FAQs About Our Weight Loss Program 

  • Semaglutide is a drug that was originally created for diabetes. It acts on the glucagon-like peptide receptor-1 in the hypothalamus and hindbrain portions of the brain to make patients feel full. In so doing, it significantly reduces patients’ appetites causing them to lose significant amounts of weight.

  • In the Step 5 trials, patients lost an AVERAGE of 16.7% of their total body weight! That means that a patient that weighed 200 lbs, could expect to get down to around 166 lbs. Someone that started at 175 lbs could get down to around 146 lbs, and someone that started at 150 lbs could expect to get down to around 125 lbs!!!

    Studies have also shown that patients lost on average 5.7 inches off their waist! Imagine going from a 38-inch waist to a 32-inch waist without surgery!

  • If you are considering body contouring surgery, losing weight with Semaglutide either before or after your surgery will only enhance your curves even more!

  • The majority of common side effects involve mild gastrointestinal issues such as nausea (average 5 days), vomiting (average 2 days), diarrhea (average 3 days), constipation (average 27 days). Over 94% of patients are able to tolerate these side effects without stopping the Semaglutide.

    Rare side effects include the development of gallstones (4.9% of patients), and pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas). In animals, Semaglutide has been associated with the development of a rare type of cancer known as Medullary Carcinoma of the thyroid type 2. This has not been shown to happen with significant frequency in humans.

  • The largest weight loss is seen over the first 6 months of Semaglutide use. That being said, studies have now shown that Semaglutide can be used for two years with continued weight loss over this time.

  • The largest weight loss is seen over the first 6 months of Semaglutide use. That being said, studies have now shown that Semaglutide can be used for two years with continued weight loss over this time.

  • Liraglutide is another glucagon-like peptide receptor-1 analogue; however, Semaglutide has been shown in head-to-head studies to provide more weight loss than Liraglutide.

    Phentermine is a very effective weight loss drug but is associated with cardiovascular problems such as heart valve defects and pulmonary hypertension.

    Orlistat has been shown to help lose weight; however, the weight loss is significantly less than with Semaglutide and patients can have significant steatorrhea (oily diarrhea). It has also been associated with renal failure and liver damage.

  • Patients in Virginia who are overweight but do not suffer from diabetes, cancer, heart, liver or kidney problems, and do not have a history of medullary cancer of the thyroid type 2 are candidates for Semaglutide therapy.

Grace Health Services LLC is amazing! I was struggling with my weight for years and tried countless diets without success. The staff here listened to my concerns and crafted a plan that worked for me. The combination of phentermine tablets and B12 shots gave me the energy I needed and helped me curb my cravings. I love that the meal plans were included at no extra cost. I’ve already recommended them to my friends!
