Semaglutide for Weight Loss
What is semaglutide?
Semaglutide is an FDA approved injectable glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist that’s administered once weekly for obesity.
The process is simple! You come in for a consultation, then inject yourself once a week at home. We will do weekly phone or Zoom check ins to follow up on your progress and answer any questions you might have. You will have full access to Hollie, PA-C along the way.
How does it work for weight loss?
GLP-1 is an incretin hormone that plays a role in your appetite and digestion. Incretins — hormones released by your small intestine — are sent out by your body after you’ve eaten a meal to help lower your blood sugar by triggering insulin and blocking other sources of sugar.
It also slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach (called gastric emptying). The result of these actions causes you to feel full — lowering your appetite and causing you to lose weight. Medications like GLP-1 agonists are referred to as incretin mimetics because they “mimic” these effects.
