What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide, sold under the brand name Ozempic, Wegovy, among others, is used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and ongoing weight management. Semaglutide is a Glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor antagonist which improves blood sugar control in people with Type II Diabetes.  Because it also slows gastric emptying, which keeps you fuller longer, people can lose large amounts of weight overtime.  It was FDA-approved in 2021 for weight loss.

Who is this Weight Loss Program for?

Because it is not a stimulant, Semaglutide is a good solution for those who may not be able to take stimulant-based appetite suppressants such as phentermine. Stimulants are often not prescribed for patients who have existing cardiovascular disease as they can complicate these conditions. 

Semaglutide is for patients who want to lose weight, especially patients with type 2 diabetes or whose weight puts them at risk of a serious cardiovascular event (like heart attack or stroke).

How does it work?

Semaglutide slows down the rate at which your stomach sends food to your large intestine. This results in slower digestion (which improves blood sugar) and a longer feeling of fullness. It also stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin, removing sugar from the bloodstream.

Patients on Semaglutide have reported reduced appetite and a reduced craving for sweets, both of which contribute to weight loss. Patients also report that over-eating while on Semaglutide results in unpleasant side effects, which discourages poor eating habits. 

What to eat when taking Semaglutide?

  • Eat slowly, and eat smaller meals.
  • Eat foods that are light and bland.
  • Drink clear or ice-cold drinks (like water or unsweetened tea)
  • Avoid fried, greasy, or sweet foods.

At The Woodlands Institute we offer virtual and in-office appointments to fit your schedule. The first time you complete the Weight Loss Protocol you will meet with one of our medical providers to discuss the program and make sure that you are a candidate.
