Semaglutide Plus L-Carnitine for Weight Loss: A Once Weekly Weight Loss Injection 

Physician Directed by Priscilla Morris, MD 

We offer FDA-approved semaglutide injections for weight loss with our doctor-directed weight management program. Statistically, almost 70 percent of American adults have weight issues. Obesity and excess weight can lead to serious health issues, including heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and even death. Obesity is also linked to an increased risk of certain types of cancers. Major health benefits can start with losing just 5 percent to 10 percent of body weight through diet and exercise. This can lead to a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease. We are pleased to provide a physician-directed weight loss program that can help patients lose 20 percent or more of their body weight. 

What is Semaglutide with L-Carnitine?  

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved weight-loss drug. Although recently approved, this medication has shown impressive results, especially in chronic weight management for overweight adults. Semaglutide is an injection applied weekly with dosage tailored to each patient. This medication works by binding and activating the GLP-1 receptor, a receptor targeted commonly in treatments of type 2 diabetes. Semaglutide also helps stimulate the secretion of insulin and lowers glucagon secretion. By slowing the speed at which the stomach empties and creating a feeling of fullness, this drug has proven to be a long-lasting appetite suppressant. 

In addition to semaglutide, L-carnitine is added to injection regimens to boost effectiveness. Carnitine is an amino acid that is crucial in energy production – It’s in most cells in the body! Carnitine burns fatty acids to boost metabolism and produce energy. Alongside semaglutide, they make for potent and effective fat burners. 

How Do Semaglutide Injections Work for Weight Loss? 

Just like any weight loss medication, it is recommended that semaglutide is used with a committed diet and exercise regimen.  This drug is a powerful appetite suppressant, it is most recommended for patients with a considerable amount of weight to lose. As a potent medication, it is typically used for those with at least one weight-related affliction, such as type 2 diabetes or high blood pressure. Weight loss has been associated with a lower risk of cardiovascular diseases, especially those suffering from obesity.  With this FDA-approved drug for weight loss, patients now have a new option to lose the weight they desire.  

One of our medical professionals will administer a weekly subcutaneous injection that can be taken with a B12 injection for the best results, along with a healthy lifestyle modification. Administering the dose slowly with recommended lifestyle changes is extremely important to decrease the likelihood of gastrointestinal upset and similar health issues.
