Our Medical Weight Loss Program in Pittsburgh, PA

If you want to lose weight and improve your health, the Sanctuary Wellness Institute can help.

Participants in our medical weight loss program use compounded semaglutide and tirzepatide injections, which suppress appetite and cravings to generate weight loss. The vast majority of people who receive these injections lose a significant amount of weight over a period of several months.

Tirzepatide is the active ingredient in weight loss medications such as Mounjaro and Zepbound, whereas Ozempic and Wegovy contain semaglutide. The FDA has approved both of these drugs, as well as the compounding pharmacy with whom we work.

Our program also includes ongoing physician supervision and care team support.

What is Compounded Semaglutide?

Compounded semaglutide

Compounded semaglutide is semaglutide that has been prescribed to a specific patient and produced in a compounding facility approved by the FDA or a state pharmacy board. Compounding pharmacies must use substances from FDA-approved vendors. Additionally, these pharmaceuticals always undergo potency, sterility, and purity testing.

Although it’s legal to manufacture compounded medication, FDA pre-market approval is not required because these drugs are not produced in large quantities for the general population. Instead, they are made in response to specific demands made by healthcare professionals. As a result, these prescriptions may require different dosages and administration techniques than name-brand drugs.

About Semaglutide Injections

girl with laptop

Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist. Such medications imitate the appetite-suppressing and digestion-delaying effects of the GLP-1 hormone.

Semaglutide, the principal ingredient in Wegovy* and Ozempic*, is FDA approved following thorough testing for safety and efficacy. Semaglutide also has a better track record than other weight-loss drugs

How Semaglutide Shots Work

Semaglutide is meant to be self-injected subcutaneously once a week. Users eat fewer calories as a result of the drug decelerating gastric emptying and digestion.

Furthermore, semaglutide affects the part of the brain responsible for cravings and hunger, empowering users to exercise better control over the size and frequency of their meals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Medical weight loss is a holistic, doctor-supervised method of achieving and maintaining a healthy weight. It consists of a personalized regimen that can include dietary adjustments, increased physical activity, behavioral modification, and, if necessary, the use of prescription drugs such as semaglutide.

This treatment not only helps patients lose weight, but also teaches them how to keep it off.

Participating in medical weight loss programs has helped many people attain their weight loss goals. These programs facilitate weight loss by utilizing a tried-and-true strategy that extends beyond diet and exercise.

Your online consultation will be similar to a traditional doctor's appointment. More specifically, the doctor will review your medical history, evaluate whether you are a good candidate for semaglutide, and, if necessary, help you set achievable weight loss objectives.

The cost of semaglutide injections can vary depending on a number of factors, including your region, the dosage, and whether your insurance covers the medication. But in general, if you do not have insurance, you should budget about $800 to $1,000 per month.

Certain Medicare programs and health insurance companies cover semaglutide injections, at least in part. Novo Nordisk also provides a patient assistance program for those experiencing financial challenges.

Semaglutide injections are prescribed via telemedicine through the Sanctuary Wellness Institute's weight loss clinic in Pittsburgh, PA. We deliver this medication directly to our patients' homes, allowing them to administer it themselves.

When you choose the Sanctuary, you can complete the entire semaglutide prescription process online. Our patients can fill their semaglutide prescriptions, submit payments, and arrange and attend doctor's visits from the comfort of their own homes.

Semaglutide generates weight loss at a different rate for each user. However, research indicates that weight loss usually begins within the first few weeks of taking the medicine.

The time it takes to lose 20 pounds on semaglutide can vary substantially between patients based on their metabolic rates, physical activity, and nutrition. However, research shows that semaglutide users lose about five pounds per month, meaning the average user would need about four months to drop 20 pounds.

The duration of your semaglutide treatment will be determined by your objectives, how your body reacts to the drug, and your doctor's advice. In general, though, semaglutide is used to help people lose weight in the long-term. Patients often use the medication for several months, a year, or even longer.

Your doctor should decide the length of your treatment based on how your body reacts to semaglutide and how rapidly you lose weight on it.

Semaglutide is not suitable for everyone. People with a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) or Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Syndrome type 2 (MEN 2) should avoid taking the drug. Semaglutide is also not recommended for patients with a history of severe gastrointestinal diseases like pancreatitis because it can exacerbate such conditions.

Pregnant or breastfeeding women should consult their doctors before using semaglutide, as the medicine can pose a risk to the health of fetuses and babies. Additionally, individuals who are allergic to semaglutide or any of its components should not use it.

Though semaglutide fosters weight loss, including the loss of visceral fat around the abdomen, users must exercise consistently and eat a well-balanced diet to see marked results. Semaglutide is not a miracle drug that will eliminate belly fat on its own, but it can help you shed such fatwhen paired with a healthy lifestyle.

Semaglutide injections, like all drugs, can induce side effects. Common ones include constipation, diarrhea, vomiting, nausea, and gastric distress. These effects normally subside once your body adjusts to the medicine.

Nonetheless, you should speak to your doctor before taking semaglutide, and if you suffer from any serious or persistent side effects during your treatment, be sure to notify them.
