What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide receptor antogonist which basically improves glycemic control in the pancreas. Semaglutide will delay gastric emptying by reducing glucagon secretion which reduces appetite, lowers sugar cravings and improves overall ability to control eating habits.
This drug has shown remarkable results from multiple studies, with patients losing an average of 30 pounds (16% body weight) over the course of 12 weeks.
DOES SEMAGLUTIDE HAVE SIDE EFFECTS
Most common side effects are: nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, stomach (abdomen) pain, headache, tiredness (fatigue), upset stomach, dizziness, feeling full, belching, gas, stomach flu, and heartburn. Once you get started on the medication, your provider will slowly raise your dosage every 4 weeks to help make these effects more manageable.
HOW IS SEMAGLUTIDE ADMINISTERED?
Weekly subcutaneous injection. While some of you may be afraid of injections, these are actually quite straightforward injections with a VERY SMALL needle into the abdominal area (like insulin injections). There are big advantages to the once-weekly dosing - you don’t have to remember your medications and the semaglutide is working 24/7 suppressing your appetite without the stimulant effects of typical weight loss medication.
HOW DOES SEMAGLUTIDE WORK?
Semaglutide mimics the effect of "feeling full" resulting in a decreased caloric intake. Semaglutide will delay gastric emptying by reducing glucagon secretion in a glucose-dependent manner. The delay in gastric emptying can reduce appetite, improve control of eating, and reduce food cravings.
