Weight Loss

MinuteMD Can Help You Reach Your Weight Loss Goals!

Let’s face it – sometimes reaching your goals is difficult on your own and you just need a little help. Our team of physicians and skilled staff is here to help you obtain your goals! Our new weight loss protocol includes a prescription drug called semaglutide to help you get there! Our semaglutide is specifically compounded for you.

Semaglutide

Semaglutide injection (2.4 mg once weekly) may be prescribed for support in chronic weight management in adults with obesity or overweight with at least one weight-related condition (such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol), for use in addition to a reduced calorie diet and increased physical activity. This is an under-the-skin injection.

    HOW MINUTEMD WORKS

    Medical Questionnaire

    Start by completing a medical questionnaire to capture your health needs and goals to determine eligibility in the program. A licensed doctor will review it with you and answer any questions you have.

    Enroll In The Program

    If our licensed doctor determines that you are provisionally eligible for the program, you will complete a quick and easy enrollment. Once you are enrolled, your patient profile will be built out on our world class secure HIPAA-compliant portal called Healthie.

    Get Labwork Completed

    After enrollment, our doctor will order you labwork which will be sent to you as a PDF. Simply take this to the specified lab (typically LabCorp or Quest Diagnostics) and present it to them to have your bloodwork drawn. There is no additional charge to you for this service!

    Physician's Review

    Once your bloodwork test is completed, it is sent to us from the laboratory. Our physicians will then review your results to further assess eligibility and, if medically appropriate, prescribe the medicine you are requesting.

    Prescription Is Shipped Direct To You!

    Once prescribed by our physicians, your prescription is sent to our partner compounding pharmacy (or in some cases, another pharmacy of your choosing). Our partner pharmacy will then expedite shipping of your prescription (and supplies, if applicable) direct to your doorstep!

    Bloodwork Is Reanalyzed

    In order to monitor your weight loss progress, bloodwork is reanalyzed at intervals and this process repeats itself until you’ve reached your goals or if our physicians deem it is no longer medically appropriate. Your health and safety is our number one priority.

    Semaglutide – Mechanism of Action

    Semaglutide is a synthetic glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist that belongs to a class of drugs called incretin mimetics.  Incretins are a type of hormone that stimulate a decrease in blood glucose levels, such as GLP-1 that binds to and activates the GLP-1 receptor.  GLP-1 works to regulate ones appetite and caloric intake, and the GLP-1 receptor is present in several areas of your body, including areas in your brain responsible for appetite regulation.  Semaglutide, as an agonist, binds to the GLP-1 receptor and works to lower blood glucose by stimulating insulin secretion and to inhibit glucagon release.

    Semaglutide – Adverse Reactions

    Semaglutide is associated with GI adverse reactions, including nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, abdominal pain, dyspepsia, abdominal distention, eructation, flatulence, gastroenteritis, and gastroesophageal reflux disease.  It has also been associated with causing headache, fatigue, dizziness, and hypoglycemia in patients with type 2 diabetes.  Please discuss with your physician the contraindications and other warning and precautions before starting Semaglutide.
