Medical Weight Loss

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved weekly injectable prescription medicine used for adults to help them lose weight and keep the weight off. It suppresses your appetite without the stimulant effects of typical weight loss medications.
 
Semaglutide works in conjunction with a diet and exercise plan to help patients lose weight. With the help of a nutrition educator, a low-calorie diet plan and an exercise program tailored to your lifestyle and ability will be developed.
 
The dosage of semaglutide depends on the patient’s starting weight. Medications are administered through a weekly injection, which can be done at home under the guidance of a medical professional.
 
The hormone semaglutide mimics glucagon-like peptide-1, or GLP-1, which regulates appetite and food intake. The reduced-calorie diet that Semaglutide allows patients to follow will allow them to lose weight safely and gradually.
