What happens during medically supervised weight loss?

There are multiple weight loss plans you can choose from based on your budget and needs.

Melissa prescribes hormone therapy or appetite-suppressing medication, if needed, to make your weight loss journey as simple and effective as possible. 

You also have the option of vitamin B12 injections, methionine inositol choline (MIC) injections to break down fat, IV nutrition therapy and more.

You might need a blood test to evaluate your hormone levels, cholesterol, blood sugar, and other indicators of possible disease risk factors

 We can help you manage diabetes, high blood pressure, or other diseases when necessary. It’s important to take any medications exactly as directed.

What are appetite suppressants?

Appetite suppressants, such as semaglutide, phentermine, and Contrave®, aid in weight loss in a variety of ways. They may help you feel full after eating fewer calories, reduce your appetite, or even aid in fat burning. 

Such suppressants make it easier to effectively reach your goal weight and maintain it long-term. They make the perfect addition to a medically supervised weight loss plan.

Are appetite suppressants right for me?

Appetite suppressants are meant for use in combination with a nutritious meal plan and regular exercise program. You might take oral medicines or receive a weight loss injection. It’s important to take the medicine exactly as directed.

To find out which appetite suppressants are best for you, Melissa reviews your medical history and asks about your lifestyle habits. She prescribes you a medication that works best with your unique needs. We can adjust your medication or nutrition plan whenever needed.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. It is a synthetic version of a naturally occurring hormone in the body that helps regulate blood sugar levels. Semaglutide was originally developed to treat type 2 diabetes. However, it has also shown promise as a treatment for weight loss.

How does it work for weight loss?

Semaglutide influences multiple systems in the body to promote weight loss:

  • Appetite Suppression
  • Slows Gastric Emptying
  • Reduces Caloric Intake
  • Improves Insulin Sensitivity

Clinical Trials and Effectiveness:

In clinical trials, Semaglutide has demonstrated significant efficacy for weight loss. In studies like the STEP trials (Semaglutide Treatment Effect in People with obesity), participants experienced substantial weight loss compared to a placebo group. Some individuals achieved weight loss of up to 15% or more of their initial body weight.


Semaglutide for weight loss is typically administered as a once-weekly injection, we offer these injections in the office as well as at home for self administration. The specific dosage may vary depending on the individual's needs.

Potential Side Effects:

Common side effects may include nausea, diarrhea, and other gastrointestinal symptoms. These effects tend to decrease over time as the body adjusts to the medication. However, it's important to consult with a healthcare provider about any concerns.

Safety Considerations:

Semaglutide is generally considered safe, but it may not be suitable for everyone. It's crucial to discuss any existing medical conditions, medications, or concerns with a healthcare provider before starting treatment.

Combination with Lifestyle Changes:

For the best results, Semaglutide is often prescribed in conjunction with a comprehensive weight loss program, which may include dietary changes, exercise, and behavioral modifications.

Long-term Use:

Semaglutide is intended for long-term use to help individuals achieve and maintain their weight loss goals. It's important to follow a healthcare provider's guidance for continued success.

Remember, Semaglutide is a prescription medication, and it should only be taken under the supervision of a qualified healthcare professional. They will evaluate your individual health status and determine if Semaglutide is a suitable option for you.

Always consult with a healthcare provider for personalized advice and recommendations regarding weight loss treatments and medication.
