Big News!

We're excited to announce the offering of Semaglutide injections, a clinically proven treatment to help patients achieve significant weight loss when combined with a low-sugar diet and minimal daily exercise.

What is Ozempic (Semaglutide)?

Ozempic®, also known as Semaglutide, is a glucagon-like peptide-1

(GLP-1) receptor agonist. Initially approved by the FDA for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, it has also been shown to be effective in promoting weight loss. It works by mimicking the actions of hormones involved in appetite regulation and insulin production, helping to reduce hunger and promote weight loss without severe side effects.

How Ozempic (Semaglutide) Works:

Ozempic® works by mimicking the hormone GLP-1, which regulates blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin secretion and inhibiting glucagon release. It also slows gastric emptying, which helps reduce appetite and food intake, contributing to better blood sugar control. For weight loss, it suppresses appetite and induces satiety, influencing various pathways that regulate appetite, food intake, and metabolism.

Patients can expect to see a significant reduction in body weight, body fat, & waist circumference over a 16-week period when combined with lifestyle changes such as a low-sugar diet, daily exercise, and intermittent fasting.
