Many people struggle to maintain a healthy weight over the course of their lifetime. For individuals who have not been able to achieve their ideal results through diet and exercise, prescription weight loss medication may be a good option. The emotional and physical toll obesity takes is incredibly significant. Cape Family Medical Clinic is proud to offer various weight loss programs utilizing a Semaglutide/B12 compound or Phentermine along with an amazing 12 Month Health & Wellness Guide to help men and women who struggle with their weight to live a healthy lifestyle. Our patients typically realize a five to fifteen percent weight reduction with this program!
Phentermine is used to help adults who are obese or who are overweight and have weight-related medical problems to lose weight and to keep from gaining back that weight. It is a prescription appetite-suppressant drug that binds to receptors on the hypothalamus, and is one of the pair of drugs known as fen-phen.
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist (a substance that initiates a physical response) administered sublingually once a day for weight loss. GLP-1 agonists are called incretin mimetics as they “mimic” their effect. Incretins are hormones released by the small intestine after eating to trigger insulin release and block sugar production.
Semaglutide slows down how quickly food leaves your stomach (gastric emptying), making you feel full faster and longer.
It is important to disclose all your medical and health history, including all prescriptions, over-the-counter medications, and supplements that you currently, or occasionally, take. If you are on birth control, you will need to use backup contraception.
If you have any of the following conditions, please let your provider know:
Several research studies note that Vitamin B12 aids in the treatment tolerance with GLP-1 agonists. Two of the most common adverse side effects of Semaglutide are nausea and Hypophagia. These reactions have been illustrated to be significantly reduced when employed in conjunction with Vitamin B12.
GLP-1 is produced in the small intestine to stimulate insulin secretion and inhibit glucagon secretion, lowering blood sugar. Semaglutide and B12 have effectively demonstrated their beneficial effects on glycemia, with many other health benefits.
The treatment is generally well-tolerated and can be administered continuously without diminishing effects.
Unfortunately, many patients find that diet and exercise alone are insufficient to achieve their weight loss goals. That is why several men and women have turned to aesthetic medicine to assist them in their weight loss journey.
Unlike hCG, Semaglutide or Phentermine does not require a strict 500-calorie diet protocol while taking daily. However, for the best results, we recommended reducing your caloric intake while on prescription weight loss medication. Eat healthy proteins and fats. Stay away from bad fats, processed foods, and refined sugars. And exercise weekly to live a healthier, happier life.
The protocol differs from the daily injection of hCG. Still, we encourage you to eat a wholesome diet of 1200-1800 calories daily, allowing you to create a more sustainable diet during the program compared to hCG’s 500-calorie protocol.
Your initial appointment will be a consultation with a provider to review your medical history and qualifications. We will take all vitals, do a full lab panel, get your starting weight, BMI, total body fat and a few other measures.
During the consultation, you will receive additional information about what to expect and a 12-month wellness plan to help you achieve success in your weight loss journey.
Lab work will be required annually throughout the program and this will cost $55.
No matter how much weight you need to lose, our experienced providers will partner with you to provide the support and tools you need to reach your target weight and achieve long-term success. Your monthly visit is only $65. We have also partnered with an amazing local pharmacy (John’s Pharmacy) to provide both Phentermine ($15/month) and the Semaglutide/B12 compound (Only $150 per month).
