How Semaglutide works
Semaglutide mimics the actions of the hormone GLP-1, which is produced by the gut and aids in controlling blood sugar levels. GLP-1 lowers blood sugar levels by increasing the synthesis of insulin and reducing the amount of sugar produced by the liver. Additionally, it lessens hunger and slows down how quickly food leaves the stomach, both of which can help with weight loss.
The way Semaglutide works is by attaching to the same receptors in the body as the natural hormone GLP-1. The same biological reactions as GLP-1 are triggered once Semaglutide binds to these receptors, including an increase in insulin production and a decrease in the liver's synthesis of sugar.
Semaglutide has a longer half-life in the body than certain other GLP-1 receptor agonists, making it a long-acting drug which means you only need to take it once per week!
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a medication that is used to control high blood sugar in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus. It belongs to a class of drugs known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists because it binds to and activates the GLP-1 receptor, a protein that plays a crucial role in controlling blood sugar levels.
Semaglutide mimics the effects of GLP-1, a hormone that is naturally produced in the body. GLP-1 helps to control blood sugar levels by stimulating the release of insulin (a hormone that lowers blood sugar) when blood sugar levels are high, reducing the amount of glucose produced and released by the liver, and slowing gastric emptying.
Semaglutide is available as an injectable solution that can be administered once a week. It's often used in conjunction with diet and exercise to improve blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes and has demonstrated dramatic decreases in weight within months of starting treatment. In fact, many people see up to a 15% decrease in weight within 4 months!
