The Weight Loss Game Changer
Maintaining a healthy weight is essential to your health. According to the American Heart Association, when you’re at a healthy weight, you’re less likely to develop diabetes, heart disease, certain cancers, gallstones, osteoarthritis, breathing problems, and sleep apnea. Just as important, you feel better about yourself!
For most people, getting to a healthy weight means losing weight, which can be difficult. Keeping that weight off can be even more challenging. An ideal place to start is making lifestyle changes like eating healthy and exercising more. However, that only works for some people.
Weight gain and loss are due to a combination of genetics, hormones, environment, your brain, and lifestyle choices. If lifestyle changes aren’t moving the needle, it might be time to investigate other options. That’s where Semaglutide injections come in.
At Impact Health & Wellness, we’re excited to offer this option and help you lose that stubborn weight and keep it off.
Semaglutide injections are the first FDA-approved medicine for chronic weight management for people who are obese or overweight. It mimics the GLP-1 hormone, which is released in your gut in response to eating. When used in higher amounts, it can interact with the part of your brain that suppresses appetite.
Semaglutide injections can be very effective for weight loss when they’re used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity because they affect physiological and behavioral factors. This results in:
Semaglutide injections have been studied in several clinical trials focused on weight management. In 2021, a study of nearly 2,000 overweight and obese adults was conducted to help assess the effectiveness of semaglutide injections. After 68 weeks, the study found that participants who received the semaglutide injections and made lifestyle changes achieved an average weight loss of 14.9% from their baseline compared to an average weight loss of 2.4% that participants who made the same lifestyle changes but received the placebo.
It is important to remember that while many people experience substantial weight loss, your lifestyle choices and genetics will play a role in the amount of weight you lose.
Semaglutide injections are available for adults who are obese (BMI of 30 or greater) or overweight (BMI of 27 or greater) and also experience weight-related medical problems.
We’d love to schedule a consultation to determine if semaglutide injections are a good option for you. If you’re eligible and decide to proceed, we’ll complete your baseline lab work and develop a customized weight loss plan. This plan will consider your current health and your individual needs, goals, and progress.
Keep in mind that it is important that your weight loss occurs at a healthy rate. That’s why semaglutide injections are such a great option. By suppressing appetite and slowing digestion, you will lose weight gradually and safely.
To monitor your weight loss, we’ll set up ongoing appointments to track your progress. At these appointments, we’ll answer your questions, measure your Body Mass Index (BMI), and regularly check your bloodwork to ensure no underlying health issues exist.
Once you reach your weight loss goals, we’ll also make sure that you’ve made proper lifestyle changes so you can keep it off.
