Semaglutide and Your BMI

Semaglutide is a weight-loss medication, regulated by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). It works by increasing the production of insulin in the body. This helps to regulate blood sugar levels and reduce appetite. Research shows its effectiveness varies based on starting BMI (higher BMIs often see more weight loss).

Semaglutide not only helps with weight loss but also with blood sugar control and heart health. These effects might be influenced by your starting weight.

BMI Requirements for Semaglutide

There are BMI requirements in order to take semaglutide that are the same for both men and women.

According to the FDA guidelines, semaglutide is approved for use in adults with a BMI of 27 or greater. This means that individuals with a calculated BMI of less than 27 are not eligible for semaglutide-assisted weight loss programs.

To check your BMI and see if you qualify for semaglutide, you can use our free online BMI calculator for adults above.

Understanding Your BMI

BMI is a measure of body fat based on a person’s height and weight. The BMI calculator formula divides a person’s weight in pounds by their height in inches squared.

  • 18.5 – 24.9: Normal weight
  • 25 – 29.9: Overweight
  • 30 – 34.9: Obese
  • 35+: Severely/morbidly obese

While BMI is a popular tool for assessing weight status, it doesn’t account for factors like muscle mass. So, it may not be an accurate indicator of individual health for athletes or those with high muscle mass.

Semaglutide Eligibility

To be eligible for our semaglutide weight loss program, you’ll need to meet a few requirements:

  • Have a BMI of 27 or higher.
  • Be 18 years of age or older.
  • Not be pregnant or likely pregnant.
  • Meet the additional medical eligibility requirements outlined here.

Our doctors strictly adhere to these guidelines to make sure the program works well for everyone

The FDA has established these guidelines to ensure the safe and appropriate use of the medication. Individuals with a BMI of less than 27 may want to explore other options for weight loss, and should consult with a healthcare provider to determine the best approach for their individual needs.
