Semaglutide Medical Weight Loss

Semaglutide is a revolutionary GLP-1 receptor agonist that was originally developed for patients with Type 2 diabetes, but when providers and pharmaceutical developers noticed how much weight their patients were losing, they began to study semaglutide exclusively for weight loss. A series of clinical trials known as the STEP clinical trials demonstrated that almost 90% of patients lost 5% or more of their body weight. There is no other weight loss drug on the market that compares. In June of 2022, the FDA approved semaglutide for weight loss.

Semaglutide acts like GLP-1 (a gut hormone) to: increase insulin production decrease glucagon synthesis delay gastric emptying suppress hunger. It signals your brain that you are full so you can lose weight without feeling like you are depriving yourself.

Every individual is unique and their goals may vary. Studies show on average patients are losing 1-3 pounds/week combined with a healthy diet and exercise.

It is designed to be a maintenance medication for weight loss. Most can expect to be on the medication for at least 3 months. This may vary depending on each individuals’ goals, experience of side effects, finances, and rate of weight loss.

Most do not experience any serious side effects. Commonly reported are GI side effects- nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain Site reactions Fatigue Headaches
