Complimentary Semaglutide Consultation

Lose 1-2lbs per week with Semaglutide, an FDA-approved injectable administered once weekly to help with long-term weight management.

What Is Semaglutide?

GLP-1 is an incretin hormone that plays a role in your appetite and digestion. Incretins (hormones released by your small intestine) are sent out by your body after you’ve eaten a meal to help lower your blood sugar by triggering insulin and blocking other sources of sugar.
Incretin also slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach (called gastric emptying). The result of these actions causes you to feel full – lowering your appetite and causing you to lose weight. Medications like GLP-1 agonists are referred to as incretin mimetics since they “mimic” these effects.

A BMI greater than 27 accompanied by a weight-related medical problem such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol.

Who is Not a Candidate?

How Is Semaglutide Administered?

You’ll give yourself the injection once a week, on the same day each week. It can be given at any time of day, and you can take it with or without food. Semaglutide is injected just under the skin (subcutaneously) in your abdomen. Since Semaglutide slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach, you may experience side effects like nausea and vomiting.
The goal is to have limited unfavorable side effects while losing 1-2 lbs/week (and feel the benefits of the medication-less appetite, cravings, and portion sizes). We will do this at the least effective dosing. We may need to adjust your dose every 2 weeks in order to achieve that goal.

You may experience these effects more strongly when your provider increases your dose. Additional common side effects can include: stomach pain, indigestion, and bloating.
