Learn More About Semaglutide for Weight Management
The FDA approved Semaglutide for diabetic treatment in December 2017, and in 2021, it was approved for weight management. Semaglutide is quickly becoming a viable option for people seeking medical help for weight loss who are opposed to invasive bariatric surgery. Semaglutide works by increasing the hormone GLP-1 in the body. GLP-1 is a natural substance that helps to regulate blood sugar levels. By increasing GLP-1 levels, Semaglutide can help to control blood sugar levels and improve glycemic control, leaving you feeling full longer.
HOW IS SEMAGLUTIDE ADMINISTERED?
Semaglutide is available in a once-weekly injection, performed by our Nurse Practioner Arlene Milam, MSN FNP-BC. The injection is given under the skin of the upper arm, the stomach, or the thigh. Your Nurse Practioner, Arlene will make recommendations for dosage administered based on your results and how well you are tolerating the medication.
BENEFITS OF SEMAGLUTIDE
Semaglutide is used for weight management in patients and to improve blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes. Semaglutide works by increasing the level of the GLP-1 hormone, which helps the pancreas to produce more insulin. In addition, Semaglutide helps to reduce the amount of sugar produced by the liver and delays the emptying of the stomach. Clinical studies have shown that Semaglutide can help to lower HbA1c levels, body weight, and fasting blood sugar levels. It may also help to reduce the risk of heart disease and complications such as eye and kidney problems.
