What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide belongs to a class of medications known as glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs). It mimics the GLP-1 hormone released in the gut in response to eating. One role of GLP-1 is to prompt the body to produce more insulin, which reduces blood sugar (glucose). For this reason, healthcare providers have used Semaglutide for over 15 years to treat Type 2 diabetes. Additionally, GLP-1 in higher amounts interacts with parts of the brain that suppress appetite and signal fullness. When used in conjunction with diet and exercise, it can cause significant weight loss.

 

How effective is Semaglutide for weight loss in non-diabetics?

There have been several anti-obesity medications that help suppress appetite and achieve weight loss. But Semaglutide performs on a new level.

  • Stomach issues, including nausea, vomiting, pain, or distension (bloat)

Gastrointestinal issues are the most common complaint among people starting Semaglutide. You may be able to reduce the side effects by starting with a lower dose and gradually increasing it.
