Best Testosterone Booster San Diego and La Jolla CA


Losing weight is a constant battle for both men and women, no matter the age. Luckily, for those who live in San Diego, Total T Clinic has the answer. In June of 2021, the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Semaglutide for weight loss. This is the first drug for chronic weight loss management that has been approved since 2014.

What is Semaglutide (GLP-1) and how does it work?

Semaglutide, known commercially as Ozempic or Wegovy, works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1). GLP-1 plays a role in digestion and appetite regulation, causing you to feel full so that you eat few calories.

After you’ve eaten a meal, Semaglutide stimulates your pancreas to release insulin and blocks a hormone that causes your liver to release sugar, lowering your blood sugar level. It also slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach (called gastric emptying), causing you to feel full longer.

How is Semaglutide administered?

Semaglutide is administered with a small diabetic needle subcutaneously or Sub-Q.
While other medications in its drug class sometimes need to be administered daily, Semaglutide only needs to be used weekly since it continues to work in your body for a longer period of time.

How much weight can you expect to lose with Semaglutide?

Studies have shown losses of 15% in body weight over time, with losses as high as 30% when combined with exercise. It may take up to 5 weeks to begin lowering your blood glucose (sugar) levels, but the maximum effect will not be seen for 3-6 months.

Total T Clinic is always on the cutting edge of the latest medications and treatments. We have helped hundreds of people in San Diego, like you, reach their optimal weight. The process is simple, but should always be monitored by an experienced physician to prescribe the correct dose of medication.
