Semaglutide mimics a naturally occurring peptide in the body called GLP-1. Numerous studies have shown that this peptide reduces food cravings, reduces appetite, and helps control blood sugar.
Typically you will find that your appetite is drastically reduced- this may start off slowly and increase as your prescribed dose increases. We do recommend that you change your eating habits to eat healthier, nutrient-dense foods. However, you will find that if you don’t eat healthy foods, you may not feel well physically throughout the program. Exercise is also recommended with this program.
The eligibility criteria for Semaglutide treatment includes the following specific guidelines:
Individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher or a BMI of 27 or higher with at least one weight-related health condition, such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol, may qualify for Semaglutide treatment.
How We Prescribe Semaglutide on Our Program
We do not prescribe Semaglutide under any of its brand names. Instead, we work with a compounding pharmacy to compound it with Levocarnitine, an amino acid which may give you added energy and may help maintain lean muscle lass while you are on your journey to healthy weight loss.
All of our patients start off at a lower dose for the first month, and then the dose is titrated (increased) monthly based on your individual response.
Starting off with a smaller dose may help minimize potential GI related side effects. We will be happy to make recommendations to help minimize the side effects.
Semaglutide is a weekly injection administered subcutaneously. The needle is very small, and the injection is painless. You inject the dose under the skin into the abdomen or thigh. It can be taken with or without food.
Comprehensive Benefits of GLP-1 Medications
GLP-1 medications are a revolutionary class of drugs with an array of medical benefits beyond just weight loss. They are becoming increasingly popular due to their multifaceted effects on various metabolic parameters. Here's a detailed list of the medical benefits associated with GLP-1 medications:
Appetite Control: GLP-1 medications help signal the brain to feel full, effectively reducing appetite and caloric intake.
Metabolic Efficiency: These drugs can also help improve metabolism, contributing to more sustainable weight loss.
Blood Sugar Management
Improved Insulin Sensitivity: GLP-1 medications improve the body's sensitivity to insulin, making it easier for cells to take in sugar from the bloodstream.
Reduced Glucagon Secretion: They help in lowering the levels of glucagon, a hormone that otherwise raises blood sugar levels.
Glycemic Control: The medications can lead to more stable blood sugar levels throughout the day, beneficial for managing Type 2 diabetes.
Reduced Blood Pressure: Some users have reported a reduction in systolic and diastolic blood pressure.
Improved Lipid Profile: There’s evidence that GLP-1 medications can improve the lipid profile by reducing LDL ('bad cholesterol') and increasing HDL ('good cholesterol').
Slowed Gastric Emptying: By slowing down the rate at which the stomach empties, these medications can lead to better digestion and absorption of nutrients.
Reduced Inflammation: Research has shown a reduction in markers of inflammation, contributing to overall better metabolic health and potentially reducing the risk of chronic diseases.
Reduced Liver Enzymes: GLP-1 medications have been found to reduce liver enzymes in some patients, which may be indicative of improved liver function.
β-Cell Preservation: There is evidence to suggest that these drugs may help preserve the function of β-cells in the pancreas, which are responsible for insulin production.
Improved Mood: Though not yet fully understood, some patients report an improvement in mood and a decrease in symptoms of depression.
Note: Always consult your healthcare provider for a comprehensive understanding of how GLP-1 medications may benefit you. This list is not exhaustive, and individual results can vary. Medications are only prescribed when deemed medically necessary and appropriate for the patient's condition.
