Highland Primary Care

At Highland Primary Care, we are proud to offer cutting-edge medical weight loss treatments, including semaglutide, to help you achieve lasting weight loss and improve your overall health.

About Semaglutide

Semaglutide is a once-weekly injectable medication that belongs to the class of glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs). Originally developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, semaglutide has been shown to be highly effective in promoting weight loss when used at a higher dose.


How Semaglutide Works

Semaglutide works by mimicking the effects of a naturally occurring hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which helps regulate blood sugar levels and appetite. By activating GLP-1 receptors in the brain, semaglutide helps reduce hunger and increase feelings of fullness, leading to reduced food intake and subsequent weight loss.

Benefits of Semaglutide for Weight Loss
  • Significant Weight Loss: Clinical trials have shown that treatment with semaglutide can lead to significant weight loss compared to placebo, with many patients achieving clinically meaningful reductions in body weight.
  • Improvement in Health Parameters: In addition to weight loss, semaglutide has been associated with improvements in various health parameters, including reductions in blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and markers of inflammation.
  • Sustainable Results: Unlike fad diets or temporary weight loss solutions, semaglutide offers sustainable weight loss results that can be maintained over the long term with continued treatment and lifestyle modifications.


Our Approach to Semaglutide Treatment

At Highland Primary Care, we take a personalized approach to semaglutide treatment, including:

  • Comprehensive Evaluation: We conduct a thorough assessment of your medical history, weight loss goals, and suitability for semaglutide treatment.
  • Individualized Treatment Plan: Based on your evaluation, we develop a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals, which may include semaglutide therapy, dietary counseling, exercise recommendations, and behavioral support.
  • Ongoing Monitoring and Support: We provide regular follow-up appointments, monitoring, and support to track your progress, address any concerns or side effects, and adjust your treatment plan as needed to optimize outcomes.


Is Semaglutide Right for You?

Semaglutide may be an appropriate option for individuals who are overweight or obese and have not achieved weight loss goals through diet and exercise alone. However, it is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits of semaglutide treatment with your healthcare provider to determine if it is the right choice for you.
