Results of weight loss program
The data is in! Based on the results of our weight management program, our patients have lost an average of 7.7 pounds in only 4 weeks on the lowest, introductory dose of semaglutide!
We’ll continue to track all of our patients with surveys and follow up appointments to get the most complete “picture” of weight loss, but the initial results are very exciting. Keep in mind that every 28 days, our patients get the next higher dose of semaglutide in 4 prefilled syringes for their once-per-week injection.
Extreme weight loss
So with each higher dose, we should continue to see more and more weight loss. Remember that this is the average weight loss. We did have patients who lost a moderate amount but we also had patients losing over 15 pounds and even over 20 pounds in the first month! Pretty amazing and we wish everyone could see those same results.
It’s impossible to know for sure what makes one patient lose more than another but certainly diet, exercise and avoiding high carb and highly refined sugars helps. We’ll continue to track this data and publish it every month.
Where we get our semaglutide
We are getting semaglutide, the active ingredient in Ozempic and Wegovy, from a compounding pharmacy. These results would not be possible if the semaglutide we’re sourcing wasn’t a duplicate of the active ingredient found in the name brand drugs. And I don’t believe this large number of patients in our program would lose that much weight with diet and exercise alone in such a short period of time. So in other words, any doubts people may have about semaglutide from a compounding pharmacy should be put to rest.
Mounjaro (tirzepatide) on tap?
The compounding pharmacy we’re working with is also working on a duplicate of Mounjaro’s active ingredient, tirzepatide. Once that is available, we will offer it to our current and new patients since the data suggests an even greater appetite suppressant effect from Mounjaro due to the combination of a GLP-1 (glucagon like peptide) receptor agonist and GIP (glucose dependent insulinotropic polypeptide). Time will tell.
