FAQs

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. By mimicking Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1) in the body, semaglutide can increase insulin secretion and slow down gastric emptying—or, how fast your stomach empties food. This can suppress your appetite so you feel fuller longer, helping you eat less and lose weight in the process. It also helps improve insulin resistance which is a part of metabolic syndrome. This can happen over time due to inflammation, toxins and dysfunction. It is the key issue for many struggling with weight gain and resistant weight loss.

Tirzepatide belongs to a class of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1RA) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide receptor agonist (GIPRA). Tirzepatide is designed to mimic the actions of the natural GLP-1 and GIP hormones in the body, which help regulate blood sugar levels. The unique aspect of Tirzepatide is that it combines the actions of both GLP-1 and GIP receptors, leading to more effective blood sugar control and potentially offering additional benefits such as weight loss. By activating these receptors, Tirzepatide promotes insulin secretion, suppresses glucagon (a hormone that raises blood sugar), slows down gastric emptying, and promotes satiety, which can help in managing diabetes and body weight. Studies have shown this dual action peptide has superior hyperglycemia control and reductions in Body Mass Index (BMI) to GLP-1 agonists (Semaglutide).

Weight loss success varies greatly from patient to patient as there are many factors involved. We are seeing an approximate 5-10% weight loss in most patients.

 Results will vary by patient. You may begin to experience some effects early on, such as a smaller appetite. Full effects take up to 8 weeks and potentially longer. Dietary and lifestyle changes also create a greater impact on your results.

If you are not seeing results while taking semaglutide or tirzepatide, there may be other underlying causes preventing your weight loss. Your Medical Provider may refer you to the Functional Medicine Clinic for more testing and evaluation.

Once you’ve booked your appointment, you will receive an email that confirms your appointment and reviews next steps. Please access your Patient Portal and fill out all forms and medical questionnaires at least 48 hours (2 business days) prior to your appointment. Your providers spend time reviewing your information and prepare for your appointment ahead of time. Any medical records, specifically those within the last year, should be uploaded to your portal or faxed to our office (737) 225-8927. Please make sure to include any medications or supplements you are currently taking, as well as, any allergies to medications.

We do not accept insurance for the medical weight loss program.

We require at least 48 hours (2 business days) notice for all canceled or rescheduled appointments. There is a fee associated with no shows, cancelations or rescheduled appointments made within 48 hours of your original appointment time.

All programs are non-refundable.

The medical weight loss program is a fully virtual program! We do not see patients in person for this specific program.
