Weight Management Semaglutide Injections in Akron, OH
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a new FDA APPROVED weight loss medication that works by suppressing your appetite. It is a once-weekly injection for weight management.
How Does Semaglutide Work?
Semaglutide blocks Ghrelin which is famously known as the “Hunger Hormone” and specifically targets “visceral fat”.
Who is it for?
Semaglutide mimics the effect of “feeling full” resulting in a decreased caloric intake. Semaglutide will delay gastric emptying by reducing the eptide hormone secretion. The delaying in gastric emptying can reduce appetite, improve control of eating and reduce food cravings.
Semaglutide is contraindicated in patients with a personal history of thyroid cancer or in patients with multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2.
How Much Weight Can I Lose?
Average weight loss is 1-2 pounds per week, which is about 8lbs per month. Higher weight loss can be achieved with diet and exercise, lower weight loss may result with no diet and no exercise.
