Semaglutide Weight Loss Woodland, CA

Introduction to Semaglutide

Semaglutide is an injectable prescription medication used for treating type 2 diabetes and chronic weight management. It is similar to the hormone GLP-1 that occurs naturally in the body and helps control blood sugar and appetite. Semaglutide makes the body produce more insulin when needed and lowers blood sugar levels.

When used for weight loss, semaglutide curbs appetite allowing you to eat less while feeling full which leads to losing weight over time. Semaglutide should be used together with diet and exercise for chronic weight management.

We also provide personalized treatment for hormone deficiencies or imbalances contributing to weight gain resistance:

Diagnosing and Treating Hormone Deficiencies

Struggling with ongoing weight gain or inability to lose weight may signify an underlying metabolic or hormone issue causing an imbalance in the body. Our specialist team covers extensive lab testing and medical history evaluation to get to the root cause, which is key for then determining the proper treatment plan.

Common hormone deficiencies linked to stubborn weight include:

Low thyroid function

Low testosterone

High cortisol

Low vitamin D

Identifying and properly treating any hormone imbalance or nutrient deficiencies through prescription medications or lifestyle therapy removes that hurdle to optimizing metabolism for ongoing fat burning and weight loss results.

Treating The Root Causes of Weight Gain

Rather than suggestions to simply “eat less and exercise more” which fail most people over the long run, we dive deeper to find and resolve the root physiological and psychological causes of weight gain such as:

Imbalanced hunger signals

Emotional overeating

Fatigue and low motivation

Insulin resistance

By properly diagnosing and treating the specific causal factors with targeted prescription plans, nutritional support, fitness guidance and psychology services, patients can finally get out of the weight loss battleground.

We partner with each client to develop highly personalized plans aimed at addressing root causes of weight gain by optimizing fat burning hormones and overcoming the emotional, metabolic or neurological hurdles that have continued the frustrating cycle of weight struggles. This multi-faceted approach is the key to long term success.
