Semaglutide Compounded Injection

GLP-1 antagonists provides real results to clients who have struggled in the past with chronic weight management & elevation in Hemoglobin A1c. Semaglutide is a glucagon peptide receptor antagonist (GLP-1) that improves the overall function of your pancreas. Taking this medication on average, patients have lost 30 pounds over the course of treatment. Full course of treatment is 12 weeks followed by maintenance therapy.  This treatment requires a consultation with our Family Nurse Practitioner with lab work prior to beginning your treatment plan. Your Lab work will be performed at your consultation appointment.

How Does The Compunded Ingredient Semaglutide Work ?

Semaglutide delays gastric emptying (food leaving from your stomach) with reduction of glucagon secretion. What does this mean for you? This mechanism will reduce your appetite, lower your cravings (typically for sweet and sugary foods) and improve your eating habits.
