What is Semaglutide and how does it work?
At our Kearny Mesa and Solana beach locations in San Diego, we off offer Semaglutide which is known to support weight loss.
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide agonist (GLP-1) medication that works along with proper diet and exercise to assist patients reach their weight loss goals.
Semaglutide works by:
- Causing a sensation of fullness and decreased hunger by delaying gastric emptying.
- Reducing the production of sugar in the liver, which helps to lower your blood sugar levels.
- Suppressing your cravings for sweets and carbohydrates.
We care about you and your safety. So this program is not a cookie-cutter weight loss mill. Patients who are interested receive a free screening with one of our providers to see if they are a candidate. Then we will draw labs and have a consultation to discuss your goals, nutrition, and activity levels. We will work with you to customize a plan suited to YOUR needs. Once your labs are cleared, we order your Semaglutide and will have you come in weekly for your injections and to monitor how you are doing. We will monitor your weight and recheck your labs every 3 months.
As a bonus and to help ensure your success our Semaglutide program includes a free MIC shot.
We also partnered with a local PT office that will offer FREE nutritional consultation and a 2-week small group exercise program to help you lose weight for the long term and not as a quick fix.
