Is this real medication?

Actual weight lost is dependent on a number of factors but many clients lose around 5% of their initial body weight. Over 12 weeks, it can be as high as 10%. This equates to a weight loss of 10–20 pounds for a 200 pound person.Everyone is different though and the most successful patients also work hard to make diet and lifestyle changes.
How soon will I receive my medication?
Overall, most clients receive their medication within 1 week from when they speak to the provider.

Are these medications proven weight loss treatments?
Yes. Semaglutide, the drug used in Wegovy and Ozempic, has been shown to support weight loss and long-term weight management in multiple studies.
Why do I need to have lab testing conducted and what lab work is needed?
Lab testing is part of the initial screening by your medical provider to ensure you are medically eligible for weight loss treatment. Biomarkers we test for include CMP, Fasting Lipid, TSH with Reflex to T4, Hemoglobin A1C, and Insulin.
What should I do if I feel nauseous?
We recommend that patients maintain the current dose, or lower the dose until symptoms resolve. All patients will be prescribed medication to alleviate nausea.
Why does my injection site feel bumpy?
A bump at the injection site means the medication was injected just under the skin instead into the fat tissue. You want to pinch on an area of fat, ensure the needle is inserted all the way, and keep the needle injected for a few seconds before pulling it out, so all the medication has been absorbed properly. To prevent bumps, scar tissue, or irritation, rotate injection sites.
Do I have to follow a specific diet?
You do not have to follow a specific, restrictive diet but you will lose more weight if you eat a well-balanced diet full of whole foods, lean proteins, healthy fats and fiber. You’ll create better habits that will also help you keep the weight off.
Do I need to exercise?
Our goal is to create healthy habits for long-term health. Exercise is not a requirement, but something we strongly encourage. Movement is key to good health and patients have reported that exercise becomes easier as they start losing weight.
Will I gain my weight back when I’m done?
This program will help you lose unwanted weight and put your body in weight-loss mode. Some patients continue for over six months depending on the amount of weight they want to lose. Your team will create a maintenance plan for you once you reach your goal weight, but like everything else in life, it’s up to you. Most patients adopt a healthier lifestyle as they start shedding weight because they feel good and want to continue the new habits they have adopted.
