OlympusMD Wellness in Dawsonville, GA is proud to offer Semaglutide

Semaglutide provides significantly greater weight loss success compared to other weight loss medications.

That includes phentermine, Tenuate (diethylpropion), Contrave, Qsymia, and Saxenda.

Semaglutide has been known to double or even triple the odds of losing and sustaining a 5-10% weight loss. An average weight loss of 15% suggests that Semaglutide is at least 50% stronger than other currently available medications.

What is Semaglutide?

The compound found in Semaglutide is a synthetic form of the naturally occurring hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). It is the active ingredient in several diabetes and weight loss drugs, including Ozempic, Wegoby, and Rybelsus, and is prescribed in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise.

Semaglutide is an injection you give yourself once a week. You can also drop in and have one of our RNs administer the treatment weekly via subcutaneous injection.

*We use Semaglutide API, NOT Salts like Semaglutide Sodium or Semaglutide Acetate*

How does Semaglutide work?

How exactly does Semaglutide reduce appetite, improve control of eating, and reduce food cravings?

  • Semaglutide works like GLP-1, a hormone naturally released in the gut as a response to eating. This prompts the body to produce more insulin, which helps to reduce blood sugar (glucose).
  • GLP-1 interacts with the part of the brain that signals you to feel full. It effectively reduces the rate at which your stomach empties, suppressing your appetite.
  • Semaglutide also inhibits the production of glucagon, a hormone that can cause blood sugar to spike. By regulating blood sugar metabolism, Semaglutide causes fewer hunger pangs and food cravings.

Semaglutide benefits can be seen through its impact on blood sugar metabolism and appetite suppression. It also helps with internal inflammation. Because it acts as an insulin regulator and encourages reduced calorie intake, it is amazingly effective for weight loss.
