Is your weight holding you back?
If you’re someone who struggles with weight loss, Semaglutide injections with GameDay Men’s Health could give you the help you need to reach your ideal weight.
Semaglutide is an FDA-approved drug to promote weight loss in people who are considered obese and/or overweight. While Semaglutide has previously been used to help people with diabetes, it has become incredibly popular for its effectiveness in helping overweight people lose weight in a safe manner.
With small weekly injections, men and women can experience significant weight loss to look and feel their best. It is often recommended to receive the injections in combination with incorporating a healthy diet and exercise into your daily routine for maximum results.
This means that it mimics the hormone GLP-1, which regulates hunger and food intake. Additionally, when Semaglutide is taken on a weekly basis, it suppresses the hormone glucagon to prevent feelings of hunger. Additionally, it delays gastric emptying, therefore making you feel more satisfied after a meal.
A recent 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 combined with behavioral therapy and incorporating a low-calorie diet into meal plans, Semaglutide provided even more significant weight loss.
Semaglutide is often prescribed to men and women who have a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher, or individuals with a BMI of 27 or higher that is accompanied by high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, or other health conditions that can make weight loss difficult.
Semaglutide injections offer many benefits to qualified candidates, including:
It often is not until 4 or more weeks on a dose of 25 units + that patients will start to see a decline in weight. It’s possible that some individuals might not notice weight loss until close to 6 weeks.
Studies have shown that Semaglutide is most effective when combined with exercise and changes in diet. Therefore, the exact amount of time someone might need to receive this treatment will depend on current health conditions (if any) and if exercise and dietary changes can be adopted permanently to maintain an ideal weight.
If you are someone who has excess weight and/or is obese without any significant health complications, you might be a candidate for Semaglutide injections.
Potential side effects can include headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain, dizziness, changes in mood, constipation or diarrhea, heartburn, and bloating. While rare, more severe side effects can include pancreatitis, allergic reactions, kidney damage, gallstones, and others.
Your medical specialist at GameDay Men’s Health will thoroughly discuss the potential side effects with you and answer any questions you might have regarding the injections.
Your GameDay Men’s Health Semaglutide specialist will review your health history with you and perform a physical health analysis, including evaluating your BMI.
Semaglutide injections only need to be given once per week as a subcutaneous injection. The dosage is typically increased over time as the weeks’ progress. The exact amount of dosage given will depend on your specific health, weight, and needs. As mentioned, most individuals begin to notice weight loss between 4 to 6 weeks after beginning the injections.
