How Does Semaglutide in Sugar Land Work?

Semaglutide can be a positive addition to your weight loss plan. By visiting Dr. Shel, usually once per week, for the treatment, you’ll start to see decreases in your appetite and, ultimately, a reduction in that number on the scale. You’ll also see a smaller number when the tape measure is around your waistline.This FDA-approved weight loss drug is a game-changer! Researchers found that semaglutide caused 15% weight loss in adult patients. That’s a staggering 35 pounds on average!

Although semaglutide was originally designed to control blood sugar in diabetic patients, it’s also been shown to reduce body fat in healthy individuals.

The process begins with a comprehensive evaluation, including taking your weight, figuring out your BMI, and assessing your overall health. Based on all the information we gather, Dr. Shel will create a plan that’s personalized to you. We’ll provide you with diet and exercise tips and will discuss if semaglutide is right for you.

Once you start receiving semaglutide, you’ll return to our office once a week, usually for an injection. The drug works by reducing your appetite, mainly after you eat, so you consume less at each meal. It targets the area in the hypothalamus (part of the brain) that regulates your appetite. In addition, your stomach will empty more slowly, which allows you to feel fuller longer. It also stimulates insulin secretion to regulate blood sugar, reducing sugar spikes and cravings.

Start losing today with a safe, proven method for weight loss! It’s like having a helping hand in your weight loss journey at all times.

Benefit from semaglutide with Dr. Shel: a handy tool for your weight loss belt.

Have you tried standard weight loss methods, i.e., diet and exercise, without much luck? Maybe you tried fad diets and a doctor-recommended one. You may even have purchased a gym membership and diligently used it multiple times per week. But in the end, you just didn’t achieve the weight loss you wanted. Maybe it didn’t even put a dent in your weight loss and waistline. Does this sound like your story?

While you can try different diet plans or increase your gym time, you may need more. The deck might be stacked against you. Sometimes, genetics and hormones just don’t play fair. However, that dream body might be more achievable than you think. If we piqued your interest, let us reveal the secret — semaglutide.

This particular drug is often part of a medical weight loss plan at Dr. Shel Wellness & Aesthetic Center. It works in a unique way to help amp up your weight loss, increasing your satiety and reducing cravings.

Is Semaglutide in Sugar Land Right for Me?

Semaglutide is a treatment that’s right for many, but not all. We recommend it for people who’ve tried diet and exercise alone in the past without any or inadequate success.

To ensure it’s safe for you, you’ll first need to undergo a thorough health assessment to evaluate if you fall in the category of being overweight or obese because of how much weight loss it can trigger.

We’ll also consider your overall health since side effects are possible. We generally advise against it if you have any of the following:

  • History of Medullary Thyroid Cancer: The drug is a GLP-1 receptor agonist, which has been shown to cause recurrences of thyroid tumors in patients with a history of it.
  • History of Pancreatitis: Although it’s not completely understood why pancreatitis occurs from semaglutide, it can cause this side effect, particularly in those with an increased risk.
  • History of Gallbladder Disease: This medication can increase your chance of gallbladder disease and gallstones by decreasing bile flow and slowing how quickly the gallbladder empties.

Additionally, we’ll carefully review your medications because interactions are possible with certain diabetes medications. Your dosage may need to be adjusted accordingly.

Losing weight doesn’t have to be stressful when semaglutide is available from Dr. Shel.

What to Expect With Semaglutide

In contrast to “one-size-fits-all” approaches, we provide all patients with a custom plan tailored to their individual needs.

At our Sugar Land clinic, we’ll give you a thorough consultation about your concerns and needs. We’ll also carefully review your medical history to determine if semaglutide for weight loss is right for you. Dr. Shel might order laboratory testing to understand your health better. At this point, we can decide on the dosage and frequency for you.

After you’ve been approved for this treatment, you’ll start your series of injections. How long you take them will depend on your response. As long as you’re not experiencing any serious side effects and the drug is effective, you can remain on it for quite some time safely.

When you come in for each appointment, we’ll ask you questions to gauge your response to the medication. We’ll also take your weight to monitor your progress and, of course, celebrate your wins with you.

The injection itself is a quick process. It’s subcutaneous, meaning it’s given under the skin and only requires a small needle. You’ll feel a short-lived pinching sensation, and then it’s over! You’ll receive the injections in the upper arm, stomach, or thigh. After you receive it, you may return to doing whatever your day requires. You can even leave our office and go to work because there’s no downtime afterward.

Not everyone will experience side effects, but those who do may have:

  • Nausea
  • Vomiting
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea

Common Questions About Semaglutide

When you receive semaglutide in Sugar Land, TX, it works in several ways to help you lose weight. For one, it regulates your appetite by targeting the part of your brain responsible for it. It helps to reduce your blood sugar by assisting the pancreas in releasing the right amount of insulin. This drug also makes you feel fuller for longer by slowing digestion in the stomach.

Numerous studies have shown semaglutide as an effective method for weight loss, with many patients seeing a 15% reduction in weight, equivalent to 35 pounds on average. Plus, many people respond well to it without side effects.

Each patient is different when it comes to their weight loss success. However, many patients have seen that kind of loss in a matter of a month.

Visiting us for regular injections is essential to ensure the drug continues to work. Making changes to your diet and getting adequate exercise are also surefire ways to maximize your results. Our Dr. Shel can make recommendations for your situation to speed up weight loss while ensuring you lose weight safely.

Ideally, you should limit your sugar intake as much as possible when taking semaglutide. By eating foods high in sugar, especially processed sugar, you counteract the effects of semaglutide and cause blood sugar spikes.
