What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a modified molecule our bodies make, called a GLP-1 analog. Originally used for diabetes and sold under the name Ozempic®. In June 2021, Wegovy, (brand name) Semaglutide, was FDA approved for weight loss.
Semaglutide comes in an injectable prescription form and is commonly used for adults with obesity (BMI≥30) or overweight (excess weight) (BMI ≥27) who also have weight-related medical problems to help them lose weight and keep the weight off.
How Does Semaglutide Work?
It works by increasing insulin production and lowers glucagon secretion as well as targets areas in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. Your brain gets signals from different places in your body. Some of these signals are appetite hormones that help regulate how much food you eat.
Semaglutide works similarly to one of these natural appetite hormones, so you eat fewer calories, and lose weight.
