NEW! Semaglutide Weight Loss Injection

There is a new solution for rapid weight loss.  It is a compounded form of the registered trademark Ozempic, originally indicated to treat diabetes.  After years of being in the market they discovered that one of the side effects of it was weigth loss.  In 2021 it got the indication for weight loss and now some compunding pharmacies have a great weight loss product with low side effects. 

Semaglutide benefits may include:

Promote fat burning

Improve blood sugar levels

Lower A1C

Lowers body mass index

Reduces plaque hemorrhage

Lowers glucose levels in the bloodstream

Semaglutide injections 1x week when used in conjuction with a healthy diet and exercise has a very successful outcome with weight loss and lowering high blood pressure.  Our patients have seen anywhere from 2-4 lbs lost in one week.  It works by supressing your appetite.  The side effects are minimal, especially if you follow the Nurse Practitioner's and Wellness Coach instructions carefully.  There is a starting dose to allow the medicine to build in your system, followed by incremental dosing during the weight loss journey.  This subcutaneous injection (injected in fatty tissue just like an insulin injection ) is not painful and very easy to self-administer.  

Side Effects:

Nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation. Usually can be controlled or avoided, but some patients may not tolerat it at all.  

When you schedule a consult with our Wellness Coach, they will make sure you are the appropriate candidate for this medication.  Then the Nurse Practitioner will meet with you to go over any other conerns and your prescription will be ordered.
