Glucagon-Like peptides: Semaglutide

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist. This class of medications act like the natural hormone GLP-1 made in your digestive system in response to eating a meal.

  • These medications are used to treat Obesity (BMI >30).

  • They work by stimulating the pancreas to produce additional insulin.

  •  Increase the stomach’s emptying time

  • Signal the brain with a feeling of fullness

  • Produces powerful and lasting appetite suppression

  • Protects you against cardiovascular disease

  • Decreases cravings

  • Non-stimulant

  • It is important that you follow a diet and exercise plan along with the weight loss protocol.

Semaglutide consistently, “tricks” your brain and digestive system into thinking that you have just eaten and full which triggers your body into using stored fats as fuel.

Your provider will choose a starting dose once weekly and adjust as needed. The goal is to lose 1-2 lbs/week and at the least effective dosing limited unfavorable side effects. If you are losing weight (1-2 lbs/wk) and feel less hungry you are on the right dose! A higher dose does not mean faster/more weight loss.

Medication can be coupled with our body contouring devices EvolveX and Morpheus for even better results.
