Injections of semaglutide in Colts Neck, NJ, give overweight and obese patients an effective weight-loss solution. This revolutionary treatment helps patients feel full, preventing overeating. Studies have shown that people have lost 10% to 20% of their body weight in a 75-day period.
Semaglutide is a clinically proven weight-reduction option and was FDA-approved in 2021 for weight management. It has been available in other forms since 2017 (when lower-dose injection Ozempic™ was approved).
How It Works
Semaglutide is a once-weekly injectable glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) RA—a class of medicines known as glucagon-like peptide receptor agonists.
Semaglutide, produces similar effects to incretin, a hormone: A type of hormone released naturally by your body when you eat food. This hormone sends signals to the brain, muscles, stomach, liver, and pancreas whenever nutrients are taken in.
When semaglutide signals the brain, endocrine, and gastrointestinal system, this results in a complex cascade of hormones and neurotransmitters. This communicates a feeling of fullness. It also decreases gastric emptying, which helps you feel fuller faster.
Ideal Candidates for Semaglutide
Looking for an effective weight-loss option after finding no success with dieting and exercise? If so, semaglutide may be right for you! If you want to avoid bariatric surgery, this state-of-the-art non-surgical treatment is ideal.
Patients need to have at least a BMI of 27 to qualify for semaglutide. To determine eligibility, we require a baseline of certain blood tests within the last six months, along with a medical screening by our clinicians.
Patients who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or trying to get pregnant are not ideal candidates. Patients on insulin and certain diabetic medications may not qualify. If you have a family history of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type 2 (MEN2) or renal, liver, or pancreatic disease, you are not eligible for the program.
Patients with endocrine tumors in the thyroid, parathyroid, pituitary, pancreas, or adrenal glands are not good candidates for this treatment. If you have diabetes-related eye disease or vision problems, active gallbladder disease, kidney disease, stomach problems, or thyroid cancer (or if someone in your family had thyroid cancer), semaglutide may not be right for you.
An initial consultation is required to discuss eligibility for the program. During this consultation, we will discuss your lifestyle and health habits, along with your weight-loss goals.
A physical examination will be performed. Your medical history will be reviewed, including pre-existing conditions and current medications. Lab work and diagnostic tests will be requested to determine risk factors and cause of obesity.
Our weight-loss program will be discussed with you in detail so you can make an informed decision. If you have any questions, we will be happy to answer.
Our Semaglutide Weight-Loss Program
Once the program begins, you will be required to come in for a weekly office visit for your semaglutide injection and B12/MIC “slim” injections. Semaglutide is injected into the skin of the upper arm, thigh, or stomach. It must be administered the same day each week.
There’s no downtime or recovery time needed after injecting semaglutide. There may be temporary minor swelling, redness, or itchiness at the injection site, but these will fade shortly.
We start you at a dose of 0.25mg of semaglutide, and every two weeks, your dose may increase depending on side effects and tolerability. We recommend that you develop and maintain healthy eating and lifestyle habits, including exercise, during your time on our program.
Any side effects of the treatment may lessen as you continue to use semaglutide. Potential side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, stomach (abdomen) pain, headache, tiredness (fatigue), upset stomach, dizziness, bloating, belching, gas, stomach flu, and heartburn.
