Weight loss injectables IN GREENVILLE, SC Medical Weight Loss

What We Offer

Weight loss injectables are medications that are designed to help individuals lose weight by influencing various physiological processes in the body. We offer the following weight loss injectables at our office:

Semaglutide: an antidiabetic medication used to treat type 2 diabetes that is also used to treat obesity for long-term weight management. Ozempic is a formulation of semaglutide that is approved for both the treatment of type 2 diabetes, and for the reduction of cardiovascular events in adults with type 2 diabetes and established cardiovascular disease.

Tirzepatide: a medication that is used primarily for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Tirzepatide has been developed as a once-weekly injectable medication. Mounjaro is a brand name that tirzepatide is sold under.

Empowering you to be your best How Weight Loss Injectables Work:

  • Appetite Suppression: Some weight loss injectables work by affecting appetite regulation. They may influence hormones such as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) or other neurotransmitters involved in the feeling of satiety. By reducing appetite, individuals may consume fewer calories, leading to weight loss.
  • Metabolic Effects: Certain injectable medications can influence metabolic processes, such as increasing the body’s sensitivity to insulin. This can lead to better blood sugar control and a reduction in the storage of excess calories as fat.
  • Fat Absorption Inhibition: Some weight loss injectables interfere with the absorption of dietary fat in the digestive system. By reducing the absorption of fats, these medications can help decrease overall calorie intake.
  • Increased Energy Expenditure: Certain medications may stimulate thermogenesis, the process by which the body produces heat and burns calories. This increased energy expenditure can contribute to weight loss.
  • Regulation of Blood Sugar Levels: Some weight loss injectables were initially developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. By regulating blood sugar levels, these medications can indirectly affect weight by improving insulin sensitivity and reducing fat accumulation.
Comprehensive Weight Management with RMI:

We now have the InBody 970 Body Composition Analyzer at our office. This device accurately aspects of body composition, which helps our staff develop individualized and comprehensive weight loss/weight management programs for patients. Often paired with weight loss injectables, complete hormone care and a guided nutrition protocol, clients experience improved body composition, better sleep, better energy, increased libido, and overall enhanced wellness.

Body Composition Analysis for Weight Management

An InBody Scan provides an accurate and detailed analysis of body composition including bone mass, body fat and muscle. Understanding your body composition can help you set goals for weight loss and weight management, identify potential health risks, and allow you to receive personalized recommendations for exercise and nutrition.

Hormones play an important role in body composition because they regulate processes in the body, including metabolism and energy balance, which can impact weight. Lifestyle factors such as diet, exercise, sleep, and stress management can influence hormone levels and, consequently, weight regulation.
