Works by mimicking the action of a hormone called GLP-1, which helps regulate appetite and food intake.
Is a medication originally developed for treating type 2 diabetes. However, recent studies have shown that it can also be effective for weight loss in people without diabetes.
In addition to its use in type 2 diabetes, Semaglutide has recently been approved by the FDA for the treatment of obesity and overweight in adults. In higher doses than those used in diabetes, Semaglutide can help reduce appetite and increase the feeling of fullness, which can lead to a reduction in food intake and effective weight loss. It is important to note that the use of Semaglutide for weight loss should be combined with a healthy diet and regular physical exercise to achieve optimal results.
