What is a Semaglutide? 

Semaglutide is a medicine that can help promote or maintain weight loss. It’s an ideal solution for individuals with obesity or weight-related conditions who struggle to lose weight.

How Does  Semaglutide Work? 

Semaglutide works by decreasing your appetite. This medication is classified as an incretin mimetic, aiding digestion and blood sugar control. Semaglutide helps the pancreas release the correct amount of insulin when your blood sugar levels are high, ultimately helping sugar move from the blood to other body tissues where it’s used for energy.

Combining your semaglutide treatment with the proper diet and exercise can help individuals effectively lose weight.
