Semaglutide - Not Just For Diabetes
Semaglutide, is a medication initially developed for managing type 2 diabetes. It works by mimicking the action of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that regulates blood sugar levels. But recent studies have revealed that Semaglutide‘s benefits extend beyond glucose control.
One of the key additional benefits of Semaglutide is its impact on weight loss. The medication helps slow down gastric emptying and reduces hunger, leading to lower calorie intake and subsequent weight loss. This has led to its recent approval by the FDA as a chronic weight management treatment in adults with obesity or overweight with at least one weight-related condition such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol, alongside a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity.
Studies have shown that Semaglutide can reduce the risk of major cardiovascular events such as heart attack, stroke, or cardiovascular death in people with type 2 diabetes and known heart disease.
