Weight Loss Program | Semaglutide
Our newest weight loss program, featuring Semaglutide injections, is now available at Radiant Skin and Health. For more information about Radiant Skin & Health located in the same building as our Conroe location, please visit their website.
Who is Semaglutide for?
Semaglutide is available only to individuals who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of at least 30kg/m2 and those who have a BMI of 27kg/m2, and who also have conditions such as type-2 diabetes, high cholesterol, or high blood pressure, all conditions that lead to excess weight.
Semaglutide is not a ‘magic bullet’ for weight loss. It is essential that the patient, while using the medicine, also follows a strict diet and exercise regime laid down by a medical professional.
What is Semaglutide and How Can it Help You Lose Weight?
Semaglutide is a medicine that can be used for weight loss and for lowering the blood sugar level in type-2 diabetes patients to reduce the risk of stroke and heart attack. It is what is known as a ‘GLP-1’ agonist. This type of medicine acts by increasing insulin release and delaying the emptying of the stomach, thus reducing appetite.
How Do I Take Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is administered as a once-a-week injection into the body.
The injection can be administered by a medical professional or by the patient. In the latter case, hygiene is a vital element of the procedure.
Will it Help Me Lose Weight?
As with all medicines, supplements, and medical treatments, Semaglutide is not the answer for everyone. We have mentioned above the BMI and other conditions required for patients to be considered for this treatment.
We recommend you talk to us at Radiant Skin & Health to discover if you will be suitable for the program.
They will want to know about your medical history and lifestyle habits and request that you stop smoking or using recreational drugs and cut out alcohol. You will be considered only if you agree to the program and its dietary and exercise requirements.
Persons with a family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma should not use Semaglutide, along with those with tumors in the glands.
You should also inform the medical professional if you have stomach disorders, pancreatitis, or kidney disease, as these may preclude you from entering the program.
Your first step should be a consultation with a medical expert familiar with using Semaglutide for weight loss, and they will explain what you should expect should you be deemed suitable for this lie of treatment.
Semaglutide injections can help with weight loss when part of a planned and strictly observed dietary and exercise regime.
Anyone considering this treatment method should consult a medical professional with experience and expertise in using Semaglutide for weight loss.
