Weight Loss with Semaglutide
SEMAGLUTIDE FOR WEIGHT LOSS
SCIENCE MEETS ASSURANCE
PROGRAM WITH A REAL PROMISE
Dr. Scott Brandt of ThriveMD supervises a weight loss treatment that utilizes Semaglutide which safely mimics naturally occurring hormones in the body to curb cravings, reduce appetite, and leads to a drastic reduction in weight.
“Semaglutide decreases appetite by mimicking naturally occurring hormones that make your brain feel full, empowering patients to stick to a diet or nutritional plan without fail.”
Losing weight can be difficult, particularly for those who have a difficult time sticking to a healthy diet. Semaglutide mimics the naturally occurring hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that is secreted in the gut and targets multiple receptors throughout the body related to appetite, particularly in the brain. This reduces appetite as it makes you feel fuller sooner, leading to an increase in weight loss. Patients can shed up to 15-20% of body weight on average.
“This treatment is a safe and effective diet aid that allows patients to eat drastically less food without uncontrollable cravings, irritability, and exhaustion.”
Science Meets Assurance
Approved by the FDA in June 2021 for the treatment of obesity, Semaglutide has been used to treat diabetes since 2017. This treatment is a safe and effective diet aid that allows patients to eat drastically less food without uncontrollable cravings, irritability and exhaustion. After receiving these treatments, patients can carry on with normal life – there is no particular diet or exercise regimen that one is required to follow to maintain weight loss.
Semaglutide decreases appetite by mimicking naturally occurring hormones that make your brain feel full, empowering patients to stick to a diet or nutritional plan without fail. Many patients report losing up to 20% of their body weight within months of beginning this treatment. Semaglutide lowers weight, waist size, blood pressure, blood sugar, and inflammation, making it an all-around safe and beneficial addition to your health wellness routine.
A Program With A Real Promise
The most effective way to administer Semaglutide as a treatment for weight loss is by once weekly subcutaneous (under the skin) injections which are simple to perform and virtually painless. This is a painless, non-invasive alternative to weight loss surgery that allows patients to resume their normal lives during and after treatment.
These injections can be administered in our clinic, or can be self-administered at home with the guidance of a medical professional. Injections start at a low dose, and dosage is increased throughout the duration until weight goals have been achieved.
Semaglutide injections must be prescribed by a doctor. The side effects of this treatment are minimal, with the most common side effect reported being slight nausea in some patients after receiving the injection.
