Maintaining our ideal weight becomes increasingly challenging as we age, with reasons varying from one individual to another. My objective is to help identify the underlying cause of your weight gain so that once you discontinue the use of semaglutide or tirzepatide, you can sustain the weight loss.

Struggling to shed excess weight or prevent its return may be attributed to several factors, including hormonal shifts, hypothyroidism, inadequate sleep, altered insulin sensitivity, poor diet or the "wrong" diet for YOU, stress, alcohol consumption, toxin overload, and more. Throughout this journey, I will offer advice and guidance to help you achieve the most favorable results.

What is Semaglutide and Tirzepatide?

Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists. They mimic the GLP-1 hormone, released in the gut in response to eating. 

Indication for Use:

GLP1-agonists are indicated as an adjunct to diet and exercise to improve glycemic control for adults with obesity (BMI >30) or overweight (BMI >25) who also have weight-related medical problems to help them lose weight and keep the weight off.

Good Faith Exam:

Prior to initiating treatment with a GLP-1, a good faith examination by our MD or mid-level practitioner is required to determine the patient's suitability for the medication.

Administration:

Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are a once-a-week injection.

Labs:

Prior to initiating treatment, patients need to have their creatinine and HbA1c levels drawn. We can accept any labs drawn within the last 12 months.

Conclusion:

Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are medications and should only be used under the supervision of a medical professional. GLP-1 agonists, when used for the proper indications, have been shown to be safe and effective.
