Semaglutide Q&A

How does semaglutide work?

Semaglutide is an injectable drug to assist with medical weight loss. It can also treat diabetes in some cases.

At STL Medical Weight Loss, Dr. Moleski often prescribes semaglutide as part of a comprehensive telehealth care plan. It works by stimulating your pancreas to produce more of the hormone insulin, which initiates the transfer of blood glucose (sugar) into your cells to be used as energy. Too much sugar in your blood can lead to numerous health complications. 

Semaglutide also slows down your rate of digestion, which keeps you feeling full for longer after a meal. It also suppresses your appetite, so following a low-calorie balanced diet is easier, according to Dr. Moleski’s recommendations. 

How can semaglutide improve my health and wellness?

STL Medical Weight Loss relies on semaglutide to help patients reach two distinctive goals:

Diabetes management

Semaglutide is FDA-approved to treat type 2 diabetes, a condition that arises from insulin resistance. When you take semaglutide to treat type 2 diabetes, you lower your chances of experiencing serious diabetes complications like neuropathy, vision loss, and even limb amputation. 

Weight loss

The FDA has also approved semaglutide as a weight loss injection, as it can help you lose up to 15% of your body weight. It works best for weight loss when you also consistently follow a nutritious and balanced diet, get some exercise, and follow other essential recommendations for a healthy lifestyle.

Dr. Moleski helps you decide if semaglutide is an appropriate addition to your telehealth care plan. 

What should I expect while taking semaglutide?

STL Medical Weight Loss provides telehealth care, meaning all your appointments are conducted remotely using your personal computer, phone, or tablet. Starting with a consultation, Dr. Moleski structures your program according to your goals and health. 

Dr. Moleski starts you on a low dose of semaglutide and teaches you how to administer the injections on your own. He increases your dose around four weeks later, then again after another four weeks. 

You should inject the medication into your arm, thigh, or stomach, but rotate the injection site with every dose.
