Realizing the full benefits of Semaglutide may take some time, as achieving healthy weight loss is a gradual process.

Typically, it will take around five months (or 20 weeks) to reach the recommended dosage. However, some people might need more time due to potential digestive side effects. During this period, individuals in clinical trials experienced an average weight loss.

When you start taking Wegovy or Ozempic, your initial dosage will be relatively low. Over the next four weeks, your healthcare provider will gradually increase the dosage until you reach the desired level. The specific amount you’ll take depends on the medication prescribed.

Dosage Schedule

A typical Semaglutide/L-Carnitine dosage schedule is:

Month 1: 0.25 mg once weekly (starting dosage)
Month 2: 0.5 mg once weekly
Month 3-9: 1 mg once weekly
Month 10-16: 1.7 mg once weekly
Month 17-Goal: 2.4 mg once weekly 

It’s also important to note that weight loss is not the primary goal of semaglutide treatment, and it should be used as an adjunctive therapy to improve glucose control. The primary goal of semaglutide is to improve glucose control and reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease in people with type 2 diabetes.

As always, it’s important to consult a healthcare professional before starting any weight loss program, and to follow a healthy diet and regular exercise regimen in conjunction with semaglutide.

Certain blood tests should be monitored while taking semaglutide. These may include:

This test measures the average blood sugar level over the past 2-3 months and is used to assess the effectiveness of diabetes treatment.

Why we LOVE Semaglutide

Semaglutide, a pharmaceutical agent falling under the category of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists, influences various parts of the body, including the brain, pancreas, and gastrointestinal system. It does so with the aim of enhancing satiety and facilitating the absorption of nutrients from food. Historically, Semaglutide was primarily prescribed to individuals with type-2 diabetes to enhance their glycemic control. Numerous clinical studies have subsequently demonstrated Semaglutide’s effectiveness in achieving weight loss. Patients can anticipate the following benefits:

✓ Reduced appetite

✓ Enhanced regulation of blood sugar levels

✓ Increased fat reduction

✓ Decreased susceptibility to certain health issues, such as high blood pressure and elevated cholesterol levels

Though Semaglutide stands as a dependable and enduring solution for managing weight, we firmly believe that its optimal results are achieved when used in conjunction with a balanced diet and regular exercise.

Semaglutide may increase the risk of thyroid cancer, which is rare and the risk should be weighed against the benefits of the treatment.

It’s also important to discuss any concerns about the medication with your healthcare provider and report any symptoms or side effects immediately. They will be able to advise you on whether semaglutide is a suitable treatment option for you, and can also help you to manage any side effects that may occur.

While using semaglutide your medical history, overall health, and response to treatment will be monitored. However, some general guidelines for care include:

Your healthcare provider will likely schedule regular appointments to monitor your blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and other health indicators. They may also order blood tests to check for any potential side effects or complications.

It’s important to follow your healthcare provider’s instructions and to communicate with them about any symptoms or side effects you may experience while taking semaglutide. They will be able to advise you on how to manage any issues that may arise and ensure that the treatment plan is working for you.

What kind of diet should I follow while on semaglutide?

There is no specific diet plan that must be followed while using semaglutide, but a healthy diet can help to improve blood sugar control and support weight loss.

A healthy diet for people with type 2 diabetes typically includes:

  • Eating a variety of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean protein, and healthy fats
  • Limiting processed foods, sugar, and saturated fat
  • Limiting alcohol consumption
  • Eating regular meals and snacks to help maintain stable blood sugar levels

You can work with a registered dietitian or a nutritionist to plan a diet that fits your individual needs and preferences. They can help you to create a meal plan that meets your nutritional needs, while also taking into account any other health conditions you may have.

A healthy diet and regular physical activity are essential for maintaining weight loss and good health. It’s important to consult with your healthcare provider before starting any diet plan or making significant changes to your eating habits, especially if you have other medical conditions or are taking other medications.

It is generally recommended to limit alcohol consumption while taking semaglutide. Alcohol can have an effect on blood sugar levels, and when combined with a medication that also affects blood sugar, it can increase the risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar).

Drinking moderate amounts of alcohol may not pose a risk to most people with type 2 diabetes, but it’s important to consult with your healthcare provider before drinking alcohol to ensure that it is safe for you. They may advise you to limit your alcohol intake, or to avoid alcohol altogether depending on your individual situation.

Alcohol can also affect your weight and when combined with a medication that can cause weight loss, it may cause weight gain and could counteract the effects of semaglutide.

It’s important to follow the advice of your healthcare provider when it comes to consuming alcohol while taking semaglutide, and to communicate with them about any concerns you may have.

Side Effects

Nausea is the most common semaglutide side effect. Up to 20% of people reported nausea in clinical trials. Nausea is even more common if you’re taking the higher-dose version for weight loss. Vomiting tends to be less common than nausea.

You’re more likely to experience these side effects with higher doses of semaglutide. That’s why your healthcare provider will raise your dose slowly over a few weeks to minimize these effects. For most people, these side effects should improve over time as your body gets used to the medication.

Eating smaller meals, avoiding high-fat foods, and remaining upright after you eat can also help manage potential nausea and vomiting from semaglutide. But if these side effects are accompanied by severe stomach pain that may or may not spread to your back, get medical attention right away. This could be a sign of pancreatitis, a rare but serious side effect. More on that later.
