At GEMS, we use compounded

Semaglutide which helps with your overall feeling of fullness while eating. It works by mimicking the effects of the hormone glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1). GLP-1 is naturally released in the body after we eat and plays a role in controlling hunger and helping us feel satisfied. Semaglutide mimics the effects of GLP-1, without having to actually eat food, so it can help reduce cravings for unhealthy foods. It also helps burn more calories by slowing down digestion. When taken as directed, semaglutide can help you lose weight. Studies have shown that people who take semaglutide regularly can lose up to 8% of their body weight over the course of 12 weeks. It can also help lower blood glucose levels in people with type 2 diabetes, reduce cholesterol and triglycerides and improve other metabolic markers associated with obesity. It is important to talk to your doctor before starting semaglutide, as it should not be used in place of healthy lifestyle habits such as eating a balanced diet and exercising regularly. Additionally, semaglutide may cause nausea during the first few days of use. Our Nurse Practitioner, can help your symptoms stay under control.
