Semaglutide Weight Loss Therapy

Semaglutide Weight Loss Therapy In Austin

Sustainable weight loss can be challenging. For some people, diet plans and exercise are not enough to achieve and maintain their desired weight.

If you are struggling with weight loss or you find yourself frustrated with being unable to maintain your goal weight –  semaglutide therapy may be the answer.

With our semaglutide weight loss program, you may be able to lose weight with ease.

 

How Does Semaglutide Weight Loss Therapy Work?

The human body is designed to function like a well-oiled machine, producing necessary hormones that regulate everything from sleeping and eating to more complex aspects like emotions and mood, among many others. After every meal, a hormone called “glucagon-like peptide-1” (or GLP-1) is secreted from the small intestine into the bloodstream, sending signals to the brain that hunger has been satiated and the biological need for sustenance has been fulfilled.

During this process, GLP-1 helps regulate blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin production, keeping the appetite at bay as food is digested and used for energy until it requires more.

This naturally occurring hormonal process responsible for appetite and glycemic control doesn’t always function properly for everyone.

Despite their best efforts, many people succumb to busy and stressful lifestyles, which can throw appetite-regulating hormones out of whack, making attempts at exercise and diet regimens futile.

Those who struggle with shedding pounds and overeating are often clinically overweight or obese, diagnosed with type 2 diabetes, and a long list of illnesses that can quickly lead to life-threatening outcomes.

Through modern science, experts have successfully isolated GLP-1 to develop semaglutide, an FDA-approved treatment to help hormonal regulation for chronic weight management in adults with one or more comorbidities related to obesity or being overweight. This unprecedented therapy includes a weekly injection or oral dose of semaglutide along with a reduced-calorie diet and regular physical activity, enhancing patients’ chances of success in bettering their overall health.

Semaglutide therapy brings many benefits that can increase a patient’s quality of life, including weight loss without implementing fad diets, constant deprivation, or bariatric surgery.

With the ability to lower leptin hormone levels in the body, patients taking semaglutide therapy often experience diminished cravings and hunger levels between meals and report feeling fuller, faster upon eating with a boost in energy.

Improved sleeping patterns are a bonus that comes with the weight loss reached using semaglutide therapy.

Many people with weight dysregulation tend to suffer from conditions like sleep apnea, which disrupts a restorative night of rest due to snoring and can lead to heart disease and other illnesses commonly linked to premature death.

It’s no coincidence that the hormones controlling sleep and hunger are closely related and work together but can quickly be at odds when the body isn’t functioning correctly.

Trials conducted on the effectiveness of semaglutide therapy show promising evidence for those who feel they’re at their wit’s end with weight loss. Trial results indicate that overweight or obese adults receiving weekly doses of semaglutide had a mean weight loss of nearly 15% in 68 weeks.

 

The same study boasts approximately 70% of participants achieving weight loss accounting for 10% of their initial body weight, while 32% lost at least 20% of their initial numbers on the scale.

 

How Fast Does Semaglutide Therapy Work?

The effects of semaglutide can be felt as soon as you take a dose, and weight loss should begin during the first two weeks of your program.

Everybody’s weight loss journey is unique, and the length of your program will depend on how much weight you need to lose. The greatest amount of weight loss occurs once you reach your goal dose.

It’s crucial to remember that weight loss can take time, and you’ll have the best outcomes if you combine your medicine with a balanced diet and regular exercise.
