What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist prescription drug that can assist with the health barriers that often come with type 2 diabetes, insulin resistance, metabolic syndrome, and obesity. Semaglutide is administered through weekly injections. If you’d like to learn more about Semaglutide, two of our medical providers, Dr. Plaster and Nurse Practitioner Amber Foster, discuss Semaglutide in this episode of our podcast, “Between Two White Coats.”

How does Semaglutide work?

Semaglutide helps to release insulin only when necessary, making it an excellent medication for type 2 diabetics who are trying to lose weight without the risk of hypoglycemia. However, this medicine is also safe for weight loss for people who are not diabeticSemaglutide injections aid in both appetite reduction and increasing feelings of fullness, making it easier for people to lose weight.

How do I ensure I don’t lose muscle while taking Semaglutide?

Our Semaglutide Medical Weight Loss program includes regular body composition scale measurements to obtain a comprehensive view into your body composition analysis to evaluate that you are losing fat, not muscle, and staying well hydrated. Our medical providers can then work with you to suggest additional movement and muscle building plans when indicated.

Yes, we offer a maintenance program for people who have previously taken a GLP-1 either through Our Family Health or from another provider. This program offers two 0.5 mg injections of Semaglutide two times a month (every 14 days) for $189/month. To enroll in this program, please contact 770-464-0280.
