Middle Age Bulge

If you ask anybody over 40 years old they will probably tell you that losing weight is much more difficult than when they were younger.  A decrease in hormone levels can trigger fatigue which causes us to be less active and low hormone levels can trigger sugar/carb cravings which cause us to eat.  This combination makes it difficult to lose weight.  Throw in some insulin resistance and decreased muscle mass and you have ideal conditions to gain weight and a struggle to take the pounds off.  While balancing your hormones alone won't make weight loss easy, a combination of healthy eating, hormone balance and getting yourself moving will make losing weight a reality.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a GLP-1 injectable peptide that was originally FDA approved for type 2 diabetes. It has now been approved for weight loss.

How does it work?

Semaglutide lowers blood sugar levels by mimicking the effects of GLP-1, a naturally occurring hormone that stimulates insulin secretion and lowers glucagon secretion from the liver. It also suppresses appetite and slows gastric emptying causing you to feel full faster and longer.

How is Semaglutide administered?

The medication is given as a subcutaneous injection in the belly once a week. You will begin on a starting dose and the dosage may be increased each week by your provider based on your progress. It should be administered on the same day each week, atany time of the day, with or without meals.

What do I eat while on Semaglutide?

Reducing your calorie intake by 500-800 a day with exercise should result in 1-2 pounds per week but this varies from person to person. It is recommended that you eliminate sugar and reduce your carbohydrates to increase weight loss success.

How much weight can I lose per week?

Findings from the New England Journal of Medicine found the mean change in body weight from baseline to week 68 was −14.9% in the semaglutide group as compared with −2.4% with placebo.

Who should NOT take Semaglutide?

Anyone who has a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, diabetic ketoacidosis or people with type 1 diabetes. Semaglutide injection may increase the risk that you will develop tumors of the thyroid gland, including medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC; a type of thyroid cancer). Laboratory animals who were given Semaglutide developed tumors, but it is not known if this medication increases the risk of tumors in humans.

Semaglutide For Weight Loss 

"The Skinny Jab"

The GLP-1 peptide (also known as Semaglutide) is one of the most promising new weight loss drugs to hit the market in years! It is a once weekly injection which has been providing dramatic weight loss results. Our Semaglutide injections have been made even more effective by adding L-carnitine, a potent fat mobilization amino acid.

Semaglutide is a once-weekly injectable prescription medication that can assist patients with long-term weight management.

This treatment works to facilitate weight loss in several ways, including:

  • Slowing stomach emptying
  • Reducing appetite
  • Improving insulin release

Diet adjustments are almost always required when you're wanting to lose weight sustainably and successfully, as a negative energy balance is required for weight loss. 

However, Semaglutide makes this process easier, as it means that you feel more satisfied for longer after eating less food. Because of this, it helps many people to easily stick to a low-calorie diet without experiencing hunger.

Semaglutide is most effective as part of a comprehensive weight loss program that includes a 500 calorie per day reduction with 20 minutes of exercise per week. Unlike many other weight loss medications, this medication can be used for long-term weight loss management.

It can also help to reduce cravings, as people are generally less inclined to snack if they feel satisfied or comfortably full.

  • The largest clinical trial showed that people using a GLP-1 (semaglutide) lost an average of 14.9% of their initial body weight - 12.4% more than those who didn't use the medication.  The average person in this study lost 15% of their body weight. This randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled trial enrolled more than 2,600 patients taking semaglutide and more than 1,500 taking the placebo.

Are there any side effects?

Possible side effects are nausea, vomiting, stomach upset, diarrhea, tiredness, dizziness, or constipation may occur. If you experience side effects they are usually be mild. Most mild side effects go away in a few days or weeks and won't require medical attention.

What if I have never injected myself before? 

Your provider will step you through your first injection making sure you have the correct dose and procedure.

While weight loss cannot be guaranteed, Semaglutide has a excellent track record for getting results.
