Semaglutide is a medication originally developed to improve and control blood sugar in adults suffering from type 2 diabetes commonly seen under the brand name Ozempic. The FDA recently approved the medication to be used for a mixture of other health related purposes, most commonly for weight loss and weight management.
As we mentioned above, the brand name for Semaglutide is Ozempic. We offer medially supervised Semaglutide treatment in the generic form which is part of a group of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists that helps to balance and control hormones such as insulin, helping to regulate your blood sugar. Semaglutide increases glucose-dependent insulin secretion while decreasing inappropriate glucagon secretion and gastric emptying. Because of blood sugar control, several factors help contribute to weight loss, one being appetite control. Because of the change in your appetite, you begin eating less which helps with weight loss, additionally, paired with the blood sugar regulation comes the reduction in cravings. Additionally, Semaglutide helps you feel more sustained for a longer period of time after meals, reducing snacking and overall caloric intake.
