Medical Weight Management

Semaglutide and tirzepatide are popular, groundbreaking medications revolutionizing weight loss treatment. LIC LAB offers personalized weight loss programs incorporating these medications, prioritizing patient safety and overall health.

Semaglutide and tirzepatide belong to the class of GLP-1 receptor agonists, mimicking the action of the natural hormone GLP-1 in the body. These medications work by regulating appetite and metabolic function, leading to reduced calorie intake and enhanced weight loss.

Semaglutide, initially developed as a treatment for type 2 diabetes, has demonstrated remarkable efficacy in weight management. When administered at a higher dose than used for diabetes treatment, semaglutide works by reducing appetite and food cravings, leading to decreased calorie intake. Additionally, it slows down gastric emptying, which helps people feel full for longer periods, promoting reduced food consumption and, consequently, weight loss.

Similarly, tirzepatide, a newer GLP-1 receptor agonist, is a highly efficacious therapy for weight management. Tirzepatide not only targets the GLP-1 receptor but also the receptor for another hormone called glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP). By activating both receptors, tirzepatide promotes greater suppression of appetite and more efficient control of blood sugar levels, leading to enhanced weight loss outcomes compared to drugs that target only the GLP-1 receptor.

At LIC LAB, we understand that weight loss is not one-size-fits-all. Our approach to weight management combines pharmaceutical interventions with individualized care. Before prescribing semaglutide or tirzepatide, our experienced healthcare professionals conduct a thorough assessment of each patient’s medical history, health status, and weight loss goals.

Our weight loss programs are tailored to meet the unique needs of each patient. We provide personalized guidance on medication dosage, nutritional counseling, exercise plans, and behavioral modifications to optimize weight loss outcomes while ensuring patient safety and overall health.

With our comprehensive and patient-centered approach, LIC LAB is dedicated to helping individuals achieve their weight loss goals safely, effectively, and sustainably, ultimately improving their quality of life and overall well-being.
