Is your weight holding you back?

Are you ready to attain your ideal body weight? For individuals struggling with excess weight despite adhering to a healthy diet and consistent exercise regimen, Semaglutide in North Overland Park provides an effective solution for weight loss.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a medication utilized to assist both men and women in shedding excess weight and achieving a healthy body mass. Initially designed for managing diabetes, it has gained recognition for its remarkable efficacy in promoting substantial weight loss safely.

Semaglutide is given through a weekly subcutaneous injection for up to 16 weeks, with the option for periodic treatment thereafter. Dosage varies based on individual health, weight, and weight loss objectives. It is incrementally adjusted over time, typically resulting in noticeable weight changes within 4 to 6 weeks of initiating injections.

When paired with proper nutrition and physical activity, this approach can assist you in attaining optimal outcomes.

Semaglutide can be prescribed to both men and women, particularly individuals with a Body Mass Index (BMI) of 30 or higher. It is also suitable for those with a BMI of 27 or higher, along with high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, or other health conditions that may pose challenges to weight loss efforts.

How Does Semaglutide Work?

Semaglutide, a GLP-1 receptor agonist, mimics the hormone GLP-1 responsible for hunger regulation. Weekly injections of Semaglutide lead to suppressed hormones and delayed gastric emptying, promoting a feeling of fullness and satisfaction after meals.

A study involving 1,961 individuals with a BMI over 30 and no diabetes revealed that combining Semaglutide injections with exercise resulted in an average body weight reduction of 14.9% over a span of 68 weeks. In contrast, the placebo group experienced only a 2.4% mean decrease in weight.

Another study revealed that when Semaglutide is paired with a low-calorie diet and behavioral therapy, it leads to a notable increase in weight loss. Numerous studies have demonstrated that Semaglutide is most effective when combined with a healthy diet and consistent exercise. At Gameday Men’s Health, your Semaglutide specialist will carefully examine your medical history, conduct a physical health analysis, evaluate your BMI, and address any treatment-related questions.

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.
