Semaglutide for Weight Management

Semaglutide is an injectable medication previously used only to treat Type 2 Diabetes. However, in 2021, the FDA approved the use of Semaglutide for long-term weight management in adults.
It is classified as a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) analog, a key hormone produced in the small intestine that stimulates insulin secretion and slows gastric emptying (how fast your stomach empties food).

The benefits of Semaglutide:

  • Decreases appetite
  • Aids in weight loss
  • Decreases body fat percentage
This injectable medication is used in combination with a diet and exercise plan to help patients lose and keep off weight. Along with lifestyle changes, Semaglutide can be helpful to decrease the risk of weight related problems.
