What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved drug, originally developed to treat type 2 diabetes and obesity, and falls into the category of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. 

This medication works by imitating the action of the GLP-1 hormone naturally released in the gastrointestinal tract after eating. One of the main functions of GLP-1 is to stimulate insulin production in the body, decreasing blood glucose levels (sugar).

Moreover, when there are higher levels of GLP-1 in the body, it interacts with areas of the brain that help to suppress appetite and create a sensation of fullness – this can lead to reduced feelings of hunger and ultimately aid in weight management.

What Are The Results?

Individuals taking semaglutide receive a weekly injection, reducing their appetite and causing them to eat less. In addition, semaglutide can promote the production of hormones that stimulate weight loss and boost one’s metabolism. 

Patients typically start seeing the effects of the drug set in between eight and 12 weeks after starting injections. The amount of weight an individual loses depends on several factors, such as the types of foods they choose and their level of physical activity.

What is The Process For Receiving Semaglutide Injections?


Before receiving semaglutide injections, you must schedule a consultation with one of our doctors — this will allow us to assess your overall health, medical history, and weight loss goals. It will also help us determine if you are an appropriate candidate for semaglutide injections. 


Once we determine if you’re a candidate for semaglutide, we’ll schedule a time for you to come in to administer your first injection.

Semaglutide Injections

Semaglutide injections must be administered weekly. Doses typically start at .25 milligrams; however, we may decide to increase the dosage depending on your body’s response over time.
