Most common FAQ’s

What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide receptor agonist (GLP-1 RA), that is included in a class of antidiabetic agents called incretin mimetics, which are natural signals that our body uses to control glucose. Originating from the gut, GLP-1 RA is a bioidentical peptide that our body’s naturally use to regulate glucose and enhance insulin secretion.
How does it work?
In addition to enhancing glucose metabolism, Semaglutide also slows gastric emptying, which makes you feel full. It can cause significant weight loss and therefore a reduction in the risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease in those who are obese or overweight. It is indicated as a tool to use in addition to therapeutic lifestyle changes that include healthy dietary and exercise habits.
How long do I use it for?
Semaglutide is a treatment option that can be used long-term (ie > 12 mo.). According to the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists and American College of Endocrinology (AACE/ACE) Obesity Clinical Practice Guidelines, weight loss medications should be offered as chronic treatment along with lifestyle modifications to patients with obesity when the potential benefits outweigh the risks. Short-term pharmacotherapy has not been shown to produce longer-term health benefits and cannot be generally recommended.
