Semaglutide Weight Loss Program

Our mission is to provide a comprehensive, healthy approach that promotes sustainable weight loss. At our clinics, we prioritize health above all else so you can achieve your goals.


The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) reports that an alarming 73.6% of adults over 20 are overweight, with a staggering 41.9% classified as obese – so much so the CDC has now declared obesity a national epidemic.


Even those who are “skinny” can be susceptible to health complications that come with being overweight. Even if the scale does not reflect it, carrying excess fat around your midsection can have serious consequences for your life expectancy. Also known as “skinny” or visceral fat, this type of adipose tissue is associated with elevated inflammation levels and a higher risk of high blood sugar and pre-diabetes. Don’t let these silent risks go unnoticed – it’s important to take measures to reduce this dangerous abdominal weight.

73.6% Of adults are overweight

In a groundbreaking research from Duke University, it has been revealed that Gen Xers and Millennials are currently experiencing an alarming decrease in life expectancy. This is the first time in decades where such a phenomenon occurred. Sadly, the major cause for this decline is attributed to being overweight or obese, which can lead to many grave chronic diseases, including:


  • Coronary artery disease
  • Stroke
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • High cholesterol (includes triglycerides which contribute to plaque in the arteries)
  • Fatty liver disease
  • Certain cancers
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sleep apnea
  • Endocrine disorders, including Insulin Resistance
  • Alzheimer’s and/or dementia
  • Mood disorders
  • Back and joint pain

At Pulse Healthcare System, our compassionate providers are there  through every step of your journey!

We are here to assist you in achieving a healthier, vibrant way of life. Losing weight not only boosts your physical wellbeing, but it can also reduce the chances of numerous health issues.


While you can certainly see rapid weight-loss with fad diets, the unfortunate reality is that most people will regain their lost pounds or more as soon as they cease their diet. Additionally, some of these crash courses are extremely calorie restricted and hazardous for your overall health.


After extensive research we proudly introduce the Semaglutide Medical Weight Loss Program – a powerful way to lose weight safely and effectively!


Weight loss


What is semaglutide?

Semaglutide works by imitating a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), targeting areas in our brains that regulate food intake and hunger.


Semaglutide, a GLP-1 agonist, is an effective way to manage your blood sugar levels and can also yield some additional weight loss benefits. By slowing down the rate at which food leaves your stomach, this key hormone helps you feel less hungry - allowing you to eat smaller portions and therefore lose more weight over time. Moreover, it not only stimulates insulin release from your pancreas but additionally inhibits glucagon production by your liver; both of these processes further assist in decreasing hunger pangs while ultimately aiding with weight management goals.

Benefits of Semaglutide

Weight loss medications have been around for years, but with limited success and even hazardous side effects due to amphetamines and other noxious ingredients. But now, there is a new breakthrough—Semaglutide!


This revolutionary medication is the first of its kind as it leads up a safe yet highly effective class of hormone-based weight loss treatments.


Let us now explore the incredible health advantages semaglutide offers to individuals struggling with overweight and obesity:


  • Lowering your blood sugar without increasing hypoglycemia.
  • Reduced body weight, lipids, blood pressure, inflammatory markers, oxidative stress, endothelial dysfunction, and subclinical atherosclerosis.
  • Appetite suppression.
  • Enhanced glucose-dependent insulin secretion.
  • Regulates blood sugar levels, both in fasting and after eating.
  • Promotes a sensation of fullness in the brain.
  • Slows gastric emptying in the intestines to help feel fuller, longer.
  • Reduces HbA1c
  • Weight loss.


The stunning results of a clinical trial involving Semaglutide showed that most people with obesity lost at least 10% of their body weight, while more than half achieved a 15% reduction. This amount is thought to be valuable in drastically reducing the risk for future chronic illnesses according to healthcare professionals. These findings were published in February 2021 by New England Journal of Medicine and further confirms how powerful this medication can be when it comes to improving health outcomes.


Participants taking semaglutide have seen substantial improvements in cardiovascular risk factors such as BMI, waist circumference, blood pressure and glucose levels compared to those given a placebo.

How We Prescribe Semaglutide

Rest assured that Semaglutide is not a stimulant. So, you won't experience any unpleasant side effects like sleeplessness or jitteriness. As an alternative, it's a small protein (peptide) that activates metabolic pathways in the body to help promote blood sugar metabolism and decrease hunger levels. You might have heard of this peptide before; it's been utilized to treat type 2 diabetes under brand names such as Ozempic ® and Saxenda® .


In 2017, the Food and Drug Administration approved Semaglutide as a treatment for type-2 diabetes. Subsequent research has demonstrated that it is not only beneficial in managing diabetes but also effective for weight loss. As such, Wegovy® was FDA-approved this June of 2021 to be used specifically for shedding unwanted pounds.


To ensure the best results for our patients, we begin each treatment with a lower compounded dose of Semaglutide for the first month and then gradually increase it in the following two months. In addition, to diminish potential side effects, Vitamin B-6 is included as part of this compound medication. Our compounded formulation of Semaglutide is not connected with any brand names associated with treating type 2 diabetes or aiding in weight loss.


Semaglutide is administered via subcutaneous injection (into the fat right below the skin), using a tiny needle that causes little to no discomfort.

How Long Can I Be On The Program?

The Semaglutide Weight Loss Program is flexible, so you can repeat it as many times as necessary. If your goal is to lose 20 or 30 pounds, then you might be able to complete the program just once; however, if you are trying to shed more weight than that we recommend taking a break of at least one month between each three-month cycle until your desired result has been achieved. For those aiming for larger amounts of weight loss - such as 50+ pounds - the journey may take up six to eight months in total.


While Semaglutide is appropriate for most, there are some contraindications that would prevent you from the program. These include:

  • Personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasias
  • Personal or family history of parathyroid cancer or pancreatic cancer
  • Being pregnant, trying to get pregnant, or breastfeeding
  • History of anorexia, bulimia, or body dysmorphic disorder
  • Diabetic retinopathy
  • Renal insufficiency
  • Vitamin B6 or Vitamin B12 allergy
  • History of pancreatitis or pancreatic disease
  • History of gallbladder disease (gallbladder removed - eligible for the program)
  • Personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer
  • Type-1 diabetes (an auto-immune condition)
  • MEN – multiple endocrine neoplasia
  • Pancreatitis
  • Decreased kidney function


As with any drug, Semaglutide may cause some temporary adverse reactions, many of them will likely dissipate over time as your body adjusts to the drug. It is essential that you communicate any side effects with your doctor so they can help mitigate them; if the symptoms become too severe, please seek medical attention immediately. Our team is here for you every step of the way - just give us a call and we'll adjust your dose accordingly.


Semaglutide's most common side effect is nausea, so at Pulse Healthcare System, we stay ahead of the curve by having our medication compounded with vitamin B6 to ensure our patients' comfort.


  • Nausea or vomiting
  • Fatigue
  • Abdominal pain
  • Constipation
  • Diarrhea
  • Allergic reaction
  • Pain at the site of injection
  • Low blood sugar
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Pancreatitis 
  • Kidney damage
  • Thyroid tumors

Weight Loss Expectations

With Semaglutide, the average person can expect to shed 15% of their body weight in a matter of months. As you build up your momentum, you’ll feel better and better.


If you're only aiming for 20-30 pounds off the scale, our 90-day program might be all you need! The longer and harder that you push yourself though, the more likely it's going to be that even larger goals will become achievable: if dropping major weight is something that interests or excites you - don't hesitate to stay consistent with this routine until those dreams are realized; potentially within a year!


Our Weight Loss Program does not require a specific diet, however to guarantee the most success with Semaglutide it's essential to make sure you're maintaining a well-balanced diet and drinking plenty of water. Refrain from overeating and instead fill up on nutrient-rich foods such as protein-packed options like lean meats, eggs and beans. Avoid processed or high sugar items that can trigger uncomfortable side effects such as fatigue and nausea. Eating in moderation will help you feel your best while using this medication.


If you follow by these instructions, not only will your energy levels increase but you'll also find yourself feeling better while naturally consuming fewer calories!


While taking Semaglutide, exercise is not a requirement for weight loss - however, we highly recommend it! Weight lifting or resistance training can help preserve your muscle tissues while you're dieting. No need to join an expensive gym either; take it slow and begin with walking if that's more comfortable. Exercise provides numerous health benefits beyond just being able to shed extra pounds quickly.
