What Is SlimMed Shot?
The SlimMed Shot is a drug treatment recently approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for chronic weight management and is administered via subcutaneous injection. It is composed of the drug semaglutide, a GLP-1 receptor agonist which mimics the hormone known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), and affects the areas of the brain that help regulate food intake and appetite. SlimMed also contains levocarnitine which helps the body metabolize fat.
How Does SlimMed Help Lose Weight?
The SlimMed Shot helps boost the levels of GLP-1 in the body which is a key regulator of weight and blood sugar. It also helps to suppress the appetite through the brain, and it slows the rate at which the stomach empties to prolong the sensation of “fullness”. The patient consumes less food because their brain is no longer continually telling them they are hungry and their body metabolizes fat more efficiently. Combining the SlimMed injection with a healthy diet and exercise program promotes weight loss more effectively than just diet and exercise alone.
The SlimMed shot is offered at IBI Healthcare Institute and SurgiCare Arts & Aesthetics as part of a comprehensive weight loss program.
