What is Semaglutide and how does it work?

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) analog. GLP-1 is a peptide hormone produced in the small intestine that stimulates insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon secretion, slows gastric emptying, and regulates appetite – all of which aid in healthy and effective weight loss.  Studies by The New England Journal of Medicine and Journal of American Medical Association, two of the most reputable journals in medicine, have shown that Semaglutide can reduce appetite, regulate glucose levels, and reduce food cravings that have resulted in a 15% loss of total body weight. In this study, results showed overweight or obese adults receiving weekly Semaglutide had an average weight loss of 14.9% at 68 weeks. In this same study, nearly 70% of participants were able to achieve a 10% weight loss threshold by taking Semaglutide. And 32% of participants lost at least 20% of their initial weight.

Semaglutide is a medication designed to help lower glucose levels in diabetic patients. It was discovered that it also helped both diabetic and non-diabetic patients lose weight safely and effectively.

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist that acts in four ways to help aid your body in weight loss:

  • It helps your pancreas produce more insulin.

Insulin helps control the body’s blood sugar. With blood sugar levels in a stable range, the body has to rely on storages of fuel (fat) for energy.

  • It slows down the emptying of your stomach after finishing a meal.

You will feel fuller for longer, and it will take less food to give you the feeling of being full, thus reducing your caloric intake.

  • It reduces the glucagon hormone.

Glucagon naturally increases the body’s blood sugar. Reducing this will encourage the body to use alternative forms of fuel, like fat, for energy.

  • It reduces the brain’s craving for food.

The less you crave snacks and treats, the fewer empty calories you’ll be consuming.

As a result of semaglutide treatments, you may see significant weight loss. Semaglutide therapy is also associated with a decreased risk of cardiovascular disease and diabetes, less joint pain, and reduced blood pressure.

Yes. Patients who take semaglutide see significant weight loss. It is especially useful for those struggling with obesity or weight-related medical conditions (type-2 diabetes, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, etc.).

The 2021 STEP clinical trials at the University of Alabama Birmingham (and other medical centers in the U.S.) lauded the positive results of higher doses of semaglutide for the purpose of weight loss. “More than 50 percent of trial participants are losing 15 percent of their body weight, and anywhere between a third and 40 percent of participants are losing 20 percent of their body weight.” Compared to the 5.7% body weight loss in the placebo group, these findings are astonishing.

Semaglutide is clearly worth it, but remember— in addition to the injections, you will need to maintain a healthy diet and commit to regular exercise. If you are considering semaglutide therapy, schedule a free consultation at Limitless Male to find out if it’s right for you.

According to an article in The New England Journal of Medicine, the STEP study found that weight loss of about 2% of the patients’ body weight was observed by week 4 of the study. You should also be able to notice a difference in your appetite and cravings immediately.

Semaglutide treatment improves your body composition by reducing excess body fat and increasing lean body mass. With that transition, belly fat will be reduced. However, semaglutide will not target belly fat specifically. Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine will amplify the effects of semaglutide injections.

Yes. Semaglutide is an effective weight loss adjunct for people without diabetes as well as for those with type 2 diabetes.

The side effects from semaglutide injections are typically mild and lessen as the body adjusts to the medication. You’ll build up to the full dose over time, which should reduce the potential for side effects such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and/or constipation.

However, you should not have semaglutide injections if you suffer from or have a family history of the conditions below. The Mayo Clinic warns that you should check with your doctor before taking semaglutide if you have a history of the following:

  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Low blood sugar
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Pancreatitis
  • Decreased kidney function
  • Medullary thyroid cancer
  • Multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2
  • A family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma
  • Kidney disease
  • Type 1 diabetes
  • Diabetic ketoacidosis

Schedule a free consultation with a qualified medical professional to find out if semaglutide therapy is a good fit for your weight loss needs.

Maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine in addition to your semaglutide injections is essential to maximize your weight loss. Avoid processed foods and simple carbohydrates. Focus on foods that provide a sustainable energy source. A diet of foods rich in protein, fiber, and healthy fats is always recommended.

No. Semaglutide isn’t a stimulant, so it won’t “give” you energy. However, due to weight loss, you may have more energy naturally.

Indefinitely. It is up to you how long you stay on semaglutide. However, we recommend that you commit to semaglutide for a minimum of six months.

Along with weight loss, semaglutide may reduce the associated risk of chronic illnesses. If you stop semaglutide treatment, you will likely gain back much, if not all, of the lost weight. This also increases the risk of associated conditions such as cardiovascular disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, and high cholesterol.

Semaglutide is a lifestyle choice that benefits your health and quality of life. It isn’t a decision to be taken lightly, but in many cases of obesity or weight-related medical conditions, it is an excellent option.
