Semaglutide and Tirzepatide injections are FDA-approved GLP-1 agonist medications used to treat obesity and aid in dramatic weight loss. Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are both once-weekly injections that require no change in diet or lifestyle to produce weight loss results of greater than 50 lb in as little as 6 months. When used along with an individualized low-calorie, low-fat diet and exercise program to help with weight loss, overweight adults who may also have high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol see significant progress across all health markers. Semaglutide and Tirzepatide injections are a class of medications called glucagon-like-peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists, although Tirzepatide has enhanced effects as a glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) agonist that produce more drastic weight loss results.
Here at Vitality Health and Wellness, we offer a comprehensive weight loss program to aid patients in achieving their weight loss goals. Through the use of Semaglutide or Tirzepatide injections, combined with Lipotropic injections to break down fat and increase metabolism, nutritional coaching to equip patients with the necessary resources to begin this safe and sustainable weight loss journey, and weekly in-clinic appointments to monitor progress and offer support, our patients are empowered to embark on this life changing journey towards a healthy lifestyle and a healthy weight.
With the Vitality Health and Wellness weight loss program, you will be closely monitored by our practitioner who can help you determine what dosage is right for you. Since you are being closely monitored on a weekly basis, our practitioner can make adjustments to your Semaglutide or Tirzepatide dose on an as-needed basis. This helps you see optimum results as your program is tailored to meet your unique needs.
We look forward to partnering with you on this journey to a healthier you!
Semaglutide and Tizepatide Therapy are FDA-approved weight loss medication therapies. The medications are administered once weekly via subcutaneous injection and produce an average weight loss of 50 pounds over 6 months of treatment.
When used for weight loss, Semaglutide and Tirzepatide slows the emptying of the stomach by binding to the receptors that are located in the lining of the stomach. The slower emptying of the stomach sends a signal of fullness to the brain. This helps reduce your food intake and decreases your appetite, two things that are necessary for weight loss, because you feel full and are less likely to want to eat.
Weight loss depends on duration of treatment. The average Vitality Health and Wellness patient can expect to lose up to 30 pounds in the first three months of treatment, and 50 pounds after 6 months.
Semaglutide and Tirzepatide come in the form of a sterile liquid solution that is administered via subcutaneous injection once weekly.
The most common side-effect of Semaglutide is nausea and possibly other digestive issues, such as constipation, vomiting, and abdominal pain. But we take proactive measures to ensure that the chances of this happening to you are slim.
For your first month, we will start you at a lower dose of Semaglutide to allow your body to get used to it. We typically increase incrementally at month two and month three, however, everyone is different. The goal is for you to lose a few pounds a week with no nausea.
