FAQs: Semaglutide in East Syracuse, NY
What is semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. As a prescription medication for chronic weight management, semaglutide helps reduce caloric intake in adults with a body mass index (BMI) considered above the healthy range.
How does semaglutide work?
Semaglutide works by increasing insulin production, which lowers blood sugar levels, while inhibiting glucagon secretion, which raises blood sugar levels. With a series of treatments, semaglutide injections can help curb your appetite and aid in overall weight loss. Results of this treatment vary with each individual.
Who is not a good candidate for semaglutide?
Semaglutide injections are not suitable for those who are currently pregnant or nursing, are taking any medications related to lowering blood sugar levels, have a family history of thyroid cancer, have a personal history of pancreatitis or liver disease or do not fall within the BMI requirements. During your consultation, we will determine if semaglutide is right for you based on your blood work, medical history, BMI and other factors.
How often do I give myself semaglutide injections?
Semaglutide must be injected in the subcutaneous tissue once a week to offer significant, long-term results. CNY Cosmetic and Reconstructive Surgery will provide direction for administering this prescribed medication.
