What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide (SMGB12) is a synthetic version of the naturally occurring hormone Glucagon-like Peptide-1. It works by producing feelings of fullness, acting on appetite centers in the brain and gut. In the STEP1 study published by the New England Journal of Medicine, patients lost 14.9% of their body weight on average. Patients also experienced improved risk factors for heart disease, blood sugar levels, and quality of life.
How do I set up an appointment for a consultation?
You can request an online appointment at the Zoe Metabolix’s Clinic website or call us. Once your appointment is scheduled, we will email you the intake forms. The intake forms will include a clinical questionnaire and consent forms. If you do not see your intake form, please check your junk mail. Please note: The intake forms and consent forms must be filled out, signed, and submitted 24 hours before your appointment so that we can prepare your chart. If the intake form is not received by that time, the appointment will automatically be canceled and opened up for those on the waitlist for an expedited consultation. Remember, your signature on the consent forms is not a commitment to treatment. You are only signing that you have received the information within the consent forms.

How does the program work?

The program is undertaken with a video consult, and medications/supplies are shipped to you directly with clear direction. Every supply that you need will be in your shipment box. The very fine insulin syringes that come with your order give an impression of a brief pinch or touch. The needles are incredibly fine and designed to minimize discomfort. You may barely feel a thing as it goes in, and any sensation is usually over in a matter of seconds. It has often been described as quick mild pressure rather than pain.

Will insurance cover my medication?
No, we do not attempt to bill your insurance, Medicare, or Medicaid for this program.
Are labs required?
Sometimes, but optional. We will send an invoice electronically and once paid, the order will be sent to a Lab. You can book an appointment online or walk into the lab or any Lab service near you.
How often do I follow up?
The first follow-up visit is typically 3-4 weeks after starting injections. The second follow-up is at around 10-12 weeks. These follow-ups are through telehealth/telemedicine.
How do I administer Semaglutide (SMGB12)?
Semaglutide must be kept refrigerated. It is a once-weekly injection. You will receive a vial and insulin syringes and be responsible for administering your injection. Instructions for these injections are given at the consultation and also with your package. Dosing is based on the SMGB12 recommended (sample) dosing schedule. For example, 0.25mg or 0.75mg are injected once weekly for the first four weeks. Then the weekly dose increases by 0.25mg for four weeks. We may be required to adjust this dosing based on response and side effects. (The dosing card will direct the exact dose)
Is there a time limit to how long I can take Semaglutide?
There is no time limit to taking Semaglutide (SMGB12), and you can continue the medication if you do not meet your weight loss goal in the first 12 weeks. However, the price of each vial does not change, and the second vial will not last as long as the first, due to the continued dose increase needed to target weight loss goals.
Do I have to increase the dose to the maximum dose?
No. Each patient weight loss goals are different. Once patient reaches a desirable maintenance dose with increase weight loss and less side effects, patient will be left at this dose until such a time that patient is not experiencing weight loss, then the patient will be slightly bumped up to the next dose. Let’s say you continue the medication after the initial 12 weeks. At that point, you will typically take 1.5mg and about to increase to 1.75mg. If you want to stay at 1.5mg because you are losing weight and doing so without side effects and want to make this second vial last longer than it would if you increased the dose, then you may stay at 1.5mg.
Can I increase the dose faster than the recommended dosing schedule?
Yes, you can. However, the Semaglutide (SMGB12) dosing schedule is designed the way it is, to minimize side effects. If you choose to increase your dose faster than what is recommended by Semaglutide, then your vial will not last the entire 4-6 weeks. You also increase the risk of unwanted side effects (nausea, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, etc.)
What are the side effects of Semaglutide (SMGB12)?
Side effects vary significantly per individual. Some experience no side effects, but most will see some degree of the potential side effects. These are generally GI-related and can include nausea, vomiting, constipation, diarrhea, heartburn, belching, abdominal pain, fatigue, and headaches.
What are the potential risks of Semaglutide (SMGB12)?
  • Gallstones or gallbladder disease is a possible risk with any weight loss plan.
  • Thyroid C-cell tumors were observed in rodent studies, but this was not observed in either human or monkey studies.
  • Acute kidney injury from dehydration if significant vomiting or diarrhea occurs.
  • Hypersensitivity/allergic reactions.
Can Semaglutide (SMGB12) cause hypoglycemia?
Patients on insulin or insulin secretagogues/sulfonylureas like glimepiride or glyburide are at risk for hypoglycemia when taking Semaglutide. Dose adjustments of these medications may need to be made when taken with Semaglutide.
How long does it take to get my medication?
Once consent forms are received, and the invoice is paid, it will typically take 3-5 business days to receive your medication.
Who should NOT take Semaglutide (SMGB12)?
Patients with a personal or family history of Medullary Thyroid Cancer or Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia type II should not take Semaglutide. You should not take this medication if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. You should take all necessary precautions to avoid becoming pregnant if you plan on using Semaglutide (SMGB12). If you become pregnant while taking it, stop immediately and call the office. Also, avoid while breastfeeding.
