Medical weight-loss treatment plans are one of the most effective ways to safely lose weight that you will be able to keep off. With the support and medical supervision provided by your healthcare provider, medical weight-loss treatment plans typically consist of a balance of regular exercise, lower-calorie dieting, and weight-loss medication to help patients get back to the healthiest versions of themselves. Dieting and exercising on your own can help to maintain health, but life is busy and stressful and maintaining a healthy weight continues to become more difficult as we age. There are many health threats associated with obesity, to the point where medical intervention becomes necessary. To make sure that you are able to lose weight in a safe, healthy environment, speak to a healthcare provider today to learn what a medical weight-loss treatment plan that combines exercise, diet, and Wegovy can do for you.
Along with generally increased difficulty associated with physical functioning, obesity comes with a long list of side effects, most of which are fairly serious and lead to an increased risk of death. Many people will start to experience increased aches and pains in their bodies due to excess weight and will suffer from sleep apnea or other breathing problems. Over time, obesity can lead to other health conditions such as high blood pressure (hypertension), high cholesterol, type 2 diabetes, gallbladder disease, coronary heart disease, and osteoarthritis. With all of these conditions comes an increased risk of stroke and many different forms of cancer. As well, many patients who are diagnosed with obesity are more at risk of developing mental illnesses including depression and anxiety.
Wegovy is a semaglutide injection that is prescribed typically as part of a medical weight-loss treatment plan. It works by mimicking a hormone that we produce naturally that communicates with the brain to decrease your appetite to help reduce the amount of food you are consuming. It is only recommended for use on patients who are diagnosed by a medical professional as obese and can only be prescribed as a part of a medical weight-loss plan by a medical professional. Some side effects of Wegovy include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, stomach pain, or low blood sugar.
Wegovy works by decreasing your appetite slowly over time (each dose will increase slightly) to help you to consume fewer calories, allowing for weight loss to occur. It is only to be used as part of a medical weight-loss program in combination with dietary recommendations and physical exercise levels that have been recommended by experts. Regular check-ups will be required with a physician to ensure that the treatment is working as it should be and that the dosage can continue to be slowly increased as originally prescribed. It should be increased in dosage slowly as Wegovy can cause side effects if taken in too high of a dosage before the body is used to it being in its system. If you are experiencing any of the possible side effects, it is important to speak to your physician to ensure that Wegovy is still the right medication used in your medical weight-loss plan for you.
Wegovy has been approved for use in medical weight-loss treatment plans for those who are considered obese (have a BMI of 30 or higher) or for those who are considered overweight and have at least one weight-related health condition (BMI of 27 or higher). Some weight-related conditions include type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.
Wegovy is also only recommended for use as part of a medical weight-loss treatment plan, so patients must also be able to maintain a lower caloric diet as well as a recommended physical activity regimen to ensure that the weight-loss plan is going to be healthy and sustainable for them. Wegovy requires weekly injections that slowly increase in dosage, so the patient must also be able to either administer the injection themselves or have access to a pharmacist or someone who is qualified to administer the injections reliably every single week to ensure that the treatment and medication are as effective as possible.
