The game changer in sustained weight loss

Have you been struggling with weight loss? Afraid of taking stimulant drugs for weight loss that can only be taken short term? Are other typical weight loss drugs contraindicated for you? Do you have prediabetes? Have you been considering bariatric surgery?

Semaglutide might be the answer for you. It is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1). This is the same peptide as the popular Ozempic or Wegovy. With lifestyle changes and a reduced-calorie diet, Semaglutide can have a very successful outcome in weight loss.

Semaglutide mimics the effect of “feeling full” resulting in a decreased caloric intake. Semaglutide will delay gastric emptying by reducing glucagon secretion in a glucose-dependent manner. The delay in gastric emptying can reduce appetite, improve control of eating, and reduce food cravings.

Benefits:
Promotes lipolysis
Improves blood sugar levels in adults
Lowers A1C
Lowers BMI
Plaque hemorrhage is reduced
Lowers risk of cardiovascular events such as heart attacks and strokes

Who should not take Semaglutide?
You should not use Semaglutide if you are allergic to it, or if you have: multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (tumors in your glands); a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma (a type of thyroid cancer); or diabetic ketoacidosis.

How is it administered?
It is a once-weekly subcutaneous injection. While some of you may be afraid of injections, these are injections with a VERY SMALL needle into the abdominal area (like insulin injections). There are big advantages to the once-weekly dosing – you don’t have to remember your medications and the Semaglutide is working 24/7 suppressing your appetite without the stimulant effects of typical weight loss medication.

The most common side effects are:
nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, stomach (abdomen) pain, headache, tiredness (fatigue), upset stomach, dizziness, bloated, belching, gas, stomach flu, and heartburn. Note that most of these are manageable by proper dosing and some overlap with the intended effect of “feeling full”.
