Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist. This peptide mimics the actions of incretin, that plays a role in your appetite and digestion. Incretin – peptide is released by your digestive track – signals are sent to your body after you’ve eaten a meal. They help to lower your blood sugar by triggering insulin release and blocking sugar production.
Semaglutide is a weekly injection to assist with weight loss. Semaglutide should be used in combination with lifestyle changes, including a healthy diet and exercise.
We are happy to do consultations with individuals 18 years and older.
Semaglutide is a glucagon – like peptide (GLP-1) agonist that plays a role in your appetite and digestion.
Incretins — hormones released by your digestive tract — are sent out by your body after you’ve eaten a meal. They help lower your blood sugar by triggering insulin release and blocking sugar production. They also slow down how quickly food leaves your stomach (called gastric emptying).
The result of these actions causes you to feel full — lowering your appetite and causing you to lose weight. Medications like GLP-1 agonists are referred to as incretin mimetics since they “mimic” these effects.
As mentioned above, GLP-1 agonists, like Semaglutide, were originally used to treat Type 2 diabetes. This was due to their blood sugar-lowering effects. However, the weight loss side effect has been shown to benefit people without Type 2 diabetes as well.
