Semaglutide is the trade name for the peptide hormone GLUL-LF (or GLK-39). Semaglutide can be used to control blood sugar levels in patients with type 1 or type 2 diabetes. However, it has also been approved as an injection for weight loss. The injection provides a slow, steady drip over an extended period of time. People that are looking to lose weight successfully without any major side effects will see many benefits from this injection. However, it does take a bit of time for each patient to reach full dose levels, which is when you begin to notice significant weight loss benefits from the injection.
Segmaglutide injections reduce excess body fat on many areas that people commonly struggle with. These areas can include abdominal fat, and over all body fat as they increase your proportions for lean body mass (lean body mass is the amount of weight someone would carry that is not body fat).
SEMAGLUTIDE (SEM A GLOO Tide) promotes weight loss. It can also be used to maintain weight loss. It works by reducing appetite. Diet changes and exercise are usually used in combination with this medication.
This medicine may not be used for other purposes; if you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.
If you miss a dose and it is more than 2 days before your next scheduled dose, take the missed dose as soon as possible. If you miss a dose and it is less than 2 days before your next scheduled dose, do not take the missed dose. Take your next dose at your usual time. Do not take a double or extra dose. If you miss a dose for 2 weeks or more, take your next dose at your usual time or call your healthcare team to discuss how to resume this medication.
If you have been diagnosed with obesity or are overweight, this injection may be right for you if you want to lose weight.
GLP-1 is an incretin hormone that affects your appetite and digestion. Incretins — hormones released in the digestive tract — are secreted by your body after you’ve eaten a meal. They help lower blood sugar by triggering the release of insulin and blocking sugar production. They also slow down the rate at which food leaves the stomach (called gastric emptying).
The result of these actions is to make you feel full — reducing your appetite and losing weight. Drugs like GLP-1 agonists are called incretin mimetics because they “mimic” these effects.
As mentioned above, GLP-1 agonists like Semaglutide were originally developed to treat type 2 diabetes. This is due to their hypoglycemic effect. However, the weight loss side effect has been shown to be safe and beneficial for people without type 2 diabetes as well.
