What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is an injectable drug utilized for sustained weight management. It functions as a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist, with GLP-1 being a hormone involved in appetite regulation and digestion, particularly in insulin production.
Initially, under the brand name Ozempic, it received approval in the USA for aiding in blood sugar management for individuals with Type 2 diabetes. However, it has recently gained recognition for its effectiveness in assisting with long-term weight loss.

How Does Semaglutide Work for Weight Loss?
Semaglutide works through a number of processes that can help you lose weight.
Firstly, Semaglutide can help you to feel fuller by actually slowing down the speed at which digested food leaves your stomach. This mechanism reduces the patient’s appetite and hunger levels, meaning that calorie restriction is easier, leading to increased weight loss.
Secondly, the medication increases the natural production of insulin in the body.
When food is consumed, your pancreas creates insulin to help move sugar from your blood into your cells. In individuals who suffer from insulin resistance or a lack of insulin production, this transfer of sugar from the blood to the cells becomes reduced, leading to higher blood sugar levels.
Higher blood sugar levels are linked to increased hunger, making simple calorie restriction difficult and even dangerous. By increasing your body’s ability to produce insulin, blood sugar levels are reduced, leading to lower levels of hunger.
Because of this, Semaglutide was initially introduced to treat Type 2 diabetes, as a lack of insulin production is the main cause of Type 2 diabetes.
However, it is not only those with Type 2 diabetes who can benefit from Semaglutide. Recent studies have shown that Semaglutide is effective at managing weight loss in individuals with and without Type 2 diabetes.
