SEMAGLUTIDE

INJECTIONS

SEMAGLUTIDE WEIGHT LOSS INJECTIONS

Semaglutide is a drug that was originally created for diabetes. It acts on the glucagon like peptide receptor-1 in the hypothalamus and hindbrain portions of the brain to make patients feel full. In so doing, it significantly reduces patients’ appetites causing them to lose significant amounts of weight.

HOW DOES SEMAGLUTIDE WORK ?

It works by increasing the amount of insulin in your bloodstream, reducing the blood sugar levels of a person who has trouble regulating. Though semaglutide may be used to treat diabetes, it’s not insulin. It’s a medication that can be used to help insulin do its job and lower blood sugar, but most patients are advised to use it as part of a comprehensive approach to treat type 2 diabetes, in conjunction with diet and exercise and any other medication or dietary supplement their doctor has approved.

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS?

  • Better sleep

  • Decreases blood pressure

  • Provides better mobility and pain reduction

  • Improves your overall mood

  • Increases self-esteem

  • Lowers the risk for certain cancers

  • Reduces risk of heart disease, heart attack, and stoke

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM SEMAGLUTIDE ?

You will need to perform the injection once a week, and it needs to be done on the same day every week, although it doesn’t have to be at the same time. The single-use injection is very similar to the ones that diabetics use to deliver their insulin. When administering the injection, it can be in the same area (i.e. abdomen, thigh, upper arm), but you should never do it in the exact same spot. You can also take the injection with or without food, it won’t change the effectiveness of the shot.
 

Semaglutide does not work for everyone, however it can be much more effective when combined with healthy lifestyle changes including:

  • Maintaining a daily protein intake of (2/3) two-thirds to (1) one gram of protein per body weight

  • Limiting or eliminating alcohol consumption

  • Low impact exercise such as walking, yoga or cycling 3-5 times per week

is SEMAGLUTIDE safe to inject ?

Semaglutide is a safe and effective treatment for weight loss, however, due to the nature of the treatment, there are possible side effects from the medication, but usually subside with continued use. Side effects such as  
 

  • Bloating

  • Burping

  • Constipation

Semaglutide treatment for women

WHO SHOULD TAKE SEMAGLUTIDE ?

Before starting Semaglutide for weight loss, it’s important to discuss the potential benefits and risk of treatment with your healthcare provider. That’s because Semaglutide isn’t right for everyone. It’s also a long-term commitment since rebound weight gain is possible if you stop taking it.

For weight loss, Semaglutide was studied in certain adults and adolescents who met established body mass index (BMI) criteria. Because of this, it’s specifically approved for these populations:

  • Adults: Initial BMI of 30 or greater, or BMI of 27 or greater with at least one weight-related health condition (such as high blood pressure, Type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol)

  • Adolescents ages 12 to 17: Initial BMI at or above the 95th percentile for sex and age
