What is semaglutide-assisted weight loss?

Semaglutide-assisted weight loss refers to the use of the prescription medication semaglutide, a once-weekly injection, to aid in the process of losing weight.

Who should get semaglutide-assisted weight loss?

Semaglutide-assisted weight loss (Wegovy) is FDA-approved for adults who have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 kg/m² or higher (considered obese) or a BMI of 27 kg/m² or higher (considered overweight) with at least one weight-related health condition, such as high blood pressure, high cholesterol, obstructive sleep apnea, and type 2 diabetes.

Benefits of semaglutide-assisted weight loss?

  • Significant and sustained weight loss when used in conjunction with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity


In addition to weight loss, semaglutide-assisted weight loss can also decrease appetite, increase satiety, and improve blood sugar control which reduces the risk of developing type 2 diabetes.  Weight loss itself can lead to improved health outcomes and cardiovascular benefits, such as reduced risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, certain cancers, and can decrease chronic inflammation, joint problems, and gastrointestinal disorders.

Semaglutide has been safely used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes since 2017 and for the treatment of overweight and obesity since 2021.

While clinical trials have shown significant weight loss with semaglutide, the long-term safety of using semaglutide for weight loss is still an area of ongoing research. The safety of semaglutide can vary based on an individual’s medical history, existing health conditions, and other factors. It’s important to work closely with your healthcare provider to determine if semaglutide-assisted weight loss is a safe and suitable and safe option for your specific situation and to monitor your progress while on the medication.

Within the first few weeks to a month of using semaglutide, it’s common for individuals to begin experiencing weight loss. Over the course of 3-6 months, many individuals experience more substantial weight loss with clinical trial results showing an average weight loss ranging from approximately 12% to 15% of initial body weight over a span of several months.

It’s important to remember that weight loss is a gradual process, and individual results can vary.

Semaglutide is FDA-approved for weight loss and for weight maintenance, which means the medication is intended for long-term use to maintain weight loss results over time.  Studies show that when people stop taking semaglutide, they’re likely to regain the weight they lost while taking it, which is why people need to continue taking it to maintain their weight loss. It’s also important to remember that semaglutide is designed to be used as part of a comprehensive weight management plan, which includes a balanced diet and increased physical activity. To sustain the weight loss results achieved during treatment, it’s important to continue taking the medicine as prescribed in conjunction with continuing any healthy habits and lifestyle changes.

Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and decreased appetite. These side effects often occur early in treatment, are generally mild, and tend to improve over time as the body adjusts to the medication.

Before & After

Semaglutide-assisted weight loss Honolulu


From Our Dear Customers

I have been seeing Dr. Martha for just over 11 months. I have been a physically active gym gal since high school, and I’ve always tried to eat right, even tried popular diets (plant-based, Keto, Paleo, Whole30, DASH, Weight Watchers, Noom, self-directed calorie/exercise tracking apps, Intermittent Fasting, Various “smoothie” programs). As I age and especially after pregnancies, losing weight became increasingly harder. As a middle-age woman, I worry more about my genetic makeup in reducing risks that are associated with being overweight. It’s not a matter of just doing things the “simple” (ha!) way of dieting and exercising. I have done that for years. Martha’s guidance and management of my obesity has been LIFE-CHANGING! I have eliminated BP medication, I’ve lost and kept off more than 50 lbs, and I have reduced my cardiovascular, diabetes, and mortality risk associated with being overweight. I am reassured that my chances of enjoying a quality life and living a longer one with my family and friends are greater, thanks to Dr. Martha. Every pound lost was gradual, and every one of those successes motivated me more to continue healthy eating and exercise. It’s an amazing cycle, and a wonderful gift that Dr. Martha helped perpetuate! Her enthusiasm for the cause, excellent listening, ever-evolving competence are just some of the reasons why I recommend her. Go, now! It is all worth it! YOU are worth it!


Dr. Martha is so caring and thorough. She really took time to listen to my history and concerns so that she could treat me appropriately. I have been successful in my weight loss for the first time thanks to her! I would recommend her to anyone!
