How are weight loss injections administered?
Popular weight loss injections are often a once-weekly subcutaneous injection administered in the abdominal area like insulin. Since the shot is not injected into the muscle, the needle is very small keeping injection site pain to a minimum. The injectable medications work continuously between injections to reduce a patient’s appetite and do not require them to remember to take a daily medication.

Am I an ideal candidate for using weight loss injectables to lose weight?
At Heartland Weight Loss Clinic, we want you to lose weight safely and effectively. That’s why our weight loss plans are customized according to patient needs and restrictions. There are several key factors to consider when qualifying a patient for weight loss injections:
What are weight loss injectables' side effects?
Like every medication, weight loss injections have side effects including nausea, vomiting, constipation or diarrhea, stomach pain, headache, fatigue, dizziness, bloating, belching, gas, stomach flu symptoms, heartburn and loss of desire for alcohol. The intensity and length of these side effects vary by patient. Many of them can be reduced or avoided by eliminating overlap of weekly doses. Heartland Weight Loss Clinic will be happy to review these side effects with you in more detail.
Will my health insurance policy cover weight loss injections?
Most insurance plans and Medicare will not cover the cost of weight loss injections. That’s why Heartland Weight Loss Clinic strives to provide these medications at affordable prices so patients have more options when pursuing a healthier lifestyle. Our initial three-month series of the most popular weight loss injections cost $386 compare to $1,000 charged by other practices. After that first series, prices are subject to change.
