What is Semaglutide?

Initially created for type 2 Diabetes, Semaglutide regulates insulin and glucagon, stabilizing blood sugar. It also reduces appetite, leading to less frequent eating. While Semaglutide is effective for weight loss alone, its results are maximized when combined with a healthy diet and exercise.

How does Semaglutide work?

FDA-approved Semaglutide is a peptidic GLP-1 receptor agonist that regulates hunger by engaging with the hormone GLP-1. It induces a feeling of fullness and aids in appetite control, even with reduced calorie intake.

Semaglutide also stimulates insulin secretion, addresses high blood sugar levels, and slows digestion by delaying gastric emptying, leading to decreased appetite and accelerated weight loss. Injections of Semaglutide in Lexington, MA, are administered weekly, coupled with a healthy lifestyle, can potentially result in a significant body weight reduction of up to 15%.

  • BMI of 30 or higher.
  • BMI as low as 27, along with certain medical conditions such as hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol, may also qualify.

Our team thoroughly assesses the patient's medical history and current health during the consultation to determine eligibility. Patients should disclose any tumors or cancer history, as it may impact eligibility. It is also crucial to inform the practitioner about current medications to ensure a safe and suitable treatment plan.

The standard frequency for Semaglutide injections is once a week, with the dosage adjusted gradually for optimal results. Patients usually tolerate the injections well, commonly administered in the midsection, upper arm, or thighs.

After the initial treatment, patients will continue to come into the office for more injections of Semaglutide in Lexington, MA.  We will stay in close communication with you to track progress and ensure the treatment proceeds as planned.
