What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a medication used to treat type 2 diabetes. It belongs to the class of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists, which work by increasing insulin secretion and reducing appetite. Recently, a higher dose of semaglutide has been approved by the FDA as a treatment for obesity, with the brand name Wegovy. It has been shown to be effective in aiding weight loss in overweight and obese individuals when combined with diet and exercise. Semaglutide works by suppressing appetite and reducing caloric intake, leading to sustained weight loss. However, it is important to note that it is not a magic pill and should only be used under the guidance of a Nuviva Coach.
