Let’s talk weight loss!
If you are obese or overweight and struggling to lose weight, we can help. We offer a variety of FDA approved prescription medications for weight loss including compounded Wegovy (semaglutide), Mounjaro (tirzepatide), Contrave (bupropion-naltrexone) and phentermine.
Excess weight and insulin resistance can lead to a variety of serious chronic health conditions such as Type 2 Diabetes, sleep apnea, heart disease, hormonal concerns in both men and women, and cancer. Losing five to ten percent of body weight can have impactful health benefits.
Our weight loss program offers ongoing treatment monitoring by our healthcare team. Our nurse practitioner will monitor your progress even for your long term weight management success.
How does Wegovy for Weight Loss Work?
Semaglutide is a drug class called GLP-1 agonists that are used to control blood sugar and can be taken to assist in weight loss. It works by:
- Slowing down how fast your stomach empties food.
- Blocking hormones that cause the liver to release sugar, thus helping control sugar
Together, these combined actions cause the feeling of hunger to decrease which leads to decreased appetite and weight loss. Patients taking Wegovy to lose weight saw significant weight loss, an average of 15% body weight after 1 year.
