Semaglutide Weight Loss Program
The FDA (Food and Drug Administration) approved semaglutide as a prescription weight loss aid. It's approval has improved the lives of many chronically overweight patients by assisting in safe and consistent weight loss.
Weekly semaglutide injections can help you reach your ideal body weight. Combined with life style changes like diet modification and exercise, weight loss can be maintained for the long term.
Semaglutide injections are not an appropriate treatment for people who only desire to lose a small amount of weight or have a body mass index (BMI) of less than 27. It is also not appropriate for those who are looking for an “instant” or short-term weight loss fix.
Semaglutide was approved for chronic weight management. This medication is indicated for obese patients with a BMI > 30 kg/m2 or overweight patients (BMI of > 27 kg/m2) with at least one weight-related comorbid condition such as high blood pressure, diabetes or elevated cholesterol levels.
Semaglutide belongs to a class of medications known as glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) agonists. GLP-1 agonists work by stimulating the pancreas to increase insulin. This additional insulin causes the stomach to empty over a longer period of time. As a result, the stomach processes food more slowly. This slow and consistent digestion is merely an early step in the chain reaction that makes semaglutide an effective weight loss drug.
As your stomach takes more time to empty itself of food, it sends signals of “fullness” to the brain throughout a larger portion of your day, even if you’re eating less food than usual. The end result is appetite suppression. This allows for medically assisted weight loss without any need for invasive surgeries or harsh stimulants.
A semaglutide regimen will also lead to healthier blood sugar levels, which can help you feel more energetic throughout your day. Stabilized and controlled blood sugar levels can also help improve other areas of your overall health. Even if you aren’t at risk for diabetes, this effect can contribute to a general sense of well-being, which is a crucial component in any weight loss journey.
