To control your blood sugar, achieve a healthy weight, reduce the risk of heart problems, and ease the symptoms of polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), see OB/GYN physician Shamsah Amersi, MD, in Santa Monica, California. She offers Ozempic® (semaglutide) injections to achieve your health goals. Call the office today to learn more about this highly effective treatment.

Women with PCOS, perimenopause, menopause, thyroid imbalances have a hormonal imbalance which leads to metabolic issues affecting their overall health and appearance. These women experience unexplainable weight gain with very little success in losing weight with traditional methods such as diet and exercise.

Dr Amersi can provide an effective and life-changing treatment for women struggling with weight loss. We can help you get back to a place where you feel confident again

What is medically supervised weight loss?

Medically supervised weight loss with Dr. Amersi includes healthy eating, regular exercise, and Ozempic® to manage diabetes, polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), and other chronic conditions. While not a weight-loss medicine, many people taking Ozempic® have lost significant weight.

Reaching an ideal weight with Ozempic offers several health benefits, including:

  • Stable blood sugar
  • Reduced insulin resistance
  • Improved chronic disease management
  • Reduced risk of heart attack and stroke
  • Diminished PCOS symptoms
  • Decreased appetite
  • Enhanced fat burning
  • More energy
  • Self-confidence
  • Reduced risk of medical problems

Entrepreneur Elon Musk, comedian and talk show host Chelsea Handler, and TikTok creator and model Remi Bader are among the many celebrities who have used semaglutide prescription injections to lose weight.

How does weight loss with Ozempic work?

Ozempic works by prompting the pancreas to make more insulin during periods of high blood sugar. It also prevents your liver from releasing too much sugar and slows down food movement from your stomach, so you feel full longer.

Is weight loss with Ozempic right for me?

Dr. Amersi personalizes each treatment plan based on your unique needs. To determine if Ozempic is right for you, she discusses your medical history, checks your vital signs, weighs you, and evaluates your body mass index (BMI).

She reviews your usual diet and exercise habits. Dr. Amersi completes a physical exam and orders bloodwork and additional diagnostic tests to determine if you have diabetes, prediabetes, PCOS, nutritional deficiencies, hormone imbalances, or other medical conditions.

What should I expect during medically supervised weight loss?

Dr. Amersi personalizes a treatment plan based on your lifestyle, diagnosis, healthy history, and goals. Dr. Amersi might prescribe Ozempic injections you give yourself at home; she shows you how to inject them for the best results.

Ozempic is a penlike device that injects the Ozempic just beneath the skin on your thigh, upper arm, or abdomen. Don’t inject the medicine into a vein or muscle, and change the injection site each time you use Ozempic.

Check your blood sugar routinely, especially if you have diabetes or prediabetes. Follow up with Dr. Amersi regularly to ensure success and get answers to your questions.
