Orlando’s Weight Management Challenge
Central Florida faces a growing obesity problem with nearly 30% of adults classified as obese. Obesity poses health risks, including diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers, affecting both physical and mental well-being.
The impact of obesity goes beyond health and physical appearance. Additionally, obesity can take a toll on individuals’ mental health and overall quality of life. Addressing obesity requires a multifaceted approach that includes lifestyle modifications, dietary changes, and, in some cases, medical interventions. Semaglutide offers a promising avenue for individuals who have struggled to achieve and maintain a healthy weight.
How Semaglutide Works as A Weight Loss Tool
Semaglutide, operating as a Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), closely mirrors the actions of the natural GLP-1 hormone, crucial for regulating blood sugar levels. By amplifying insulin production (lowering blood sugar) and repressing glucagon secretion (raising blood sugar), semaglutide also curbs appetite and slows stomach emptying, leading to reduced food intake and supporting weight loss. Appetite and glucose regulation reduce hunger and promoting fullness, addressing the root causes of weight gain and its associated health risks.
Initially developed in 2012 by Novo Nordisk, it started as an extended-duration alternative to Liraglutide. Semaglutide later gained approval in 2017 for managing type 2 diabetes due to its effectiveness in insulin and glucagon control. Following extensive research, the FDA granted approval in June 2021 for semaglutide as a solution for chronic weight management. This approval encompasses adults with a BMI of 30 or greater and adults with a BMI of 27 or greater who have at least one weight-related condition, such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
Effective Treatment Options
Clinical trials demonstrate semaglutide’s remarkable weight loss effects. Over 68 weeks, users shed an average of 14.9% of their body weight, compared to a 2.4% loss in the placebo group. Trials also reveal improved metabolic parameters, like waist circumference, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.
Understanding Side Effects
Semaglutide may have mild gastrointestinal side effects that can be unpleasant, but medical supervision allows these issues to be managed. Consultation with our healthcare providers is essential, especially if you have any existing medical conditions.
Dosage & Administration
Comprehensive & Holistic Weight Management
Ozempic, containing semaglutide (a GLP-1), may be prescribed for weight loss if deemed suitable. Administered as a once-weekly injection, it replicates the action of your body’s natural hormones, promoting a sense of increased fullness quickly and for an extended duration. Semaglutide should be part of a broader weight management strategy, incorporating diet, exercise, and behavior changes. Collaborating with the team of healthcare professionals at Vitality Medical Aesthetics will enhance your chances of long-term success addressing lifestyle changes.
