Ozempic® (Semaglutide)

revolutionary medication

Semaglutide is the FDA-Approved active ingredient used in Ozempic® and Wegovy® that has helped thousands of people lose and maintain weight loss in combination with diet and exercise.

Medication is included in the program. Our Semaglutide is in combination with BPC-157 which is a Body Protection Compound and also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent. Learn more here about BPC-157 . Ozempic® (Semaglutide) is FDA-approved for type 2 diabetes treatment, but may be prescribed for weight loss.

Ozempic® (Semaglutide vs. Mounjaro (Tirzepatide): which is right for you?

In comparative head-to-head trials, Tirzepatide surpassed Semaglutide’s HbA1c reduction by an additional 24%. According to data from Phase III trial results in type 2 diabetic patients, Tirzepatide was non-inferior and was superior to Semaglutide with respect to the mean change in HbA1c from baseline to 40 weeks.

Studies show that tirzepatide may lead to more significant weight loss than semaglutide. However, there are some major limitations to these findings. First of all, the clinical studies on these two medications did not use comparable doses. The researchers studying semaglutide used 1 mg doses. The tirzepatide studies used the maximum approved dose of 2.4 mg. That may not seem like a big deal to you. But in research, different dose sizes can have significantly different effects. Increasing the semaglutide dose could have increased weight loss results to comparable levels.

Secondly, the results from the tirzepatide studies came from people with diabetes. The company that makes this drug is currently studying it in people with obesity. However, we will not get to see the results until later in 2023. If you are not taking tirzepatide for type 2 diabetes, you may not see the same weight loss effects. Even if you do lose weight, you may not lose as much as the participants in the study.

Finally, tirzepatide for weight loss did not receive traditional FDA approval. The Fast Track process claims to help drugs that fill unmet medical needs get to market faster. Yet, the program can also incentivize big pharma companies to cut corners. Semaglutide went through the normal FDA approval process. Many people believe it is a more trustworthy medication because of this fact. Of course, it is up to you to decide for yourself.

Impact of Ozempic® (Semaglutide)

Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs). It is primarily used to treat type 2 diabetes, but it has also shown potential for weight management. Semaglutide works by mimicking the action of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in the body. Here are some of the impacts of semaglutide on the body:

  • Blood sugar control: Semaglutide helps lower blood sugar levels by stimulating the release of insulin from the pancreas and reducing the production of glucagon, a hormone that raises blood sugar. It slows down the rate at which food is absorbed from the stomach, preventing sharp spikes in blood sugar levels after meals.

  • Weight loss: Semaglutide has been found to promote weight loss in people with obesity. It affects the hypothalamus in the brain, reducing appetite and increasing feelings of fullness, which can lead to a reduced calorie intake and subsequent weight loss.

  • Cardiovascular effects: Clinical trials have shown that semaglutide has cardiovascular benefits. It has been associated with a reduction in the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events, such as heart attacks and strokes, in people with type 2 diabetes and established cardiovascular disease.

  • Gastrointestinal effects: Semaglutide may cause gastrointestinal side effects, especially when starting the medication or increasing the dose. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and stomach discomfort. These side effects are generally mild and tend to improve over time.

  • Pancreatitis: Although rare, there have been reports of pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas) associated with the use of semaglutide and other GLP-1 RAs. Signs of pancreatitis include severe abdominal pain that may radiate to the back, nausea, and vomiting. If these symptoms occur, medical attention should be sought promptly.

It's important to note that the impact of semaglutide on the body may vary from person to person, and individual responses to the medication can differ. It is always recommended to consult with a healthcare professional for personalized advice and to discuss the potential benefits and risks of semaglutide in your specific situation.

Ozempic® (Semaglutide) 101

 

What is Ozempic® (Semaglutide)?

Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to the class of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. It is primarily used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus. However, in addition to its blood sugar management properties, Semaglutide has also demonstrated significant benefits for weight loss.

Clinical trials have shown that Semaglutide, when used at higher doses, can lead to notable weight loss in individuals with or without diabetes. In these studies, participants treated with Semaglutide achieved more significant weight loss compared to those receiving a placebo or lower doses of the medication. The exact mechanism by which Semaglutide promotes weight loss is not fully understood, but it is believed to involve appetite suppression, increased feelings of fullness, and a reduction in food intake.

Based on the positive results from these trials, a higher-dose formulation of Semaglutide has been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) specifically for chronic weight management in individuals without diabetes. This formulation is intended to be used alongside a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity to support sustainable weight loss.

It's important to note that Semaglutide should always be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional, who will monitor its effectiveness, potential side effects, and ensure its appropriate use in achieving weight loss goals.

How does Wegovy® (Semaglutide) work?

Semaglutide works by activating the glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptors in the body. GLP-1 is a hormone naturally produced in the intestines in response to food intake. It plays a crucial role in regulating blood sugar levels, insulin secretion, and appetite control.

When Semaglutide is injected, it acts as a GLP-1 receptor agonist, meaning it mimics the action of GLP-1 in the body. By binding to GLP-1 receptors, Semaglutide produces several beneficial effects:

Increased insulin secretion: Semaglutide stimulates the pancreas to release more insulin in response to rising blood sugar levels. Insulin helps to lower blood sugar by facilitating the uptake of glucose into cells.

Reduced glucagon production: Semaglutide suppresses the release of glucagon, a hormone that raises blood sugar levels. By reducing glucagon secretion, Semaglutide helps to prevent excessive glucose production by the liver.

Slowed gastric emptying: Semaglutide slows down the emptying of the stomach, which leads to a more gradual release of nutrients into the bloodstream. This helps to control post-meal blood sugar spikes.

Increased satiety: Semaglutide enhances feelings of fullness and satiety by acting on the brain's appetite centers. This can lead to a reduction in food intake and support weight loss efforts.

Overall, the actions of Semaglutide help to improve glycemic control, lower blood sugar levels, and promote weight loss in individuals with type 2 diabetes. It is important to note that Semaglutide is typically used in conjunction with lifestyle modifications, such as a healthy diet and regular physical activity, for optimal diabetes management.

Do you prescribe Ozempic® (Semaglutide) for weight loss?

Semaglutide is indeed FDA-approved for weight management, specifically for chronic weight management in individuals without diabetes. It has demonstrated significant weight loss effects in clinical trials.

Semaglutide's weight loss benefits are believed to be due to its action as a GLP-1 receptor agonist. By activating the GLP-1 receptors, Semaglutide helps decrease appetite, increase feelings of fullness, and slow gastric emptying. These effects contribute to a reduced calorie intake and support weight loss efforts.

Furthermore, Semaglutide's impact on the central nervous system, particularly the brain's appetite-regulating centers, may further help suppress appetite and promote weight loss.

It is important to note that Semaglutide for weight management should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional, and it is typically prescribed alongside a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.

What is Ozempic® (Semaglutide) dosing?

Semaglutide dosing starts at a low initial dose and gradually increases over the first few weeks to reach a steady dose. Your healthcare provider, particularly one affiliated with Moderne Body, will guide you in finding the appropriate schedule and dosing that is tailored to your specific needs.

The starting dose of Semaglutide is typically low, and it is gradually increased to ensure the medication is well-tolerated and to minimize any potential side effects. Your healthcare provider will closely monitor your response to the medication and adjust the dosage as necessary to achieve optimal treatment outcomes.

Working in collaboration with your healthcare provider, you will establish a dosing schedule that suits your individual circumstances and preferences. This personalized approach ensures that you receive the most effective and appropriate dosage of Semaglutide for managing your condition, whether it's for type 2 diabetes or weight management. One of the most common dosing schedule is:

Month 1: 0.25 mg (0.1mL SQ) once weekly
Month 2: 0.5 mg (0.2mL SQ) once weekly
Month 3: 1.0 mg (0.4mL SQ) once weekly
Month 4: 1.75 mg (0.7mL SQ) once weekly
Month 5: 2.5 mg (1mL SQ) once weekly

How do you take Ozempic® (Semaglutide)?

Semaglutide is typically administered through subcutaneous (under the skin) injections. The exact dosing and administration instructions will be provided by your healthcare provider or as indicated in the product's prescribing information. It's important to follow the prescribed dosage and administration instructions carefully.

Here is a general overview of the common steps involved in taking Semaglutide:

Preparation: Wash your hands with soap and water and gather all the necessary supplies, including the Semaglutide pen or syringe, alcohol swabs, and a sharps disposal container.

Select the injection site: Semaglutide injections are usually given in the abdomen (around the belly button) or the thigh. Rotate injection sites to avoid repeated injections in the same area.

Clean the injection site: Use an alcohol swab to clean the injection site and let it dry.

Prepare the Semaglutide pen or syringe: If using a pre-filled pen, remove the cap and attach the needle. If using a syringe, draw the appropriate dose of Semaglutide into the syringe as instructed by your provider.

Inject the medication: Pinch a fold of skin at the cleaned injection site and insert the needle into the skin at a 90-degree angle (or as instructed by your provider). Inject the medication slowly and steadily.

Remove the needle: Once the medication is injected, remove the needle from the skin.

Dispose of the used needle: Place the used needle in a sharps disposal container as instructed by your healthcare provider or local regulations. Do not recap the needle.

Store or dispose of the medication: Follow the specific storage instructions provided for Semaglutide.

It is essential to carefully follow your healthcare provider's guidance on Semaglutide dosing, administration, and any additional instructions they provide.

Are there foods to avoid while taking Ozempic® (Semaglutide)

There are no specific foods that need to be completely avoided while taking Semaglutide. However, it is generally recommended to follow a balanced and healthy diet as part of overall diabetes management.When managing diabetes or any weight-related concerns, it is important to focus on a nutritious diet that includes a variety of foods from different food groups. Here are some general dietary recommendations that may be helpful:

    • Carbohydrates: Choose complex carbohydrates such as whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes. These foods provide fiber and have a lower impact on blood sugar levels compared to refined carbohydrates.
    • Proteins: Include lean sources of protein, such as skinless poultry, fish, beans, lentils, tofu, and low-fat dairy products. Protein helps with satiety and can assist in maintaining muscle mass.
    • Fats: Opt for healthier fats like those found in nuts, seeds, avocados, and olive oil. Limit saturated and trans fats, which are commonly found in fried and processed foods.
    • Portion control: Pay attention to portion sizes to help manage calorie intake and weight. It's important to work with a healthcare professional or registered dietitian to determine appropriate portion sizes for your individual needs.
    • Sugary foods and beverages: Limit the consumption of sugary foods and beverages, as they can significantly impact blood sugar levels. Opt for sugar-free or low-sugar alternatives when possible.
    • Hydration: Stay hydrated by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. Limit the intake of sugary drinks and alcohol.

Remember that dietary recommendations may vary for each individual, depending on factors such as personal health goals, existing medical conditions, and medication usage. It's always best to consult with a healthcare professional or a registered dietitian who can provide personalized dietary guidance based on your specific needs and goals.

What are some common mistakes people make when they try to lose weight?

When trying to lose weight, people may make some common mistakes that can hinder their progress. Here are a few examples:

    • Setting Unrealistic Goals: Setting overly ambitious or unrealistic weight loss goals can lead to disappointment and frustration. It's important to set achievable and sustainable goals that align with your individual circumstances and health needs.
    • Relying on Fad Diets: Falling for the allure of fad diets that promise quick weight loss can be counterproductive. Many of these diets are restrictive, nutritionally imbalanced, and difficult to maintain in the long term. It's better to focus on adopting a balanced and sustainable eating plan.
    • Ignoring Portion Sizes: Portion control plays a significant role in weight management. It's common to underestimate portion sizes, leading to unintentional overeating. Being mindful of portion sizes and learning to listen to your body's hunger and fullness cues can be beneficial.
    • Neglecting Physical Activity: Relying solely on dietary changes without incorporating regular physical activity can impede weight loss progress. Exercise helps burn calories, build muscle, and improve overall health. Finding activities you enjoy and making them a regular part of your routine is key.
    • Emotional Eating: Using food as a coping mechanism for stress, boredom, or emotions is a common pitfall. Emotional eating can lead to consuming excess calories and hinder weight loss efforts. Finding alternative ways to cope with emotions, such as practicing mindfulness, engaging in hobbies, or seeking support, can be helpful.
    • Lack of Consistency: Consistency is crucial for weight loss success. Skipping meals, inconsistent exercise routines, or frequent deviations from healthy eating patterns can disrupt progress. Building sustainable habits and making gradual, lasting changes are key to long-term success.
    • Not Seeking Professional Guidance: Attempting to lose weight without professional guidance can be challenging. Consulting with a healthcare professional, registered dietitian, or weight loss specialist can provide personalized advice, support, and strategies tailored to your needs and health conditions.

Remember, everyone's weight loss journey is unique, and it's essential to find an approach that works best for you. Focus on making sustainable lifestyle changes, being patient with yourself, and seeking support when needed.
