At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine in Derby, KS, we offer Semaglutide for effective weight loss. Semaglutide is an FDA-approved treatment that helps manage excess weight and type 2 diabetes, promoting significant weight reduction and improved overall health.

Curb hunger pangs and lose weight (sustainably)

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved medication designed to aid in weight loss by mimicking a hormone that targets areas of the brain responsible for appetite control. By curbing hunger pangs and reducing cravings, Semaglutide helps you eat less and feel fuller longer. This leads to sustainable weight loss, making it easier to stick to a healthier lifestyle. At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine in Derby, KS, we provide Semaglutide as part of our weight loss programs, ensuring you achieve your weight loss goals effectively and safely.

Semaglutide helps with:

  • Reducing appetite and controlling hunger pangs
  • Promoting significant and sustainable weight loss
  • Improving blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes
  • Enhancing overall metabolic health
  • Decreasing the risk of weight-related health issues
  • Supporting long-term weight management
  • Increasing feelings of fullness and satisfaction after meals

How does Semaglutide work?

Semaglutide promotes weight loss by mimicking the action of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a hormone that plays a crucial role in regulating appetite and food intake. By binding to GLP-1 receptors in the brain, Semaglutide enhances the feeling of fullness, reduces hunger, and slows gastric emptying. This means you feel satisfied with smaller portions and experience fewer cravings, leading to a natural reduction in calorie intake. Over time, you can expect a significant reduction in excess weight and maintain a healthier lifestyle.

How do I inject Semaglutide?

Injecting Semaglutide is simple and convenient. First, clean the injection site, typically your abdomen, thigh, or upper arm, with an alcohol swab. Then, attach the needle to the pre-filled pen and set the prescribed dose. Pinch the skin at the injection site and insert the needle at a 90-degree angle. Press the button on the pen to release the medication and hold for a few seconds. For best results, follow the instructions provided by your healthcare provider.

What are the side effects of Semaglutide?

While Semaglutide is effective for weight loss, you might experience some side effects. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. These symptoms usually subside as your body adjusts to the medication. Rarely, more severe side effects like pancreatitis or gallbladder issues can occur. Always follow your provider's instructions and report any unusual or persistent symptoms to ensure your treatment is safe and effective.
