Medical weight loss is an incredible journey towards improving your health, and it’s even better when you have the support and expertise of a caring healthcare professional by your side. For over 25 years, Dr. Aurora DeJuliis has been compassionately educating and empowering individuals to make informed choices about their nutrition and lifestyle habits. Dr. DeJuliis has extensive training in the field of weight management and prescribing weight loss medication, including the highly effective semaglutide (Wegovy®).
Zepbound (Tirzepatide) developed by Eli Lilly has been recently approved by the FDA for weight loss.
Zepbound is a prescription medicine that, like Semaglutide, is injected once a week.
How Does Semaglutide Work for Weight Loss?
Semaglutide belongs to a group of medications known as incretin mimetics. These medications assist the pancreas in releasing the appropriate amount of insulin when blood sugar levels are elevated. Incretin mimetics also have the ability to slow down the digestion process in the stomach, leading to reduced appetite and subsequent weight loss.
Semaglutide injections (Wegovy) are prescribed to obese adults or overweight adults who may also have conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, or high cholesterol. These injections are used in combination with a personalized low-calorie, low-fat diet and exercise program to aid in weight loss.
How to Maximize Your Results With Semaglutide
Wegovy can be a helpful, life-changing tool for managing weight, but it is important to use it alongside a healthy lifestyle and nutrition plan.
Maintaining a well-balanced diet is important when using Wegovy as it ensures that your body receives all the necessary nutrients for optimal functioning. Additionally, it provides support for the weight loss and blood sugar control benefits of the medication, potentially reducing any undesirable side effects.
Together, you and Dr. DeJuliis will work as a team to ensure that you are set up for success throughout your weight loss journey.
