Truly, it makes me feel happy and confident. ”
“It is hard to believe for me that with just the pills and Dr. Malhotra’s diet advice I have lost more that 50 lbs”
“I have lost 50 lbs since March when I started Phentermine. I first met Dr. Malhotra in 2014 and really like him. He is the best. I’m so happy with the weight loss and have to shop for new clothes though. It’s easy to order medications online from his clinic. It is reasonable and affordable!”

How does Semaglutide work ?
GLP-1 Receptor Activation: Semaglutide activates the GLP-1 receptors in the body. GLP-1 is a naturally occurring hormone that is released from the intestine in response to food intake. It plays a crucial role in regulating blood sugar levels.
Glucose Regulation: By activating GLP-1 receptors, semaglutide increases insulin secretion from the pancreas in a glucose-dependent manner. This means that insulin is released when blood sugar levels are elevated, helping to bring them down.
Insulin Sensitivity: Semaglutide also improves insulin sensitivity in peripheral tissues like muscles and liver. This means that the body becomes more responsive to the action of insulin, allowing it to utilize glucose more effectively.
Slowing Gastric Emptying: Another effect of semaglutide is the slowing down of gastric emptying, which refers to the rate at which food leaves the stomach and enters the intestines. By delaying gastric emptying, semaglutide helps to control the rise in blood sugar after meals.
Reduced Appetite: Semaglutide also acts on the brain’s appetite centers, leading to a decrease in appetite and a feeling of fullness. This can contribute to weight loss, and that’s why semaglutide is also being explored as an obesity treatment.
Is Semagltuide Safe for me to use ?
It is FDA approved medication but can have side effects.
Common side effects of semaglutide can include:
Gastrointestinal Symptoms: The most frequently reported side effects are gastrointestinal in nature, such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. These symptoms are usually mild to moderate and tend to improve over time.
Hypoglycemia: Semaglutide, when used in combination with other blood sugar-lowering medications like sulfonylureas or insulin, can increase the risk of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar). It is important to closely monitor blood sugar levels and adjust the dosage of other medications as needed.
Injection Site Reactions: Some individuals may experience injection site reactions, such as redness, itching, or swelling at the injection site. Proper injection techniques can help minimize these reactions.
Gallbladder Disorders: There have been rare reports of gallbladder-related adverse events, including gallstones and inflammation of the gallbladder.
It’s worth noting that the safety and side effects of semaglutide may vary among individuals, and some people may experience different or no side effects at all. It’s essential for you to call us, or email us if you experience any side effects. Incase of moderate to severe side effects please go to the nearby emergency room.
What is sequential weight loss treatment ?
