How does Semaglutide work in the body?

Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist, which means it mimics the function of GLP-1, a hormone in the body that helps regulate blood sugar levels. It works by stimulating the release of insulin, a hormone that lowers blood sugar, and by inhibiting the release of glucagon, a hormone that raises blood sugar.
