Semaglutide Weight Loss Injections in Milwaukee 

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved weekly weight loss injection that decreases appetite and food cravings, and helps to stabilize blood sugar.

Semaglutide is ideal for anyone looking to lose a minimum of 25 pounds and it does not require a restrictive diet. On average, patients treated with no change in lifestyle have seen up to 12-15% of total body weight loss in a 68-week period. 

The initial Semaglutide program is 12 weeks and you may continue as long as you are losing weight and are not experiencing any negative side effects. Alternating in-clinic and virtual visits are required for the duration of the program.

At your first consultation, you will meet with our Weight Loss Coordinator, Amanda. Together, you will discuss the program and formulate a written plan outlining how your goals will be achieved. Start your weight loss journey and schedule a complimentary weight loss consultation today!

Semaglutide is not insulin or a stimulant. Our physicians work directly with Amanda to ensure your safety and your health is our foremost concern. Semaglutide is available at our Illume Milwaukee and Waukesha offices.

What is Semaglutide?

About Semaglutide

Semaglutide (generic name) is an FDA approved once a week subcutaneous injection designed for long term use and can utilize a more flexible eating plan. Approved in 2017 for type 2 diabetics to help improve glycemic control, Semaglutide was then approved in 2022 for non-diabetics who have difficulty with weight loss. Semaglutide is not a stimulant; it is a non-habit forming, clinically proven effective peptide for long-term results.

How Semaglutide Works

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP1) analog. GLP-1 is a naturally occurring peptide hormone that impacts your appetite and digestion. GLP-1 is produced in the small intestine which then stimulates insulin secretion and slows down glucagon secretion. This delays gastric emptying and slowing down the rate at which your stomach sends food to your large intestine. This slower digestion (which improves blood sugar) and a longer feeling of fullness. It also stimulates the pancreas to produce more insulin, removing sugar from the bloodstream, which allows the body to regulate and metabolize sugars easier
