Compound semiglutide is a synthetic peptide used in the treatment of type 2 diabetes and can aid in weight loss. It mimics the hormone GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), which helps regulate blood sugar levels and appetite. 
Benefits Include: insulin secretion, reduction of glucagon release, and slowing gastric emptying, leading to improved glycemic control and weight loss.

A healthy lifestyle includes a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and whole grains to provide essential nutrients. Regular physical activity, such as walking, swimming, or cycling, helps maintain a healthy weight and reduces the risk of chronic diseases. Adequate sleep and stress management are also crucial for overall well-being and mental health.

 

Our nurses offer personalized nutrition guidance by first assessing your dietary habits and health needs, then recommending a balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins, and healthy fats. They educate on portion control, mindful eating, and the importance of staying hydrated, while advising on how to reduce intake of processed foods, added sugars, and excess sodium.

Semiglutide Frequently Asked Questions

"Foods to avoid when using semaglutide:

- spicy foods.
- fatty protein cuts.
- baked goods, candy, and ice cream.
- beverages with added sugar, such as regular soda, juice, and energy drinks."
Apr 4, 2024 - Food List When Taking Semaglutide and What to Avoid - Healthline
 
"To optimize your experience with semaglutide, try eating smaller, frequent meals throughout the day. This can help minimize any potential stomach discomfort and promote a feeling of fullness with less food. It's also a good idea to keep some over-the-counter medications handy in case you experience nausea or heartburn."
"In the primary study of semaglutide for obesity, people lost weight as early as 4 weeks, about an average of 2% or 4.4 pounds,' says Beverly Tchang, MD, Ro advisor and assistant professor of Clinical Medicine at Weill Cornell Medicine in New York."
"Semaglutide can begin to kick in within the first week. People often notice changes in their appetite and weight during the first few weeks of use. Most weight loss will typically occur within the first 4 to 5 months."
"Concerns have been raised regarding the long-term implications of semaglutide usage, including potential risks for pancreatitis, kidney issues, and the development of certain types of cancers. The dark side of semaglutide, while relatively rare, underscores the importance of a thorough and personalized medical assessment prior to and during treatment"
"High-sugar foods can cause a spike in blood glucose levels, making it challenging for semaglutide to do its job effectively. Moreover, consuming too much sugar can lead to weight gain and other health issues."
"'Within about two weeks, I had already lost a few pounds,' Schorr said. 'Everyone thought I looked like I was losing weight in just the first few days.' Schorr said she lost 50 pounds over the course of 11 months."
Mar 16, 2023 - ABC News 
"Eating certain foods while taking semaglutide may increase or cause GI-related side effects, such as nausea, bloating, and diarrhea. The drug slows digestion, leaving patients feeling fuller longer. However, the longer foods stay in the stomach, the more likely it is that they'll cause discomfort."
Sep 13, 2023 - Healthline.com
"The main reasons you're not losing weight on semaglutide might be that you're not eating in a calorie deficit, you've hit a weight-loss plateau, or the current dose that you're on isn't high enough to lower your hunger to the point where you're eating less."
"The most common side effects of semaglutide are nausea and vomiting. These side effects are usually mild and go away after a few days or weeks of treatment. Other possible side effects include diarrhea, constipation, headache, dizziness, fatigue, and low blood sugar levels."
"Semaglutide isn't known to interact with alcohol. However, this medication and alcohol both lower your blood sugar, so drinking alcohol during your weight loss treatment may cause severe hypoglycemia."
"Absorption: Subcutaneous semaglutide has high bioavailability (89%), with peak concentration achieved within 1 to 3 days of initiation. [28] Achieving steady-state exposure typically occurs after 4 to 5 weeks of weekly administration, demonstrating a proportional increase with escalating doses up to 2.4 mg."
