What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an injectable medication for those struggling with their weight that can aid in weight loss, metabolic control, and increased energy levels by enhancing natural processes. As a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor, semaglutide can help regulate glucose levels and suppress appetite by activating GLP-1 enzymes that stimulate insulin release from the pancreas after eating, thereby reducing blood sugar levels. Additionally, it can increase feelings of fullness by boosting satiety hormones like cholecystokinin (CCK) and GLP-1 while decreasing the hunger-triggering hormone ghrelin.

Benefits of Semaglutide

Semaglutide weight loss treatment can have a significant impact on a person’s quality of life by improving overall health, appearance, and well-being. As a non-surgical treatment, it offers a more convenient and less invasive option compared to surgical weight loss procedures. By achieving weight loss goals through this injectable medication, individuals can experience numerous benefits, provided they fully follow all instructions from their prescribing physician. Some of these benefits may include:

Semaglutide Candidates

For eligibility into weight loss treatment with semaglutide Atlanta patients must meet certain criteria, including body mass index (BMI) requirements and other considerations. It is also important that candidates have tried other weight loss methods, such as diet and exercise, without success. It may not be appropriate for individuals with severe gastrointestinal disorders, liver or kidney disease, and certain other illnesses. Overall, weight loss treatment with semaglutide can help individuals lose weight and enjoy a healthier life.

Consultation and Preparation

At your consultation, we will get to know you and your weight loss goals and introduce you to our staff. Before starting treatment, it is important to discuss your medical history and any current medications you are taking to determine if semaglutide is an appropriate treatment option for you. If we determine that this is the right treatment for you, we will provide you with full details on how to prepare. This usually includes avoiding certain medications as well as alcohol.

Taking Semaglutide

Semaglutide is a potent medication, so it’s extremely important to stick to your prescribed dosage schedule and instructions. Since your body needs some time to adjust to the effects of this medication, it is critical to slowly increase the dose as directed. A typical regimen involves starting with a very small .25 mg dose, doubling every four weeks until your body slowly reaches the maintenance dose of 2.5 mg weekly. Each patient is different, and dosage instructions may vary slightly.

Results, Recovery, and Aftercare

Typically, patients can expect to see results within the first few weeks of starting treatment, with the greatest amount of results occurring within the first six months. However, it is important to note that individual results may vary, and some patients may experience slower or faster weight loss. Since the treatment is delivered via a simple injection, there is no downtime, and regular activities can be resumed immediately. After treatment, patients should follow a post-treatment plan to help maintain their weight loss results. This may include regular exercise, a healthy diet, and ongoing monitoring by your provider.
