What are Semaglutide injections?
Semaglutide is a medication used to control blood sugar. It may also reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and other serious complications of type 2 diabetes or heart or blood vessel disease. It works by increasing the amount of insulin in your blood, reducing the blood sugar levels of a person who has trouble regulating blood sugar levels.
How is Semaglutide used for weight loss?
The GLP-1 hormone present in the medication slows down how fast your stomach moves food through, which makes you feel fuller for a longer period of time and helps prevent binge eating.
`The hormone stops the liver from releasing sugar into the bloodstream, which could contribute to fat buildup.
Semaglutide stimulates the pancreas to secrete insulin, reducing blood sugar more.
When used for treating obesity, the medication should always be paired with improved diet and a regular healthy exercise program. Semaglutide can be an effective choice for helping lose weight, advance a successful weight loss program and maintain a healthy body weight for as long as the treatments are given.

What can I expect during Semaglutide weight loss treatment?
Treatment with semaglutide generally starts with an assessment. During this initial screening, our medical team will determine whether this medication is a good choice to help with your weight loss. Expect to get a full consultation of your medical history. Our practitioners will assess your history of allergies, history of cancer and review other medications you may be taking. Assess your current body weight, history of weight loss attempts and body mass index. This assessment will help determine if semaglutide for losing weight is a recommended option for you.
The initial treatment will be a subcutaneous injection of a low dose of semaglutide. This is a deliberately low dose, since possible side effects include a serious drop in blood sugar and it takes time to adjust. Over four weeks, the dose is gradually increased until you’re getting the full dosage once a week. The injections are given on the same day each week for a specified time determined with the practitioner. During your treatment period, we will work with you to develop viable weight management strategies that go beyond the medication. Diet and exercise patterns, building healthy lifestyle patterns and a strong social support network are all part of your strategy to lose weight. This will be included as part of your weight management plan.
How fast do the Semaglutide injections work?
You can expect to see some results by the end of the first month, though the low initial doses of this drug treatment mean the initial results will be subtle and only appear a few weeks in. Larger amounts of excess weight come off in subsequent weeks, with the peak weight loss happening between weeks 8-28.
