What Is Semaglutide?

A powerful weight loss treatment, Semaglutide is a GLP-1 medication that functions much like the GLP-1 hormones naturally occurring in your body to regulate digestion and appetite. The hormones in this class of drugs signal the brain to suppress your appetite, so you eat less and feel full longer.


You or your doctor can administer Semaglutide injections via a pre-filled dosing pin or a syringe. Typical injections are made in the abdomen with tiny insulin-type needles. However, injection sites may also include the upper thigh or upper arm. Dr. Burgdorf will determine the correct dosage based on your body type and medical history.

Safety Precautions

Semaglutide offers a safe weight loss method as long as it is supervised by a qualified professional. The most commonly reported adverse effects happen due to increased dosage intake, so it is recommended that the dosage be increased gradually. In the rare event that you should experience nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea, let Dr. Burgdorf know right away.

Candidates for Semaglutide

Although anyone who has been diagnosed as obese can receive a typical Semaglutide dose, regardless of age, ethnicity, or BMI, ideal candidates are overweight adults with a body mass index of 30 or higher or suffering from any of the following diseases:

  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Dyslipidemia
  • Hypertension
  • Gastroesophageal reflux
  • Osteoarthritis

Most patients can safely use Semaglutide when monitored by a qualified physician. However, if you have been diagnosed with any of the following conditions, there may be an increased risk of complications, and Dr. Burgdorf may suggest a safer avenue for weight loss:

  • Thyroid cancer
  • Thyroid tumors
  • Uncontrolled diabetes
  • Pancreatitis

Weight Loss Results

While Semaglutide is a proven method for weight management, it works best when accompanied by an effective exercise routine and a balanced diet. With routine doses of Semaglutide over 68 weeks, patients can experience up to 16% decreased body fat when combined with a consistent diet and exercise regimen, making it one of the safest and most effective ways to lose significant weight.
