Reach Your Weight Loss Goals

If you're struggling with excess weight or obesity-related health conditions, Semaglutide (Ozempic or Wegovy) could be the solution you've been searching for. At Chicago Weight Loss, we offer personalized semaglutide programs to help you reach your weight loss goals safely and effectively.

What is Semaglutide (Ozempic & Wegovy)?

Semaglutide, commonly referred to as Ozempic or Wegovy, is a medication primarily used to manage diabetes and has emerged as a breakthrough in combating obesity. While both Ozempic and Wegovy are formulations of the Semaglutide peptide, Wegovy is typically administered in higher doses.

Ozempic has received FDA approval for the treatment of diabetes but is also utilized "off-label" for weight loss due to observations of rapid weight reduction among diabetic patients using it. In contrast, Wegovy has obtained FDA approval specifically for weight loss purposes.

How Does Semaglutide (Ozempic & Wegovy) Work?

Semaglutide operates as a GLP-1 receptor agonist, mimicking the functions of the natural hormone GLP-1 within the body. This action promotes increased insulin secretion, thereby improving blood sugar regulation.


Additionally, it can suppress appetite, enabling individuals to consume fewer calories and facilitate weight loss. Semaglutide proves to be an effective medication for weight management by assisting in appetite control and reducing daily caloric intake.

Who Is A Good Candidate for Semaglutide (Ozempic & Wegovy)?

If you're in overall good health and aiming to lose some weight, Semaglutide might just be the right option for you. During your consultation, we'll conduct a comprehensive health assessment, delve into your medical background, and ask about your weight loss objectives to ensure you achieve safe, optimal outcomes from Semaglutide weight loss injections. It's crucial to grasp the effectiveness of Semaglutide hinges on your dedication to adopting a healthier diet and embracing an active lifestyle.

Typically, ideal candidates for Semaglutide are individuals with a BMI of 25 or higher who are seeking weight loss to enhance their health and appearance, or to attain a healthy, stable weight.
