Did you know that 70% of Americans are overweight?

And that one in three are considered obese? In fact, 42% of adults in the U.S. gained an average of 29 pounds during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Obesity increases the risk for many serious diseases and health conditions:

  • All-causes of death (mortality)
  • High blood pressure (hypertension)
  • High LDL cholesterol, low HDL cholesterol or high levels of triglycerides
  • Type 2 diabetes
  • Coronary heart disease
  • Stroke
  • Gallbladder disease
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Sleep apnea and breathing problems
  • Many types of cancer
  • Low quality of life and self esteem
  • Mental illness such as clinical depression, anxiety, and other mental disorders
  • Body pain and difficulty with physical functioning

Your body also has a “set point” which is the number on the scale your weight normally hovers around. The treatment plan creates a new, lower set point after you lose your weight goal amount.

Can I take it at any time of the day?
Can I change the day I take it?
How do I dispose of the syringe?
What do I do if the liquid in my vial isn't clear?
Do I need to eat before or after taking my medicine?

That is up to you, you can take your medicine with or without food.
