Semaglutide for Weight Loss / Obesity

Semaglutide is a breakthrough treatment for people who struggle with serious, chronic weight management challenges. First isolated as an effective diabetes drug, Semaglutide helps release just the right amount of insulin and at the right time. This medication is now available to patients who need to lose a significant amount of weight in a consistent way and achieve results long-term. This treatment method doesn’t rely on stimulants, harmful crash diets, unsustainable exercise plans, or any other mechanism that can jeopardize the patient’s overall health.

 

What is Semaglutide?  An Alternative to Wegovy / Ozempic

In recent months, this medication has been taking the world of weight loss by storm. The FDA (United States Food and Drug Administration) recently approved semaglutide as a prescription weight loss aid. Its approval has already improved the lives of many chronically overweight patients by assisting in safe and consistent weight loss.

High-quality semaglutide for weight loss is available from the trusted experts at Compounding Pharmacy of America. It is offered in a safe, effective, and easy-to-use custom formulation that adds the proven fat-burning power of the amino acid L-carnitine.

There’s no need to struggle with perpetual cycles of weight loss and gain. There’s also no need to live with the hopeless feeling that comes with an inability to manage serious weight issues with diet and exercise alone. Hundreds of millions of people worldwide turn to modern medicine every day to keep their bodies in the best possible condition. It’s long past time to end the stigma associated with seeking medical intervention for serious weight management issues.

Your dedication to healthy lifestyle choices will be crucial for sustainable, long-term weight management. However, injectable semaglutide treatment is an extremely valuable tool. It can help you achieve your goal of having better overall health by getting you on track towards a healthy weight. With weekly semaglutide injections, you can reach your ideal body weight in a way that can be maintained for the rest of your life. You can do so without turning to starvation-based “diets” or unrealistic 30-day workout programs.

 

Semaglutide – Proven Results

A large study was published recently in the New England Journal of Medicine showing some pretty impressive weight loss effects in non-diabetics taking semaglutide.

  1. 50% of people in the treatment group lost at least 15% of their body weight over 68 weeks and 86% lost at least 5%.
  2. Fasting insulin was reduced by 26% and liver function tests normalized.
  3. Patients continued to lose weight for more than 60 weeks without hitting a plateau.

 

Semaglutide for Weight Loss – How Does it Work?

Semaglutide is not a miracle cure or a gimmicky “fat-burning” supplement. It is a long-acting prescription medicine designed to be used over an extended period of several months or more. Semaglutide injections are not an appropriate treatment for people who only need to lose a small amount of weight or have a body mass index (BMI) of 27 or less. It is also not appropriate for those who are looking for an “instant” or short-term weight loss fix.

When your stomach takes more time to empty itself of food, it sends signals of “fullness” to the brain. This signal is sent throughout a larger portion of your day, even if you’re eating less food than usual. The end result of this process is a powerful appetite suppression effect based on the patient’s own natural insulin production. This means patients can benefit from medically assisted weight loss without any need for invasive surgeries or harsh stimulants.

A semaglutide regimen will also lead to healthier blood sugar levels, which can help you feel more energetic throughout your day. Stabilized and controlled blood sugar levels can also help improve other areas of your overall health. Even if you aren’t at risk for diabetes, this effect can contribute to a general sense of well-being, which is a crucial component in any weight loss journey. Contact Dr. Paul C. Tack M.D. to schedule your consultation at 847-625-8300.
