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 Eden Prairie, 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 Eden Prairie, 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 Eden Prairie, 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 Eden Prairie, 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.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — Two adults and two children were taken to a local hospital after a massive multi-home fire early Friday morning in Eden Prairie.
Officials were called to the 10000 block of Lee Drive at around 12:30 a.m. on a report of a house fire. When crews arrived, they found flames in two homes.
"I can't tell you (with) 100% (certainty), but it's likely that one of the structures ignited from the first structure," said Eden Prairie Fire Chief Scott Gerber.
In a news release on Friday afternoon, the Eden Prairie Fire Department said the occupants of both homes escaped, and all four of the people hospitalized had non-life-threatening injuries. Three of the victims were treated and released, while one adult remained hospitalized as of Friday afternoon to be treated for burns.
Firefighters said two dogs and three cats are unaccounted for after the fire.
"Damage to both homes is significant, and the fire also affected nearby structures," the news release stated, adding that victims have moved to temporary housing.
Fire investigators continue to look into multiple reports of an explosion before the fire, as well as the cause.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Some neighbors in Eden Prairie are crying fowl after a pair of wild peacocks have taken up residency.
If the peacocks were people they're so popular, they'd easily become the HOA president. The problem -- they're loud and sometimes confrontational.
That doesn't bother Mike Berdahl.
"They're totally harmless. They're beautiful," Berdahl said.
Berdahl, along with many neighbors, consider two peacocks nicknamed Brownie and Peapod as part of the fabric of their neighborhood.
For at least one family though, who neighbors say moved in during the pandemic, it's been too much.
They weren't home to talk with WCCO, but neighbors say they've tried to get the birds to stay off their property by running sprinklers. They even removed their back deck.
This month, wildlife control picked up Peapod -- but Brownie got away.
"You always saw them in pairs. They were always together. And now there's only one and he seems to be making a lot more noise in the last couple of days," said Berdahl.
While no one knows why, there's been at least one peacock living in the neighborhood since the 90s.
Then in 2017, a neighbor felt he was lonely and bought a peacock from a game farm. Next, three peacock chicks were born.
Nancy Beaumont's family took them in.
"They just were a real blessing and just sweet birds and really fun to learn about," Beaumont said.
The Beaumants say they aren't angry that Peapod was taken, but they want the two birds to be reunited.

A pile of dirty snow in a parking lot topped with a Target shopping cart has received its own name and has been predicted to stick around until May.
The pile of snow in the Eden Prairie Center parking lot has been dubbed “Mount Eden Prairie”.
The area received a record amount of snow during the 2022-2023 winter season. As of 19 March, the Twin Cities had received 81.2 inches of snow – the eighth snowiest winter recorded, according to KARE 11.
The 2010-2011 winter is the only other season in the 21st century making it into the top ten, coming in fourth place with 86.6 inches of snow. The rest were recorded between 1916 and 1992.
In Duluth in northeast Minnesota, 121.3 inches of snow had fallen as of 17 March, the sixth snowiest on record.
Visitors to the Eden Prairie Center could be seen climbing the snow pile.
“This is peak Minnesotan content,” one Twitter user said.
“Should put a 24 7 camera on it and have a pool to guess when it falls,” another added.
One account holder posted footage appearing to show the moment the cart was placed on the pile.
“Minnesota culture is talking and laughing about this shopping cart,” another Twitter user said.
“Lmao wtf is this, I’m too California to comprehend this image,” one person responded.
“Every time it snows, parking lots the size of small cities need to be cleared and the result is mountains of snow like this that don’t fully melt until early-mid May. And someone put a shopping cart atop one and it’s all Minnesotans on reddit are talking about,” the account holder responded.

A family that escaped a house fire and explosion in Eden Prairie earlier this month is recounting the scary moments and thanking the community for an outpouring of support after they lost everything.
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (FOX 9) - Nathaniel Wilkins was working an overnight shift when he got the news that his house was engulfed in flames.
"My heart stopped, but I thought it was a joke for a second. I’m like what do you mean my house exploded?" Wilkins said. "It was catastrophic, I’ve never seen an image of a place burned down so bad."
Wilkins's fiancée Sade Strong was inside the Eden Prairie home on June 2nd. She woke up from her sleep that night after sensing that something was amiss. When she looked out of a window, her lawn was on fire.
"It looked like doomsday outside of my window," Strong told FOX 9 on Tuesday.
Yet only minutes later, everyone had made it out of the home alive. The couple’s 5-year-old daughter was thrown out of a window to safety, while Sade grabbed the couple’s 1-month old-baby.
Their 51-year-old grandmother was hurt the worst, left with third-degree burns down her back after discovering the fire.
"The dog was barking at the door, so she followed the dog to the door," Wilkins explained. "As soon as she opened the door, she gave the fire oxygen and it came in forcefully, knocking the door off its hinges, hitting her in the face, and knocking her unconscious."
All that’s left of the home now is a crater. Wilkins young family has lost everything, but they are thankful to be alive. The house exploded less than a minute later after everyone made it, "it was something out of a movie," Wilkins said.
Investigators say the explosion was caused by empty medical-grade oxygen tanks. But the cause of the fire is still up in the air.
In the meantime, community members have stepped up, donating more than $10,000 to an online fundraiser.
"For them we are thankful, we’re grateful," Wilkins finished.
