Semaglutide is indicated for chronic weight management in individuals with a body mass index (BMI) that is considered to be outside of the healthy range and should be used along side a healthy reduction in caloric intake and increase in physical activity.
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1). This is a hormone that is naturally produced by the body that impacts the regulation of blood sugar. Semaglutide works by stimulating the pancreas to increase the release of insulin. Due to the additional insulin released, the stomach will empty over an extended period of time which sends a message and the brain receives signals of "being full".
How it works.
Semaglutide is injected once weekly for a period of time determined by our physician. We will then have you come in after 6 weeks for a short visit to follow up on your medication, weight loss, and answer any questions you may have about your regimen.
A consultation with our physician is required prior to beginning Semaglutide to determine if you are a candidate.
