Semaglutide is a medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes and obesity. It belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 agonists). Semaglutide works by mimicking the effects of the natural hormone GLP-1, which helps regulate blood sugar levels and promotes weight loss.
In the context of diabetes, semaglutide can improve blood sugar control by stimulating insulin secretion, slowing down digestion, reducing appetite, and promoting a feeling of fullness. It is typically administered as a once-weekly injection.
For obesity, semaglutide is prescribed at a higher dose than for diabetes treatment. It helps with weight loss by reducing hunger and increasing feelings of satiety. When combined with lifestyle modifications, such as a healthy diet and regular exercise, semaglutide can be an effective option for managing obesity.
