Semaglutide for Weight Loss

Semaglutide is the generic version of Wegovy, an FDA-approved injectable weight loss medication. It has been shown to help patients lose weight and keep it off.

Semaglutide for Weight Loss

Who’s a Good Candidate?

The FDA has approved semaglutide for:

  • Obese patients with a BMI greater than 30
  • Overweight patients with a BMI greater than 27 who have medical comorbidities associated with weight (e.g., diabetes, high blood pressure)

If you think you might be a good candidate for semaglutide, it’s important to speak with a doctor. They will be able to help you determine if this medication is right for you, or if you’re a better candidate for a different weight loss treatment.

Lose Weight with Semaglutide

The results of semaglutide have been impressive:

  • According to the FDA, patients who took Wegovy showed an average weight loss of 12.4%.
  • According to The New England Journal of Medicine, patients who took 2.4 mg of semaglutide for weight loss injected once weekly experienced a 14.9% reduction in weight within 68 weeks.

Semaglutide has been shown to be particularly effective when used in conjunction with a reduced calorie diet plan, as well as some form of exercise. Our doctor will work with you to put together a weight loss plan tailored to your needs.

How Does Semaglutide Work?

Semaglutide works by mimicking GLP-1 hormones. GLP (Glucagon-like peptide) is a naturally occurring hormone that targets the appetite-regulating areas of the brain.

When prescribing semaglutide, we slowly increase dosage over the course of 16-20 weeks until the patient can tolerate 2.4 mg per week. This reduces potential side effects. While losing weight slowly can be frustrating for some patients, it is typically much safer and more effective than fast-paced fad diets.
