Semaglutide for Weight Loss
Our Semaglutide weight loss program involves a series of injections of the peptide, Semaglutide. The injections are picked up on a monthly basis, and injected at home once a week.
Semaglutide when used with a proper diet and exercise program, can help control blood sugar.
It works by causing an insulin release in response to increased blood sugar, such as happens after eating a meal.
This peptide is usually used in people with type 2 diabetes, and is NOT a replacement for insulin in patients using insulin for their diabetes.
It is well known that controlling high blood sugar in diabetics helps prevent kidney damage, blindness, nerve problems, loss of limbs, sexual function problems, as well as helping lower the risk of death from heart attack or stroke.
In otherwise healthy people, semaglutide, along with a proper diet and exercise program, can assist with weight loss. In addition to helping with controlling blood sugar as previously noted, the peptide inhibits gastric emptying.
It also decreases acid secretion and stomach motility, as well as allows for decrease in grehlin and increase in leptin, which collectively decreases appetite. Because you are not as hungry and are satiated quicker with each meal, you tend to eat less overall.
Keep in mind that semaglutide is not a weight loss program in and of itself, but should be combined with a healthy diet and exercise program.
