Why can’t I lose weight?
Before we get into the specifics of our Semaglutide treatment in Toledo, let’s uncover some of the reasons why you might be struggling with losing weight. Besides the common reasons like yo-yo dieting—which only results in more cravings and binge eating—and consuming more calories than you’re burning, here are other potential culprits:
- Certain medications, such as birth control pills
- Stress, anxiety, and depression
- Lack of exercise
- Health issues like hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism
- Underlying health issues such as heart disease, hormonal disorders, or sleep disorders
- Slow metabolism
- Eating late at night, which raises body temperature, blood sugar, and insulin, making it harder for your body to burn fat
- Consuming too much sugar
What is Semaglutide and how does it work?
Semaglutide is an FDA-approved weight management medication primarily self-administered through injections.
So what is Semaglutide? It’s a Glucose-like Peptide (GLP-1) inhibitor that accomplishes a few things:
- It helps your gut tell your brain that you are full and you don’t need energy from food at that time.
- It helps your pancreas release insulin when blood sugar levels are high. The insulin moves sugar from your blood and your body converts it into energy.
- It slows down the digestion process, which causes your stomach to feel full for longer.
Semaglutide treatment in Toledo works when combined with a healthy, well-balanced diet and an exercise regime. Weight loss injections don’t magically make you drop weight, they’re a catalyst for weight loss when you’re taking the right steps on your end!
To be clear, there is no magic pill for weight loss; there is only science. Burn more calories than you consume through exercise and a healthy diet and improve your internal bodily processes through Semaglutide.
Blush Aesthetics is here to help you write up a safe, comprehensive plan for shedding those unwanted pounds. We won’t prescribe you the treatment and shout “Good luck” while sending you on your merry way. We will support you throughout the process!
How quickly does Semaglutide work?
We understand that you want to have an idea of the timeline; however, Semaglutide works at different paces for everyone.
An American Medical Association study found that through Semaglutide treatment, the participants achieved 6% weight loss by week 12 and 12% by week 28.
As you can see, results aren’t immediate; time to final result looks different for everyone and depends on multiple factors. What will you change about your lifestyle to supplement your Semaglutide treatment?
Hopefully you incorporate more whole foods in your diet and start some form of physical activity, such as weight lifting or some form of cardio. Even the smallest changes in habits can lead to results, so if you haven’t been doing any form of physical activity, light walking is a great start.
When Semaglutide is used in correspondence with these healthy habits, it can work wonders!
What are the side effects of Semaglutide treatment in Toledo?
Now that you know how Semaglutide works, we want to inform you on the attributes that every medication has: side effects.
Although Semaglutide is safe and effective for a majority of people who have struggled with weight loss and metabolic conditions, it poses some side effects:
- Abdominal pain
As your body gets used to the medication, these side effects will subside. If they don’t, give us a call and we will talk it through!
During your consultation, one of our weight loss specialists will discuss your medical history and ensure you are aware of all of these side effects and the risks associated with Semaglutide, before starting treatment.
How can I get the best results?
In order to get the best results from the Semaglutide treatment in Toledo, treat it as a jumping off point. Starting this treatment will be the first step of your weight loss journey. The following steps are what will catapult the Semaglutide into action.
Do we sound like a broken record at this point? Semaglutide has to be used in conjunction with other elements of a well-rounded weight loss program in order to have the best results.
When you meet with Blush’s weight loss specialist, she will talk you through your weight loss journey and uncover some of the lifestyle changes necessary for this process.
The bottom line: Semaglutide will help stop those hunger pangs and cravings, but you have to do your part by eating healthy and moving your body.
Am I a candidate for Semaglutide treatment in Toledo?
So maybe you feel like you’ve tried everything and you still can’t get that stubborn weight off. If you are at least 18 years old and have a body mass index (BMI) of greater than or equal to 30kg/m², you are likely a candidate for Semaglutide treatment. Both men and women can benefit from this treatment!
BMI measures your weight and height to estimate how much body fat you “should” have. BMI should only be used by medical professionals who can look at BMI in comparison to other factors, such as percentage of muscle mass, genetics, and eating and exercise habits.
The process for receiving Semaglutide treatment in Toledo
If you feel like you may be a candidate for Semaglutide weight loss treatment, your next step is to schedule a consultation.
Step 1: Consultation
At Blush, our Semaglutide treatment is an entirelyonline weight loss program, allowing it to seamlessly fit into your routine. We are available via telehealth to those who live in Ohio. You no longer have to travel for your medical weight loss procedures, you can get support from the comfort of your home!
During your consultation, our medical weight loss specialist will ask you about your medical history, your family’s medical history, your struggles with weight loss, and your current lifestyle and habits.
It’s important to be honest with your specialist so they can best customize your weight loss plan. After you have discussed everything, we will order lab work.
Step 2: The customized weight loss plan
Once your specialist receives your lab results and devises a plan, you will have another telehealth meeting to discuss your treatment.
If your specialist determines that our Semaglutide treatment is right for you, your medication will be sent to a compounding pharmacy and then shipped right to your doorstep!
A compounding pharmacy is different from a traditional pharmacy in that the pharmacists at a compounding pharmacy can combine ingredients in-house to meet an individual patient’s needs. A prescription is still required for compounding pharmacies.
By sending your Semaglutide prescription to a compounding pharmacy, we ensure you are getting the treatment we customized specifically for you!
Step 3: Implementation
If we’re being real here, implementation is the hard part. Once we hand the treatment plan over to you, you decide whether or not you’re going to follow through with it. The weight loss plan will take place over a 3 to 6 month period, all depending on your goals.
Whether you decide to be fully dedicated to your treatment plan is up to you, but we will still be by your side throughout the program. We will check in with you via telehealth every 3 weeks and call in a new prescription for you at that time.
If you have questions at any point before, during, or after your Semaglutide treatment in Toledo, let us know! We will happily hop on a call with you.
