WEIGHT LOSS

Semaglutide

In June of 2021, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved a new treatment for chronic weight management – the first of its kind since 2014. It’s called semaglutide, and it’s administered once per week.
Semaglutide works by mimicking glucagon-like-peptide-1 (GLP-1), a hormone that can target the parts of the brain that are in charge of regulating food intake and appetite. In trials, participants who took semaglutide lost an average of 6.2% to 12.4% of their initial body weight.

It’s important to note that this treatment is for people with chronic weight management issues, like those with type 2 diabetes. It cannot be taken in addition to other treatments, and doctor supervision is key.

Tesamorelin

Tesamorelin is shown to decrease adipose (fat) tissue in both men and women. There’s also evidence that it can reduce C-reactive proteins. Created in the liver, these proteins are related to inflammation and are associated with negative health effects. Studies show that tesamorelin can positively impact insulin resistance and, in healthy people, lower triglyceride levels.

Ipamorelin

As a growth hormone secretagogue (a class of growth hormones), ipamorelin helps the body produce more endogenous growth hormones. As a result, people using this type of peptide therapy experience accelerated fat loss, as well as improvements to energy, mood, and sleep. It can generally be used for a short period of time to help improve body composition.

Bremelanotide

Bremelanotide injection is used to treat hypoactive sexual desire disorder (HSDD) in premenopausal women who previously had no problems with sexual desire and that occurs in any type of stimulation, situation, or partner.

Lipotropics

These injectables consist of various vitamins, nutrients, and other ingredients purportedly used to aid in weight loss. Some of the most common ingredients in these shots include:

 

  • Vitamin B-12

  • Vitamin B-6

  • Vitamin B complex

  • L-carnitine

  • Megaburn

Wellbutrin

When combined with counseling on diet and exercise, Wellbutrin SR daily for 24 weeks helped obese adults lose 7% or 10% of their body weight, respectively. Continuing the medication for another 24 weeks helped them maintain this weight loss.

Low Dose Naltrexone

LDN appears to contribute to weight loss by a number of mechanisms. Studies have shown that LDN may help curb your appetite by reducing the appeal of food. As a result, you start losing your cravings for food. LDN may also aid in increasing the body’s growth hormone levels. Growth hormone helps in weight loss by facilitating the building of lean muscles and burning of fats. Insulin resistance is another issue. It contributes to weight gain, obesity, and a number of other diseases like diabetes, heart attacks, and strokes. LDN helps reduce insulin resistance therefore, not only does it have the potential to help with weight loss, but it may also address other potential diseases.
