To receive Ozempic injections, you will need a medical indication, otherwise this treatment can not be claimed for insurance. We can only offer weight loss injections after a patient has been evaluated by our physician assistant Kara Reid.
Experiencing and maintaining weight loss is a struggle for millions of people all over the world. While most are familiar with the weight loss mantra of ‘eat less, move more’, we know from numerous clinical studies that it isn’t quite as simple as that for some.
Medical conditions, both physical and mental, and our unique biology can often affect our ability to lose weight. This is why many choose to enhance the effectiveness of their weight loss journey by supplementing it with additional weight management tools.
Ozempic is a synthetically created hormone that imitates the Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) that naturally occurs in body. The GLP-1 hormone helps to regulate blood sugar levels, and also plays a part in controlling our hunger and fullness cues. This makes it a key player in managing our appetite and keeping our weight under control. Ozempic works in a similar way, helping patients to control their blood sugar, insulin levels, and rate of digestion.
The big difference between GLP-1 and Ozempic is that the molecular structure of Ozempic is modified just slightly to improve its longevity in the body and decrease the rate at which it’s broken down. It is administered once weekly via injection which can either be done in a clinic or at home.
Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) is a naturally occurring hormone produced by the body that helps to regulate blood sugar levels and plays a key role in controlling the level of satiety one feels after they eat.
Ozempic is nearly identical to the hormone GLP-1, but slight molecular differences make it more effective at aiding in sustainable weight loss. This synthetic hormone is specifically designed to delay the rate at which the stomach empties food into the intestine, leaving its users feeling fuller for longer and more satiated overall. In combination with healthy lifestyle choices, Ozempic offers an additional layer of aid for those struggling to shed their unwanted weight.
Ozempic can be administered at home, or at a clinical office, once a week via a small injection to the upper arm, thigh, or abdomen.
Ozempic can help those with diabetes to stabilize and control their blood sugar levels. It has also been proven to effectively help patients lose excess weight when used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise.
Ozempic aids wight loss by:
• Delaying gastric emptying. This allows food to stay in the stomach for more time which leads patients to feeling fuller and more satiated over a longer period.
• Reducing hunger. Ozempic affects the hypothalamus region of the brain which is responsible for regulating hunger and appetite. By intervening in this area, they help delay the neural cues so that recipients (1) don’t feel hungry as often and (2) feel satiated for longer when they do eat.
• Preventing overeating. This hormone injection affects your satiety levels, helping its takers to feel full earlier. This lessens the likelihood of eating past the point of fullness and/or comfort.
• Improving cardiovascular health. Ozempic has been shown to reduce waist circumference and improve cardiovascular function. Studies have shown reductions in both systolic and diastolic blood pressure. As a result, those patients with cardiovascular risk factors may prefer Ozempic over other weight loss medications.
Ozempic may be an option for those individuals who are diabetic, have a body mass index (BMI) that is significantly over the healthy range (27 or above), who have a weight-related disease, or who have cardiovascular issues in addition to weight problems. It is also meant to be used alongside healthy lifestyle changes, including a balanced diet and exercise regime, for sustainable and long-term results.
