The Science Behind Semaglutide and Weight Loss

Exploring the newest advancements in full body health through semaglutide injection treatments.

At the core of regenerative medicine, the doctors at Fraum have created a world of treatments around peptides that benefit all the ways you can improve your ability to “live the life you love.”  

Peptide injections aid recovery from injury or illness, muscle soreness and symptom relief, improvements to depression and mental health, sexual health and hormonal changes – the smallest building block to restoration, they prompt your body’s own re-building capabilities.

Over the next few months, we’re unpacking a few of these areas, learning more about the benefits, the warnings about DIY peptide treatments and prescriptions, related therapies and how the Fraum Center is here to move you toward your goals and a potential you may not even know you have.

INTRODUCING SEMAGLUTIDE

One area of broad and long-standing interest that has seen a major new development in just the past two years is the science behind semaglutide and weight loss. Considered a monumental advancement in anti-obesity medication, semaglutide was originally exclusively administered to manage type-2 diabetes.

Semaglutide changed the psychology of treating weight loss and obesity as a “chronic metabolic disease” rather than a mere lifestyle issue. Lifestyle and nutrition can’t be ignored but for clients who have a handle on those and are not seeing the whole health change they need, semaglutide injections have been proven to deliver enhanced results, making consistent discovery headlines now 2 years after its FDA approval.

Studies that lead to FDA clearance compared adult patients combining semaglutide with specific lifestyle regimens in exercise and a balanced diet (resulting in losing 15% of body weight) with those who kept to those lifestyle disciplines without the injections (resulting in only 2.4% weight loss).

WHY IT MATTERS

A vital reminder, one of the reasons we’re passionate about helping you to get your weight management under control is because the weight we carry and why we carry it are not aesthetic issues as much as they’re ability-killers and contribute to the deterioration of your overall body functions from joint pain to heart health and several systemic stops in between.

HOW IT WORKS

This prescription injectable works as a simulation of the body’s GLP-1 receptors – the hormones that deliver the “full” message to the brain. Mirroring appetite suppressants, it works with slow GLP-1 receptors and affects a patient’s ability – not just desire – to overeat. It slows digestive functions which then prolongs a patient’s sensation of being “full and satisfied.” Part of this function is tied to why it’s a seminal diabetic mediation, stabilizing the body’s production of insulin and therefore managing the liver function, blood pressure, and blood sugar levels.

WHO IT’S FOR

Of course, all treatments are not for all people and there are a range of patients who would require a different approach – especially patients who are or could become pregnant or still breastfeeding, as well as diabetic patients who would need to discuss “acceptable and safe drug combinations” considering their primary course of treatment.

Knowing these exceptions (and others) versus knowing the patients for whom these injectables are the relief and new, healthy direction for which you’ve been searching, is just one of the many ways that the personal one-on-one access and attention you receive from us at the Fraum Center is not only beneficial, that relationship and dialogue is imperative to the outcome of your care.

It's why we function the way we do at Fraum and why we build relationships with our patients as you build your strength and recovery from the ailments and limitations that are holding you back from living the life you love, and the life you deserve.
