All Your Burning GLP-1 Questions Answered

You have questions, we have answers. It’s time for safer, more effective weight loss options.

The Big Question: Does Dose prescribe GLP-1s?

Yes! After assessing your health factors, history, and needs, our licensed providers can potentially prescribe Semaglutide or Tirzepatide.

Are GLP-1s safe?

With proper use, GLP-1s are a safe, revolutionary, and effective weight-loss treatment, backed by sound science and testing.

The GLP-1s Dose prescribes are rigorously regulated and go above and beyond when it comes to compliance. Dose’s primary pharmacy partners meet all state and federal standards in addition to conducting weekly potency testing and constant third-party ingredient analysis to ensure sterility and exceptional quality.

What do GLP-1s do to your body?

GLP-1s mimic and extend natural processes in the body. A small alteration to their chemical makeup allows these processes to last far longer and be far more effective.

These treatments accelerate your weight loss by…

  1. Delaying how quickly our stomachs digest food. This leads to a feeling of fullness and satisfaction with smaller meal sizes.
  2. Slowing intestinal motility so you will feel fuller longer after meals.
  3. Lowering blood sugars, in part by reducing the production of sugar in the liver.
  4. Stimulating insulin secretion by the pancreas.

Are there any potential side effects?

The most common side effects of GLP-1s are constipation and nausea. If present, these effects usually subside after initial treatment. Patients sometimes report acid reflux, stomach pain, vomiting, or diarrhea.

We care deeply about patient comfort and peace of mind, and the formulation Dose sources include B12 and Glycine, which can help alleviate these potential side effects.

The risk of serious side effects increases in patients with preexisting conditions such as hypoglycemia, kidney problems, or a risk of allergic reactions.

What do B12 and Glycine do in the body?

B12 is key for metabolism and cell function. It keeps your blood cells healthy and helps combat potential nausea when introduced to GLP-1s.

Glycine can help to reduce muscle loss without any increased or additional side effects. Studies show that pairing Glycine with a healthier diet is powerful for stimulating the loss of fat tissue while preserving muscle mass.

B12 and glycine are a powerful duo in enhancing your weight loss journey. And mitigating potential side effects with better ingredients is always a bonus!
