Medical Weight Loss

What is Semaglutide? 

Semaglutide injection is used along with a diet and exercise program to control blood sugar levels in adults. Semaglutide injection is used along with an individualized low-calorie, low-fat diet and exercise program to help with weight loss in obese adults or overweight adults who may also have high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol. It works by helping the pancreas to release the right amount of insulin when blood sugar levels are high. Insulin helps move sugar from the blood into other body tissues where it is used for energy. Semaglutide also works by slowing the movement of food through the stomach and may decrease appetite and cause weight loss. 

Benefits of Medical Weight Loss:

  • Improved mood. 
  • Improved sleep. 
  • Increase self-esteem. 
  • Lower the risk for certain cancers. 

Pros of Using Semaglutide for Weight Loss:

  • Proven effectiveness: Clinical trials have demonstrated significant weight loss results with Semaglutide, with participants losing an average of 15% of their body weight. 
  • Improved Metabolic Health: Semaglutide doesn’t just support weight loss; it also helps improve overall metabolic health, reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and improving glycemic control. 
  • Appetite suppression: Semaglutide helps control hunger by mimicking the effects of a natural hormone called GLP-1, which regulates appetite. 
  • Improved blood sugar control: Semaglutide can also help regulate blood sugar levels, which is particularly beneficial for individuals with type 2 diabetes. 
  • Non-surgical option: Semaglutide provides an alternative to more invasive weight loss procedures like bariatric surgery.
