Sadly, obesity has reached epidemic proportions in the United States, with one out of five children and two out of five adults categorized as clinically obese.
During the COVID crisis, obese people were 3X more likely to be hospitalized with the disease, according to the CDC.
Now, for the first time since 2014, the FDA has approved a new drug for chronic weight management. Semaglutide weight loss injections have been clinically proven to help obese adults, with or without other weight-related conditions, to successfully lose weight.
Semaglutide injections for weight loss are now available at Invita Cryo NYC. Read more to see if this promising new injection therapy is right for you.
Semaglutide is an injectable medication that mimics a digestive hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). GLP-1 is secreted in your intestines after a meal, to facilitate the digestive process. It sends a signal to your brain when you have reached satiety, to help regulate appetite and food intake.
Semaglutide helps to regulate the secretion of insulin and the release of glucagon, both factors that control blood glucose levels. Initial studies of semaglutide were geared to the regulation of Type II diabetes — sometimes called adult-onset diabetes — that is closely linked to obesity. Clinical trials revealed that semaglutide was not only effective for diabetes treatment, but also facilitated weight loss.
Semaglutide weight loss injections are administered once a week, for as long as necessary to help the recipient achieve their weight loss goal. To minimize side effects in the gastrointestinal tract, the dose is gradually increased over the course of 16 to 20 weeks until it reaches 2.4 mg.

When taken in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise, semaglutide weight loss injections can support healthy long-term weight loss.
The largest study was conducted on obese adults without diabetes. Those given semaglutide lost over 12% of their initial body weight compared to those given a placebo.
In another study of obese adults with Type II diabetes, participants lost of 6% of their initial body weight compared to the placebo group.

*Because semaglutide mimics a digestive hormone, the most common semaglutide weight loss side effects involve the digestive system. They include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, stomach pain, indigestion, and gassiness. Diabetics may experience low blood sugar. Dosage should be increased gradually over several weeks, to minimize uncomfortable side effects.
Semaglutide is not recommended for people with a medical or family history of thyroid cancer, or for those with a rare condition called multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN2).
