Weight loss

Semaglutide

Tirzepatide

Customized nutrition plans

Wegovy/Compounded Semaglutide and Zepbound/Compounded Tirzepatide

Wegovy and Zepbound have been approved by the FDA for chronic weight management in obese/overweight patients.

These simple to use once a week subcutaneous injections have bolstered weight loss beyond our expectations at Dr. Rogers Centers.

Dr. Rogers Centers utilizes both Wegovy and Zepbound and the compounded forms Semaglutide and Tirzepatide for weight loss and maintenace.

How does Semaglutide and Tirzepatide work?

These medications both work on the glucagon-like peptide-1(GLP-1) receptor and Zepbound also works on the glucose-dependent insulinotrophic polypeptide(GIP).

The medications have shown a reduction in body weight when accompanied by calorie restriciton and moderate exercise.

Dr. Rogers Centers recommends these medications for:

  • Weight Loss and "Recomping the Body"
  • Improve insulin resistance and glucose levels
  • Enhance metabolism and cardioprotection
  • Decrease inflammatory markers
  • Decrease gastrointestinal inflammation
  • Appetitie control

What was the average weight loss for Semaglutide and Tirzepatide in weight loss studies?

  • The studies for Semaglutide show at week 68, the mean weight change from baseline while using once weekly dosing was up to 17%.
  • The studies show for Tirzepatide at week 68, the mean weight change from baseling while using once weekly dosing was a little over 20%.
  • Both of the drugs have proven to be more effective than any other medication to date.

Benefits of the medications?

  • Weight Loss
  • Improved glucose control
  • Improved fertility
  • Positive cardiovascular effects
  • Treatment of Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS)
  • Decrease in Fatty Liver

Difference between Wegovy and Zepbound?

  • Zepbound is better tolerated by some patients because it has less nausea associated symptoms.
  • In head to head studies of Mounjaro and Ozempic, Mounjaro proved greated weight loss than Ozempic.
  • In addition, compounded Tirzepatide is more expensive than compounded semaglutide.

Dr. Rogers Centers considers both medications to be very effective for weight loss and maintenace.

During the initial weight loss appointment the medications will be discussed and together with your provider the best medication for you will be prescribed.

It is common in our clinic for patients to try compounded Semaglutide first and then move to the compounded Tirzepatide if the side effects of the semaglutide are not tolerable.

Common side effects of the medication?

Fortunately, at Dr. Rogers Centers the side effects from the medications are minimal with our experienced medical and nutritional staff.

The most common side effects our patients experience are nausea and constipation.

We discuss remedies for both at your initial evaluation to reduce the potential for possible side effects. We suggest taking the shot at night before bed and using ondansterone as needed for nausea. In addition, we discuss a

In addition, we discuss a regiment for the possibilty of constipation brought about by the mechanism of action of the drugs.

Other common side effects that can be heartburn, bloating, fatigue ands headache.

Maintenance Program

Dr. Rogers Centers weight loss program from day one is focused on weight loss maintenance. Our goal is to lose weight at the highest caloric amount possible. We believe minimal reduction in calories and macronutrient manipulation allows for easier weight maintenance. We suggest striving for or maintaining at least 5 hours a week of exercise for weight maintenace. Before, we move into weight maintenace phase we believe transitioning the metabolism for maintenance is a key.

Accountability

Our program provides accountabilty for weight check-ins, medication refills and nutritional counseling. During the initial month not only will you meet with one of medical providers to design your plan, but also one of our nutritional staff to explain the weight loss nutritional plan.
