How does Semaglutide work for
weight loss?

Semaglutide belongs to a group of medications called GLP-1 receptor agonists. These drugs are used to treat type 2 diabetes and assist with weight management. They work by mimicking a natural hormone called incretin, stimulating insulin release.

How It Works

Semaglutide increases insulin levels in your body, lowering blood sugar (glucose). It also reduces sugar released into the blood and slows down digestion. Additionally, it lessens hunger, delays stomach emptying, and promotes a feeling of fullness after meals, potentially leading to a decrease in overall calorie intake.

Holistic Approach

When aiming for sustainable weight loss, it's essential to consider a holistic approach, including diet and exercise, alongside medication.

Semaglutide for Weight Loss

What are the side effects of Semaglutide for weight loss

Convenient Administration

Semaglutide is administered just once a week via injection, making it more convenient than other diabetes medications that may need to be taken multiple times a day.

Common Reactions

Common side effects include gastrointestinal issues like nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and constipation. Some people may experience more severe side effects, such as pancreatic inflammation, changes in vision, or low blood sugar when used with other diabetes medications.

Not for Everyone

Semaglutide is not suitable for individuals with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. It's also not approved for those under 18 years old. It's crucial to discuss all potential risks with a healthcare provider before starting treatment with semaglutide.
