Let’s Get You Started

SEMAGLUTIDE IS A GLP-1 (GLUCAGON-LIKE-PEPTIDE-1), A RECEPTOR AGONIST

This means that it mimics the hormone GLP-1, which regulates hunger and food intake. Additionally, when Semaglutide is taken on a weekly basis, it suppresses the hormone glucagon to prevent feelings of hunger. Additionally, it delays gastric emptying, therefore making you feel more satisfied longer after a meal.

SEMAGLUTIDE INJECTIONS COMBINED WITH EXERCISE RESULTED IN A MEAN DECREASE IN BODY WEIGHT

A recent study of 1,961 people found that in people with a BMI over 30 and who did not have diabetes, Semaglutide injections combined with exercise resulted in a mean decrease in body weight of 14.9% over 68 weeks. The placebo group saw only a 2.4% mean decrease in weight.

SEMAGLUTIDE PROVIDED EVEN MORE SIGNIFICANT WEIGHT LOSS

A second study found that when combined with behavioral therapy and incorporating a low-calorie diet into meal plans, Semaglutide provided even more significant weight loss.

Semaglutide is often prescribed to men and women who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher, or individuals with a BMI of 27 or higher that is accompanied by high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, or other health conditions that can make weight loss difficult.

Questions & Answers

Semaglutide injections offer many benefits to qualified candidates, including:

  • Significantly reducing weight when combined with changes in diet and exercise
  • Providing consistent, safe weight loss over an extended period of time
  • Diminished risk of heart and cardiovascular disease upon achieving a healthy weight
  • Helping you to look and feel healthier
  • Requiring only one injection per week

It often is not until 4 or more weeks on a dose of 0.5 mg that patients will start to see a decline in weight. It’s possible that some individuals might not notice weight loss until close to 6 weeks.

Studies have shown that Semaglutide is most effective when combined with exercise and changes in diet. Therefore, the exact amount of time someone might need to receive this treatment will depend on current health conditions (if any) and if exercise and dietary changes can be adopted permanently to maintain an ideal weight.

If you are someone who has excess weight and/or is obese without any significant health complications, you might be a candidate for Semaglutide injections.

Potential side effects can include headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, dizziness, changes in mood, constipation or diarrhea, heartburn, and bloating. While rare, more severe side effects can include pancreatitis, allergic reactions, kidney damage, gallstones, and others.

Your medical specialist at ThrIVe Hydration  will thoroughly discuss the potential side effects with you and answer any questions you might have regarding the injections.
