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 Wayzata, 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 Wayzata, 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 Wayzata, 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 Wayzata, 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.

Angelina Amerigo of St. Bartholomew in Wayzata thinks so. She points to a Scripture verse she read in 2021 while competing for the title of Miss Minnesota, a verse from the Old Testament Book of Isaiah that she embraced as a promise from the Lord for her success.“I wrote it down on a sticky note. It said, ‘When the time is right, I, the Lord will make it happen’ — Isaiah 60:22,” said Amerigo, 22, who attended St. Bartholomew School, in addition to being a member of the parish with her parents, Melinda and...
Angelina Amerigo of St. Bartholomew in Wayzata thinks so. She points to a Scripture verse she read in 2021 while competing for the title of Miss Minnesota, a verse from the Old Testament Book of Isaiah that she embraced as a promise from the Lord for her success.
“I wrote it down on a sticky note. It said, ‘When the time is right, I, the Lord will make it happen’ — Isaiah 60:22,” said Amerigo, 22, who attended St. Bartholomew School, in addition to being a member of the parish with her parents, Melinda and Victor, and older sister, Isabella. “I looked at that verse every single day leading up to Miss Minnesota 2022.”
After preparing for months, which included going to eucharistic adoration weekly, she finished as first runner-up. She tried again this year, and on June 23 at Treasure Island Resort and Casino in Welch she won the crown and an opportunity to spend a year traveling the state to make public appearances and serve as an ambassador for the Miss America organization. She will compete in the Miss America pageant in January 2024.
As she participates in parades and other civic events in the coming months, she plans to infuse her faith into conversations and interactions with the many Minnesotans she will meet. In a culture that can sometimes be hostile to God and the Catholic faith, she has no fear or hesitation to bring the Gospel wherever she goes. Visible expressions of her Catholic beliefs are the cross ring and Miraculous Medal she wears along with her Miss Minnesota sash and crown.
“My faith has definitely been a firm foundation of everything and anything I’ve done,” she said. “People who were watching my journey who I’ve never even met before have messaged me and just said really sweet words about how inspiring it was that I brought my faith along on my journey.”

Just days after she captured the crown, she got a chance to put that faith into action when she visited patients at Gillette Children’s Hospital in St. Paul.
“It was Gillette’s annual carnival for the firefighters of the Local 21st,” she said. “We had the opportunity to visit some rooms, so I prayed over some kids.”
Before doing so, she asked families for permission, and met a father who was “really surprised that someone in a crown and a sash” would bring faith to this encounter.
“I go back to this value of the crown and the sash not defining me, but I define the role,” she said. “Miss Minnesota is going to look different for every single person that steps into this role, and they’re going to bring their own personal values and convictions. And I think with the opportunity comes the availability to just pour who I am into the organization while I have the title.”
Amerigo’s quest to become Miss Minnesota began in 2019 right after she graduated from high school. She had been doing competitive dance since she was 5 years old and was looking for a new way to use those skills. She had heard about the Miss America organization when she was a junior but didn’t follow up until after graduation. That summer, she found out about a local competition in northern Minnesota and decided to enter.
While in Florida with her family at a national dance competition, she filled out the necessary paperwork in a hotel lobby just days before the pageant. During that trip, she took a walk on a beach and noticed “a bunch of trash.” That led to research and the eventual selection of her service initiative, which is one component of pageant competition, along with other things like talent, which is where she applied her background in dance.
As she travels throughout Minnesota, she will try to raise awareness of the issue she spoke about during the Miss Minnesota competition — reduction of one-time-use plastics. Her theme is “One bottle, one straw, one bag at a time.”
“(In) the Miss America organization, one of our core values is service,” said Amerigo, who will be a senior this fall at Minnesota State University Moorhead majoring in digital media relations. “So, my service initiative is all about the reduction of one-time-use plastics and promoting the sustainable nature of our oceans, lakes and rivers, and, furthermore, creating sustainable roadmaps for … companies and businesses.”
She may try to pursue a career in this field after she graduates and is considering a master’s program in supply chain management to help achieve that goal.
One of the unexpected blessings of pageant participation for Miss Minnesota Angelina Amerigo has been the friendships she has formed with other competitors as well as previous winners of the Miss Minnesota title. Among them is Kathryn Kueppers, a fellow Minnesota Catholic who won the title in 2019 and has attended some of the pageants Amerigo has competed in, including the finals of this year’s Miss Minnesota event, which took place over four days. Amerigo was blessed and joyful about the outpouring of support.
“I got so many text messages of Scripture verses and (people) praying for me,” said Amerigo, who teaches at DelMonico Dance in Lakeland, along with her sister. “I think (Kueppers) even mentioned she was praying a Hail Mary when I won. And my best friend was actually praying a rosary all the way in New York. … There was definitely a lot of faith support.”
As she looks ahead to the Miss America pageant in January and the rest of her time as Miss Minnesota, her focus will be on “having an open mind and open heart to how I’ll be used and what that will lead to.”
“I was walking around the house the other day and thinking about goals for Miss America,” she said. “And, I just said, ‘You know, Lord, whatever you want to do and however you want to use me, let’s do it.’”

FARGO — After watching his son help lead Wayzata High School to a state championship this past weekend, Fargo South graduate Steve McAndrew started to reminisce about his state title experience in the late 1980s.
More than 30 years later, some commonality remained.
“The impact that it has on the whole community, especially for the youth," McAndrew said. "It was amazing how many people it brought out from the community in Plymouth, Wayzata, and so many young kids. That brought me back to how big it was in Fargo, and even a big community and a big high school like Wayzata. It’s tough to make that school small.”
Jackson McAndrew played a big role in Wayzata's championship. The 6-foot-9 junior scored 25 points and grabbed nine rebounds to help lift the Trojans to a 75-71 overtime victory against Park Center on Saturday for the Minnesota Class 4A boys state basketball championship at Target Center.
“It’s cool," Jackson said. "It’s something that we both can share now and both can talk about. We hadn’t really talked about it too much until after the game.”
Steve was part an historic South team that went 25-0 during the 1988-89 season, which ended with a 68-49 victory against West Fargo in the North Dakota Class A state championship game at the Minot State Dome. Steve scored nine points in the title game in March of 1989.
“I had a couple friends in town who were also state champions in North Dakota watching that (Class 4A title) game and they mentioned to me, 'Now your boy has joined the club,' " Steve said. "I got to thinking that was pretty cool.”
Steve's father, Jim McAndrew, was among the family and friends that watched Jackson add another state championship to the family mantle. Steve was also on multiple successful teams at the University of North Dakota after his career with the Bruins, including two teams that advanced to the NCAA Division II Elite Eight in his first two seasons in the men's basketball program.
Steve said former UND teammates Ben Jacobson, Scott Guldseth and Ben Brickson were among those who were in attendance at various points of the Class 4A tournament. Jacobson is now the head coach at Northern Iowa, which has offered Jackson. Jackson has also received Division I offers from Iowa, Wisconsin, Xavier, Creighton, Nebraska and St. Thomas. Steve said Jackson has received interest from numerous other D-I schools, including UND and North Dakota State.

Jackson scored eight points during the overtime, including a highlight layup in which he dribbled up nearly the entire length of the court and crossed over his defender and changed direction multiple times before kissing the ball in off the glass. He also sank a key 3-pointer.
“During that tournament, we almost saw another level from Jackson," Steve said.
Jackson said in the moment, those plays didn't feel like he was doing anything spectacular.
“It just felt like I was in a zone," said Jackson, who was named to the all-tournament team. “It was more just plays to help us win.”
After the postgame celebration and awards was one of Jackson's favorite moments when he went over his parents — Steve and mother Jennifer McAndrew — in the stands. His younger brother Jordan, an eighth-grader, was also among those in his family cheering section.
“I got the chance to go over and hug my mom and my dad and that was cool to be able to do," Jackson said.
Jackson is set to play for a Howard Pulley team in the upcoming travel basketball season with his first tournament slated for April.
“It’s good momentum going into the summer, too," Jackson said.
Former Wisconsin men's basketball star Sam Dekker — who now plays professionally overseas — gave Jackson a shoutout on social media over the weekend.
"Dudes like (Jackson McAndrew) are what the Kohl Center needs to get rockin’ again," Dekker wrote on his Twitter account.
"It’s really cool to see something like that," Jackson said.
Jackson has taken unofficial visits to Wisconsin, Creighton, Iowa, Minnesota, St. Thomas and Northern Iowa and multiple visits to some of the schools. He's also had official visits to Creighton and Wisconsin. Jackson said he would like to make more visits to schools he hasn't seen yet before he makes a college decision, but has not set a timetable.
“It will be when it feels right," Jackson said.
Steve said he was more nervous as a parent watching the game with his wife Jennifer and son Jordan than playing for the Bruins in the 1989 title game. He said he was more nervous watching Jackson during the section title game than the state tournament, until the closing moments of the state championship game.
“I could tell almost like my legs were shaking a little bit," Steve said. “It was such a crazy game. There were so many back-to-back plays by both teams. It was just kind of crazy.”

Mpls.St.Paul Magazine and the Star Tribune report that celebrated chef Danny del Prado will soon add a new restaurant to his Twin Cities roster: Macanda will debut on the shores of Lake Minnetonka this summer. Del Prado, who grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina, says that his latest restaurant is influenced by literary magical realism — in particular, the fantastical family drama of Gabriel García Márquez’s One Hundred Years of Solitude, set in the fictional village of Macondo. Del Prado told the Star Tribune that though the restaurant’s menu will be rooted in Latin American cuisine, the dishes will incorporate international flavors, from French and Italian styles to Cajun touches like fried oysters with a celery remoulade.
Macanda will occupy the former Wayzata Brew Works space in Wayzata: In addition to the indoor dining room, the restaurant will feature a 120-seat four-season patio with lake views. (In the chilly months, the patio will be covered and insulated.) Chef Steve McMullen will lead the kitchen, and del Prado’s business partner Aaron Switz is at work assembling a vinyl record lounge.
One of the Twin Cities’ most notable restaurateurs, del Prado adds Macanda to an already impressive lineup of local restaurants: Martina, Colita, Rosalia, Josefina, Sanjusan (in partnership with Shigeyuki Furukawa), and Café Cerés and Cardamom (in partnership with Shawn McKenzie).
Craft Brewers Conference arrives in Minneapolis this week
From May 2 through May 4, the Craft Brewers Conference — an event presented by the Brewer’s Association that brings thousands of brewers together — is taking place in Minneapolis. The conference focuses on brewing education: It offers workshops on business management, on-premise sales, consumer insights, packaging, and more to small and independent brewers. Accordingly, a slate of Twin Cities breweries will roll out special events this week. Check out Racket’s round-up of events and collaborations at Prye’s, Indeed, Lift Bridge, and Bent Paddle.
A second Minnesota Starbucks officially unionizes
Workers at a Cedar Avenue Starbucks in Minneapolis have become Minnesota’s second to successfully unionize after an 11 to 3 vote tally was announced today. The Starbucks unionization wave, which has seen more than 200 stores seek union recognition nationwide, began to catch on in Minnesota this February — five local stores have since joined the wave. In a historic election last week, workers at a Snelling Avenue Starbucks became Minnesota’s first to successfully unionize, and votes at three other metro-area stores (St. Anthony, Mall of America, and Minneapolis) are expected in the coming months. Starbucks has been rattled by recent movement on the union front: In March, the company brought back historically anti-union CEO Howard Schultz, who allegedly confronted a pro-union barista in Long Beach, California, in April.
Taco John’s sues Taco Chon
According to Minneapolis / St. Paul Business Journal, fast food company Taco John’s is suing a Minnesota restaurant with a similar name: Taco Chon, which has locations in Burnsville and St. Cloud. The company’s lawsuit alleges that Taco Chon operates in the “exact same trade channel” and is copycatting Taco John’s image and likeness — in February, it sent a cease-and-desist order to owner Juan Ramos Gutierez. Ramos Gutierez did not change the restaurants’ name: He believes that the company’s actions are overblown. “It’s only two little restaurants in Minnesota,” Ramos Gutierez told the Biz Journal. “I don’t think I’ll be able to hire a lawyer. I’ll represent myself and fight for my dream.”
Lawless Distilling and Boomin Barbecue are back for the season
Two Twin Cities notables have returned to the scene, just in time for summer. Lawless Distilling is open once again in Minneapolis’s Seward neighborhood, as of April 29th. Expect new drinks like the “Hot Knives” cocktail — made with whiskey, hot chili pepper honey, and Blackstrap bitters — plus a new neighborhood deal: Bring a receipt from nearby restaurants Cafe Racer, Midori’s Floating World Cafe, or Milkweed Coffee, reports Mpls.St.Paul Magazine, and get 20 percent off cocktails. Mpls.St.Paul Magazine also reports that Boomin’ Barbecue is open for another season in the Ombibulous parking lot in Northeast Minneapolis. Look for a revamped Juicy Lucy burger and online ordering, new this year. Keep an eye out for more updates on restaurant openings later this week.
The owner of The Promenade of Wayzata has filed an eviction complaint against Anthropologie, Inc., alleging months of unpaid rent totaling nearly $130,000.According to the February 7 filing in Hennepin County District Court, the clothing retailer entered into a commercial lease with the Promonade's owner, Roseville-based Wayzata Bay West Retail in 2014 for 9,500 square feet of space on the ground level of the Promenade shopping center, located at 803 Lake St. in Wayzata.According to the suit, Anthropologie, which is owned by Ph...
The owner of The Promenade of Wayzata has filed an eviction complaint against Anthropologie, Inc., alleging months of unpaid rent totaling nearly $130,000.
According to the February 7 filing in Hennepin County District Court, the clothing retailer entered into a commercial lease with the Promonade's owner, Roseville-based Wayzata Bay West Retail in 2014 for 9,500 square feet of space on the ground level of the Promenade shopping center, located at 803 Lake St. in Wayzata.
According to the suit, Anthropologie, which is owned by Philadelphia-based Urban Outfitters Inc. (NASDAQ:URBN), failed to pay the full rent for September, October, November, and December 2022, as well as January 2023. As of February 1, Anthropologie owes its landlord $180,540 — of that $128,464 is due to unpaid rent while the other is related to attorney fees and other costs as provided under the lease, the suit said.
An eviction hearing in Hennepin County District Court has been scheduled for March 16.
Wayzata Bay West Retail is a limited liability company, with its primary address listed in the lawsuit as 2845 Hamline Ave. N. in Roseville, and is affiliated with Dan Lindh, president and CEO of Presbyterian Homes & Services.
No attorneys are listed for Anthropologie in the Hennepin County court system, and Urban Outfitters Inc., did not respond to a request for comment.
Recent financial news from Urban Outfitters does not indicate there are any problems with the Anthropologie brand. In a Jan. 9 press release, Urban Outfitters boasted about its 2022 sales, saying that "for the eleven months ended December 31, 2022, total company net sales increased 5.1% compared to the eleven months ended December 31, 2021." During the same time period, three new Anthropologie locations were opened across the country.
Wayzata Bay West Retail is being represented by attorneys at Minneapolis-based Bassford Remele, who denied commenting on the litigation.
