Semaglutide Injection for Weight Loss

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a once-a-week prescription injection clinically proven to aid weight loss.

It is part of the GLP-1 receptor agonist class of medications and was originally designed to regulate blood sugar in those with type 2 diabetes.

In clinical trials, Semaglutide helped patients lose 10-15% of their starting weight, leading to its FDA approval for weight management in 2021.

Semaglutide is the generic form of Ozempic, Wegovy, and Rybelsus and has the same active ingredient.

Unlike controlled substances, Semaglutide is non-habit forming and safe for regular use.

How does Semaglutide aid Weight Loss?

Semaglutide aids weight loss by mimicking the action of the GLP-1 hormone, which is naturally released in your body after eating. The hormone helps suppress appetite and slows down gastric emptying.

This means food stays in your stomach longer, making you feel fuller and reducing cravings. When combined with a healthy diet, the effects of Semaglutide are amplified, leading to significant, long-term weight loss.

Is Semaglutide right for you?

Before starting Semaglutide, our team will evaluate your medical history and determine if this medication is suitable for you. Ideal candidates for Semaglutide typically meet the following criteria:

Adults with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher, which qualifies as obesity, are prime candidates for Semaglutide.

Adults with a BMI of 27 or higher who have at least one weight-related condition, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, or type 2 diabetes, may also benefit from this treatment.

Semaglutide is not recommended for pregnant or breastfeeding women.

Are there any side effects of Semaglutide?

While Semaglutide is generally well-tolerated, some individuals may experience mild to moderate side effects such as nausea, gastrointestinal discomfort, headache, and fatigue. To minimize side effects, it’s recommended to start with a lower dose of Semaglutide and gradually increase it as your body adapts.

Our team will provide guidance on managing any discomfort and will adjust your treatment plan as needed. Regular follow-ups with our medical professionals will ensure that any side effects are promptly addressed.

Semaglutide vs. Other Weight Loss Medications

Semaglutide stands out among weight loss medications for its effectiveness and additional health benefits. Individuals using Semaglutide often experience significant weight loss, averaging 15% of their body weight over 68 weeks, which is higher than many other medications.

While Semaglutide is administered weekly via injection, which may be less convenient than oral medications like orlistat, its overall impact on weight and health makes it a compelling option.

Other medications, such as phentermine, may only act as appetite suppressants and can have side effects like increased heart rate. In contrast, Semaglutide’s side effects, such as mild nausea and gastrointestinal discomfort, are generally manageable and diminish over time.
