We are excited to offer a new option for our integrative approach to weight management: injectable GLP-1 peptides along with our other injectable products such as Vit. B12 and amino acids.

Please reach out to us for more information.

Liraglutide, Semaglutide, and Tirzepatide are well-studied glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) agonists that may be used as an option for patients needing assistance with metabolic issues and improving body composition.

At this time, we are able to prescribe the GLP-1 agonists along with our other injectables products such as Vit.B12 and amino acids. These injectables are a new class of medication that is being used for weight loss. Dispensed across the United States under the brand names Ozempic, Saxenda, Wegovy, Mounjaro, etc are GLP-1 peptides- small chemical messengers that are used by the body to communicate from one site to another. Among its other functions, GLP-1 signals the brain that we might have just eaten so our hunger is decreased. Normally, the signal only lasts for only a short interval, but when the amount of GLP-1 is increased by giving yourself an injection, our hunger is decreased throughout the entirety of the day. In addition, GLP-1 slows the emptying of your stomach so we feel fuller faster and longer when taking in a meal.

The most common side effect with this new medication like many medications is mild nausea, and it is not a stimulant, so those patients that have not been able to tolerate Phentermine or similar medications can take a GLP-1 medication alone to help with their appetite. After a thorough evaluation of your medical history including certain lab-work and particularly risk factors, if we decide that one of the GLP-1 peptides is right for you, you can decide to prepay and we will order the medication specifically for you from a pharmacy of your choice. The medications arrive usually within a week or so and subsequent prescriptions can be timed so that you do not miss a dose.
There is currently a significant shortage of GLP-1 in the country. We will try our best to find your supply at a reasonable price for you to be able to have this option to lose weight and become healthy.
