Semaglutide: A Game Changer

The weight loss industry is a multi-billion dollar industry, with countless diets, supplements, and workout programs promising to help people shed pounds and achieve their ideal bodies. However, for many, weight loss is a constant battle, one that can be difficult to win even with the most dedicated of efforts. But what if there was a medication that could help make weight loss effortless? What if there was a medication that could not only help with weight loss but improve overall health? This is where Semaglutide comes in.

Semaglutide was described as a “game-changer,” by Dr. Robert F. Kushner, study author and obesity researcher at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, told the New York Times. “This is the start of a new era.”

Semaglutide is a medication originally developed to treat type 2 diabetes but recent clinical trials have shown that it also has significant weight loss effects. In a study published in The New England Journal of Medicine, patients taking semaglutide lost nearly 10-times as much weight as those taking a placebo, over a 68-week study. That’s more than double the average compared to the last generation of weight loss drugs.

How Semaglutide Works

But how does semaglutide work to promote weight loss? It’s a type of GLP-1 receptor agonist, which means it mimics the effects of a natural hormone called GLP-1 in the body. GLP-1 is known to stimulate the release of insulin, which helps regulate blood sugar levels. Because of this, Semaglutide also suppresses appetite by signaling to the brain that the stomach is full. Unlike prior stimulant-based weight loss medications, Semaglutide is non-narcotic and doesn’t cause dependence.

By mimicking the effects of GLP-1, semaglutide can help control blood sugar levels and reduce feelings of hunger, making it easier for patients to stick to a calorie-controlled diet and lose weight.

But the benefits of semaglutide don’t stop there. This medication has also been shown to improve cardiovascular health markers such as blood pressure and cholesterol levels, as well as improve physical fitness. In the aforementioned study, patients taking semaglutide also experienced a significant improvement in their HbA1c levels, a measure of long-term blood sugar control, which can reduce the risk of complications associated with diabetes.

Semaglutide is FDA-approved for weight loss and is the first medication approved for weight loss since 2014.

The Downside

Semaglutide is currently nearly $1,500.00 per month without insurance at retail pharmacies. It’s a price that very few can afford, and even those with insurance have trouble getting their insurance plan to cover the cost of the prescription.

That’s where Henry Meds comes in. We believe everyone should have access to the best care possible, and price should never stand in the way of that.

That’s why we offer Semaglutide for $297 per month, no hidden-fees, no gimmicks.

So, if you’re tired of feeling frustrated with your weight loss efforts, talk to your new Henry Meds clinician about the possibility of incorporating semaglutide into your treatment plan. This medication could be the key to unlocking effortless weight loss and improved health.

This medication is only available with a prescription and should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional. As a member at Henry Meds, you can talk to a doctor or clinician from the comfort of your own home who can prescribe Semaglutide if medically appropriate. Your $297 per month membership includes the cost of everything, from telehealth visits to medication.
