The FDA has approved Semaglutide for the treatment of weight loss in adults. Patients who receive injections of Semaglutide for weight management feel full longer and are less hungry. This makes it easier for most people to control their cravings and overeating urges.
Semaglutide is a GLP-1 analog, which is similar to glucagon-like peptides (GLPs). The small intestine produces GLP-1. Insulin stimulates the release of blood sugar and inhibits the release of glucagon. Weekly injections of Semaglutide help to improve glycemic control and reduce appetite and food cravings.
According to doctors, this peptide is two times more effective than prescription weight loss products available today. The average weight loss for obese or overweight adults taking Semaglutide weekly was 14.9%. More than 32% of participants lost 20% or more of their initial weight while taking Semaglutide.
