Frequently Asked Questions

What is a GLP-1 agonist?
GLP-1 agonists are a class of weight-loss drugs that were originally developed to treat type-2 diabetes, but have been proven to help people lose weight. These drugs work by increasing insulin production while slowing digestion. This can make patients feel satisfied more easily and consume less calories, thus leading to weight loss. 

How do I take GLP-1 agnonist shots?
Patients take a weekly painless subcutaneous shot where the skin around the abdomen is pinched and an injection is delivered just below the skin’s surface with a short needle.

Should I exercise while getting weight loss injections?
It is optimal to pair any weight loss program with an exercise plan. Dr. Maria Mikolaenko recommends certified personal trainer Dennis Smith if in the Riverhead NY area for one on one plans.
