Semaglutide Injection

Injections for Weight Loss

aSemaglutide was initially approved by the FDA for the treatment of type 2 diabetes in 2014. During these studies, the patient’s results included significant weight loss (average of 15%!) and was later approved by the FDA for weight loss in patients without diabetes.

It is a Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, which means it binds to the same receptors as glucagon and regulates blood sugar swings by promoting the release of insulin from the pancreas. 

Patients lose about 1 to 2 pounds per week, on average! There are several potential benefits of weight loss therapy. First, it may help reduce hunger symptoms and improve overall calorie intake. Second, it may help reduce fat accumulation in the body by slowing down the breakdown of triglycerides into free fatty acids. Third, it may improve blood pressure control by decreasing triglyceride levels and blocking adipogenesis (the formation of new fat cells). Fourth, it may improve mental health outcomes by improving glucose metabolism and reducing depression symptoms. Give us a call today to learn more about how weight loss injections can help.

What Is aSemaglutide?

aSemaglutide is a once-weekly injectable drug originally created to treat obesity and diabetes. It belongs to a group of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists. This helps the body use calories more efficiently by slowing the digestive process, causing your stomach to fill quickly and stay full longer. This can help you lose weight by helping you eat fewer calories.

How Does This Work To Help You Lose Weight?

This medication helps you lose weight by steadying your blood sugars, resulting in decreased sugar cravings, and by slowing the gastric process. This causes your stomach to fill quickly, resulting in decreased portion sizes and loss of hunger.
