What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is an FDA-approved weight-loss medication that can help patients achieve their weight loss goals. Semaglutide is prescribed as a weight-loss treatment to patients who need to reduce their BMI but who have struggled to achieve any significant weight loss with diet and exercise alone. This is a game-changing weight loss drug that has been clinically proven to reduce up to 16.0% of body weight in overweight and obese patients when combined with a low-calorie diet and behavioral therapy.
How Does Semaglutide Work?
Semaglutide contains a GLP-1 receptor as the active medicine. Drugs like this are designed to mimic a hormone that our bodies naturally produce after we’ve eaten. This hormone is what sends a signal to the brain, telling you to stop eating because you’re satisfied. It also slows down the digestive process so that any food you’ve eaten stays in your stomach for longer, making you feel more satisfied.
Semaglutide works by assisting the pancreas in releasing the right amount of insulin to regulate blood sugar levels. It also slows food movement through the stomach, reducing appetite and facilitating adherence to a lower-calorie diet. This medication only needs to be injected once a week for effective weight loss results.
