Diet and exercise alone rarely produce lasting weight loss. Your body’s natural tendency to eat more and store more fat sabotages your weight loss attempts. Medical weight loss with semaglutide changes the equation. You will find that you eat less and lose weight more quickly, seeing results that motivate you even more. 

What is Medical Weight Loss With Semaglutide?

Medical weight loss combines medication with lifestyle changes to produce significant weight loss. Semaglutide is a medication that triggers several processes in your body. It decreases hunger, changes your body’s insulin release, and causes you to eat fewer calories. Weight loss can have significant mental and physical health benefits. Our experienced nurse practitioner will guide your treatment.

Am I a Candidate for Medical Weight Loss With Semaglutide?

The majority of all Americans are overweight or obese. Many of these people make good candidates for medical weight loss with semaglutide. Those who have struggled to lose weight with other methods often succeed when assisted with medication. 

Semaglutide is not recommended for everyone. People with type 2 diabetes should not use this medication for weight loss since it can affect their insulin levels. Those with a family history of certain cancers should also not use semaglutide. Semaglutide may not be recommended for those with kidney issues or pancreatitis. You should not start medical weight loss while pregnant or breastfeeding. 

How Does Medical Weight Loss With Semaglutide Work?

Semaglutide is available under several brand names for weight loss and type 2 diabetes. It is FDA-approved for weight loss and has been proven to provide significant results. Semaglutide mimics the activity of GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide 1). This peptide plays a vital role in appetite and many other metabolic factors related to metabolism. 

Our nurse practitioner administers semaglutide by weekly injection. During your appointment, she will also review your lifestyle progress to help you maintain your weight loss. The starting and final doses may vary depending on your needs and response to the medication. Once you reach your target dose, you will see the full benefits of treatment.

Many people see significant weight loss when starting a medical weight loss program. Research has indicated that people can lose between 10% and 20% of their body weight. This weight loss has huge medical and emotional benefits and provides powerful motivation to continue with lifestyle changes. Each person will lose weight at a different rate and achieve a different final weight loss goal. 

Are There Any Side Effects From Semaglutide?

Like any medication, semaglutide can have side effects. The most common include nausea, diarrhea, bloating, and other digestive issues. These are usually not bothersome enough for people to leave the program. Other side effects can occur, especially in people with pre-existing medical conditions.
