I’m not sure about an injectable medication. Why do Calibrate doctors prescribe these types of medications?
Calibrate doctors prescribe GLP-1s because research shows that they are the safest and most effective medication for sustainable weight loss, especially when combined with lifestyle changes like Calibrate supports. Many GLP-1s are taken via an injection. While an injection may sound scary, most members actually report injections being painless, quick, and easy. (It’s just under the skin—going into your fat instead of your muscle. The needle is ultra-fine, so it isn’t like a typical shot.) GLP-1s are self-administered either daily or weekly depending on the medication. Your Calibrate doctor can walk you through how this works and can also send you a short video to help. In addition, not only are injectables the medications we prescribe more effective, but they also have fewer and safer side effects than other weight loss medications.
Your Calibrate doctor will use your medical history and insurance coverage to prescribe the best GLP-1 for you and may prescribe you an oral GLP-1 option if injections are not a good fit. The Calibrate Medical Team is available to answer your questions about GLP-1s and to address other medical concerns you might have throughout your Calibrate year.
