  • How does Semaglutide work?

    Semaglutide operates by mimicking the function of the hormone GLP-1, which plays a pivotal role in regulating appetite and interacting with the brain's appetite control center. By emulating GLP-1's actions, Semaglutide effectively suppresses appetite and boosts insulin production, while concurrently inhibiting the secretion of glucagon—a hormone responsible for elevating blood sugar levels. This dual mechanism fosters a decrease in blood glucose levels and a reduction in appetite, making Semaglutide a potent ally in weight management when complemented by a balanced diet and regular exercise regimen.

  • Am I a good candidate for semaglutide?

    Semaglutide may not be advisable if you have any of the following:● Pregnant or breastfeeding.● Type I Diabetes - Medullary Thyroid Cancer.● Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Type 2.● Gallbladder Disease: Any condition affecting the gallbladder, including inflammation or gallstones.● Acute Pancreatitis.● Reduced Kidney Function.● Family History of Medullary Thyroid Carcinoma.● Kidney Disease with Likely Reduction in Kidney Function: Any kidney disease that is anticipated to lead to decreased kidney function.● Diabetic Retinopathy: A condition characterized by eye damage resulting from diabetes.● Hypoglycemia (Low Blood Sugar): A condition where blood sugar levels drop below normal ranges.

  • What are the side effects?

    Common side effects of Semaglutide include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, headache, dizziness, fatigue, and low blood sugar levels. These side effects are usually mild and temporary, resolving within a few days or weeks of starting treatment.
