MEDICAL WEIGHT LOSS

Medical Weight Loss refers to a medically supervised method of losing weight. It involves the use of FDA-approved medications to manage appetite and curb cravings. Your practitioner will offer advice on how to maintain healthy lifestyle changes, including nutrition and physical demands.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a glucagon like peptide (GLP)-1 inhibitor that works in the body to increase the amount of insulin and reduce the amount of glucagon that is being produced. This in turn will increase your body’s ability to metabolize sugars. This process delays gastric emptying, which causes appetite suppression, which will in turn lead to smaller portion sizes and less cravings.

Semaglutide is administered as a WEEKLY subcutaneous injection to help control your appetite and increase your body’s ability to metabolize sugar. Our Semaglutide regimen, along with diet is FDA approved to help weight loss and maintenance. This drug has proven significant weight loss averaging about 15% body weight. Semaglutide must be combined with exercise and a healthy lifestyle.

Side Effects for Semaglutide

Common side effects include the following.

If you experience a rash, unusual swelling, wheezing, or severe abdominal pain, seek immediate medical attention

What is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is a unique medication that mimics two hormones naturally found in the body: GLP-1 and GIP. After eating, these hormones stimulate the release of insulin, which is responsible for reducing blood sugar. Tirzepatide also reduces the time for the stomach to empty its contents, suppressing appetite.

Who is a good candidate for Tirzepatide?
