What is semaglutide, and how does it work?

Semaglutide is a medication that helps promote weight loss by controlling your appetite. Administered via injection, semaglutide can be an effective tool in helping you move closer to a healthy weight. Injections are usually administered once a week. 

The medication stimulates your pancreas to release insulin when blood glucose levels rise. This insulin boost helps your cells take in excess insulin, removing it from your bloodstream and using it to fuel your body’s many processes. 

Transformed Medical Weight Loss Solutions uses select pharmacies to create custom-blended semaglutide medication. This ensures you receive the right medication for you in the right concentrations. 

Semaglutide also sends signals to your brain that signal satiety, which is the sensation of fullness. This helps reduce cravings and makes it more comfortable for you to consume less food without feeling deprived. 

Am I a good candidate for semaglutide?

Many people respond well to this weight loss medication. As always, it is critical to provide a full overview of your personal health history when you begin working with any new practitioner, including the team at Transformed Medical Weight Loss Solutions. 

If any of the following health conditions apply, you may need to explore other weight loss tools:

  • Gallbladder disease
  • Vision problems
  • Pregnancy or breastfeeding
  • Kidney disease
  • History of pancreatitis
  • Prior depression or other mental health issues
  • Stomach or intestine issues
  • Personal or family history of thyroid cancer

The best weight loss program for you is one that aligns with your unique health needs. Be sure to communicate all aspects of your health history with your provider before moving forward with semaglutide or any other medication. 

How long will I need to take semaglutide?

Your practitioner works closely with you to structure a customized weight loss program. If semaglutide is part of that process, your practitioner monitors your progress to see how well your body responds to this form of drug therapy. 

Some people only need semaglutide in the initial stages of their weight loss journey. As you learn how to improve your daily nutrition and change the way you approach food, you may no longer need medication that suppresses your appetite. 

Be sure to communicate openly with your practitioner as you reach your goals and set new ones. This information helps them determine when to alter your weight loss plan, including drug therapy.
