What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide belongs to the class of medications known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists, which imitates the naturally occurring hormone GLP-1 in the body. This groundbreaking medication offers a solution for weight loss by stimulating glucose-dependent insulin secretion, which helps regulate blood sugar levels. It also slows down the release of sugar into the bloodstream, leading to increased fat burning. In addition, it delays stomach emptying, promoting a prolonged feeling of fullness and limiting calorie intake.

Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the high effectiveness of weekly Semaglutide injectables like Ozempic and Wegovy for promoting weight loss. In one study, individuals receiving this treatment experienced an average weight reduction of up to 13 percent over one year without making any changes to their eating or exercise routines. Our Semaglutide is premixed with cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12) which also can help give that energy boost we all need. Vitamin B12 is a valuable water-soluble vitamin that plays a large role in red cell formation, cell metabolism, and nerve function. Vitamin B12 is known for its energy-boosting properties and metabolism enhancement.

Am I a candidate for Semaglutide?

The best way to determine if you are a candidate for weight loss with Semaglutide is to come to see us for a consultation with Lauren R.N. We do ask for a consultation fee to reserve your appointment date. This is for Dr Russo's or our providers time/recommendations with you or you can apply it towards your treatment. There is a 48 hour cancellation policy. She will review your medical history, order lab work, discuss your goals, and help you decide if Semaglutide is a great option for you. She is thrilled to help both women and men who are seeking a solution for weight loss.

Your Medical Weight Loss Journey

Semaglutide is so effective because it is a potent medication. This is why it is so important to work closely with an experienced medical professional to ensure your safety and ongoing health. You will receive once-weekly injections, and our nursing team will take vitals, monitor any side effects you are experiencing, and adjust the dosage if necessary. At the start of treatment, a very small amount of the treatment will be administered to see how your body reacts. Then, the dosage will be gradually increased to a higher level. While Semaglutide injectables like Ozempic and Wegovy are incredibly effective for promoting weight loss, they will not prevent you from regaining weight. Following injections with Semaglutide Boston patients are encouraged to stay committed to healthy eating and a sustainable level of physical activity to maintain your results long-term.

Semaglutide FAQ

Yes, clinical studies have shown that Semaglutide is effective for weight loss. About half of the trial participants lost 15 percent of body weight, and almost one-third lost 20 percent.

When used under the supervision of a qualified medical professional, this is a safe and effective treatment.

While this treatment can help you lose weight permanently, in order to maintain this weight loss, it’s important to stay active and continue with a healthy diet.

Some Boston Semaglutide patients have had success with certain OTC weight loss supplements. However, without doctor supervision and since these supplements are not FDA-regulated, they can be extremely dangerous.

The cost of Semaglutide will depend on each patient’s particular treatment plan, how much of the medication will be used, and for what length of time.
