What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide, an FDA-approved medication for obesity treatment, has demonstrated its efficacy in reducing appetite and food intake through clinical trials. By activating brain receptors responsible for hunger and satiety, it induces a sensation of fullness and diminishes the desire to eat.

In weight loss trials, individuals administered semaglutide experienced significant reductions in body weight and BMI compared to those who received a placebo. This medication is injected once a week and complements a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.

However, it is crucial to acknowledge that semaglutide should not replace healthy lifestyle changes and must be used under healthcare provider guidance.

Is Semaglutide right for me?

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved prescription medication specifically designed for treating obesity, demonstrating both safety and effectiveness through clinical trials. However, it's important to note that, like any medication, Semaglutide may not be suitable for everyone. Prior to initiating Semaglutide, it is crucial to consult with our NP (Nurse Practitioner) about your medical history, current medications, and any other relevant factors that could impact the safety of taking this medication.

Individuals with a history of pancreatitis or other digestive issues, thyroid cancer, or a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer may not be recommended for Semaglutide. It is also essential to inform your healthcare provider about all medications, vitamins, and supplements you are currently taking, as Semaglutide could potentially interact with other medications. Your healthcare provider will evaluate these factors and determine the appropriateness of Semaglutide for your specific situation.


When do the results of Semaglutide treatments become apparent?

The timeframe for observing results with Semaglutide can vary based on factors such as individual response, dosage, and adherence to diet and exercise plans.

During clinical trials, participants using Semaglutide for weight loss typically experienced significant outcomes within 16 to 20 weeks. After a treatment period of 68 weeks, the average weight loss was approximately 15% of their initial body weight.

It's crucial to recognize that weight loss is a gradual process, and individual results may differ. For optimal outcomes, it is essential to combine Semaglutide with a healthy diet and regular exercise routine.

Are there any side effects?

Although the majority of patients undergoing Semaglutide treatments experience no complications, it is important to be mindful of potential side effects. These may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, dyspepsia, and constipation. However, it is important to note that if these symptoms arise, they typically subside within a few weeks.
