Semaglutide Weight Loss

Lose up to 20% or more of your body weight when combined with a NuYou weight loss program

Shed those unwanted pounds and keep them off for good.

Before its introduction as a highly effective long-term weight management solution, semaglutide (Ozempic) was used to treat type 2 diabetes. Physicians observed that while Ozempic increased insulin production and reduced blood sugar levels, it also produced significant weight loss results. The makers of Ozempic, Novo Nordisk, conducted numerous clinical studies before offering their breakthrough weight loss medication called Wegovy, now FDA-approved for weight management.

Semaglutide is ideal for individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater or adults with a BMI of 27 and at least one complication related to body weight, such as hypertension, insulin resistance, high cholesterol, or heart disease.

If you’re struggling to lose those extra pounds, you are not alone.

Approximately 70 percent of adults in the US are considered overweight or obese. NuYou is excited to introduce Semaglutide, a breakthrough treatment that has changed the landscape of weight loss solutions, delivering real results that last. Take control of your weight loss journey and reduce your risk of future health complications!

Semaglutide is a type of medication called a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist, which mimics the hormone GLP-1 that the body naturally produces. The breakthrough weight loss solution lowers blood sugar levels after meals. It regulates blood sugar by stimulating glucose-dependent insulin secretion.

Semaglutide slows down the release of sugar into your blood, so your body burns more fat. It also delays stomach emptying, leaving you feeling fuller longer and limiting your overall calorie consumption.

Several clinical studies show that weekly Semaglutide injections are highly effective at promoting weight loss. In one study, individuals treated with Semaglutide lost an average of 9-13 percent of their body weight over the course of a year.

Semaglutide is safe under medical supervision, producing far fewer side effects than most other weight loss medications. Some individuals report gastrointestinal upset, including nausea, stomach pain, diarrhea, or constipation. To avoid these side effects, we add vitamin B6 to your treatment. We also start you off at a low dosage of Semaglutide and slowly increase it over time until we reach the ideal dosage for weight loss.

If you have type-1 diabetes or pancreatitis or if you or a family member have a history of thyroid cancer, we may recommend other weight loss solutions. Make sure to let us know about any health concerns to determine whether Semaglutide is suitable for you.

Semaglutide is a diabetes medication used to control blood sugar. It may also reduce the risk of heart attack, stroke and other serious complications of type 2 diabetes or heart or blood vessel disease. It works by increasing the amount of insulin in your bloodstream, reducing the blood sugar levels of a person who has trouble regulating. Though semaglutide may be used to treat diabetes, it’s not insulin. It’s a medication that can be used to help insulin do its job and lower blood sugar, but most patients are advised to use it as part of a comprehensive approach to treat type 2 diabetes, in conjunction with diet and exercise and any other medication or dietary supplement their doctor has approved.

What to Expect During the Treatment

Treatment with semaglutide starts with an assessment at NuYou. During your initial screening, our team will determine whether this medication is a good choice to help with your weight loss. Expect to get a physical exam and a medical history work-up. Our practitioners will assess your history of allergies and cancer and review other medications you may be taking. Your current body weight, history of weight loss attempts and body mass index will all factor into the decision to try semaglutide for losing weight.
The initial treatment will be a subcutaneous injection of a low dose of  semaglutide. This is a deliberately low dose, since possible side effects include a serious drop in blood sugar and it takes time to adjust. Over four weeks, the dose is gradually increased until you’re getting the full dosage  once a week. The injections are given on the same day each week for for a specified time determined with the practitioner. During your treatment period, the NuYou team will work with you to develop viable weight management strategies that go beyond the medication. Diet and exercise patterns, building healthy lifestyle patterns and a strong social support network are all part of your strategy to lose weight, and they’ll be included as part of your weight management plan.


The Semaglutide Treatment Effect in People With Obesity (STEP) trials have found that obese patients who take 2.4 mg of semaglutide weekly lose an average of 6% of their body weight by week 12. This roughly doubles to 12% of body weight lost by week 28.

If you’re taking semaglutide for chronic weight management, you can expect to see some results by the end of the first month, though the low initial doses of this drug treatment mean the initial results will be subtle and only appear a few weeks in. Larger amounts of excess weight come off in subsequent weeks, with the peak weight loss happening between weeks 8-28.

The FDA approved using semaglutide as an adjunct for weight management in adults without diabetes, but only under a doctor’s supervision and as part of a larger plan to treat obesity. When used in conjunction with evidence-based lifestyle interventions, such as improved diet and exercise, semaglutide injections can help treat obesity.

Semaglutide is only available with a medical provider’s prescription. Because of the risk of side effects or interactions with other prescription drugs and herbal products, you’ll need to check in with a practitioner on a regular basis as long as you’re using semaglutide as a weight loss medication.
