At Prime Men’s Health, we provide effective weight loss programs that include current medical therapies. Our goal is to help you lose weight safely and effectively. We understand that achieving and maintaining weight loss goals can be challenging, especially for adults with slow metabolisms.
Many overweight adults have difficulties processing carbs and fats due to their body’s metabolic processes. If you have a low metabolism, you may struggle to burn fats and sugars, leading to weight gain. Without addressing your body’s physiology, certain weight loss programs may not deliver results.
Once we identify the physical issues preventing you from achieving a healthy weight, we will customize a medical weight loss program to address those obstacles and help you reach your goals.
How the Weight Loss Program Works:
After your initial visit, a specialist at Prime Men’s Health will determine the most suitable weight loss medication treatment to help you control overeating and rapid weight gain. We offer effective weight-loss medications, including Semaglutide. This medication can modify your body’s digestion process, making you feel fuller for longer and eat less. They can also help regulate blood sugar levels and facilitate burning unwanted fat.
Prime Men’s Health utilizes hormones as part of our hormone replacement clinic and weight loss center. This cutting-edge approach helps improve your body’s ability to lose weight also. With our top-quality weight loss medication and a dedicated exercise routine, our medical professionals can help you achieve significant clinical weight loss and body composition changes.
What Is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a naturally occurring hormone known as a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1). It signals the brain to regulate appetite and food digestion in humans. By administering Semaglutide injections, the peptide enters the body through the circulatory system, helping adults with chronic weight struggles decrease their appetite and feel fuller after meals.
Although recently becoming popular – Semaglutide treatment has been available for almost a decade. Initially released to assist with weight management, lower doses were later approved to control blood sugar in type 2 diabetics as the prescription brand Ozempic.
People with diabetes using Ozempic also noticed weight loss as a beneficial side effect. Over the years, patients dealing with obesity have made significant progress with semaglutide for weight loss. Currently, semaglutide is considered one of the most effective weight loss medications in endocrinology.
How Does Semaglutide help you loss weight?
GLP-1 is a hormone in the human body that regulates appetite and digestion. After a meal, this hormone is released and send signals to the brain, triggering insulin production and reducing blood sugar levels. This hormone also slows down gastric emptying, keeping you satisfied and reducing blood sugar intake.
Medications like Semaglutide mimic the effects of the GLP-1 hormone over a specific period. Due to its mimicking properties, Semaglutide has been tested and found effective for adults with a BMI greater than 30 kg.
Do You Still Need to Diet and Exercise?
It’s essential to maintain an exercise routine while using Semaglutide. Although it aids weight management, it is not a single solution for weight loss and it needs to be used alongside dietary changes and some exercise.
Who Is an Good Candidate for Semaglutide?
Semaglutide can be used by anyone suffering from obesity, regardless of ethnicity, age, or BMI. However, the best candidates for Semaglutide are overweight adults with a BMI of 30 or above, or those with related diseases such as type 2 diabetes, gastroesophageal reflux, dyslipidemia, hypertension, or osteoarthritis.
What Are the Side Effects of Wegovy?
Patients using Semaglutide for weight loss may experience gastrointestinal side effects. The most common side effects include stomach pain, fatigue, headaches, bloating, constipation, and indigestion. Individuals with a family history of medullary thyroid cancer may experience more severe side effects. The FDA also cautions that Semaglutide may increase the risk of thyroid tumors, especially for individuals with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome Type 2.
How Should Semaglutide Be Administered?
Semaglutide is most effectively administered through injections. You will need to inject the peptide under the skin once a week during treatment. The dosage may vary among patients, and your physician will determine the appropriate level based on your medical history and body type.
