It's crucial to note that Semaglutide isn't suitable for everyone, and we recommend consulting with our healthcare professionals before considering this medication, especially for those with certain medical histories.

Semaglutide, administered as a weekly subcutaneous injection, improves metabolic function without being a substitute for insulin. While not covered by insurance for non-diabetic patients, we offer a competitively priced compounded semaglutide medication. Side effects may include stomach issues and low blood sugar, but these are generally transient and rarely lead to treatment discontinuation.


Why Choose Weight Loss Medications?

Weight loss medications can be a valuable component of a holistic weight loss strategy. These medications are designed to aid individuals in achieving and maintaining a healthy weight when lifestyle changes alone may not be sufficient. They can be especially beneficial for:

  1. Moderate Weight Loss Goals: Weight loss medications are often recommended for individuals with moderate weight loss goals who may not require surgical intervention.

  2. Pre-Bariatric Surgery Preparation: Some patients may be advised to undergo a period of weight loss with medications before bariatric surgery to reduce surgical risks and enhance overall success.

  3. Medical Conditions: Weight loss medications may be recommended for individuals with obesity-related medical conditions, such as type 2 diabetes or hypertension.


Success Rates of Weight Loss Medications

The effectiveness of weight loss medications varies from person to person, and success is often dependent on factors such as adherence to medication, lifestyle changes, and individual health conditions. Dr. Farrer will work closely with you to create a personalized plan tailored to your unique needs and goals.


Who Should Consider Weight Loss Medications?

Weight loss medications may be suitable for individuals who:

  • Have a BMI between 27 and 30 with obesity-related health conditions.

  • Are preparing for bariatric surgery and need to lose weight before the procedure.

  • Prefer a non-surgical approach to weight loss.

However, the decision to pursue weight loss medications is highly individual. During a consultation with Dr. Farrer, your medical history, lifestyle, and weight loss goals will be thoroughly evaluated to determine the most suitable path for you.
