Achieve Your Weight Goals

Have you been having a hard time keeping your weight under control and managing it? You now have a treatment option available to you at Genesis Lifestyle Medicine that can assist you in getting started in the right direction toward achieving your goals thanks to the Wegovy therapies.

What is the Wegovy treatment?

Wegovy, also known by its generic name of semaglutide, has been given approval by the Food and Drug Administration for the treatment of chronic weight control. Wegovy treatments are given subcutaneously by our experienced and trained medical professionals.

Wegovy imitates the glucagon-like peptide-1 also known as GLP-1 hormone, a chemical that affects the parts of the brain that control hunger and food intake. The Genesis Lifestyle Medicine program, a complete weight reduction regimen, includes Wegovy which allows patients to control their weight and promote more weight loss during the treatment.

How does Wegovy work?

Semaglutide, a medicine that raises the body's levels of glucagon-like peptide, is administered intravenously once per week during the patient's treatment. GLP-1 is a vital factor in controlling blood sugar and weight. It aids in appetite suppression through the brain and delays stomach emptying to heighten the feeling of fullness.

A consistent physical exercise routine, nutritional assistance, and good eating practices are necessary for weight loss with Wegovy. The program starts with an initial dietary consultation followed by an initial medication consultation to examine your medical history, talk about your weight reduction objectives, and assess if Wegovy is the right therapy for you. If permitted, you will have continuous medication assistance from your doctor. Your local pharmacy will automatically restock your supply of Wegovy on a monthly basis.

How much weight loss can you experience while using Wegovy?

The Food and Drug Administration granted approval for the medicine after a comprehensive series of trials that included hundreds of people of varying ages who were given a placebo. Participants in one of the most effective studies had a starting average body weight of 231 pounds and a BMI of 38. During the 68-week experiment, those who got Wegovy lost an average of 14.9% of their starting weight, or roughly 33 pounds. Patients who got a placebo lost 2.4% less weight overall.

Having said that, despite the fact that this has been scientifically shown to provide actual and effective outcomes, it is essential to keep in mind that the experience of each individual patient will be unique and that they may reach various stages of weight reduction at varying times.

Your Wegovy results

As soon as you inject a dosage of Wegovy, it begins to work. However, it can take a few weeks or months before you start to lose weight or see a decrease in appetite.

Wegovy candidates

Patients with obesity and excess weight who have a BMI of 30 or higher, or a BMI of 27 or higher with an additional obesity-related health issue, are eligible for Wegovy. Wegovy alone is unlikely to achieve the desired result of weight reduction; it is meant to support a routine of increased physical activity and a low-calorie diet.
