Semaglutide Q&A

What is semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a prescription medication originally developed to treat type 2 diabetes. However, recent studies have demonstrated its effectiveness in promoting weight loss in individuals with or without diabetes. It belongs to a class of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists, which work by mimicking the effects of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). This hormone plays a role in regulating appetite and food intake, making semaglutide a valuable tool for weight management. GLPs are some of the most talked about medications available today. The Federal Drug Administration has approved two GLPs for weight loss: semaglutide, which is sold under the brand names "Ozempic®" and "Wegovy®," and mounjaro and liraglutide, which are sold under the brand name "Saxenda®." These drugs are injectable medications that were originally approved by the FDA in 2014. They are GLP receptor agonists that work like your body's normal GLP.

Am I a candidate for semaglutide injections?

Semaglutide may be an option for individuals who have struggled to lose weight through diet and exercise alone. Your eligibility for semaglutide injections depends on various factors, including your weight loss goals, medical history, current medications, and overall health. Ultimately, lifestyle changes are the best option for long-term success and weight loss. However, many people have found that a combination of lifestyle changes and medications, like semaglutide, can help them lose a significant amount of weight effectively. Many patients would prefer to take a magic pill or snap their fingers to lose excess weight. The reality for many people is that it takes a combination of lifestyle changes and medications to achieve their weight loss goals. Miguel Martinez, MD, FACOG, of Femhealth Group, LLC, can help you determine if you're a good candidate for semaglutide injections during a consultation.

How does semaglutide work?

Semaglutide works by acting on certain receptors in the brain that control appetite and food intake.

Semaglutide can help:

*Make you feel full
*Decrease your appetite and food intake
*Reduce your insulin resistance and increase your energy consumption
*Make you feel full faster and longer by increasing the amount of time that food stays in your stomach
*Decrease your cholesterol and help your liver stay healthier

Consequently, semaglutide injections offer a host of weight loss benefits.

Are semaglutide injections effective?

Everyone responds differently to medications, but depending on your weight, you can lose 5 to 20% of your weight. Most people see a significant reduction in their weight after semaglutide. Clinical studies have shown that semaglutide injections can lead to significant weight loss in individuals with obesity or overweight. In conclusion, semaglutide offers a promising option for individuals seeking medical assistance with weight loss.
