Semaglutide Weight Loss

Stop Struggling to Lose Weight

Being physically healthy is a dream for anyone. It not only boosts your self-esteem but also improves your mental health. However, for some people, losing weight can be challenging, and they don’t seem to progress even when eating healthy and hitting the gym. If you are in that situation, semaglutide weight loss treatment may be the right solution for you.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a new medication therapy approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) designed to help obese people lose weight at the rate of 1-2lbs per week. It is an injectable medication that contains a form of the hormone called GLP-1, which regulates insulin production in the body, suppresses hunger signals to the brain, and slows digestion. Semaglutide therapy is delivered weekly via a virtually painless injection. If you wish to participate in this treatment, our medical specialists will evaluate you and provide professional advice before starting the process.

How Does Semaglutide Weight Loss Work?

Semaglutide works by interacting with the body’s hormones responsible for appetite and instructing your brain to suppress hunger cues and slow digestion speed. This means that you will no longer have much appetite for food since whatever you eat will take longer to leave the stomach.

The weight loss injection contains a single active ingredient called GLP-1 analog, which when used as an adjunct with diet and exercise, aids in weight loss in adults with obesity. The medication has also helped most patients reduce fasting blood sugar levels by about 30% and HbA1c levels by 1% over three months.
