What Is Semaglutide Weight Loss?
Semaglutide, also known as (Wegovy™) is a prescription medication for long-term weight management. This FDA-approved injection is formulated to help with weight loss in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and exercise.
How Does Semaglutide Work?
Semaglutide helps you lose weight by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). This hormone is responsible for sending an “I’m full” signal to your brain. It does this by slowing gastric emptying. This helps you feel full earlier and stay full longer. Glycemic control and insulin sensitivity improve and help you lose excess fat.
How Is This Treatment Administered?
This treatment can only be administered as an injection and must be done weekly. Semaglutide is available in several doses: 0.25, 0.5, 1.7 and 2.4 mg. When you arrive for your consultation, we will discuss this treatment in depth and create an optimal treatment protocol. This will be monitored and adjusted based on your needs.
What Results Can I Expect?
This injectable works directly with the gastrointestinal system, so some gastrointestinal side effects can be expected. Some of the most common side effects reported include:
- Heartburn & Stomach Pain
In clinical trials, an average of 35lb of weight loss was reported after using semaglutide – this represents a 14.9% reduction in initial body weight.
