Weight Loss Edgewood MD What Is Semaglutide

Semaglutide is a cutting-edge medication that provides powerful benefits during weight loss in Edgewood

Imagine a medication that dramatically lessens your hunger, and reduces the amount of food you want to eat, all while regulating your blood sugar, helping those carb cravings to go away. Semaglutide is just that medication!

The FDA has recently approved Semaglutide, a prescribed medication for Weight Loss. It mimics the effects of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which increases insulin production, impacts blood sugar, and supports a healthy metabolism.

How Do I Use Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is administered once a week by subcutaneous injection (into fat) with a small insulin syringe. The dose is gradually increased over time, allowing you to continue to feel the amazing benefits of this medication.

Semaglutide also decreases "gastric emptying," the process by which stomach contents are moved into the first part of the small intestine which in return causes a person to feel full LONGER.

Semaglutide also stimulates our body to create more insulin which removes sugar from the bloodstream. This helps to reduce our appetite and craving for sweets.

The Side Effects

Semaglutide works directly with the gastrointestinal system, so the most common side effects are gastrointestinal in nature.

Some of the most common side effects experienced by those who use Semaglutide for weight loss include:

  • Nausea
  • Gas
  • Vomiting
  • Constipations
  • Stomach Pain
  • Heartburn
  • Diarrhea

Help for individuals struggling to lose weight has finally arrived! In June of 2021, the US FDA approved the use of Semaglutide for weight loss. Since then thousands of people achieved amazing results with the use of this promising weight loss drug and now it is your turn.

How Does It Work For Weight Loss?

GLP-1, is secreted in the gut and targets receptors throughout the body, including the brain. When a person is eating, GLP-1 sends the brain the "I'm Full" signal. Semaglutide mimics this hormone which causes you to feel full QUICKER.
