NJBC Now Offering FDA-Approved Prescription Weight Loss Injection Wegovy™
New Jersey Bariatric Center now offers Wegovy™, the FDA-approved prescription weight loss injection. Wegovy™ is a weekly, self-administered injection used for the treatment of chronic weight management in adults with obesity. Wegovy™ works by mimicking a hormone that targets the area of your brain that regulates appetite, with studies showing that the drug helped people lose up to 15% of their body weight when used in combination with diet and exercise.
Approximately 1 in 4 adults in the state of New Jersey suffers from obesity, which can lead to chronic health issues such as type 2 diabetes, high blood pressure, sleep apnea and other obesity-related conditions.
At New Jersey Bariatric Center, we understand that weight loss is not easy. If you have struggled to lose weight or sustain weight loss in the past, speak with one of our clinical team members to find out if Wegovy™ is a good fit for you.
