What is Semaglutide?

Initially designed as a treatment for type 2 Diabetes patients, Semaglutide is a powerful glycemic stabilizer that can boost insulin levels while decreasing the secretion of the peptide hormone glucagon, which stabilizes blood sugar levels. Beyond these vital functions, the medication is also able to achieve a significant reduction in appetite, causing the patient to eat less frequently. While Semaglutide in Pittsburgh is incredibly effective on its own at achieving weight loss, patients tend to see the biggest benefit when they combine it with a healthy diet and exercise. 

How does Semaglutide work?

Semaglutide, an FDA-approved treatment, is a peptidic GLP-1 receptor agonist that interacts with GLP-1, a hormone responsible for regulating hunger levels in the body. By engaging with this hormone, Semaglutide triggers a sense of fullness even with a reduced calorie intake, aiding in appetite control.

In addition to its hunger-regulating effects, Semaglutide also stimulates insulin secretion from the pancreas to address high blood sugar levels. It further slows down the digestive process by delaying gastric emptying, leading to decreased appetite and accelerated weight loss.

Our Semaglutide injections are administered on a weekly basis. When combined with a healthy lifestyle, patients undergoing Semaglutide treatments have the potential to experience a significant drop of up to 15% in body weight.

What are the benefits of Semaglutide?

Various lab studies have shown that Semaglutide can achieve a greater amount of weight loss than other treatments. 

Some of its most prominent benefits include: 

  • Non-addictive medication
  • Most patients experience minimal to no side effects
  • Decreased appetite and cravings
  • Faster onset of feelings of satiety
  • Non-stimulant in nature
  • Well-tolerated by the majority of patients
  • Safe and effective treatment option
  • Prolonged feelings of satiety
  • Significant weight loss
  • Slowed digestion

Who is a candidate for Semaglutide?

In order to obtain a prescription for Semaglutide in Pittsburgh, patients need to consult with a qualified weight loss specialist. Typically, individuals with a BMI of 30 or higher are considered suitable candidates for this treatment. However, those with a BMI as low as 27, as well as individuals with certain medical conditions like hypertension, type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol, may also qualify for Semaglutide treatment.

During the consultation, our team conducts a comprehensive assessment of the patient's medical history and current health condition to determine their eligibility for Semaglutide treatment. It is important for patients to disclose any existing tumors or cancer history, as such cases may affect eligibility. Additionally, patients are required to inform their practitioner about any medications they are currently taking to ensure a safe and appropriate treatment plan.

What does the treatment involve?

Typically, Semaglutide injections are administered once weekly, with the dosage gradually adjusted over time to achieve the best outcomes. The injections are generally well-tolerated by patients and are typically administered in the midsection, upper arm, or thighs.

Following the initial treatment, patients will be instructed on self-administering the injections at home. While on Semaglutide, patients will have routine follow-up appointments to monitor their progress and ensure the treatment is on track.

Why do I have to start off with a 90-day program?

The fact is that patients see a far greater benefit when sticking with Semaglutide for three months rather than stopping after one or two. Beyond that, the medication is administered in a titrating dose. Patients typically start at 0.25mg to get the body acclimated and go up to 0.5 for the second month. After the second month, the patient’s progress will be re-evaluated and, depending on the findings, their dosage may be increased or decreased for the third month.

Can I cancel at any time?

The initial membership term is 3 months, and then the membership becomes month-to-month. At that point, patients can cancel at any time and for any reason.
