At Sahara West Urgent care & Wellness, we work with individual patient to tailor weight loss programs to help you safely lose weight and keep it off. We provide oral therapy and Semaglutide weekly injection weight loss. Weight challenges can sometimes be related to physical and mental issues that prevent people from losing the weight they want, and potentially causing the person to gain more weight as a result. We don’t just help you to manage your weight, but we also can help you with our primary care, wellness programs, and other comprehensive services to optimize your health.

Semaglutide Injections and oral therapy

What is semaglutide injection?

Semaglutide belongs to a class of medications known as glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists, or GLP-1 RAs. It mimics the GLP-1 hormone, released in the gut in response to eating.
One role of GLP-1 is to prompt the body to produce more insulin, which reduces blood sugar (glucose). For that reason, health care providers have used semaglutide for more than 15 years to treat Type 2 diabetes.
But GLP-1 in higher amounts also interacts with the parts of the brain that suppress your appetite and signal you to feel full. When used in conjunction with diet and exercise, it can cause significant weight loss — and a reduced risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease — in people who are obese or overweight.

Semaglutide injections for weight loss

Currently, semaglutide is only approved for weight loss under the brand name Wegovy. The typical dose for weight loss is 2.4 milligrams, administered weekly as subcutaneous (under the skin) injections.
But as interest in semaglutide for weight loss continues to grow, health care professionals are finding ways to manage the demand. Many prescribe other brands of semaglutide, such as Ozempic and Rybelsus, off-label (using a drug that is FDA-approved for a different reason).
“Many people use semaglutide off-label to help manage weight,” Dr. Surampudi says. “The demand has become so high, that now there is a shortage for people who need this medication to help manage their diabetes.”

How effective is semaglutide for weight loss in non-diabetics?

There have been several anti-obesity medications that help suppress appetite and achieve weight loss. But semaglutide performs on a new level.
An early study of 2,000 obese adults compared people using semaglutide plus a diet and exercise program with people who made the same lifestyle changes without semaglutide. After 68 weeks, half of the participants using semaglutide lost 15% of their body weight, and nearly a third lost 20%. Participants who incorporated only lifestyle changes lost about 2.4% of their weight.
Since then, additional studies have shown similar results. But they’ve also revealed that participants tend to regain the weight lost when they stop taking semaglutide.
“The fundamentals of obesity management will always be changes to diet and exercise,” Dr. Surampudi says. “But having anti-obesity medications is another tool in the toolbox — depending on the person’s clinical history.” 

What are the side effects of semaglutide injections?

The side effects of semaglutide are typically mild — especially when compared to the complications associated with overweight and obesity.
People taking semaglutide for weight loss may experience:

Gastrointestinal issues are the most common complaint among people just starting semaglutide. But you may be able to reduce the side effects by beginning on a lower dose and then slowly increasing the amount you take.

Who should (and should not) take semaglutide for weight loss?

The FDA recommends Wegovy for weight loss if you meet one of the following criteria:

Avoid semaglutide if you have:

If you’re considering semaglutide for weight loss, your first step should be consulting your primary care physician (PCP). They know your personal and family medical history and can guide you in the best treatment for your condition. If you have diabetes and already take a different medication, talk to your physician about acceptable (and safe) combinations of diabetes medication.
