What Is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is the newest FDA-approved treatment for weight loss that is getting all the hype these days. Researchers have actively figured out its role in chronic weight management. After a series of clinical trials and countless case studies, the FDA has now approved Semaglutide for managing weight loss.
GLP-1s FIGHT WEIGHT WITH BIOLOGY
GLP-1s are not stimulants, non-habit forming and are clinically-proven to be the most effective medications for long-term results. They work on the same receptors as powerful, naturally-occurring GLP-1 hormones that exist in your body, which improve your metabolic function, and regulate your digestion so you can feel full longer and maximize nutrient absorption. GLP-1s also have far-reaching benefits including reducing inflammation and cardiovascular disease risk to help you not only lose weight, but also live a longer and healthier life.
GLP-1s are different from older classes of weight loss medications (like phentermine) because they work on key underlying metabolic pathways to support sustained weight loss, not a quick fix.
Who Can Take It?
Obesity has continually been on the rise for the past six to seven decades. In fact, the CDC estimates that up to 73 percent of Americans aged 20 and above are overweight. When left unmanaged for a long time, obesity gives rise to many health illnesses, including:
• Heart diseases;
• Arthritis, and;
• Certain cancers.
That’s where healthy weight management comes in. Losing five to 10 percent weight through a healthy diet and regular exercise has been shown to lower the risk of getting diabetes by 58 percent. Weight loss also protects your heart by reducing the risk of heart diseases and controlling high blood pressure.
Semaglutide is best used for boosting weight loss in overweight people with established weight-related health issues. For example, overweight adults who suffer from conditions, like high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, and high cholesterol, can achieve better weight loss by taking Semaglutide, in addition to clean eating and exercise.
The FDA has recently approved a once-weekly injection of Semaglutide 2.4mg for weight management in adults whose:
• BMI is 27 kg/m² and suffer from diabetes and high blood pressure, or;
• BMI is greater than 30kg/m².
Semaglutide is given through a subcutaneous injection under the skin or by mouth. It works uniquely by mimicking the effect of insulin to lower your blood sugar levels. Moreover, it controls specific areas of your brain that regulate appetite and food intake. As a result, your appetite is suppressed, your food cravings are reduced, and you can better control your eating patterns.
Another approved clinical indication of Semaglutide is to reduce the risk of serious cardiovascular events in adults suffering from chronic heart diseases.
Benefits of Taking Semaglutide
Weight loss is hands-down one of the best benefits of taking Semaglutide. Coupled with healthy eating and exercise, the drug has been shown to reduce 10 to 15 percent of body weight in obese individuals who have type 2 diabetes. In fact, scientists believe Semaglutide is twice as effective as other available treatments for obesity.
Another significant benefit of Semaglutide is its effectiveness in treating type 2 diabetes. It’s given by mouth and helps in lowering blood sugar, controlling weight, and reducing high blood pressure. Plus, it can be used alone or in combination with other anti-diabetic drugs to control blood sugar.
Is It Safe?
A bunch of different studies have reviewed whether Semaglutide is a safe and effective treatment option for long-term weight management. Some of these studies found:
A clinical trial study recently published in The Lancet has discovered that using multiple doses of Semaglutide along with Cagrilintide is a safe treatment option to go with.
Another research studied the safety profile of oral Semaglutide against sitagliptin over a period of 52 weeks. The results revealed that most patients tolerated Semaglutide well and showed significant weight reduction and lower HBA1C overtime.
A recent 2021 clinical review revealed that both oral and injectable formulations of Semaglutide are safe and effective in lowering sugar and weight management and are associated with a lower risk of hypoglycemia.
Semaglutide is a safe drug proven to be effective in chronic weight management in adults. Though it was approved as a treatment for type 2 diabetes several years back, Semaglutide recent approval for weight management promises better treatment outcomes.
Not only is the drug several times more effective than other weight management drugs out there, but it’s also helpful in preventing severe chronic illnesses such as heart disease and high blood pressure down the line.

Why do we need hormone testing?
One size does not fit all when it comes to hormones! For decades western medicine has prescribed HRT as if everyone needed the same thing, nothing could be further from the truth. Hormones are like fingerprints and to achieve optimal health, you need to know your specific imbalances. Through lab tests hormonal status can be found, but what kind? Premier offers a complete blood work analysis with a complete physical and medical health history evaluation. This determines your eligibility for hormone replacement.
Which hormones need testing?
The major players in the sex hormone arena are estrogens, progesterone and testosterone. The main adrenal hormones are DHEA and cortisol. These five hormones will provide crucial information about your deficiencies, excesses and daily patterns, which results in a treatment approach specially tailored for you.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF HORMONES:
• Important in both men and women
• Increases bone density and muscle strength
• Deficiency in men associated with: andropause, aging,
prostate disease, heart disease, and depression
• Deficiency in women associated with: osteoporosis
and low libido.
• The major active estrogen in both men and women.
• Metabolic product of testosterone.
• In men, excess estrogen is associated with metabolic syndrome and obesity.
• In women too little estrogen is associated with menopause, vaginal dryness and hot flashes.
• Screens for basis adrenal function.
• Acts to mitigate against inflammatory process and stress.
• Too much can result in damage and too little make the
body susceptible to injury and fatigue
• The primary adrenal hormone.
• Elevates mood, improves memory and enhances immune function.
• In women it is associated strongly with testosterone.
• Induces sleep.
• A metabolite of serotonin and deficiency may indicate a deficiency of serotonin.
• A strong antioxidant to the brain.
• Restores circadian rhythm.
Growth Hormone HGH »
• Steady decline associated with aging.
• Increases lean body mass (muscle) and decreases adipose (fat).
• Enhances bone and muscle growth.
• Balances the effect of estrogen on the uterus, promotes bone growth and calms the mood.
• In men protects against prostate cancer.
• In women protects against osteoporosis, menopause, hot flashes.
• In women deficiency associated with insomnia and irritability (eg PMS).
Thyroid T4 & T3 »
• The two primary thyroid hormones.
• Regulates metabolism.
• Of the two, T3 is the bioactive form whereas the T4 serves as the reservoir for T3.
• Low levels of thyroid result in constipation, dry skin,
fatigue, muscle achiness, insomnia, irritability and
Bio-identical hormones have the same chemical structure as hormones that are made by the human body. This is in contrast to synthetic hormones which are modified chemically and are not completely recognized by the bod. This may contribute to many undesirable side effects. The term "bio-identical" does not indicate the source of the hormone, but rather indicates that the chemical structure of the replacement hormone is identical to that of the hormone naturally found in the human body. In order for a replacement hormone to fully replicate the function of hormones, which were originally naturally produced, and present in the human body, the chemical structure must exactly match the original. Bio-identical hormones are able to follow metabolic pathways so that essential active metabolites are formed in response to hormone replacement therapy.
Hormone Replacement for Women
Hormone related symptoms or problems occur throughout the feminine life cycle. With time and as women age, the bodies balance of hormones can be altered. This can be associated with a decrease or increase in her normal hormonal levels.
This imbalance can lead to many symptoms including:
Weight gain, vaginal dryness, insomnia, osteoporosis, irritability, fatigue & tiredness, decreased libido, hot flashes, night sweats, poor concentration, depression, mood swings, decreased skin elasticity and many other serious ailments.
Low-T (Testosterone) Programs for Men
Low T is a condition in which our natural production of testosterone begins to decline. A very common occurrence in men as we age affecting mens overall well-being.
Some common symptoms of Low T include:
Erectile dysfunction, decreased libido, sex drive, fatigue & extreme tiredness, decreased mental clarity, decreased muscle mass & tone, irritability & insomnia, increased weight gain & body fat, lack of focus & concentration, decreased physical stamina.
Growth Hormone like many of our hormones decreases over time as we age. Growth hormone serves to stimulate cell growth and repair. When growth hormone levels decline this process become less effective leading to premature or advanced aging. Unlike Human Growth Hormone, Sermorelin is a secretagogue. This means that instead of replacing growth hormone, it stimulates the pituitary gland to secrete the production of it's own natural supply of growth hormone. Patients achieve many of the same benefits of growth hormone supplementation. Sermorelin is also a more cost effective approach to enhancing natural growth hormone production.
EFFECTIVE ALTERNATIVE TO HGH FOR MEN AND WOMEN
Reduction in Growth Hormone levels has been linked to some of the following:
► Skin: Decreased elasticity, texture, and tightness, particularly in the face
► Energy: Decreased energy and emotional stability
► Bones: Decreased bone strength and mass
► Libido: Decreased sex drive
► Muscle: Decreased muscle strength and mass
► Fat: Increased body fat, particularly in the abdomen

► Heart: Diminished cardiovascular strength and higher blood pressure
► Kidney: Diminished kidney function
► Immune System: Weakened immunity and healing
► Hair: Lessened and thinning hair texture
► Cholesterol: Lowered HDL (good cholesterol) and elevated LDL (bad cholesterol)
► Mental Health: Decreased emotional stability and sense of well being
► Metabolism: Decreased metabolism and lessened ability to control weight

Nutrition therapy programs are unique because they are based on a foundational approach to nutrition. We offer specific tools for assessing the body’s nutritional deficiencies and will teach you how to address those weaknesses through diet, supplements and lifestyle changes.
Vitamin Therapy Programs:
Vitamins are essential nutrients that contribute to a healthy life. Although most people get all the vitamins they need from the foods they eat, millions of people worldwide take supplemental vitamins as part of their health regimen. There are many good reasons to consider starting a vitamin program, your body uses vitamins for a variety of biological processes, including growth, digestion, and nerve function. There are 13 vitamins that the body absolutely needs: vitamins A, C, D, E, K, and the B vitamins (thiamine, riboflavin, niacin, pantothenic acid, biotin, vitamin B-6, vitamin B-12 and folate). Our vitamin programs here at Premier ensure that your body is getting all the required vitamins it needs to life a better and healthier lifestyle.
IV Vitamin Therapy Programs:
IV vitamin therapy provides the vitamins, minerals, and amino acids your body needs, in the most efficient and effective way.

Functional Medicine Therapy Programs:
Functional medicine addresses the underlying causes of disease, using a systems-oriented approach and engaging both patient and practitioner in a therapeutic partnership. It is an evolution in the practice of medicine that better addresses the healthcare needs of the 21st century. By shifting the traditional disease-centered focus of medical practice to a more patient-centered approach, functional medicine addresses the whole person, not just an isolated set of symptoms. Functional medicine practitioners spend time with their patients, listening to their histories and looking at the interactions among genetic, environmental, and lifestyle factors that can influence long-term health and complex, chronic disease. In this way, functional medicine supports the unique expression of health and vitality for each individual.
Lipo Lean Injections
If the conventional method of diet and exercise for losing weight isn’t working for you, then look no further. You may not have considered that what you need is a replenishment of important vitamins and minerals that your body is lacking. You may be in dire need of the essential vitamins and minerals that enable you to lose the fat and burn off the pounds. The overall effect of Lipotropic injections is enhanced weight loss, particularly when they are combined with a healthy diet and exercise program.
Vitamin B-12 is the "energy vitamin" as it often increases the energy level helping to prevent fatigue. It also helps to suppress the appetite in weight loss programs as well as having a mild diuretic effect. It stimulates the utilization of proteins, fats, and carbohydrates in the body. It is an essential water-soluble vitamin that is commonly found in a variety of foods such as fish, shellfish, meats, and dairy products, but unfortunately our bodies sometimes do not receive enough of it. B-12 helps maintain healthy nerve cells and red blood cells and is also needed to make DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Here at Premier we offer top quality B-12 shots that help with increased energy and potential weight loss assistance.
Vitamin injection therapy is essentially direct venous injection through an IV bag filled with mega-dose amounts of select vitamins and elements into your bloodstream so that your body can reach high levels of nutrients that would otherwise not be possible via the digestive tract after swallowing a multivitamin pill. A typical vitamin injection consists primarily of calcium, magnesium, vitamins C, B-12, B-6, B-5 and a combination of trace elements that the body needs for normal functioning.
Vitamin injection therapy is needed by many because we are nutrient deficient due to our modern day diet. Vitamin Injection is especially useful for people who are already healthy, but want to go from feeling good to feeling great!
Amino Acid Injections
Injectable amino acids are considered by many to be the best and most effective form of supplements to supply to your body. In a society where the normal, standard diet of the average American consists of processed foods that are completely void of any nutrition at all, it’s a no-brainer why being overweight and obese is an epidemic that’s spreading way too fast.
Supplementing with amino acids to lose weight can balance your hormones, put metabolic processes in working order, and replenish your body with much-needed nutrition. Getting a little bit of the good stuff like vitamins and amino acids can mean getting rid of all the bad stuff like fat, bile, and abnormal and foreign compounds.
