What is Semaglutide:
Semaglutide is a GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) receptor agonist that provides numerous health benefits. As a GLP-1 agonist, it stimulates insulin release and suppresses glucagon secretion, which helps regulate blood sugar levels. This makes it an effective treatment option for individuals looking to manage their weight and improve their overall health.
Benefits of Semaglutide include:
- Weight Loss: Semaglutide contributes to weight loss by reducing appetite and increasing feelings of fullness, which helps to decrease overall calorie intake.
- Improved Blood Pressure: Semaglutide may help lower blood pressure, reducing the risk of cardiovascular complications. 
- Enhanced Cholesterol Management: Semaglutide has been shown to potentially improve cholesterol levels by reducing LDL ("bad") cholesterol and increasing HDL ("good") cholesterol.
- Improved Blood Sugar Control: As a GLP-1 agonist, Semaglutide aids in blood sugar regulation, making it a valuable option for individuals with type 2 diabetes or those looking to maintain healthy blood sugar levels.
How Our Semaglutide Weight Loss Program works:
We start with a consultation with a weight loss councilor Physician consultation to discuss your goals and needs and exam.
Physician supervised weight loss includes blood work to guide your care.
Semaglutide is given once a week. Pick your own starting day.
Your plan includes a 1 month's supply of Semaglutide/B12 Combination Injection that matches your current dose.*
*Semaglutide doses gradually increase until the desired maintenance dose is achieved. The dosage starts at 0.25mg/week and can go up to 2.4mg/week depending on the needs of the patient.
Vitamin B12 plays an important role in the body, particularly in carbohydrate and lipid (fat) metabolism. Its primary function is to support metabolism and provide sustained energy. Maintaining healthy B12 levels can help improve overall metabolic functions and energy levels, and potentially help reduce any side effects from Semaglutide.
Syringes: High-quality syringes with coated small needles for the most comfort.
The medication is given as a subcutaneous injection using a very small needle. This is typically self-administered in easily accessible areas like the abdominal or thigh.
In-office instruction and a Video tutorial are available.
Semaglutide Injection is a once-a-week dose that works by mimicking hormones that target areas of the brain involved in regulating appetite and food intake. This can help you eat less and lead to weight loss.
Our Semaglutide is combined with B12 for energy, sleep cycle regulation, and a better patient experience,

What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide reduces appetite, it may be prescribed off-label to help people with overweight or obesity to lose weight. Studies show that, when combined with diet and exercise, Semaglutide can improve weight loss.
Semaglutide also helps people with type 2 diabetes control their blood sugar levels. A person injects the medicine into their belly, upper arm, or thigh weekly. Semaglutide can be taken with or without meals.
It may be used in combination with lifestyle changes like diet and exercise, or with other diabetes medications, such as metformin. In addition to lowering blood sugar levels in type 2 diabetes, semaglutide also reduces the risk of cardiovascular events—such as stroke, heart attack, or death—in people with type 2 diabetes and heart disease.
Who shouldn’t take Semaglutide?
Using semaglutide may increase your risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), especially if taken with other diabetes medications like insulin. Ozempic may also increase your risk of developing diabetic retinopathy (vision loss caused by diabetes), gallbladder problems, or gastrointestinal disorders. Semaglutide should not be used by children or by people who:
- Have pancreatitis
- Have a personal or family history of thyroid cancer
- Have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2
- Are currently pregnant or breastfeeding
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued a “black box” warning for Ozempic (a brand name for semaglutide). This is the most severe advisory they issue for a medication. Animal studies have found that Ozempic increases the risk of thyroid tumors. While it is not known if it has the same effect in humans, people with a personal or family history of thyroid cancer, or who have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, should not use Ozempic.
