Let’s be honest: weight loss is a difficult journey. For some, proper dieting and exercise becomes a routine that yields great results. However, for others, even making all of the right decisions in eating and activity still doesn’t result in a desirable outcome. Get Well Clinic, a weight loss clinic with multiple locations in Northeast Harris County and College Station, is pleased to offer semaglutide—a powerful medication that can make a tremendous difference in your weight loss efforts.
Semaglutide is an FDA-approved, once-a-week medication that has seen an increase in usage to help adults that are having difficulty in their weight loss journey. When administered in conjunction with proper dieting and exercise, this medication has been proven to help people lose weight.

What is semaglutide and how can it help College Station and Humble weight loss patients?
Semaglutide is a medication that is designed to mimic naturally occurring hormones such as GLP-1 that are released in your digestive tract after you eat. This hormone is the reason why you feel “full” after a meal—it plays an essential role in your appetite as well as your digestion of food. Semaglutide works the same way.
In short, semaglutide slows down how fast food leaves your stomach, thus reducing your appetite. This is different from other weight loss medications, which typically have stimulants to help curb a desire for food.
Semaglutide is ideally used in conjunction with a low calorie diet and increased physical activity. Semaglutide cannot take the place of proper dieting and exercise.
How does Get Well Clinic administer semaglutide to Humble and College Station weight loss patients?
Semaglutide is injected under your skin, with a dosage that is determined by various factors including your body mass index (BMI), your biological sex, and your age. Your regimen will be determined by your weight loss goals, but your dosage will be increased gradually every four weeks.
Patients have reported losing anywhere between 25 to as much as 50 pounds over the course of their semaglutide treatment. As it should be noted, your results may vary.
Due to this medication regulating how fast food exits your stomach, you may be subject to side effects such as nausea or vomiting.
