Semaglutide medical weight loss is the ﬁrst FDA-Approved weight loss medication since 2014. Semaglutide is a once weekly injection for adults with obesity (BMI>30) or overweight adults with (BMI>27) weight-related medical issues.

GLP-1 is an incretin hormones are released by your digestive tract and 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. Additionally, Semaglutide slows gastric emptying, leading you to feel fuller for longer.
Semaglutide was studied in four, 68-week trials on more than 2,600 patients for safety & efﬁcacy. The largest clinical trial showed that adults taking Semaglutide lost an average of 15% of their body weight, 12% more than their placebo taking peers. In these same trials, more than a third of participants receiving Semaglutide lost 20% of their body weight.

Weekly treatment with Semaglutide leads to reduced excess body fat and increased lean body mass. Through this improvement of body composition, there is potential to reduce the risk of heart disease, diabetes, and strokes in people with excess weight and obesity.
