5. GLP-1 Program

 The GLP-1 program consists of a growing class of drugs known as glucagon like peptide-1, or GLP-1 agonists. This class of medications slows down the food leaving from the stomach to the small intestine. They stabilize blood sugar, reducing/eliminating cravings. They are a breakthrough class of drugs that can achieve profound weight loss equivalent to bariatric surgery. Average weight loss is 10-15lbs in only a month!

a. Liraglutide (Victoza)

  • Victoza (liraglutide) is a once-daily injection for Type 2 diabetes. Unlike the other medications we’ve covered so far, it’s approved for use in people ages 10 and older. It’s also injected more frequently. You can inject your dose at any time of day, without regard to food.
  • Victoza can lower the risk of heart attack and stroke if you also have heart disease. There’s also evidence that it may help prevent kidney problems from getting worse.
  • During clinical trials, this was around 5 lbs on average.

b. Semaglutide (Wegovy, Ozempic)

Wegovy

  • Wegovy is another once-weekly semaglutide injection. But it’s only approved for weight loss in adults. It’s not used to treat diabetes, and you don’t need to have a diabetes diagnosis to use it. Like Ozempic, you can inject it at any time of day.
  • Wegovy is approved for people with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 mg/kg² or greater. You can also use Wegovy if you have a BMI of at least 27 mg/kg² with one or more weight-related health conditions (such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, diabetes).
  • In clinical trials, people taking Wegovy saw an average weight loss of nearly 15% of their initial body weight. For the best results, combine Wegovy with a healthy diet and exercise.

Ozempic

  • Ozempic (semaglutide) is a once-weekly injection for adults with Type 2 diabetes. It comes in a multi-dose pre-filled pen. You can inject Ozempic at any time of day, with or without food. But you should inject it on the same day each week.
  • Your healthcare provider may recommend Ozempic if you have Type 2 diabetes and heart disease. That’s because Ozempic can help lower the risk of heart attack and stroke. There’s also some evidence suggesting potential kidney benefits, too.
  • On average, those taking it lost 8 to 10 lbs during clinical trials. Wegovy, a higher-dose product, is approved specifically for weight loss.

c. Tirzapetide (Mounjaro)

  • Mounjaro (tirzepatide) is closely related to GLP-1 agonist drugs. It’s part of a brand new class called GLP-1/GIP agonists. It works by mimicking two gut hormones: GLP-1 and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP).
  • Mounjaro has been studied head-to-head against Ozempic. After 40 weeks, people taking it saw a better reduction in hemoglobin A1C levels (average blood sugar over 3 months) compared to Ozempic. And they lost more weight, too.
  • Mounjaro is only approved to treat Type 2 diabetes for now. But it’s currently being studied for weight loss benefits. The FDA has granted the medication Fast Track designation. This means it could be approved for weight loss sooner rather than later.

(Must have co-mobility of hypertension & diabetes)

6. Tesofensine (serotonin-noradrenaline-dopamine reuptake inhibitor) Program

Dopamine, Serotonin, and Noradrenaline (triple) reuptake inhibitor, (It regulates these 3 neurotransmitters). It works primarily with Dopamine and Hypothalamus which in turn reduces/eliminates hunger and cravings. It increases fat reduction and has very few side effects and considered very safe.

  •  Initial Consultation
  • Diet, exercise & behavior modification consult
  • 4 weekly B12 shots (free)
  • Free one month Calcium Pyruvate or Chromium Picolinate
  • Monthly follow-up visit
  • Weekly follow-up (optional)
  • Telehealth consult for follow up (Optional)
