LX Medical's weight loss program has helped numerous patients achieve their weight loss goals, live a healthy life, and enjoy total well-being for years. At LX Medical, we believe that weight loss shouldn't be centered around a one-size-fits-all mentality. Our doctors and practitioners create custom weight loss programs that are tailored to your unique body, rather than creating plans based off of someone matching your age or weight. With our team's support, you can achieve real results and start living life without the extra pounds.
That's important in the modern world, where maintaining good health and fitness has become more important than ever. Research has shown that viruses and diseases are more likely to affect people who are overweight and unhealthy. Unfortunately, there are many "miracle" supplements and unhealthy diet plans that mislead people into thinking that weight loss is not beneficial. Furthermore, weight loss "experts" often offer unstructured and unsupervised programs that do more harm than good.
At LX Medical, we prioritize the well-being of our patients when it comes to weight loss. Our approach is patient-centric, focusing on personalized treatments. Our doctors first evaluate your lifestyle habits, and we work with you to replace negative patterns with positive, personalized lifestyle changes. This is crucial for achieving optimal wellness and weight loss. Benefits of losing weight include:
However, losing weight is only the beginning. To keep weight off permanently, adopting a healthy, active lifestyle is essential. At LX Medical, we help you achieve this by implementing manageable, positive lifestyle changes that jumpstart your weight loss journey. By making healthy behaviors a part of your daily routine, you can achieve your weight loss goals and become the best version of yourself.
One of the most successful treatments we offer to help patients shed pounds safely is peptide therapy for weight loss in Bloomington, MN. In fact, peptides for weight loss, such as semaglutide (also known as Ozempic and Wegovy, MOTS-C,) and AOD-9604, have been proven to be effective and have helped countless men and women live life at a healthy weight.
Consisting of amino acids, peptides help regulate the biological processes and functions in your body. As the building blocks of protein, they are crucial for your overall health. Unfortunately, however, many men and women suffer from peptide deficiency. Peptide therapy gives your body the peptides it needs, improving your ability to:
Peptide therapy is often used alongside other treatment plans from LX Medical, such as our custom weight loss plans. That's where peptides like semaglutide and AOD-9604 come into play.
Peptide therapy is often used to boost hormones and support our total well-being. Different types of peptides can target different areas of our health. For example, some collagen peptide supplements can help make our skin, hair, and gut healthier. Other peptides, like semaglutide and AOD-9604, can help facilitate healthy weight loss.
Peptide therapy works in a different way than vitamin supplements. When we take a multivitamin for our hair, skin, and nails, our body must absorb the nutrients. But sometimes, our body can't absorb all the nutrients, so they just leave our body through our urine. Peptides, on the other hand, are part of the proteins in our bodies, making them easier to benefit from and absorb.
But what about peptide therapy for weight loss? The truth is there are various peptides that have different effects, including some that facilitate weight loss. However, weight loss is a nuanced process that involves multiple factors such as diet, exercise, age, genetics, and lifestyle. While peptides can assist you in achieving your weight loss goals, they are most effective when combined with improvements like a healthier diet, more frequent exercise, and better life choices. If you've tried various weight loss plans and diets, but haven't had any success, peptides like semaglutide and ADO-9604 may be the extra boost you need to experience true weight loss.
A recent study in the Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism found that people who used peptides in conjunction with a weight loss plan experienced incredible results. More specifically, patients reported a 14% reduction in body fat on average. Two of the most popular peptides for weight loss also happen to be FDA-approved and, when appropriate, part of your weight loss journey with LX Medical.
Those peptides are semaglutide and AOD-9604 and are touted for their therapeutic benefits and long-term safety profile. If you're looking for a little extra help to lose weight and keep it off for good, peptide therapy for weight loss could be for you.
Looking to shed some pounds and keep them off for good? Diet and exercise are crucial, but for busy adults and parents, sticking to a routine is easier said than done. If you need extra help losing weight, consider semaglutide. This injection, approved by the FDA for diabetes and obesity, can stimulate GLP-1 receptors in the brain to aid in quicker weight loss and long-term health.
Semaglutide works in several ways. First, it acts as glucagon in your body, which helps tell your brain that you're full and don't need to eat anymore. Secondly, it slows down the time it takes for food to transit out of your stomach. This process reduces unnecessary eating and snacking throughout the day. Perhaps more importantly, it reduces glucose spikes after you eat, which causes a litany of issues like inflammation.
Semaglutide also helps your pancreas secrete insulin while making you insulin sensitive. This regulates glucose levels in your body and how your body metabolizes that glucose. Additionally, by reducing inflammation in your body, you benefit from powerful anti-aging and longevity properties.
When combined with a healthy diet and regular exercise, semaglutide can provide:
Unlike other weight loss clinics, at LX Medical, you can enjoy the benefits of semaglutide from the comfort of your office or home. Injections are administered once a week. Once you've met your weight loss goals, you can reduce your intake to a minimum dose for additional positive effects like ongoing weight management. You can also quit taking semaglutide entirely. If you opt to stop, our medical weight loss team can chat with you about other types of peptide therapy for weight loss in Bloomington, MN.
This peptide, which is often used in conjunction with semaglutide regimens, stimulates the breakdown of fat while inhibiting lipogenesis and supporting your tendons and cartilage. It has grown in popularity because of its ability to boost your metabolism, which helps burn fat. What's great about AOD-9604 is that it stimulates the pituitary gland but does not affect tissue growth or blood sugar. Perhaps most impressive is that this peptide can burn fat without you feeling the need to overeat as a result.
In fact, AOD-9604 activates your body's fat-burning processes using its own unique mechanism without needing an HGH receptor. It also releases obese fat cells and reduces new fat cell accumulation. One of the most notable benefits of AOD-9604 is its ability to regulate blood sugar and manage insulin levels, which can lead to reduced inflammation and weight loss. Additionally, AOD-9604 can aid in building muscle, similar to growth hormones. Its benefits extend beyond fat loss, as it contains regenerative properties that may be beneficial for individuals with various conditions, such as:
With the ability to reduce fat that is stored in your abdominal region, this weight-loss peptide is very popular for older people with stubborn belly fat. It is also often used by people who have tried other diets and weight loss plans but had little or no success.
At LX Medical, our doctors offer a range of peptide therapies for your health and well-being. Peptides like semaglutide and AOD-9604 are often used as part of a comprehensive peptide therapy plan, crafted by LX Medical specialists for your body. If you're interested in losing weight, gut health peptides like BPC-157, Thymulosin Alpha, Thymulosin Beta, and GHK-Cu can be incredibly beneficial along your weight loss journey.
This naturally occurring peptide, sometimes called the "Body Protection Compound," is secreted in your gut and helps repair its lining. It works by helping your body be in a constant state of restoration and repair, providing powerful anti-inflammatory effects. This process helps with issues like:
When it comes to losing weight, BPC-157 is often included in peptide therapy for weight loss in Bloomington, MN, because it can help reduce pain and inflammation resulting from new or increased exercise efforts. As noted previously, exercise and diet are key in long-term weight loss, and BPC-157 can make those efforts easier.
This peptide is injected once a day, with courses ranging from 30 to 60 days. After you finish the injection course, consider BPC-157 oral supplements to maintain its benefits.
Thymosin Alpha-1 is a powerful immune system modulator that helps you resist infections, illnesses, and disease. By naturally stimulating T cells to locate and eliminate viruses, bacteria, and even tumor cells, this peptide prompts your body to respond to these invasive organisms, making your immune system naturally stronger and more effective.
Numerous clinical studies have demonstrated the effectiveness of Thymosin Alpha-1 in regulating immunity and inflammation related to rheumatoid arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, systemic lupus erythematosus, and other conditions. Recent clinical studies have also shown promising results in using this peptide to fight lung, colon, breast, and other types of cancer. By reducing inflammation in your body and enhancing your immune system, you can optimize your body as you lose weight with the help of LX Medical.
Patients inject this peptide every day for two weeks and then continue three times a week for 2.5 months.
Thymosin Beta-4 is a peptide consisting of 43 amino acids that is known to promote healing in the body and has anti-inflammatory properties. It occurs naturally in higher concentrations at injury sites and is a water-soluble protein that can regulate cell migration to a site. It is also very good at repairing tissue damage. The substance is not only beneficial for wound healing and skin repair but can also aid in the repair of the brain, spinal cord, and heart. Medical professionals consider Thymosin Beta-4 to be a safe and potent substance in both its natural and synthetic forms.
Like its Alpha counterpart, this peptide can be beneficial for individuals undergoing weight loss, and can help reduce the inflammation and pain associated with exercising and more.
Patients inject this peptide every day for two weeks and then continue three times a week for 2.5 months.
Research suggests that GHK-CU functions as a feedback signal when tissue damage occurs. This peptide is effective in shielding damaged tissue, reducing inflammation, and replacing scarred tissue with healthy tissue. Although further research is necessary to determine its effectiveness on a larger scale, GHK-CU has already been proven to play a role in wound healing and inflammation reduction. Like other peptides for weight loss in Bloomington, MN, GHK-Cu supports your gut health and weight loss efforts by lowering inflammation in your body, which often happens from changes to your diet or exercise regimens.
Patients should take this peptide for 20-30 days, especially when used for wound healing or as part of a more robust peptide therapy package.
At LX Medical, we're proud to make better care possible.
We are a physician-led team of doctors, nurses, and health experts, advised by a panel of top healthcare leaders who are revolutionizing the power of house calls.

With backing from the Bloomington City Council, Polar Semiconductor is one step closer to getting a piece of the $280 billion CHIPS and Science Act as the city works to boost manufacturing and diversify its economy.
Bloomington's city council and Port Authority have been pursuing projects to make the South Loop district — the area just east of the Mall of America — into a hub of high-tech manufacturing, with the city and Port Authority extending subsidies for German sensor manufacturer SICK earlier this month. Even as the city has supported mall developments, including offering more than $95 million in tax-increment financing to subsidize a possible water park at the mall, the city's economic development effort now shares focus with companies such as Polar, SICK and chipmaker SkyWater Technology.
"It's smart to build on your base. That's what Bloomington is doing," said Peter Frosch, CEO of economic development group Greater MSP, of the city's tech manufacturing sector. Greater MSP is leading a coalition to bring more semiconductor manufacturing, and federal funding, to Minnesota.
Minnesota isn't starting from scratch, said Kevin McKinnon, deputy commissioner for economic development and research with the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development.
"A lot of people in Minnesota may not even realize there's a semiconductor industry here," McKinnon said — but there is. And there's an ecosystem of suppliers and educational institutions to support those chipmakers and train workers, he said, which could help Minnesota companies be more competitive for CHIPS funding — though that federal funding is far from guaranteed.
Bloomington has had a concentration of chipmakers for more than 50 years, Frosch said. Normandale Community College has the country's only two-year program to train the technicians who work on semiconductor manufacturing, and the community college hosted Commerce Secretary Gina Raimondo this summer to talk about about the CHIPS funding and semiconductors. The University of Minnesota this summer launched a program — funded by Polar and other chipmakers — to create training materials for people who will work in the plants.
Some 3,000 people already work in Bloomington's semiconductor and microelectronics plants. In comparison, about 11,000 people work at the Mall of America, according to the city. That's down 15% from a decade ago, but the mall is still by far the largest employer in Bloomington and the largest property tax payer.
The council's vote of support for Polar does not come with any city funding, but the company needed Bloomington's backing to apply for a piece of a $250 million state pot created in the 2023 budget, earmarked for chipmakers pursuing federal CHIPS grants. The federal grant application requires matching funds.
Piecing together state, federal and private funding, Polar hopes to fund a technology upgrade that will cost at least $420 million and double the output at the Bloomington plant.
Sectorwide, Frosch said, Greater MSP hopes to see somewhere between 7,000 and 10,000 new manufacturing jobs in the state's semiconductor and electronics manufacturing industries.
"Our collective goal is to double the size of Minnesota's semiconductor and microelectronics industry," he said.

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. — Bloomington lost out on its bid to host the 2027 World's Fair Expo to Belgrade, Serbia.
The Bureau International des Expositions announced the news in a tweet just before 6:30 a.m. Wednesday. The Minnesota city placed third behind Belgrade, Serbia and Málaga, Spain.
Serbia's theme for the Expo is "Play for Humanity - Sport and Music for All." Their submission explains that this theme would explore play as a tool to build resilience in a difficult world.
Cities in Argentina and Thailand were the other finalists to host the Expo.
Bloomington's plan had been to host it near the Mall of America in the South Loop District. If Minnesota would have prevailed, officials expected the event to generate 17,000 jobs, $364 million in local state and federal tax revenue, and an economic impact of about $2 billion.
Bloomington's proposed theme was "Healthy People, Healthy Planet." Minnesota USA Expo 2027 CEO John Stanoch said that a delegation of civic and elected leaders spent months courting - and counting - potential votes, and they went into the day optimistic that the bid had a strong chance of winning.
"We were disappointed and somewhat surprised," he said. "We expected that we would move into the final two, with Spain, but that was not the case and that's a great disappointment."
Because the votes were anonymous, leaders aren't sure which of the 150+ countries changed their votes, despite written and/or verbal commitments.
"We were optimistic going into it," said Bloomington mayor Tim Busse. "But it's a secret ballot and no matter what folks tell you, you can't be sure one way or another how they're going to vote."
Busse says his disappointment doesn't just stem from the fact that the plans in the bid will never materialize, it's also that the city spent more than four years waiting to develop a prime area around the Mall of America.
Kent Erdahl: "So where does that leave us? Where does that leave this?"
Mayor Busse: "The best thing about what we did with the Expo was we exposed Bloomington, Minnesota to an international development community. All of this is basically a blank canvas for us. We've got the light rail, we've got the airport, the freeways, there are folks who have come forward and we were holding off, because of the Expo, and those conversations have already started."
One of those conversations revolves around a massive $250 million indoor waterpark proposed by the owners of the Mall of America back in 2019. At the time, the Bloomington City Council committed 7.5 million dollars to help move it forward, before the Expo bid came into play.
Busse: "They are still looking at that possibility to develop it in that way. We've also heard from many other folks with different ideas, a variety of different things in the hospitality industry and beyond, that are all possibilities here in the South Loop."
Erdahl: "Any chance the city is going to redouble its efforts and put another bid forward down the line?"
Busse: "Not that I've heard. I don't know that we would want to wait another four or five or ten years trying to get another Expo, trying to figure out the next steps there."
Erdahl: "Time to break some ground?"
Busse: "We're past time to break ground. There's got to be a better and higher use than a surface parking lot here."
Minneapolis Regional Chamber President & CEO Jonathan Weinhagen acknowledged the disappointment that comes with not winning the bid, but says the effort will have big-picture benefits just the same.
“We were proud to carry the official bid on behalf of the United States and we greatly appreciate the support from the White House, the U.S. Department of State, the Governor’s Office and the Expo’s many corporate and business supporters," said Weinhagen. "Our work together showed that Minnesota is worthy of the global spotlight. We made global connections that will continue to highlight our state as a desirable destination for tourism, business, and investment.”
In 2017, Minnesota also submitted a World's Fair bid on behalf of the country and lost out to Buenos Aires, Argentina.
The last time the United States hosted the World's Fair was in 1984 in New Orleans.

The riddle isn't why the turtle crossed the road, but how to keep it safe from cars.
In Bloomington, where turtles trundle across Bush Lake Road in the spring and fall, moving between Hyland Lake and Bush Lake and the surrounding wetlands, that might mean installing a fence while the city and Hennepin County figure out if a special turtle tunnel might be feasible the next time the street is rebuilt.
The city is going after a $300,000 federal grant to build a foot-tall mesh fence that would stretch more than a mile on the edge of the Hyland Lake Park Reserve. It would replace a barrier made of landscaping fabric that seems to have kept turtles off the road. But the barrier is sagging and frayed after years of use, said Jack Distel, Bloomington's water resources specialist.
"We want to find some funding for a long-term solution," Distel said.
To build a permanent fence, Bloomington is pursuing federal funding for wildlife crossings, made available as part of the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act passed in 2021.
A four-year study by the Minnesota Zoo and the Minnesota Department of Transportation found fences significantly cut down on the number of turtle deaths — though some pushed back, including Scandia officials who said the fences are ugly.
Christopher Smith, wildlife ecologist with MnDOT, said the department is working on a standard turtle-protection fence that could be built anywhere state roads run through turtle habitats.
The area around the Hyland Lake Park Preserve is already a hot spot for turtle deaths because there are so many ponds and wetlands, Distel said, but roads have made it more dangerous for turtles to travel.
A fence along Bush Lake Road would keep turtles off the road, but it would also make it a lot harder for them to move around.
"It's a pro and con," Distel said. Fences can save turtles from being crushed by cars, but they do need to move around to eat and nest.
Eventually, Bloomington wants to see turtle crossings under some key streets like Bush Lake Road. Fences would not be made totally redundant, Distel said, but could help corral animals toward the culverts.
But Distel and Bloomington City Engineer Julie Long said tunnels will have to wait until the next time Bush Lake Road is rebuilt, and adding a culvert for animals to cross under the road will require buy-in from Hennepin County.
Turtles are worth all this trouble, Distel said, because they're an important part of watery ecosystems, eating dead and decaying plants and animals that could spread disease.
When turtles cross roads, they also present a danger to drivers, and to anyone who gets out of their car to help a turtle.
"Being Minnesotans, we're all pretty familiar with deer-vehicle collisions," Smith said. "But small critters, we don't typically think of them as being dangerous in that way."
Problems arise when drivers slam on the brakes or swerve for turtles in a way other drivers do not anticipate, he said.
Two types of turtles — Blanding's turtles and wood turtles — are considered threatened in Minnesota, and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Agency is weighing whether to list both species as threatened.
Smith said preventing wood turtles and Blanding's turtles from dying on the road could prevent onerous federal regulations on road construction that could kick in if the turtles are listed as threatened or endangered.
And, Distel said, Bloomington just seems to like its turtles.
"Having this urban wildlife is a huge value for the city," he said. "We're happy to have them."

BLOOMINGTON, Minn. -- Bloomington has lost its bid to host the 2027 World Expo.
The city had been pitched under the theme "Healthy People, Healthy Planet," and was estimated to bring in $729 million in economic impact for the state.
However it ultimately lost to the Serbian city of Belgrade. Malaga, Spain came in second place.
"While we're disappointed that we will not have the opportunity to host the world this time, we congratulate Serbia on their successful bid for Expo 2027. We know that they will create a memorable Expo experience," Bob Clark, Minnesota USA World Expo bid committee co-chair, said. "While Minnesota may not have been chosen as the host, we are incredibly proud of the effort, passion, and commitment that went into our bid."
Minnesota also previously lost a bid to host the 2023 Expo.
Three other countries competed to host: Argentina, Spain and Thailand. Representatives from the Bureau of International Expositions cast their ballots in Paris on Wednesday morning.
It's been almost 40 years since the United States hosted an Expo. The next Expo will take place in 2025 in Osaka, Japan.

The competition among countries to host the 2027 World EXPO has begun, and Bloomington, Minnesota has officially thrown its hat into the ring with the theme, “Healthy People, Healthy Planet – Wellness and Well Being for All.”
The Bureau of International Expositions (BIE) announced recently that Minnesota USA Expo 2027’s bid to host a Specialized Expo is advancing to the next step in the process. This is the first time the BIE Executive Committee has deemed a bid on behalf of the United States viable since 1980.
Imagine hosting 92 Super Bowls on consecutive days. Or imagine hosting an event that will create 33,000 jobs while generating $733 million in new spending for the U.S. You’ve just imagined Bloomington, Minnesota hosting the 2027 World EXPO.
Now, imagine being the design team that helps lead the strategic planning process through site design, visionary attractions, security/safety, crowd flow, theme integration, infrastructure development and post-expo transition. Additionally, the design team contributes to promotions, brand development, logo design, public presentations and international exposure.

DLR Group, the design team behind the Bloomington bid, is the project manager guiding many of the facets of the bidding process. Specifically, the DLR Group design team serves as a trusted advisor to the U.S. Department of State and the 2027 Expo Bid Committee by: preparing the Expo Application to the U.S. Department of Commerce; serving as Board Chair of the Bid Committee; creating the Health Well-being Advisory Board for theme development; being a participant in Diplomatic Missions hosted by Governor Tim Walz in promotion of the Expo; presenting site design and dossier details to the International Enquiry Mission of the Bureau of International Expositions.
David Loehr, Principal and Mixed-Use Leader at DLR Group, explains, “In 2012, community leaders, including St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman and Jazz Fest organizers, invited me to brainstorm what the community’s next big event could be. How could we showcase our community at a global scale? Throughout my own career, I have participated, authored and advanced a wide variety of community initiatives such as Mississippi Riverfront redevelopment in St. Paul, historic interpretive master planning in Minneapolis, transit corridor task teams, affordable housing committees, district-wide master planning and community town halls on urban development. Brainstorming with city leaders on topics of future community impact was second nature for me.”
Following a potentially successful vote in favor of Minnesota Expo 2027, DLR Group will evolve from a visionary master planner to the overall Expo design coordinator and master architect. Coordination with city planning and infrastructure will be one aspect of the design team’s coordination. Construction timing and budget coordination will be additional responsibilities. They will create guidelines for the design and construction of more than 130 country exhibits/pavilions as well as oversee each installation. As master architect, DLR Group will coordinate the design and installation of service buildings, security offices, logistics facilities, communications hubs, data centers and other support uses. The design team will also prepare design documents for the host pavilion, theme pavilions and the international conference center.
Physical health, well-being and cognitive function are all improved with nature connectedness. The Expo fosters this human connection through the planning of the site. The Expo provides a connection from the existing nature found along the Minnesota River and Fort Snelling State Park to the existing Mall of America. Visitors are provided with the ability to find respite and connection to nature, not only along the existing nature trail system but along the Expo paths as a journey through the development. Paths are activated with different experiences and moments as they intertwine with pavilions, stages, entertainment spaces, conference spaces and then integrate with the Mall of America and its various facilities such as a waterpark, various hotels, arena and exhibition center.
For Minnesota Expo 2027, DLR Group has established a plan that is an impetus for lasting urban transformation, and has already been shaping the South Loop district through the deign of the Mall of America and all its related infrastructure over the past 30 years. Combining the Post-Expo uses with the Mall of America adds tremendous resources and infrastructure while setting a course for future development.
If Minnesota is selected during a vote of the BIE in June of 2023, this would be the first expo in the U.S. in nearly 40 years. The last World’s Fair held in the United States was hosted by New Orleans in 1984. Other countries that are in the running to host EXPO 2027 include Argentina, Serbia, Spain and Thailand.
