ABOUT Semaglutide

Our preferred method of helping you meet your weight loss goals is through lifestyle & diet consciousness paired with semaglutide. Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists. Semaglutide may be prescribed by a healthcare professional for individuals with type 2 diabetes who have not been able to achieve good glucose control with diet and exercise alone, or with other oral anti-diabetic medications.

Additionally, semaglutide may also be prescribed to people with obesity as a weight management aid. It is typically recommended for people with a BMI of 27 or with at least one weight-related health condition, such as high blood pressure, PCOS, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol.


Semaglutide for Weight Loss

One of the primary ways semaglutide aids in weight loss is by suppressing appetite. It works by binding to GLP-1 receptors in the brain, sending signals that reduce hunger and increase satiety. This leads to a decreased desire for food, reduced calorie intake, and ultimately contributes to weight loss. Another important mechanism of action of semaglutide is its impact on the reward system in the brain. It helps to regulate the release of dopamine, a neurotransmitter associated with pleasure and reward. By modulating dopamine levels, semaglutide can help reduce cravings and compulsive eating behaviors.

It is important to note that the decision to prescribe semaglutide will be made by a healthcare professional based on an individual’s medical history, overall health status, and specific needs.
