What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide offers an exciting solution to those battling with weight issues by enhancing natural physiological processes. Acting as a receptor for glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), Semaglutide plays a role in regulating glucose levels and curbing appetite. By activating GLP-1 enzymes, it stimulates insulin release from the pancreas following meals, which helps to reduce blood sugar levels. In addition, this treatment promotes a sense of fullness by elevating satiety hormones while simultaneously reducing the hunger-inducing hormone ghrelin. This comprehensive process enables Semaglutide to improve metabolic control and facilitate weight loss of up to 20 percent of total body weight.

What can Semaglutide do for me?

As a non-surgical weight loss method, Semaglutide offers several advantages over surgical procedures, including no downtime and no serious surgical or anesthesia-related risks. This medication is an excellent option for individuals seeking to lose weight, enhance their appearance, and improve their overall health. With Semaglutide North Shore patients see numerous benefits, including:

  • Lower body fat percentage
  • Decreased risk of obesity-related diseases
  • Alleviation of joint pain caused by excess weight

Semaglutide FAQs

Yes, Semaglutide is proven effective, and in clinical trials, patients lost up to 15 to 20 percent of their body weight after a year of treatment.

Semaglutide is a safe, low-risk treatment with minimal side effects.

While Semaglutide is safe for long-term use, once patients have reached their weight loss goals, it is best to stop using the drug and maintain weight loss with healthy eating and exercise.

There have been many supplements available over the years that claim to promote weight loss, and some of them are effective in certain cases. However, many of these supplements are unregulated and, with or without a doctor’s supervision, can be very dangerous.

The cost of Semaglutide depends on the dose needed to stimulate weight loss and will vary depending on the patient’s need. The cost of this medication is not typically covered by insurance when it is exclusively used for weight loss.
