Semaglutide Metabolic Optimization

If you’re struggling to lose weight, you may have heard about a relatively new diabetes medication for weight loss. Semaglutide is the active ingredient in Ozempic®, Wegovy®, and Rybelsus®—FDA-approved insulin management drugs whose side effects include weight loss of up to 30%. Now you can optimize your metabolism and boost weight loss with semaglutide at our Baton Rouge and New Orleans-area clinics. Rejuvime Medical prescribes compounded semaglutide at a fraction of the cost of the brand name formulations. 

What Is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is the active ingredient in Ozempic and other medications which are prescribed for weight loss and insulin management for diabetics and people diagnosed as obese. It is a medication that mimics your body’s own natural appetite-suppressing hormone and improves your ability to regulate blood sugar levels. It helps with weight loss by reducing hunger and stabilizing blood sugar.

How Much Does Semaglutide (Generic Ozempic) Cost?

Brand-name semaglutide medications such as Ozempic can cost $1,000 or more per month. At Rejuvime Medical, we offer generic semaglutide for $260 per month as part of our VIP membership which includes medical monitoring, such as blood tests, and having the medication shipped to your home. These cost savings and convenience has made semaglutide a popular treatment option for patients seeking glucose management.

What Are the Benefits of Semaglutide?

The Endocrine Society, whose members include scientists and physicians dedicated to hormone research and treatment for hormone-related conditions, says studies have shown that semaglutide improved body composition by reducing excess body fat and increasing the proportion of lean body mass. In general, bioidentical hormone replacement therapy can also affect weight gain.

According to a 2020 report from Trust for America’s Health, 4 in 10 American adults meet the criteria of obesity, while statistics from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention show that 37.3 million Americans have diabetes.

How Does Semaglutide Work?

By mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), semaglutide targets the area of the brain that regulates appetite. It’s a powerful appetite suppressant and also works by increasing the production of insulin. It also inhibits the production of glucagon, a hormone that increases blood sugar.


  • Delays the emptying of the stomach, leading to a feeling of fullness
  • Slows the contraction of muscles that propel food in the gastrointestinal tract
  • Lowers blood sugars
  • Stimulates the secretion of insulin by the pancreas

Besides weight loss, you may have some side effects from semaglutide, such as nausea, which can be managed by adjusting the dosage.
