At the Cosmetic Gynecology Center of San Antonio, we understand that weight loss has long been a challenging journey for San Antonio area women, often fraught with confusion and frustration. However, medical advancements through innovative solutions now offer new hope to women facing weight issues. One such breakthrough is the use of Semaglutide Sublingual, a cutting-edge medication that has shown promising results in supporting weight loss.
Read further to explore the effectiveness of Semaglutide Sublingual in aiding women's weight loss and how our Semaglutide Sublingual weight loss program for women in San Antonio, Boerne, Kerrville, San Marcos and surrounding areas in Texas can be structured to empower women to achieve their health and wellness goals.
Semaglutide (the active ingredient in Ozempic and Wegovy) is a medication initially approved for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. However, studies have shown that it also has a substantial impact on weight management. This injectable GLP-1 receptor agonist has now been developed into a sublingual form, providing a more convenient and accessible option for weight loss.
The sublingual administration involves placing the medication under the tongue, where it is rapidly absorbed into the bloodstream, bypassing the need for injections. This method not only makes it more user-friendly but also enhances its effectiveness as it ensures better bioavailability.
Clinical trials have revealed the remarkable potential of Semaglutide Sublingual in supporting weight loss among women. The trials demonstrated that women who took Semaglutide Sublingual, in conjunction with a balanced diet and exercise, experienced significant weight loss compared to those who followed the same lifestyle changes without the medication. Findings, published in The Lancet (June 2023), show participants in the phase 3 clinical trial lost 15% of their body weight, on average, after 68 weeks.
The mechanism of action involves the medication's impact on the brain's appetite-regulating center. Semaglutide Sublingual helps women feel fuller for longer, reduces food cravings, and curbs overeating tendencies. Additionally, it regulates glucose and insulin levels, making it beneficial for individuals with prediabetes or insulin resistance.
Most common side effects are headaches, nausea, vomiting, upset stomach, diarrhea, tiredness, dizziness, or constipation. However, most patients have no side effects at all. Initial side effects usually lessen as you continue to use the medication.
The ideal patient would have a BMI of 27 or more. Patients who are not a candidate for Semaglutide are patients with a history of diabetes or medullary thyroid cancer. Patients who have a personal family history of Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Syndrome-type 2 will likely not be candidates.
Not necessarily, although you will experience improved results with the addition of dietary modification, exercise, getting enough sleep and, of course, stress management. The long-term benefits will far exceed that obtained with the medication alone.
