What Is Semaglutide (Ozempic & Wegovy)?
Ozempic hit the market in 2018 for diabetes treatment; the noted side effect was weight loss. In 2021, the FDA approved Semaglutide, Ozempic & Wegovy as anti-obesity medications.
Semaglutide is a selective glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. Acting on the same receptor as the endogenous hormone incretins (incretins are a group of metabolic hormones that stimulate a decrease in blood glucose levels), semaglutide increases glucose-dependent insulin secretion decreases inappropriate glucagon secretion, and slows gastric emptying.
What Other Therapies Can Assist With Losing Weight?
Semaglutide (Ozempic & Wegovy) are not effective alone. Most people require a healthy balance of diet, exercise, and other therapies to lose weight. At the Lone Star Center, we approach our clients' health holistically. For patients who may have unbalanced hormones causing weight gain, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can be integrated into their regimen. Likewise, IV therapy and B-12 injections can help increase energy, provide nutrients, and facilitate weight loss.
Other treatments include:
Injectible nutrients may help improve liver function and increase your metabolism.
How Does Semaglutide (Ozempic & Wegovy) Contribute to Weight Loss?
Semaglutide, the active ingredient, induces a feeling of satiety.
GLP-1 is relevant to appetite and weight maintenance because it has actions on the gastrointestinal tract and directly regulating appetite. It delays gastric emptying and gut motility in humans.
A complex brain-gut relationship orchestrates the role of GLP-1 in the modulation of appetite and weight. When taking Semaglutide, your appetite becomes suppressed, allowing you to eat less while still feeling satisfied.
"Some of my favorite people! I have been a client for short time and have already experienced amazing changes. I was feeling lethargic, not sleeping well, couldn't focus along with a few other symptoms. After my initial consult, we laid out a plan and now a month later, I feel more like myself. Brenda and Tre actually listen. They understand and are so knowledgeable along with a great patient follow-up. I highly recommend LSC."
