What is semaglutide, is it useful for weight loss ?
Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists. It is used to improve blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes and is also approved for use as an injectable treatment for weight loss in adults who are obese or overweight and have at least one weight-related condition such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol.
Semaglutide works by stimulating the release of insulin and slowing the digestion of food in the gut, which can help lower blood sugar levels and promote weight loss. It is typically injected once a week and is usually taken in combination with a healthy diet and exercise.
Semaglutide has been shown to be effective at helping people with type 2 diabetes lower blood sugar levels and achieve weight loss, but it can cause side effects such as nausea, diarrhea, and stomach pain. It is important to follow the dosage and treatment plan prescribed by your healthcare provider and to talk to your provider if you experience any side effects.
