Semaglutide The New Weight Loss “Game Changer”
FDA APPROVED WEEKLY INJECTION
We are now offering Wegovy (semaglutide), a once-weekly injection that helps with chronic weight management when used in combination with diet and exercise. Semaglutide is a synthetic version of a naturally occurring hormone that acts on the appetite center in the brain and in the gut, producing a feeling of being full. Semiglutide is available as a single use injection pen. This means that your dose is already pre-set for you and that you’ll discard the pen after your injection.
- Non-stimulant therefor safe for patients with cardiovascular disease
- Non addictive, not a controlled substance
- Reduces appetite and food cravings while increasing sensation of fullness
- Lowers weight, waist size, blood pressure, blood sugar and inflammation
- Most patients had a 15%weight loss with many losing more than 20%
- Painless weekly injection with a tiny needle injected into belly fat
You are not a candidate for semaglutide if you had any of the following: diabetic retinopathy, low blood sugar, decreased kidney function, pancreatitis, medullary thyroid cancer or a family history of medullary thyroid cancer or multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2.
Vitamin B Complex Injection
The B vitamins play many essential roles in energy metabolism in the body. A 2013 study indicated that overweight and obese people were likely to have low levels of Vitamin 812. A2015 study found that obese people were also likely to have thiamine deficiencies, and thiamine helps to regulate appetite.
According to Health Line, B vitamins play many essential roles in energy metabolism in the body. When you have more energy, you are more motivated to work out, thus encouraging weight loss. Most people obtain the necessary levels of these vitamins from diet alone because they may be found in a range of foods.
However, some elements can indicate that your body requires additional B vitamins. Age, pregnancy, food choices, illnesses, genetics, medicines, and alcohol usage are a few of these.
Deficiency in one of the B vitamins can affect other B vitamins, which can disrupt a person’s metabolism.
Supplements with vitamin B complex often include the following:
Thiamin’s main job is to efficiently break down and use fats, carbohydrates, and protein for energy. Up to 1.2 mg of Bl, the recommended daily allowance, is enough to reap the benefits.
B6 is essential for metabolizing fats, proteins, and carbohydrates. Metabolism needs B-6 and folate to work correctly. When blood sugar is low, the vitamin converts fat, stores to energy, working together with vitamins like B2 and B3. Add a high-quality B6 to assist with weight loss goals.
Energy metabolism is B12’s main quality, turning carbohydrates and fats into glucose. B12 deficiency impacts stress levels and depression. Stress impedes weight loss goals. B12 is only present in animal products, so vegetarians and vegans may have low B12 levels.
The ability to process fats, proteins, and carbohydrates is essential. A healthy metabolism ensures that the body uses these nutrients for energy rather than storing them as fat.
If a person is overweight, vitamin supplementation alone may not improve weight. Weight loss must come from lifestyle changes as well.
Vitamins are no miracle weight loss pills. However, B vitamins can support a healthy diet and exercise. By supercharging the metabolism and converting food into energy, B vitamins improve your chances for success!
Vitamin B-12 Injections
Vitamin B-12 can be found in many foods, including meat, fish, and dairy products. At Carolina Pain and Weight Loss, we also offer the vitamin as an injection that can be used to aid weight loss. B-12 is believed to boost energy and quicken the body’s metabolism. The boost of energy helps patients be more active, while a speedier metabolism means more consumed food is being transformed into energy.
Lipotropic injections contain substances that help stimulate breakdown of lipids (fat) during metabolism and in this way reduces the accumulation of excess fat in the liver and other tissues. Injections of natural nutrients can optimize your ability to shed fat.
Appetite suppressants are designed to increase levels of two chemicals found in the body, serotonin, and catecholamine. These chemicals affect mood and appetite; by increasing the amount of these chemicals, patients do not feel as hungry and so do not consume as many calories. Appetite suppressants are available in tablet and extended-release capsule forms.
*HCG Injections are no longer available in North Carolina.
