Here is a health optimization success story from one of our very own members. Bridget a 53 yo female who presented to us last December struggling to lose weight despite healthy dietary changes, food tracking and increasing exercise without success. She was also having issues with pain in her feet and joints, making certain exercise difficult.

 She completed our 360 Predictive assessment blood panel identifying issues with inflammation, cholesterol, and insulin resistance. She was encouraged to meet with our dietician Alex Shepp, who recommended a low carb and high fiber diet among other dietary/meal planning tips. She also began taking supplements and GLP-1 agonist Semaglutide 0.5mg once weekly.

After 4 months she reported weight loss of 26lbs, but more than that she reported a significant improvement of pain in her feet and joints overall allowing her to increase her physical activity. She has since started training for a Triathlon in June and reports feeling and looking great! She has remained on a low dose of Semaglutide 0.5mg and will plan to decrease after her Triathlon and consider using as needed for inflammatory benefits. Some people just need a reset of their metabolism and GLP-1 agonist and certain supplements can aid in that reset.

At LX-Medical we enjoy helping our members optimize their health so they can be active without pain and feel good about their body.

GLP-1 agonist such as Semaglutide and Tirzepatide can aid in weight loss by lowering blood sugar, improving insulin resistance and slowing digestion but also have added anti-inflammatory and cardiovascular health benefits. There are also current studies looking at neuro-protective properties and decreasing risk of colon cancer. More research is warranted but appears promising.
