JUDGEMENT.-FREE, COMPASSIONATE CARE FROM A WELCOMING MEDICAL TEAM.
We have helped many men and women
loose 15% - 20% of their body weight
even after things like gastric bypass have left them feeling hopeless.
We are here to say DO NOT GIVE UP ON YOURSELF!
Weight loss and weight management are not just about feeling good in our own skin but also about being HEALTHY and ENJOYING LIFE. Being overweight can prevent us from going to events, enjoying time with our loved ones, is stressful on the body and can lead to things like:
During your initial evaluation with one of our Board-Certified Nurse Practitioners, we will discuss your medical history, weight loss goals, and develop a plan to help you succeed.
Lab work may be recommended to determine if underlying factors like insulin resistance, hormone imbalance, thyroid disorder, or fatty liver may be preventing you from losing weight.
Some medications commonly prescribed for weight loss include:
Semaglutide is the active ingredient in Wegovy and Ozempic, a once-weekly injectable medication approved by the FDA to treat obesity and excess weight. This new treatment has led to significant weight loss (10-20% of body weight).
Home Kit General Guide - Please note that semaglutide is a prescription medication and will require a visit with one of our nurse practitioners (via telemedicine or in-office), for your initial prescription and any additional refills. Depending on your medical history, weight loss goals, and current medications, lab work may be required prior to prescribing or refilling. **Due to high demand, it is currently taking 14 business days for your medication to arrive at your doorstep from the date it is prescribed. Individual injections are offered in-office at the initial dose (0.25mg) for $35/ea. at or after your initial weight loss appointment in the interim for those that want to get started right away or learn how to administer your medication.
Home Kits include your medication and all needed injection supplies.
Aging Backwards works directly with compounding pharmacies to provide a cash price option for expensive medications like semaglutide in order to make medications more affordable to the public. Because we have a negotiated cash price that does not involve insurance or a "middle-man," many more patients are now able to access this medication than ever before. Additionally, since we are utilizing a compounding pharmacy, we are not impacting the available supply of this popular medication for diabetic patients utilizing insurance to purchase through commercial pharmacies such as CVS, Walgreens, and Walmart.
