The newest peptide for weight loss: Semaglutide!

Do you struggle to lose weight, no matter how little you eat? Are you frustrated at how hard it is to lose a few pounds? Semaglutide may help you!

 

We are now offering the Semaglutide Weight Loss Program, a comprehensive program to help you start getting that excess weight off. The program includes two virtual visits with a nutritionist, the first month’s supply of semaglutide, and instruction from Dr. Reis on the protocol. 

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a peptide (a small protein) that activates certain metabolic pathways in your body to enhance blood sugar metabolism and to reduce appetite. Semaglutide is available commercially as several FDA-approved medications: Ozempic, Rybelsus, and Wegovy. The first two are FDA approved for diabetics whose blood sugar is not yet controlled, and Wegovy is FDA approved for the treatment of obesity.

How does Semaglutide work?

Semaglutide acts in the body like GLP-1, which is a natural peptide that enhances blood sugar metabolism. Semaglutide also reduces appetite which makes following a weight loss diet easier.

How do I take Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is most effective as a weekly, self-administered injection. This can be done in the back of the arm, abdomen or thigh. The dose is slowly increased over three months and then continued for 6-12 months or until goal weight is achieved. Long term use has not been studied for safety. 

Why use compounded Semaglutide?

Commercial semaglutide would be a good option for many people, however, insurance usually does not cover the cost. It typically costs from $800-1300/month. The other advantage of using a compounded product is that the pharmacy can add other ingredients which may reduce the incidence of side effects.

What is included in the Semaglutide weight loss program?

After a few baseline labs are done (with insurance or at our discounted cash prices), you will receive a health evaluation by Dr. Reis with protocol instructions, an initial nutrition and diet evaluation (virtual), the first vial of medication, and a follow up nutritionist session once you’ve been on the medication 1-2 months.
