Semaglutide Injections for Weight Loss in Scottsdale, Arizona
Are you overweight or obese? Semaglutide can provide the weight loss results you want to lead a healthier lifestyle. Besides helping regulate blood sugar levels, this weekly injection helps people lose weight by regulating appetite and slowing gastric emptying. Unlike the countless short-term weight loss medications available on today’s market, Semaglutide offers long-term weight loss management. Take a look at the Semaglutide guide below to see if this advanced weight loss treatment is right for you.
What Is the Semaglutide Injection?
Semaglutide was originally sold under the name Ozempic® and used exclusively to treat type 2 diabetes. The injection now is designed to help patients lose weight. Semaglutide is a subcutaneous injection—meaning it’s injected under the skin—that imitates glucagon (GLP-1). Glucagon is a peptide hormone that makes you feel full after eating. By accelerating the release of this peptide and slowing gastric emptying, the Semaglutide injection makes you feel full longer. When you feel full longer, you tend to eat less frequently, which aids the weight loss process.
Semaglutide also enhances glucose-dependent insulin secretion from the pancreas. Insulin is a hormone that decreases your blood sugar level, which in turn reduces the body’s production of fat. Decreased fat production helps you lose weight faster.
How Does the Semaglutide Injection Work?
We start each patient on a low dose of Semaglutide so the body can acclimate to the medication. Once the body adjusts, we gradually increase the dose until the patient reaches their target weight loss goal.
This treatment is most effective when accompanied by practical and sustainable lifestyle changes. When paired with a healthy diet and exercise regimen, Semaglutide helps overweight and obese adults achieve their desired weight loss results.
