What is medical weight loss?

Semaglutide Medical weight loss is a monitored weight loss program where injections or oral medications are used to improve weight loss outcomes. Semaglutide, initially developed to treat type 2 diabetes, has garnered attention for its remarkable effectiveness in promoting weight loss when used at higher doses. This medication, classified as a GLP-1 receptor agonist, offers several mechanisms for weight loss. It mimics the action of the hormone GLP-1, reducing appetite and enabling individuals to consume fewer calories. It also slows stomach emptying, leading to prolonged feelings of fullness and decreased snacking. By curbing appetite and delaying gastric emptying, Semaglutide contributes to a calorie deficit, ultimately aiding in weight loss.

Additionally, it can improve blood sugar control, particularly for those with obesity and type 2 diabetes. Semaglutide may also offer broader health benefits, including cardiovascular improvements. Importantly, its use should be supervised by a healthcare professional, especially due to the higher doses involved, and it is intended for individuals with a BMI indicating overweight or obesity who have not achieved sufficient weight loss through diet and exercise alone.
