At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine we are proud to offer semaglutide in Henderson. Semaglutide is a cutting-edge, FDA-approved medication that supports chronic weight management in adults with obesity or those with weight-related conditions and health risks. Semaglutide is a GLP-1 receptor agonist that’s similar to incretin, a naturally-occurring hormone that controls your appetite. As such, the semaglutide medication can control your appetite and prevent hunger pangs, thus supporting your weight loss goals.
Semaglutide is a one-of-a-kind drug only meant for individuals who are overweight or obese, i.e., those with a BMI of 27 or more and a weight-related condition, such as diabetes, or those with a BMI of 30 or more. Please note that this medication isn’t an alternative to exercise and a healthy diet — it can only support other weight loss efforts, such as exercise, a low-calorie diet, and behavior changes.
