As we age, losing weight can be incredibly difficult. A newly FDA-approved weight-loss medicine is here to help. Studies have demonstrated that Semaglutide reduced appetite, improved control of eating, and reduced food cravings in addition to improved glycemic control. The greatest weight loss benefits were observed when Semaglutide is used in combination with lifestyle changes.
Semaglutide, also known by it’s Brand name Ozempic, is an injectable medication which helps control blood sugar in type 2 diabetics. Semaglutide belongs to a group of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists, which mimic the hormone GLP-1 in your body to lower blood sugar levels after you’ve eaten a meal.
Glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) is a hormone that has a huge impact on the regulation of blood sugar. It works by stimulating glucose-dependent insulin secretion. Insulin is a hormone that promotes sugar uptake by the cells, stores sugar as glycogen, facilitates the building of fat, and signals the body to build skeletal muscle. Additionally, GLP-1 inhibits glucagon release. This slows down the release of sugar into the blood so that you can burn more fat, slows down gastric emptying (makes you feel full), and drastically reduces the desire for food intake (because you feel full).
All patients start on the lowest dose of Tirzepatide at 2.5mgs injected subcutaneously into belly fat every week. All patients increase by following the titration schedule as tolerated (slower if nauseous), up to a total weekly dose of 15mgs each week.
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist. GLP-1 is a hormone that plays a role in regulating blood sugar levels and appetite. When Semaglutide activates GLP-1 receptors in the brain, it can lead to enhanced feelings of fullness and satiety, ultimately reducing appetite and curbing cravings.
So, in addition to its effects on blood sugar regulation, Semaglutide’s ability to suppress appetite can contribute to weight loss and better weight management. However, it’s important to note that the specific impact on appetite can vary from person to person, and individual responses to the medication may differ.
