How Weight Affects Your Health
We’ve all heard and been taught how important it is to embrace healthy habits and maintain a healthy weight. But what exactly does that mean? How does weight loss positively affect your health?
Let’s look at the pros of losing weight:
- Reduced risk of different types of cancer
- Reduced risk of chronic conditions like heart disease and diabetes
- Improved mood and mental well-being
- Improved cardiovascular health
- Improved joint health and mobility
- Overall better quality of life
Knowing the positives of losing weight is great, but the reality is for some it’s more difficult to shed those extra pounds through diet and exercise alone.
And that’s okay! You have options.
One increasingly popular medical weight loss treatment that people everywhere are finding success with is Semaglutide.
Semaglutide Injection: A Safe and Effective Treatment Option
Originally developed to treat diabetes, Semaglutide is an injectable prescription medication now used by many as a weight loss treatment.
Semaglutide belongs to the class of drugs called GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) receptor agonists.
It works by stimulating insulin production and inhibiting glucagon (glucose) secretion which in turn helps manage weight by:
- Improving glycemic control
- Reducing appetite
- Controlling food cravings
- Reducing inflammation
- Enhancing metabolic function
Semaglutide is a once-weekly injection with each course of treatment varying depending on the amount of weight you want to lose; you and your provider will discuss a customized treatment plan that they will continue to monitor throughout your treatment course.
