Physician-managed weight loss

By influencing appetite regulation, managing food intake, and potentially paving the way for enduring metabolic changes, Semaglutide injections can be a turning point in achieving a slimmer figure and improved overall health.

What are Semaglutide injections?

Semaglutide is a medication that was initially designed to treat type 2 diabetes. It belongs to a class of drugs known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. These drugs mimic the effects of a hormone called GLP-1, which is naturally produced by the body to regulate blood sugar levels. When used for weight loss, Semaglutide has proven effective in regulating appetite and food intake. That said, it is imperative to recognize that Semaglutide is a synergistic component within a larger framework that encompasses healthy lifestyle modifications.

What should I expect?

Semaglutide is administered as a subcutaneous injection once a week. It alters the body's hunger and fullness signals, helping you feel satisfied with smaller amounts of food. It also slows down the rate at which the stomach empties, contributing to a prolonged feeling of fullness after meals.

It is important to note that while semaglutide can be effective, it is not a standalone solution. A comprehensive approach that includes a balanced diet, regular exercise, and healthy lifestyle changes is still crucial to achieving and maintaining weight loss.

What is the recovery process like?

Semaglutide is non-invasive, though some may experience minimal side effects during the initial stages of treatment, including nausea and vomiting. These side effects often subside as the body adapts to the medication. We may recommend starting with a lower dose and gradually increasing it over time to minimize discomfort.

How much weight can I lose?

The result of Semaglutide can vary from person to person. Many individuals start seeing noticeable weight changes within the first few weeks of treatment. Clinical trials have reported an average weight loss of around 15% to 20% of initial body weight over the course of a year.

Semaglutide injections can be a real-world catalyst for change, with the effect continuing even after discontinuing the medication. This indicates that Semaglutide may trigger long-lasting changes in appetite regulation and metabolism.
