My journey with Dr. Saxena has been priceless! Not only has she helped me lose weight but has put me on a journey to strive for better mental and physical health. My fat is as stubborn as my mind and with Dr. Saxena and the staff at Forum Health, my life has transformed. She helped me understand purely scientifically why I am the way I am and I am on my way of checking off many of my health goals - weight loss, elimination of medications and maintaining a stress free lifestyle!

Grateful for my experience here. The team is genuinely interested in helping you reach your goals. Be mindful that any weight loss program takes serious commitment and dedication on your end as well. Despite some of the hardships that come with weight loss, I felt I was in good hands here. After a month of being in their program, I'm finally at a "Normal" BMI for the first time in 4 years!! Special thanks to Arden and Marissa for all of the support!

I have never went with a nutritionist before until a friend of mine recommended one and her results just based off of eating healthier blew me away. I decided to take to Facebook and ask around for a local nutritionist that would be able to help me with my meal planning and figure out exactly what my body needed and was lacking. An overwhelming amount of people recommended Nuview so I decided to give it a shot! I am so pleased with all the information, all the staff and the supplements I have been given to help me gain my energy level and confidence back. Highly recommend the Clarkston team for helping with your weight loss journey.

Lost 25.5 lbs in 2 months! The best part has been loosing weight in a healthy way! I've started to wear dresses I couldn’t fit into before, This is amazing, I’m not killing myself to loose the weight like I have in the past! I have such a sweet tooth and I don't even think about sweets now, it takes the stress off of me not thinking about them, I just eat healthy foods from home to get the best results.

I have been coming to this weight loss clinic for several months now. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I originally started on the program with Charlene. She was able to clarify the program with me and gave me several program options. She took time to make sure I felt comfortable with the program I chose. My first week, I dropped 7 pounds. She was so encouraging and even told the entire waiting room. It reminded me of going to weight watchers. Everyone cheered! I felt super inspired. I have continued to lose weight and should be at my goal by the end of this month! Thanks for such a great job!

Semaglutide FAQ

It can be very frustrating when you’ve tried everything to lose weight or are suffering with other health conditions that prevent you from losing weight. 

 

The prescription weight loss medication GLP-1, the active ingredient in Wegovy and Ozempic, has shown to be an effective option for individuals struggling with obesity and weight loss resistance. It could be just the solution you’ve been waiting for! 

GLP-1, the active ingredient in Ozempic and Wegovy medications for type 2 diabetes, has been proven effective in helping people safely and effectively excess weight. 

 

Forum Health does not prescribe Ozempic specifically but instead offers a comprehensive personalized medical weight loss program that may include recommendations for GLP-1, liraglutide, tirzepatide, tesofensine, naltrexone, Amlexanox, Canagliflozin, or Sermorelin.

Ozempic’s active ingredient is GLP-1 – a medication that belongs to a class of drugs known as glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 agonists). While initially developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, GLP-1 has also been found to be effective in promoting weight reduction. 

 

There are several ways in which this effective injection for weight loss may contribute to helping people shed the extra pounds:

 

  1. Appetite suppression: A GLP-1 injection can help reduce appetite and increase feelings of fullness, which may result in reduced calorie intake. It acts on specific receptors in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake, leading to a decreased desire to eat.

  2. Slowing down stomach emptying: The weight loss injection GLP-1 can delay the emptying of the stomach, which helps to keep you feeling full for longer periods after a meal. This effect can lead to a reduced overall calorie intake.

  3. Modulating the reward system: GLP-1 may influence the brain’s reward system, reducing cravings and the desire for high-calorie foods. By altering the brain’s response to certain foods, it may help individuals make healthier food choices and consume fewer calories.

  4. Effects on insulin and blood sugar levels: GLP-1 improves insulin sensitivity and promotes better blood sugar control. By reducing insulin resistance and stabilizing blood glucose levels, it can help regulate appetite and decrease excessive food intake, thereby supporting weight loss.

 

It is important to note that GLP-1 should be taken under the guidance of a healthcare professional, and its use should be accompanied by a healthy lifestyle that includes a balanced diet and regular exercise. Individual responses to medication can vary, so it’s essential to consult a healthcare provider for a personalized medical weight loss program that offers advice and supervision.

Tirzepatide is an injectable peptide medication approved to help Type 2 diabetics control blood sugar. It mimics the hormones GIP and GLP-1 critical for regulating appetite, modulating fat utilization and decreasing food intake overall. The medication has received FDA Fast Track designation to speed up its application for weight loss; however, doctors are using it off label in medical weight loss programs.

Tirzepatide mimics the action of two different gut hormones – GIP and GLP-1 to help:

  • Lower blood sugar
  • Slow down the movement of food from the stomach
  • Regulate appetite
  • Modulate the utilization of fat
  • Make you feel fuller for longer

Both peptides work in similar but different ways. They’re in a class of medications known as GLP-1 agonists meaning that they mimic the hormone GLP-1 which is involved in blood sugar control and digestion.

Tirzepatide, however, mimics a second hormone called GIP, which plays a vital part in targeting receptors to inhibit caloric intake and stimulate satiety in the hypothalamus to give a sensation of fullness. With GLP-1 and GIP working together, Tirzepatide may offer patients greater blood glucose control and weight loss results.

 

You may start feeling the effects after your first dose and should begin experiencing weight loss within the first two weeks of your program. However, everyone’s weight loss journey is different and how much weight you have to lose will determine the duration of your program. However, once you reach your target dose you will see the most amount of weight loss.

 

A recent clinical study showed the use of Tirzepatide achieved up to 15.7% weight loss in participants with obesity or excess weight in an 18-month trial. The research also revealed patients who took Tirzepatide showed a significant improvement in their blood sugar, cholesterol, and blood pressure levels.

 

It is important to keep in mind that weight loss can take time, and you’ll see the best results when you are using your medication in combination with a healthy diet, exercise, and the support of a health coach.

You cannot buy GLP-1 or Tirzepatide without a prescription. Obtaining a prescription for either through a licensed medical professional is critical to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the medication. There are specific dosing guidelines to help prevent side effects and promote effectiveness in helping you to lose weight, so it’s not as easy as going to your local convenience store and purchasing it over the counter. 

One great part of the Forum Health program is being able to provide precision dosing, to provide the best weight loss results and the least amount of side effects. You need to go through a medical provider to determine if you are a good candidate for this weight loss medication, then receive your prescription for the injections, and finally begin your weight loss journey.

No - neither is a type of insulin or a substitute for insulin. Both simply stimulates your pancreas to release insulin when glucose (sugar) is present. Because GLP-1 and Tirzepatide rely on your body’s own insulin to be released from the pancreas, they aren’t used when your pancreas can’t make insulin, such as in patients in type 1 diabetes.

No, neither is a stimulant. While other weight loss medications, like phentermine, have stimulating effects that help curb your appetite, GLP-1 and Tirzepatide work differently. This means that it is safe for more people, especially those with high blood pressure, sleep issues, anxiety and more.

Both are administered as a weight loss injection in the stomach
