21 Jun What Is The Cost Of Ongoing Wegovy Treatment?
The cost of the Wegovy can seem daunting at first, but once you’ve had a taste of its benefits, you’ll soon discover that the cost of ongoing Wegovy treatment is more than worth it! There are many ways to reduce the initial costs associated with dieting, but we’ll focus on one in particular—the role exercise plays in managing your weight and keeping future costs low.
What is Wegovy?
Wegovy is a once-weekly injectable prescription medication that can assist patients with long-term weight management. The injectable drug helps patients lose and maintain weight for years. Adults being prescribed Wegove are those whose BMI is considered overweight or obese and have at least one health condition like high cholesterol or diabetes.
After you’ve been on Wegovy for a period of time, your healthcare provider will discuss if you are still benefiting from taking it or if you might be able to manage your weight by following a healthy diet and exercising regularly.
Those who receive Wegovy can expect to see benefits like slowing stomach emptying, reducing appetite, and increasing insulin release. The medication can help patients lose weight by minimizing hunger cravings while also helping them feel full after eating smaller portions.
Before receiving Wegovy, you’ll need to receive a consultation and lab work done to ensure you’re a good fit for Wegovy treatments. You’ll have an introductory appointment with a doctor or nurse who will assess whether you are healthy enough to begin taking Wegovy and will guide you through what symptoms should indicate it’s time to contact them again. Once determined you’re a good fit, you’ll receive your medicine which is a self-administered injection. These can be given from the comfort of your own home. You won’t need to take time out of your busy schedule to visit a clinic to wait hours and then receive treatment. Once prescribed, you simply inject yourself with Wegove from your own home when you need to.
For one, you’ll need to pay to speak to a doctor and get testing done. Once your tests are completed, there are also monthly prescriptions that you must take after each visit to ensure you keep losing weight safely. Costs will vary depending on who you go to or the market you’re in, but with Concierge MD, the $999 covers the initial telemedicine visit, lab testing, and a six-month prescription.
Reducing treatment costs
If you focus on diet and exercise while taking Wegovy, you could lower your weight much quicker. The quicker you lose weight, the less you’ll need to spend on treatments. Exercise is a vital part of any weight loss program because it not only burns calories but also improves muscle tone and strength. Even if you can’t commit to an intense fitness regimen like running or lifting weights, simple things like walking more often and doing more chores around your house can help you shed pounds faster than being sedentary will.
To cut down on expenses, try avoiding processed foods at home by eating meals made from fresh ingredients instead. It’s not just what you eat that matters when it comes to weight loss; it’s also how much you eat. Many people make the mistake of thinking they can earn their calories back with exercise or extra workouts if they overindulge in food. This type of mentality will only set you up for failure and can prevent you from losing weight because even if you work out a lot, there are still limits to how many calories your body can burn off each day.
