Weight loss medications are prescription drugs that help you eliminate excess fat. They aren’t a substitute for healthy lifestyle changes, like diet and exercise, but they can complement your efforts.
If you’re overweight and can’t seem to achieve your health and fitness goals, weight loss medication can help.
Cutting Edge Testosterone Therapy LLC prescribes weight loss medication to people who struggle to lose weight through traditional methods, like diet and exercise. Typically, the team recommends medication to people with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher. You might also qualify for weight loss medication if you have a BMI lower than 30 and an underlying medical issue related to your weight, like diabetes or high blood pressure.
There are various types of weight loss medication. Cutting Edge Testosterone Therapy LLC might recommend:
is a dual glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and GLP-1 receptor agonist. GLP-1 and GIP are gut hormones called incretins, and the intestines release them when we eat.
Phentermine suppresses your appetite, so you don’t eat as much. It’s only prescribed for several weeks at a time because it can increase your risk of heart palpitations and dependence.
Semaglutide mimics an intestinal hormone that produces insulin. When your body produces excess insulin, you feel fuller and have decreased appetite. Cutting Edge Testosterone Therapy can make personalized treatment recommendations that align with your needs.
Your Cutting Edge Testosterone Therapy LLC provider reviews your health charts, completes a physical exam, and orders a series of lab tests. After gathering the necessary information, they prescribe a medication most likely to help you achieve your weight loss goals.
