What is Iowa IV?

Iowa IV is a hydration therapy clinic.

Sanchez himself is a Nurse Practitioner who specializes in family and anti-aging medicine that includes weight loss hormone replacement therapy and other approaches.

“I started my career as an ICU nurse and advanced my education in pharmacology and many other advanced certifications,” Sanchez shared.

Sanchez believes that being the medical director at Iowa IV is a great fit for him.


“I partnered as the medical director with Iowa IV because the owner, Kari, and all the staff were patient-focused and friendly, all while centered around intertwining a health care experience with a great patient experience,” Sanchez explained some of the reasons why he enjoys his job at Iowa IV.

Weight-loss treatment


In addition to hydration and vitamins, Iowa IV offers the administration of Semaglutide that could help patients to lose extra pounds.

Semaglutide is an FDA-approved medication for weight loss that is administered once a week. This is for adults suffering from obesity who also have weight-related medical problems.


This medication helps overweight individuals lose weight and keep it off. Semaglutide works by mimicking the hormone GLP-1 in the areas of the brain that are responsible for appetite and food intake. It will help patients eat less. Semaglutide should be used along with a nutritional plan and increased physical activity.

“The medication is administered once a week in the belly fat with a needle the size of an eyelash,” Sanchez explained how Semaglutide is administered and who is not eligible for this type of therapy. “Semaglutide is not offered to patients with: type 1 diabetes, thyroid cancer, pancreatitis, or pregnant or intend to become pregnant. Otherwise, most all other patients can be a candidate, but we do recommend all patients to consult with their doctor first.”

Iowa IV is the clinic with the goal of providing the best IV services to patients in the Des Moines area and the communities of Waukee and Clive. If you are feeling a little low on energy, consider Iowa IV to help you get those extra vitamins and minerals to help you through the busy Holiday season. Also, if you need it, consider consulting with the professionals at Iowa IV to see if the Semaglutide program can help you lose some weight and get healthier for the new year. Iowa IV offers many possibilities for a healthier you.
