      Wegovy® (Semaglutide) Medical Weight Loss

      Do you know the 8 reasons Wegovy is making headlines, and why so many people are interested in using it for weight loss?

      1. Semaglutide (Wegovy) is a GLP-1 weekly injection that is FDA approved for weight loss treatment, and has been called a “Game Changer” in the fight against obesity.
      2. Slows stomach emptying and makes you feel satisfied with smaller amounts of food--so you eat fewer calories and feel fuller longer.
      3. Helps you produce more insulin, reducing the body's ability to turn food into fat--all while reducing your appetite and cravings.
      4. Clinical trials have shown that patients using Wegovy lost 15-20% of their total body weight.
      5. Semaglutide can also lower blood sugar, lower blood pressure, and reduce triglyceride levels--our patients love the benefits.
      6. Semaglutide is made even more effective as part of PrimeHealthMD's comprehensive physician led and personalized weight loss approach--imagine all the help you need and friendly accountability.
      7. Wegovy was approved by the US FDA as a weight loss medication in June 2021--but it has been available in other forms since 2017.

      Whatever the reason you yourself might have for being interested in Wegovy, we respect your privacy, and you’ll find we’ll work with you to achieve your goals starting from your very first visit!

      Has Research Shown Wegovy To Be Effective For Weight Loss?

      Yes! Wegovy is considered by many to be the most effective FDA-approved weight loss medication for long-term weight management.

      The New York Times published an article in February 2021 declaring Wegovy a “game-changer” after clinical trials were completed, and the results were in.

      Here are the results showed from the 68-week medical study of 2,000 adults living with obesity or excess weight with related medical problems:

      35 LBS
      (or 15% of their total body weight)
      while taking Wegovy

      We’ve found that PrimeHealthMD patients routinely lose at least 10% of their body weight.

      Am I Eligible to Be Helped by Wegovy?

      The answer is: it’s very likely you are!

      Wegovy helps you lose weight and keep it off if you’re an adult who is:

      • Living with obesity (BMI ≥30)
      • Living with excess weight (BMI ≥27) and weight-related medical problems (such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol)

      Weight loss medicine such as Wegovy may not be right for everyone. Depending on your needs and your insurance coverage, our doctors may prescribe a different medication.

      You can find out more about your eligibility by scheduling your FREE consultation with us.

      Does Wegovy Have Side Effects? Are They Serious?

      Wegovy (semaglutide) is generally safe and well-tolerated.

      It is NOT a type of insulin or a substitute for insulin, and NOT a stimulant.

      Side effects are possible with Wegovy, just as they are with other medications. Generally, side effects are mild and disappear as soon as your body adapts to the medication.

      Here’s what has been found:

      • The potential for side effects can be minimized by gradually increasing the dosage over time.
      • Nausea was the most frequently reported adverse effect. The nausea can disappear over time as you continue to take Wegovy. Researchers found that participants were rarely forced to stop taking the medication due to nausea.
      • Constipation was another negative effect Wegovy users reported experiencing more frequently than others. However, again, these investigations did not find that constipation led to users discontinuing Wegovy.

      If you have concerns regarding side effects, let’s talk. Our staff can fully and transparently inform you of these possible side effects, and also provide alternatives as needed.

      We invite you to call us or start by scheduling your initial FREE consultation--we’ll walk you through everything you need to know.

      If I Move Forward With Wegovy, How Does the Process Work?

      If you and our staff decide to move forward, here’s how it works:

      At your initial appointment, we’ll do a lab draw right in one of our offices for lab testing. No need to schedule at a 3rd party lab.

      Weight Loss Patient

      “If you are mentally tired of being tired of having the weight that you are carrying around - that you’ve been carrying since you had kids, or you got married, or you had a lose and you started eating more this is the place to come. They can help you. They helped me.”

      Weight Loss Patient

      “I’ve been on every single diet that is possible, all of them, and I was able to lose weight on a lot of them, but I was never able to maintain the weight loss. With this plan, or this lifestyle, I was able to keep it off.”

      • Have you ever talked to someone that you can share your true feelings with, that wants to understand you deeply, and that works with you step-by-step to answer your questions and arm you with a proven process to reach your goals?
      • Have you ever had a true medical assessment for the factors that contribute to weight gain and weight loss?

      Medical Weight Loss FAQ

      Medical weight loss programs are personalized, comprehensive solutions for men and women who are seeking support with their weight loss goals and who want long-term results. Unlike fad diets or subscription exercise programs, medically supervised weight loss addresses all facets of a patient’s situation. It enables them to achieve a healthy body in a sustainable way.

      No. We are NOT an hCG clinic. hCG is ineffective and is NOT approved by the FDA for weight loss. The risks of utilizing hCG off-label for weight loss are well documented. At PrimeHealthMD, we will partner with you to achieve sustainable behavioral and lifestyle change.

      We are in-network with several major carriers, such as United Healthcare, Aetna, Cigna, Humana, and Anthem BCBS. In most cases, our services are covered, but it will ultimately depend on your individual plan coverage. We currently can not accept Medicare, Medicaid, Ambetter or CareSource.

      The degree of results depends on the patient. Each patient’s weight loss program is custom-tailored to match their needs and goals. Whether you need help losing a few stubborn pounds that have been lingering since pregnancy or you want to achieve a dramatic weight loss transformation of 100 pounds or more, a medically supervised weight loss program can help.

      The length of time you stay on any weight loss program depends on how much weight you wish to lose and – most importantly – how motivated you are. Our program is not a quick fix!

      You will transition from the initial phase to a maintenance phase as you lose weight. Our goal is to guide you in establishing healthy eating habits that you can follow beyond our programs throughout your life.

      After you reach your goal weight, you’ll enter the Maintenance Phase of the program. You’ll continue to visit with your weight loss specialist monthly. These visits can be in-clinic or performed remotely with virtual visits.

      Our Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM) devices provide important metabolic data to help us establish and maintain a healthy lifestyle for you. This ensures you retain successful weight loss and have the best eating, exercise, and behavioral strategies to keep off the weight for good!

      During the initial, acute weight loss phase, it is required that you follow up weekly. This weekly follow-up allows for optimal results. In addition, our teaching/counseling often leads to “fine-tuning” the program according to your specific needs.

      Overall, weekly follow-ups are a MAJOR factor for the success we see at PrimeHealthMD. Typical follow-up appointments last from 10-15 minutes and include weigh-in, vital signs, vitamin injection, and one-on-one counseling with a provider.

      We offer a multitude of prescription medications to aid in your weight loss. Whether you are a candidate for weight loss medication or not is assessed at your initial appointment. Our medication classes include, but are not limited to, stimulants, antidepressants, combination therapies such as Qsymia, GLP-1s, oral hypoglycemics, and fiber supplements that mitigate hunger.

      We offer intramuscular B12 injections with lipotropics (fat burners), increasing energy and expediting fat loss. In addition, we offer B1/B6 injections which mitigate cravings and water retention. Intramuscular injections are recommended in the initial, acute weight loss phase. Patients are transitioned to sublingual supplements and long-term weight management medications, such as Contrave, at our discretion upon entering the maintenance phase.
