructions and recommended dosing for the medication. Don’t adjust the dosage without consulting with your provider.

How to Get Started

If you are a current patient, you can discuss getting started with Semaglutide with a provider at any follow-up appointment (IV hydration, PRP services, etc.) before scheduling an initial Semaglutide consultation with our dietitian. Current patients may also call the office to schedule a 15-minute phone call with a provider to discuss recommendations and get the process started.

New patients will be required first to schedule an initial hormone therapy to consult and complete our introductory bloodwork, before then sitting down for the initial Semaglutide consultation. To get started, all new patients must fill out our initial consultation form and be sure to select your interest in Semaglutide when prompted.
