SEMAGLUTIDE INJECTIONS

FAT LOSS INJECTIONS ARE HERE!

Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. It is primarily used in the treatment of two main conditions – diabetes and obesity. The mechanism of action of semaglutide is to slow down your digestion by increasing the gastric emptying time. This will make you feel fuller for longer and it will also decrease the feeling of hunger. Semaglutide is typically prescribed as part of a broader treatment plan that includes dietary modifications and exercise to achieve the best results.

It's important to use semaglutide only under the guidance of a healthcare professional, as they can provide personalized advice on the appropriate dosage, administration, and monitoring to ensure the best outcomes and minimize potential side effects.

 

What are the benefits of semaglutide?

 

Type 2 Diabetes:

  1. Blood Sugar Control: Semaglutide helps lower blood sugar levels by increasing insulin secretion and reducing glucagon release, which leads to improved glycemic control.

  2. Weight Loss: Many individuals with type 2 diabetes struggle with weight management. Semaglutide has been shown to promote weight loss, making it a valuable option for those who need to lose weight to better manage their diabetes.

  3. Cardiovascular Benefits: Some studies have suggested cardiovascular benefits of semaglutide, such as a reduced risk of heart-related complications in individuals with diabetes.

  4. Reduced Risk of Hypoglycemia: Unlike some other diabetes medications, semaglutide is less likely to cause hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), making it safer for individuals who are at risk of hypoglycemic events.

Obesity:

  1. Significant Weight Loss: Semaglutide is approved for chronic weight management and has been shown to lead to substantial weight loss when used alongside a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.

  2. Improved Health Outcomes: Weight loss achieved with semaglutide can lead to improved health outcomes for individuals with obesity. It may reduce the risk of various obesity-related conditions such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, and sleep apnea.

  3. Reduced Risk of Type 2 Diabetes: By promoting weight loss and improving insulin sensitivity, semaglutide can also lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes in individuals with obesity.

  4. Enhanced Quality of Life: Weight loss can lead to increased mobility, improved self-esteem, and a better overall quality of life.

What are the risks of getting semaglutide?

  1. Gastrointestinal Side Effects:

    • Nausea (can be severe and can last several days to weeks)

    • Vomiting (can be severe and lead to dehydration)

    • Diarrhea

    • Constipation

    • Abdominal pain

  2. Hypoglycemia (Low Blood Sugar): While semaglutide itself is not known to cause hypoglycemia, it may occur when used in combination with other diabetes medications, especially insulin or sulfonylureas.

  3. Acute Kidney Injury: Some individuals may experience a decline in kidney function while taking semaglutide. This is likely secondary to decrease water intake due to nausea. Please report to your provider if you having trouble keeping any liquids down for more than 24hrs.

  4. Pancreatitis: Although rare, semaglutide has been associated with pancreatitis, a potentially serious inflammation of the pancreas. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience severe abdominal pain.

  5. Thyroid Tumors: In animal studies, semaglutide has been linked to an increased risk of thyroid tumors. However, it is unclear if this risk translates to humans. Your healthcare provider will monitor your thyroid function during treatment.

  6. Allergic Reactions: Some individuals may experience allergic reactions to semaglutide, which can include symptoms such as itching, rash, and difficulty breathing. Seek immediate medical attention if you experience severe allergic reactions. In order to safely administer this medication we require that you have an in-person medication administration for the first 4-8 weeks.

  7. Injection Site Reactions: Injections of semaglutide may lead to redness, itching, or swelling at the injection site.

  8. Gallbladder Problems: Semaglutide may increase the risk of gallbladder-related issues, including gallstones.

  9. Heart Problems: In some studies, semaglutide has been associated with an increased heart rate. People with a history of heart disease should use this medication with caution.

  10. Bone Health: There have been concerns about potential effects on bone health, but further research is needed to establish a clear link between semaglutide and bone-related issues.
