The Dangers of Short-Term Semaglutide Use: Why It's Not Recommended

In an age where quick-fix solutions are popular, it's important to understand why short-term use of semaglutide, such as for a month before a beach vacation, is not advised. Dr. Amy Tomlinson explains the potential consequences of this approach and encourages a healthier, more sustainable method for weight management.

Negative Effects on Metabolism

Using semaglutide for a short period and then stopping can lead to yo-yo weight fluctuations, negatively impacting your metabolism. These rapid changes can cause your body's set point to adjust, leading to a need for fewer calories to maintain a higher weight. This metabolic disturbance can have long-term consequences and make it more difficult to manage weight without the aid of semaglutide.
