What is Semaglutide:
A Complete Beginner’s Guide

Is your weight holding you back?

Are you ready to reach your ideal body weight? If you’re someone who has excess weight and has tried following a healthy diet along with regular exercise, Semaglutide is a drug for helping people lose weight.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is used to help both men and women lose unwanted pounds and reach a healthy weight. It was previously used to help individuals with diabetes, but it’s now known for being an extremely effective drug for people who want to experience significant weight loss in a safe manner.

Semaglutide is administered as a subcutaneous injection on a weekly basis for up to 16 weeks. Periodic treatment can be administered as needed following this time period. The exact amount of dosage will vary from person to person based on each individual’s health, weight, and specific weight loss goals. The dosage is slowly increased over time, with most individuals noticing a change in weight between 4 to 6 weeks after beginning the injections.

When combined with a healthy diet and exercise, it can help you achieve maximum results.

Semaglutide can be prescribed to both men and women, specifically those with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher. It can also be prescribed to those with a BMI of 27 or higher and high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, or other health conditions that can make losing weight very difficult.

How Does Semaglutide Work?

Semaglutide is GLP-1 (glucagon-like-peptide-1), a receptor agonist, which means that it mimics the hormone GLP-1 known for regulating hunger (and therefore food intake). When Semaglutide is injected weekly, the hormone is suppressed and gastric emptying is delayed. This results in you feeling much more full and satisfied after eating a meal.

One study of 1,961 people found that in people with a BMI over 30 and who did not have diabetes, Semaglutide injections combined with exercise resulted in a mean decrease in body weight of 14.9% over 68 weeks. The placebo group saw only a 2.4% mean decrease in weight.

A second study found that when Semaglutide is combined with a low-calorie diet and behavioral therapy, it results in an even more significant amount of weight loss. Overall, many studies have shown that Semaglutide is most effective when it’s combined with a healthy diet and consistent exercise. At Gameday Men’s Health, your Semaglutide specialist will thoroughly review your medical history, perform a physical health analysis, evaluate your BMI, and answer any questions you might have regarding treatment.

Gameday has greatly improved my life and I highly recommend everybody to go give them a visit. They’re professional and, more importantly, attentive to what I was saying. I was so relieved after meeting with the Gameday team – the search for a treatment was finally over and things can only move up from here! My girlfriend was also glad that Gameday was able to provide a treatment that not only was effective, but also reassuring knowing that each visit was getting me back to my normal self. I’m not longer lethargic throughout the day and I’ve even been told that I was glowing haha!

Things in my life weren’t getting much worse in the past year. I was tired but I felt like who wasn’t? I gained weight but I also worked a sedentary job. What really got me was that when I was out with my friends and an attractive person passed me, I had no reaction. That was a wake up call for me. My friend actually got treatment at Gameday and highly recommended reaching out. Best decision ever. The staff had such an expertise and were straightforward about what was possible and what should be expected. Within 3 months, I feel overall more alive and I gained more confidence. 10/10 awesome experience.

If you ask anybody from my inner circle, they would all say that I’m athletic, handsome, and energetic. I didn’t feel like any of those a little after turning 43. I gained a little over 15 pounds, lost patches of hair over my body, and couldn’t get good sleep so I was always tired. I did some research and they were all symptoms of low testosterone. I spoke to my wife and she mentioned that her brother-in-law went through the same thing and went through a TRT protocol with GameDay. I did the same and couldn’t be happier. The icing on the cake is the fact that Gameday worked with my insurance plan!

Words you never want to hear when having sex: “Is everything okay?” My wife noticed the lackluster sex and I’m glad she said something because if not I would have never found out about Gameday and their treatment for low testosterone levels. After just a couple of months, TRT is rocking my life and rejuvenated my sex life. My wife and I are forever thankful that Gameday was able to help me with their dedicated support and expert knowledge. We spoke to a few other clinics and we didn’t feel comfortable with the way they were just trying to push us towards a payment.
