Semaglutide Weight loss Program


What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide, a subcutaneous injection, is a long-acting analog of a naturally occurring hormone in the body Glucagon-likepeptide-1 (GLP-1) GLP-1 is a peptide hormone produced in the small intestine that stimulates insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon secretion, which slows gastric emptying, and helps control appetite – all of which aid in weight loss.

How does the medication work?

Semaglutide may help stabilize your blood sugar. It targets multiple receptors throughout the body related to appetite and hunger. While using Semaglutide, patients have been known to lose weight because GLP-1, the key hormone involved, may slow the rate at which your stomach empties food. Semaglutide may also block the hormone glucagon that causes your liver to release sugar. The combination of these mechanisms supports appetite control, making you feel less hungry, and therefore eat less food.
