So, what is semaglutide and how can it work for you?

 

WHAT IS SEMAGLUTIDE?

Semaglutide is a Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) produced by the gut. It was first developed in 2012 by Novo Nordisk. In 2017 this drug was approved as an anti-diabetic medication used to treat type 2 diabetes and obesity. In June 2021, it got approved for chronic weight management in obese individuals with a (BMI) ≥ 30 kg/m2) or overweight (initial BMI ≥ 27 kg/m2) with at least one weight-related comorbidity. 

 

WHAT ARE WEGOVY INJECTIONS?

Wegovy™ is an injectable prescription medication for adults with obesity (BMI ≥30) or overweight (excess weight) (BMI ≥27) who also have weight-related medical problems used with a reduced-calorie meal plan and increased physical activity.

 

HOW WEGOVY INJECTIONS WORK

Wegovy™ is the first and only prescription weight-management medicine taken once weekly. It’s taken on the same day each week, any time of day, with or without food. 

Wegovy weight loss injections can:

  • Reduce food intake by lowering appetite. 
  • Slows food digestion in the stomach. 
  • Decrease body fat percentage. 
  • Weight loss. 
  • Decrease cardiovascular outcomes in subjects with type 2 diabetes and cardiovascular disease. 
  • Lower HbA1c levels. 

WHAT ARE THE MOST COMMON SIDE EFFECTS? 

The most common side effects of Wegovy™ may include: nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, stomach (abdomen) pain, headache, tiredness (fatigue), upset stomach, dizziness, feeling bloated, belching, gas, stomach flu, and heartburn.

 

DO YOU REALLY LOSE WEIGHT?

In a 68-week medical study of 1,961 adults living with obesity or excess weight with a related medical problem, adults lost ~35 lbs (or ~15% body weight). People taking placebo lost an average of 6 lbs (or ~2.5% body weight). The average starting weight for both groups was ~232 lbs.*

*Results are from a 68-week medical study of adults with obesity (BMI ≥30)and adults with excess weight (BMI ≥27) who also had weight-related medical problems including high blood pressure or high cholesterol. People with type
2 diabetes were excluded. Both groups were instructed to take the medicine along with a reduced-calorie meal plan
and increased physical activity. 7% of people taking Wegovy™ (92 people) left the medical study due to side
effects, compared to 3.1% of people taking placebo (20 people).
