Semaglutide is dispensed by our contracted pharmacy. If our office is selected as the final delivery destination, Semaglutide will arrive within 4-5 business days. If home delivery is selected, Semaglutide will arrive within 7-10 business days.
It typically takes about two weeks for Semaglutide to start working in the body. While taking Semaglutide, some people begin to see results within the first eight weeks, but most begin to see results within 12 weeks.
Clinical trials have shown that study participants taking a weekly dose of Semaglutide had an average reduction in body weight of 5-10 percent. This means that if you take Semaglutide for a year or more, you may experience up to 15 percent total weight loss.
A medical study of 1961 participants demonstrated that in a 68-week period, participants lost an average body weight of approximately 15%. Furthermore, 1 out of 3 participants lost more than 20% of their body weight.
As part of a good weight reduction program and to prevent you from regaining the lost weight you will need to make changes to your day-to-day lifestyle. This includes modifying what you eat.
A good food program creates a healthy, sustainable way of eating that promotes weight loss and sets you up for long-term health. A good program does this by focusing on the quality of foods and making sure your body is getting the building blocks it needs while helping you to feel in-control.
Importantly, this food program is not a diet: We do not use meal replacements or meal plans. We don’t try to restrict your eating. Instead, we will help you rebalance your mindset into a new eating lifestyle.
The potential risk is of thyroid cancer which is already clearly identified in the drug insert.
Semaglutide is part of a class of medications called GLP-1 receptor agonists, or glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists. It increases insulin secretion, which is good for diabetes. But at higher doses, it acts on centers in the brain and suppresses appetite. It is important to use this medication in conjunction with lifestyle intervention. What this medicine does is help patients adhere to a reduced-calorie diet. With obesity, you always need lifestyle changes plus the medicine.”
A safety signal does not necessarily imply a direct causal relationship between a medicine and the reported adverse event.
An assessment is to be initiated to further investigate whether there exists an indication of cause (a link) exists between the medication and the reported adverse event.
Semaglutide, and other drugs in the same category (glucagon-like peptide GLP-1 receptor antagonists), have been available in the market for over a decade. This is according to Andersen-Lange, Novo Nordisk’s products.
Additionally, the safety data gathered from clinical trials and post marketing surveillance have not shown any conclusive evidence linking them to thyroid cancer.
In order to minimize the strong feelings of hunger, our program includes a reverse titration schedule as well. This will help reduce the feelings of hunger and allow time to modify your diet for optimal satiation.
