Semaglutide, offered at Genesis Lifestyle Medicine in Lindale, TX, is a groundbreaking treatment for weight loss. This medication helps manage obesity by reducing appetite and increasing feelings of fullness, leading to significant and sustainable weight loss.

Reduce hunger & lose weight sustainably

Semaglutide is a medication initially developed to manage type 2 diabetes but has shown significant effectiveness in promoting weight loss. It works by mimicking a hormone that targets areas of the brain involved in regulating appetite and food intake. This results in reduced hunger and increased feelings of fullness, helping individuals achieve and maintain weight loss. At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine in Lindale, TX, we offer telehealth consultations to prescribe Semaglutide as a part of a comprehensive weight management program.

  • Long-term weight management

How does Semaglutide promote weight loss?

Semaglutide promotes weight loss by mimicking the effects of the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) hormone. GLP-1 is naturally produced in the intestines and plays a crucial role in regulating appetite. When Semaglutide is administered, it binds to GLP-1 receptors in the brain, which helps to reduce hunger and increase satiety. This hormonal interaction signals the brain to feel full, even with smaller meals, thereby decreasing overall calorie consumption.

Additionally, Semaglutide slows gastric emptying, meaning food stays in the stomach longer, enhancing the feeling of fullness and further reducing the urge to eat. This dual action—appetite suppression and delayed gastric emptying—creates a powerful mechanism for weight loss. Clinical studies have shown that patients using Semaglutide experience significant and sustained reductions in body weight, making it an effective option for weight management.

How do I self-administer Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is administered via a simple, once-weekly injection. You can self-inject it under the skin using a pre-filled pen, making it convenient and easy to integrate into your routine. The injections are typically given in the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm. At Genesis Lifestyle Medicine in Lindale, TX, our team provides comprehensive guidance on how to administer Semaglutide properly, ensuring you feel confident and comfortable with the process.
