Based on several clinical studies, GLP-1 medications can help you to lose 5–20% of your body weight in a year.
In clinical trials of Wegovy in non-diabetic people, the average weight loss was 15% over one year. In another Wegovy trial involving people with diabetes, the average weight loss was 9.6%. These findings suggest that people with diabetes may experience slightly less weight loss on these medications compared to those without. Non-diabetic patients who used Saxenda for 56 weeks, on average, lost 9% of their body weight.
The Ozempic trials exclusively included people with diabetes, and they achieved an average weight loss of 7% over one year.
It's important to remember that the participants in these studies combined medication with diet and exercise.
Our program offers GLP-1 injectable treatments and alternative oral medications, both of which are proven to be effective for weight loss.
GLP-1s are natural gut hormones that signal your brain to reduce appetite, enhance metabolism and improve digestion, which causes prolonged fullness and better nutrient absorption. The GLP-1 medications we offer are: semaglutide (Ozempic®), liraglutide (Wegovy®) and tirzepatide (Mounjaro™).
We also provide alternative weight loss medications in pill form. Our medication combines two drugs, bupropion and naltrexone, which work together to aid weight loss.
All our medications are clinically validated and can support your weight loss journey. Your healthcare provider will determine the most suitable option for you.
If you don’t feel you’re getting the results you want from your weight loss medication, there are steps you can take.
First, it's important to give the medication some time to work. Our experts recommend using your weight loss medication for at least 6 months to judge its effectiveness. Remember that individual responses can vary, and your body may need some time to adapt. We also start your treatment at a low dose and increase it gradually, so it’s normal to not see a lot of weight loss in the first month or two.
We’re here to support you throughout your weight loss journey. If you have concerns about the effectiveness of your medication, or any side effects you’re experiencing, your Levity medical team is ready to support you. They can provide guidance, answer your questions and explore possible adjustments to your treatment plan.
Remember, you also have the flexibility to cancel your treatment at any time. We understand that weight loss is a unique and evolving process, and your health and satisfaction are our top priorities. If, after consultation and a reasonable trial period, you and your medical team decide that the medication is not the right fit for you, you have the freedom to explore alternative options.
Our medications belong to a class of drugs known as GLP-1s, which are clinically tested, stimulant-free, and non-habit forming. Their most common side effects are gastrointestinal discomfort (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea), potential episodes of hypoglycemia (low blood sugar), reactions at the injection site, reduced appetite. These typically resolve over the first few weeks of treatment.
In the most recent clinical trials, less than 5% of people discontinued GLP-1 medications because of side effects. If you do experience any side effects, you can reach out to our clinical team directly for support.
If you miss a dose, it should be taken as soon as possible.
If you miss a dose for more than five days, please contact us at email@example.com for further advice.

Yes, most of our prescriptions require blood work. We need to see blood test results to complete a full weight loss evaluation, as there could be underlying conditions that affect your weight, or could prevent us from prescribing certain medications.
Providing blood work results means our team can be well informed when reviewing your treatment, so you can be confident you're receiving the right treatment plan for you.
To ensure we can safely prescribe your treatment, our clinicians require a Comprehensive Metabolic Panel (CMP) blood test. Here are ways to get this test:
After getting your lab results, follow these steps to upload them to your patient portal:
Please note, lab costs aren’t covered in your membership fee.

GLP-1s (glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists) work by mimicking the action of the naturally occurring hormone GLP-1 in your body. They have several effects on your body, including:
