What is semaglutide for weight loss?
Semaglutide in a GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) agonist. Similar to other GLP-1 agonist medications, semaglutide mimics the naturally occurring hormone GLP-1, which is an incretin hormone released by your digestive tract after you have eaten a meal. These hormones play a role in your appetite and digestion—it slows down how fast food leaves your stomach. It is one of the reasons why you feel “full” after a meal.
Semaglutide is designed to help you feel “full”—reducing your appetite and thus causing you to lose weight. It is intended to be used in conjunction with a low calorie diet and increased physical activity.
How is a semaglutide administered?
BotoxRN injects semaglutide under the skin with a single-use pen. The dosage administered will be based upon your BMI (body mass index), your biological sex, and age. Semaglutide can be taken before or after you eat. Your dosage will be increased gradually every 4 weeks.
Because semaglutide regulates how fast food leaves your stomach, you may experience side effects such as nausea and vomiting. Gradual monthly increases of your dosage will help make these side effects more manageable, if you experience them.
A free consultation for semaglutide is mandatory. We will analyze your current health status and your medicinal regimen and conduct testing to ensure you are a candidate for semaglutide treatment.
