How Does Semaglutide Medical Weight Loss Work?
Semaglutide comes under several brand names. Before its approval for weight loss, it was used to treat type 2 diabetes due to its beneficial effects on insulin production. Semaglutide mimics the action of GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide 1). This peptide acts on the parts of the brain that control appetite, regulate food intake, and manage how your body responds to the calories you eat. It triggers the release of more insulin to process your food more efficiently, keeping blood sugar stable.
Semaglutide is administered as a weekly injection, given subcutaneously, under the skin. Your dose may vary depending on your needs and your response to the medication. Your team will describe what to expect from the injections. In most cases, you will work with your team to build up to your desired dose to minimize potential side effects. The most common side effects include nausea and digestive disturbances. However, others can occur.
Medical weight loss usually includes a comprehensive program of exercise and nutritional education to help you lose weight in a healthy way. These changes will help you see more results and maintain your weight loss for the long term.
