Benefits of Semaglutide

Semaglutide was initially designed for the treatment of Type 2 Diabetes, but later received FDA approval for weight loss and has since gained a lot of popularity.

It works by mimicking the action of a naturally occurring hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). This hormone is produced in the gut and helps to regulate satiety and the absorption of food.

Patients taking Semaglutide for weight loss can expect to see the following benefits:

  • Decreased appetite
  • Increased feelings of fullness (helps with portion control)
  • Reduced food cravings
  • Improved glucose levels (reduces insulin resistance, a leading cause for stubborn fat)
  • Decreased body fat
  • Reduced risk for certain health conditions such as high blood pressure and high cholesterol

Semaglutide vs Wegovy/Ozempic

Wegovy and Ozempic are brand names of Semaglutide but can cost up to $1700 per month.

They are all the same medication, with the same dosing schedule and benefits. We have partnered with a specialty compounding pharmacy that makes Semaglutide and ships it directly to you at a fraction of the cost.

It is made in a certified sterile compounding facility and delivered right to your doorstep. No more monthly trips to the pharmacy or waiting in line for your refills.

Plus, it comes in a multi-dose vial which allows for easier dose adjustments as needed and as directed by your provider.

Semaglutide Weight Loss Program

As part of our Weight Loss Program here at Inspire Health Clinics, your weight loss journey will begin with a comprehensive weight loss consultation with one of our providers specializing in medical weight loss.

Routine blood work, health screenings and a full medical history review will be evaluated prior to initiating any weight loss treatment program.

Your provider will create a customized treatment plan based upon your specific needs and goals that includes a Semaglutide dosing schedule, an injection demonstration, a list of recommended supplements specific to your needs, a nutrition guide, and access to a once-weekly personal trainer.

While no specific diet or nutrition plan is required while taking Semaglutide, we do recommend combining medication with a nutrition and exercise program.

Focusing on creating and maintaining healthy lifestyle habits during and after weight loss treatment is essential for long-term weight management.

Our providers will monitor your progress each month to ensure safety and efficacy, along with making adjustments to your treatment plan and/or dosing schedule as needed.

We are committed to helping you reach your ultimate weight loss goals.

Semaglutide Side Effects

Frequently Asked Questions

How often will I need to take it and how long will I be on Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a once-weekly injection with dose increases every 4 weeks. Length of treatment will depend on individual needs and weight loss goals, but 6-9 months is average.

Will I gain all the weight back once I stop the medication?

Once your goal weight is obtained, we recommend staying on a lower maintenance dose for a few months. This is a great time to work on solidifying those long-term healthy habits.

Can anyone take Semaglutide?

You should not take Semaglutide if you have Type 1 Diabetes, a history of diabetic ketoacidosis, family history of thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia, kidney problems, a history of pancreatitis, are pregnant, planning on becoming pregnant or are nursing.

What if I’m scared of needles?

During your initial appointment, we will demonstrate and teach you how to administer your injections. We can even teach a friend or significant other how to as well. You may also choose to have your weekly injection administered by one of our medically trained staff members in clinic.

This medication has reset my entire body chemistry and metabolism. It has curbed ALL of my bad cravings and as a result I am down almost 20 pounds since January. I am no longer in the risky category for Type 2 diabetes. My blood pressure is down! Sleep apnea is gone! Joint pain is gone and I even did a 8 mile hike last weekend. I am so grateful for Heather and for the staff at Inspire Health Clinics for leading me in the right direction! I can’t wait to see what’s next!

MarissaAge 34

I have been exhausted, overweight, and hungry for the last 20 years. I’ve been depressed and experienced mood-swings to go along with the constant blood sugar struggles. Since starting Semaglutide, I don’t want sugar or refined carbs and I am eating intuitively for the first time ever! My husband said my mood has improved, and I seem happy again. I am no longer tired at 2pm every day, I finally have enough energy to make it through a whole day without a nap or more coffee.

After having my second baby, I really struggled with body image issues. As much as I tried to embrace my body that gave me two beautiful and amazing children, I really just felt uncomfortable in my own skin. I had gained weight during fertility treatments and felt overwhelmed with how much extra weight I was carrying. I didn't have a specific weight loss goal in mind, I just wanted to feel better, have more energy, and keep up with my kids.
Since being on Semaglutide I have lost 30 pounds and have been able to keep that off for several months. I have more energy, better mood, my hormones have evened out and I feel like myself again. Semaglutide has been a game changer for me.
