Semaglutide injections Fontana ca 92336

Have you been struggling to manage your weight? Learn about Semaglutide, a new and highly effective weight loss peptide. 

Semaglutide (sold under the brand names Wegovy or Ozempic) is an FDA-approved weight loss medication that falls under the category of GLP-1 receptor agonists. This class of medications has been around since 2005.

What is semaglutide and how does it work in the body?

Semaglutide is a modified molecule our bodies make, called a GLP-1 analog. Semaglutide can help reduce appetite and cravings, which helps individuals control their calorie intake. Semaglutide slows intestinal motility so food stays in the stomach and intestines longer, causing you to feel fuller for longer after meals. The medication also improves insulin sensitivity to regulate blood sugar, which can impact how effectively the body uses fat for energy. It works by increasing insulin production and lowering glucagon secretion as well as targeting areas in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake.

What is a GLP-1 analog and how does semaglutide relate to it?

A GLP-1 analog is a modified version of the naturally occurring GLP-1 hormone made by our bodies. Semaglutide is a GLP-1 analog that has been modified to last longer in the body compared to the natural GLP-1 hormone.  A small change in the semaglutide molecule allows it to last weeks in the body rather than minutes like the natural GLP-1 hormone made by our bodies.

How does semaglutide stimulate insulin secretion and lower glucagon?

Semaglutide stimulates insulin secretion from the pancreas and lowers glucagon secretion, also from the pancreas. This helps lower blood sugar levels.

What areas of the brain does semaglutide target to regulate appetite and food intake?

Semaglutide targets areas in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. This helps reduce appetite and food cravings.

How does semaglutide delay stomach digestion and promote feelings of fullness?

Semaglutide delays how quickly the stomach digests food, leading to a feeling of fullness and satisfaction with smaller meal sizes.

How much weight can I expect to lose?

Semaglutide was FDA-approved for weight loss in 2021 and it has been shown to reduce body weight by at least 15% in 8 weeks, with many more of our patients losing more than 20%.

How is Semaglutide administered?

Semaglutide injections are administered weekly with a painless subcutaneous injection (not much thicker than a human hair). Don’t let the word “injectable” scare you! 

This under-the-skin injection is the first FDA-approved drug for chronic weight management in obese or overweight adults since 2014.

How long can I take Semaglutide?

Most people use Semaglutide injections from 2 months up to a year, depending on how much weight they need to lose. We can tailor your program to match your weight loss goals.
