Body mass index, BMI, has long been an assessment tool for obesity. It is calculated based on a person's height and weight. On a standard BMI scale such as the one shown below, you can see there are several levels of obesity. With increasing BMI comes increased health risks. Obesity, particularly involving abdominal "belly" fat, is strongly correlated with an increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, high cholesterol, and high blood pressure.

Tackling obesity for some people is a lifelong battle of yo-yo dieting, joining weight loss programs, or trying the next fad diet in pursuit of the one that will work for them. At The Vital Elements, we have a treatment plan to complement your current regimen.
 

Semaglutide and L-Carnitine

Semaglutide has received praise as a ground-breaking weight-loss drug. A recently FDA-approved medication, this insulin-boosting treatment was once only available to individuals with diabetes, but it is now accessible to a wide range of patients. In our custom formulation, Semaglutide is combined with L-Carnitine, an amino acid that helps your body convert fat into energy.

Semaglutide is a strong appetite suppressant that works by stimulating your pancreas to increase insulin. The additional insulin causes the stomach to empty more slowly, allowing for feeling fuller longer and therefore decreasing appetite. You may also enjoy increased energy throughout the day thanks to the balanced blood sugar levels brought on by a Semaglutide regimen.

Semaglutide is an injectable medication only available by prescription. At The Vital Elements, we prescribe the medication, if appropriate. Our staff closely monitors the dosing and titration as well as the overall course of treatment that has been tailored to your health objectives.

Possible side effects of Semaglutide are primarily related to the slower emptying process of the stomach and can cause nausea and constipation, both of which are easily treated with over-the-counter medications.

You should be committed to leading a healthy lifestyle if you want to manage your weight in a sustainable, long-term manner. However, you can work toward your optimum healthy weight and meet your overall health goals with the support of Semaglutide.

This program option requires a commitment of 12 weeks. Weight-loss results vary but have been shown to average 1-2 pounds per week. This slow but steady progress might feel unproductive, and if you're feeling defeated, it can be tempting to discontinue treatment. Committing to the 12-week program gives you the greatest opportunity of seeing results.
