Does it work?

YES! There are many clinical trials/studies that support this for weight loss. Like any other treatments, results may vary.

What exactly does the injection do?

In short, it stimulates your pancreas to increase insulin production and use it more efficiently. It slows the rate of GI motility, lowering the rate at which glucose is secreted which means the body stores less fat. It is also an appetite suppressant.

What are the side effects?

Most common side effects are GI related such as nausea, diarrhea, constipation or vomiting. However, most people report these side effects are short term and become less frequent or completely resolve with continued use as the body adjusts.

How many injections are proven before you start losing weight?

Although individual results may vary, weight loss is generally seen after the first week with initiation of treatment and lifestyle changes.

How long is the typical use of these injections? Is this something you would continue forever or helps jumpstart and then you maintain with proper diet and exercise?

It is essentially up to you on how long you decide to remain on the injections, but it is safe to remain on them forever, if your lifestyle cannot be improved or you need extra support. It is important to know if you stop the medication, you may have rebound weight gain and studies have shown up to 2/3 of previous weight loss is regained with withdrawal of treatment.

Does insurance cover?

Typically, no. Most insurance companies are not covering the drug, so through Peko your medication would be self-pay. We do offer several payment options to help with the burden of financial costs and would be happy to provide further information on the payment options we offer!

Is there a contract?

No, there is not a contract. For best results we highly recommend weekly check in messages with our pekomd staff and tracking your progress.

Is this better than the other places? or how is this different than the stuff I can get online?

That’s a difficult question to answer because — well — we don’t know anything about those products and how they’re being formulated (and where they’re coming from). However, our once-weekly injection, managed thru our accredited surgical center, and backed by Dr. Koltz who is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons which means we know we are only supplying the best for our patients. This, partnered with the knowledge of our clinical staff, makes us an outstanding option for anyone looking to lose weight with a trusted product and supportive team.

Is this safe to take before and after surgery with Dr. Koltz?

The medication is safe to continue up to 1 week prior to your surgery and restart 1 week following. Just keep in mind, with this medication, your appetite will be suppressed, so it is important you are still getting enough protein intake to help with surgical healing. Keep in mind you should be getting at least 60 grams of protein daily, so be mindful when you do eat that you are making healthy decisions and incorporating enough protein into your diet.

Patient Experience

Dr. Koltz with team member
Patty W.

I’m love Dr. Koltz. He’s performed a lower face lift in me and recently an abdominoplasty and 360 lipo. I would recommend him to anyone. Thank you to his wonderful staff too. These experiences have enhanced my life immensely.
