Semaglutide is a prescription weight loss medication that regulates hunger hormones and reduces appetite. It is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist injected once a week to support weight loss efforts.
Semaglutide works by controlling hunger hormones in the body. It signals the brain to feel full, reducing appetite and leading to a lower calorie intake. Additionally, Semaglutide can help increase metabolism and promote fat burning, making it an effective tool in aiding weight loss efforts.
Semaglutide is indicated for adults with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater or for adults that have a BMI of 27 or greater and one or more weight-related health conditions, including high blood pressure, diabetes, and high cholesterol.
Like all medications, Semaglutide can cause side effects. Side effects may include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, abdominal pain, and decreased appetite, but vary depending on the patient. Some patients do not experience side effects, just a nice steady weight loss.
