Simply put, semaglutide injections are a kind of treatment that aids in the management of blood sugar levels in people with type 2 diabetes and can also be used to manage and promote weight loss. This medication can help balance out hormones, like insulin, which may curb appetite and allow people to shed pounds by eating less. Research has found that patients taking the drug lost 15-20% of their body weight over 68 weeks, compared to 2.4% in patients taking the placebo.
HOW DOES SEMAGLUTIDE WORK?
Semaglutide is an FDA approved injectable glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist that’s administered once weekly for obesity. Semaglutide is the active ingredient in Wegovy and Ozempic. While we do not use the brand name medications, we use the same dosing of Semaglutide and compound it with B12, which aids with increased energy and boosts your metabolism! Semaglutide injectables resemble the body’s GLP-1 hormone. GLP-1 stimulates the pancreas to release insulin and slows stomach emptying after meals to manage blood sugar.
Semaglutide weight loss works by increasing the amount of insulin produced by the pancreas and decreasing the amount of glucagon produced by the liver. This combination results in reduced hunger and increased energy levels, leading to weight loss.
A lot of patients decide to get Semaglutide injections to manage medical weight loss. That said, Semaglutide works by slowing down the rate at which the stomach empties and by increasing sensations of fullness, both of which can assist in reducing the amount of food consumed and ultimately contribute to weight reduction.
In addition to this, it has been shown that semaglutide can speed up the breakdown of fat in the body and decrease the accumulation of fat. It also has a positive impact on metabolism and has the potential to enhance insulin sensitivity, both of which can contribute to weight loss in addition to other health benefits. People who have had difficulty losing weight by diet and exercise alone may benefit from adding Semaglutide to their weight reduction regimen.
