Semaglutide has been clinically proven to support healthy blood sugar levels, sustainable weight loss, and maintaining a normal BMI. It has also been shown to reduce waist circumference, curb unhealthy cravings, and to extend the patient’s sense of fullness after eating.
In addition, regular injections have also been shown to have cardiovascular benefits. This includes lowering levels of systolic and diastolic blood pressure, making it the preferred weight loss option for those who are trying to shed excess weight while also grappling with cardiovascular issue.
By injecting a dose of semaglutide into the thigh, upper arm, or abdomen, it can help patients manage their cravings, feel more satiated for longer periods of time, and to stabilize their blood sugar.
Semaglutide works by affecting the hypothalamus area of the brain, which is the region tasked with controlling hunger and fullness cues. Regular injections curbs hunger and prolong feelings of satiation after eating by delaying gastric emptying, keeping food in the stomach for longer.
While injections are not meant as a quick-fix solution to weight loss, they can optimize and supplement a healthy diet and exercise regime for long term weight loss.
Those who use semaglutide tend to get results quickly, with many experiencing weight loss within the first two weeks following their initial injection.
However, there are many additional factors that may affect the rate at which you experience weight loss. This includes how much initial excess weight you have to lose, if you’re pairing injections with healthy lifestyle choices, and how intently you’re sticking to your weight loss program.
It’s important to understand that weight loss takes time and semaglutide injections are not a quick fix solution. Ensure that you’re keeping your expectations realistic and that you’re focussed on sustainable weight loss and healthy lifestyle habits as you move through your treatment.
