Semaglutide Weight Loss Green Ohio

Semaglutide, a GLP-1 medication initially was used to treat type 2 diabetes, but has recently gained approval for use as a weight loss aid. The medication, which is sold under the brand name Wegovy, is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, which means it works by stimulating the production of insulin and suppressing the appetite. The medication is now avaialable as a custom blended medication by doctors at the Beneficial Health Weight Loss Clinic who are accepting patients from Green, Ohio for their Doctor prescribed weight loss program.

The approval of semaglutide for weight loss has been a game changer for many individuals struggling with obesity. According to the World Health Organization, over 1.9 billion adults worldwide are overweight, with 650 million of those being classified as obese. With obesity being a serious health concern that is associated with an increased risk of many chronic diseases, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and certain cancers. Semaglutide offers a new, effective option for those looking to lose weight and improve their overall health.

In clinical trials, semaglutide has been shown to be highly effective in promoting weight loss. The STEP (Semaglutide Treatment Effect in People with Obesity) program, which included over 4,500 participants, found that individuals who took semaglutide lost an average of 15% of their body weight, compared to just 2.4% for those who received a placebo. The weight loss was sustained over a 68-week period of time, with participants continuing to lose weight even after the medication was discontinued.

Semaglutide and other GLP-1 are taken once a week by subcutaneous injection.  To find out if you are a candidate for this call for a free consultation today.  Beneficial Health Weight Loss Clinic can help you with your weight loss goals in the Green, Ohio area.
