Semaglutide is an injectable drug that mimics the function of the GLP-1 hormone, which regulates appetite within the brain. The process suppresses appetite and results in other benefits, such as reduced blood sugar by limiting sugar production in the liver, as well as increased anti-inflammation and cardiovascular health.
Semaglutide may also go by other names, including Ozempic, Rybelsus, and Wegovy. The drug functions by boosting the body’s natural insulin secretion, resulting in appetite suppression and weight loss. Scientific research has shown Semaglutide’s impressive effectiveness across multiple studies. On average, patients can expect to see a 15 to 20 percent reduction in body weight.
Semaglutide, the GLP-1 receptor agonist, is an FDA-approved injectable treatment for chronic weight loss programs.
It can be difficult to reduce unwanted fat through traditional diet and exercise. Semaglutide treatment provides an additional 15 to 20 percent reduction in body weight in comparison to a 2 to 3 percent reduction in body weight when using traditional diet and exercise alone. Semaglutide slows gastric processes/emptying and reduces appetite. As a result, individuals tend to eat less since it staggers the release of glucose from digested food, which drives a more robust weight loss.
In the graph below, participants with (BMI >30) took 2.4 mg Semaglutide each week for 68 weeks. The treatment group lost about 15% body weight (37 lb for a 250 lb individual). The placebo group lost 2.4% body weight. You can expect even better results combined with a medical weight loss program.
Weight loss experts may prescribe Semaglutide treatment and other ongoing initiatives, such as personalized exercise plans, behavioral intervention, and lipotropic injections (b6) to improve metabolism.
