Who is a Candidate for Semaglutide for Weight Loss?
Semaglutide for weight loss is generally used to treat patients who have a BMI over 30 or those with a BMI over 27 and at least one weight-related health condition such as PCOS, hypertension, or type 2 diabetes.
Individuals with a history of gallbladder disease, pancreatitis, medullary thyroid cancer, or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 may not be ideal candidates. Patients should also inform our team if they wish to become pregnant or think they may be pregnant, as losing weight while pregnant is not advised. To learn more about if Semaglutide is right for you, please contact Galiderm Aesthetics & Plastic Surgery today for a consultation appointment.
While some patients may be able to see weight loss after just 4 weeks, most patients will see results after 8-12 weeks of treatment. As time passes, patients may also notice gradual improvements in their overall health conditions such as blood sugar levels. This medication may result in some temporary side effects such as nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, constipation, and heartburn. Please let us know right away if any of these symptoms do not go away or are severe.
What is Semaglutide and How Does it Work?
Semaglutide is an injectable medication used for effective weight loss management. It belongs to a class of medications known as GLP-1 RAs which prompt the body to produce more insulin, reducing blood sugar levels. High levels of GLP-1 also interact with the brain to suppress appetite. When used along with diet and exercise, Semaglutide can result in significant weight loss in those who are obese or overweight.
This medication is injected under the skin once every week. Our team will teach you how to prepare and take this medication for the best results.
