Semaglutide Q&A

What are the benefits of Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a peptide injection under the brand names Ozempic® and Wegovy®.

When used along with healthy lifestyle habits, it can:

  • Stimulate weight loss

  • Control blood sugar

  • Reduce appetite

  • Enhance fat burning

  • Reduce your body fat percentage

  • Improve fertility in women with polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)

  • Protect your nervous system

​​​​​​​You may lose a significant amount of body weight when using Semaglutide. If you’re overweight, weight loss can increase your energy, reduce chronic disease risks, and improve disease management.

Is Semaglutide right for me?

If you have excess body weight and traditional diet and exercise plans haven’t worked, Semaglutide might be the solution for you. To find out, your Live Well Wellness Center specialist weighs you, determines your body mass index (BMI), checks your vital signs, reviews your medical history, and completes a medical evaluation.

​​​​​​​You might also undergo blood tests to check for nutritional deficiencies, hormone imbalances, chronic diseases, or disease risk factors before your specialist tailors a weight loss plan best suited to your needs.

What should I expect when taking Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an injection you administer yourself once a week using a very tiny needle. Every four weeks, your dosage may change to maximize the results. When taking Semaglutide, you can expect to feel fuller quicker and stay satisfied longer.

Once you reach your target body weight, your weight loss specialist slowly tapers your Semaglutide dosage to help you maintain your goal weight long term.

​​​​​​​To enhance your weight loss, it’s also important to exercise regularly, follow your customized diet plan, and achieve hormone balance. Live Well Wellness Center offers hormone replacement therapy for low hormone levels.

How much weight can I lose with Semaglutide?

Every person has a unique weight loss journey, but you may lose 4-10 pounds per month and up to 50 pounds over six months while using Semaglutide. Follow your meal plan and administer Semaglutide exactly as directed to increase your chance of long-lasting success.
