How It Works

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide (GPL-1) that helps to reduce appetite, control cravings and improve insulin resistance.

Your body's set point and semaglutide

All of our bodies have a “set point,” which is the range on the scale that your normal healthy weight hovers around.  This can be, say, 130 to 135 for some individuals, but determining this with our physician is one of the first steps in the program.

 What is Semaglutide and what does it do? 

Semaglutide mimics the body’s natural hormone called glucagon-like-peptide, which targets the area of the brain which regulates appetite and food intake.  So by controlling blood sugar spikes and lowering blood sugar, reducing appetite and cravings, maintaining food intake which extends the feeling of fullness for a longer period of time, and increasing energy levels it helps you to lose weight.

Creating Success

Semaglutide is a powerful resource for losing unwanted pounds, but if you want to get your health and life back you need to actively participate in the journey.  What do we mean by that?  Following our nutritional guidelines and recommendations, getting active, keeping a journal, and joining a support group!  The more you put into the program, the more you will get out of it, and our goal at Summit Peak Medical is to give you the tools necessary to create a healthier version of yourself!

Reach goals that have been out of your reach

I've tried it all and nothing works!

We know there are loads of weight loss programs, pills, injections, surgeries, and more on the market today.  Our goal is to get you to rethink the word DIET, which is far too often associated with losing weight.  Diet to us means “way of life,” and the way of life we want you to choose is a healthy one.  We provide customizable fitness plans, nutrition plans, accountability, and medication that offer real results.

Clinical Trials Show Results

Clinical Trials by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration showed patients on this amazing
drug lost an average 15% of their body weight or 35lbs, but with longer-term yields
showed results in a weight loss of 30%!


What if it doesn't work?

Great question!  There are indeed some individuals out there that have tried semaglutide and have been unsuccessful at losing any weight.  Though uncommon, it can happen.  We do encourage individuals to give the program at least 3 months, and if within that time they see no results, we set up a follow-up consult with the physician to discuss options.   

What are the alternatives?

Tirzepatide is new to the market for weight loss.  This medication has been found to be highly effective for weight loss for some patients, even more so than semaglutide.  We never want anyone to feel like it is hopeless, and we will work to find the best solution for you!

You are not a good candidate if.....

you have been diagnosed with one of the following:  pancreatitis, diabetic retinopathy, low blood sugar, kidney disease, reduced kidney function,  and certain types of cancer such as thyroid or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2.  The presence of other medical problems, such as depression and digestion issues, may also preclude you from using medications such as Semaglutide or Tirzepatide.  Your safety and health are the number one priority for us at Summit Peak Medical.
