GLP-1 Weight Loss Management Program

There are many benefits to using GLP-1 for weight loss, including:

  • More effective weight loss: Clinical trials have shown that GLP-1 can help you lose more weight than other weight loss medications or programs.

  • Improved health markers: GLP-1 can also help improve your blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and cholesterol levels.

  • Reduced risk of chronic diseases: By losing weight and improving your health, you can reduce your risk of developing chronic diseases like type 2 diabetes, heart disease, and stroke.

Q: How long will I have to be on GLP-1?

A: The length of time a patient must take GLP-1 depends on the individual and the condition being treated. For type 2 diabetes, GLP-1 is typically used as a long-term treatment option to help control blood sugar levels. For obesity, treatment with GLP-1 is recommended for at least 12-16 weeks, but it may be continued for longer periods of time to achieve and maintain weight loss. 


Q: How is GLP-1 administered?

A: GLP-1 is administered as an injection once a week. It is available in a pre-filled syringe that patients can use to self-inject.


Q: How long does it take for GLP-1 to start working?

A: GLP-1 can start working within a few hours of the first injection, but it may take several weeks to see significant changes in blood sugar levels or weight.


Q: Is GLP-1 only for diabetics?

A: No, GLP-1 is not only for diabetics. It is also approved for overweight individuals with a BMI of 30 and above or 27 and above and one or more comorbidity. 


Q: How effective is GLP-1 for weight loss?

A: GLP-1 has been shown to be highly effective for weight loss. In clinical trials, patients taking GLP-1 lost an average of 14% of their body weight over 68 weeks, compared to 2.4% for patients taking a placebo. 


Q: Can GLP-1 be used in combination with other medications?

A: Yes, GLP-1 can be used in combination with other medications for the treatment of type 2 diabetes or obesity. However, it is important to discuss all medications, supplements, and health conditions with a healthcare provider before starting GLP-1.


Q: Can GLP-1 be used during pregnancy?

A: GLP-1 has not been studied in pregnant women, and its effects on pregnancy and the developing fetus are unknown. Women who are pregnant or planning to become pregnant should talk to their healthcare provider about the risks and benefits of GLP-1.


Q: Will GLP-1 give you all the side effects that have been documented?

A: It is possible to experience side effects while taking GLP-1, but not everyone will experience them.
It is essential to discuss any concerns or questions about potential side effects with a healthcare provider.
