Semaglutide Q&A

What is semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an approved weight loss medication that can help burn fat, curb cravings, boost energy, and much more. My Healthy Body’s high-grade medications are compounded at licensed US pharmacies and created to help patients lose weight and live a healthy life.

Like the similar drugs OzempicⓇ and WegovyⓇ, semaglutide mimics the GLP1 hormone. This hormone helps regulate your appetite. When you eat, GLP-1 prompts the release of insulin, which lowers your blood sugar. 

By mimicking this hormone, semaglutide can help reduce hunger and control cravings to aid in weight loss. Combining semaglutide with a healthy diet, exercise, and lifestyle changes accelerates weight loss for longer-lasting results.

What are the benefits of semaglutide?

Semaglutide offers many benefits for people seeking sustainable weight loss, including:

Appetite regulation

Semaglutide effectively reduces hunger and controls cravings to help you lose weight faster.

Insulin release

By prompting insulin release, semaglutide helps lower blood sugar levels, contributing to better glucose control. It’s a popular medication for managing Type 2 diabetes.

Slowed digestive emptying

Semaglutide slows stomach emptying, further supporting weight-loss efforts.

Versatility

Its dual action on appetite and metabolism positions semaglutide as a dynamic solution for managing weight and associated health factors.

I’m starting semaglutide. What can I expect?

First, you meet with the team to review a short presentation on semaglutide and ask any questions you have. 

After that, you meet with a provider for a consultation about your medical history and weight loss goals. Semaglutide is available as a weekly injection or a daily sublingual — the choice is yours. 

Your prescription starts at the lowest dose to see how well your body tolerates the medication.  

The team at My Healthy Body sends the prescription to the pharmacy right after your consultation. The medication usually takes four or five days to reach the clinic, upon which the team will call or text you to pick it up. 

Your semaglutide medication ships monthly, and the My Healthy Body team contacts you each time it is ready for pick-up. 

Does semaglutide cause side effects?

Side effects from semaglutide injections are typically mild and rarely cause clients to stop the medication, but may include:

  • Nausea
  • Diarrhea
  • Constipation
  • Stomach cramping
  • Bloating
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Fatigue

Uncomfortable side effects usually stem from taking a higher dose initially or increasing your dosage too quickly. My Healthy Body offers an anti-nausea formula or sublingual tablets to help minimize side effects. 

Following a healthy, balanced diet and moderate exercise can help enhance the overall effectiveness of semaglutide and greatly enhance your short and long-term outcomes
