SEMAGLUTIDE WEIGHT LOSS
Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that
targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake.
GLP-1 agonists like Semaglutide help to control your blood sugar, but people taking
them also tend to lose weight. GLP-1, the key hormone involved, slows down how fast
your stomach empties food. And in addition to causing your pancreas to release insulin,
Semaglutide also blocks a hormone that causes your liver to release sugar (glucagon).
Together, these functions can help you feel less hungry, causing you to eat less food and
lose more weight.

With Semaglutide, you will slowly work your way up to the target dose at which time you will see the most amount of weight loss. It is important to keep in mind that weight loss can take time, and you’ll see the best results when you are using your medication in combination with a healthy diet and exercise. Sometimes the medication may not work for you, or you may not be able to tolerate the full dose due to side effects.

Possible Side Effects of Semaglutide
Nausea is the most common side effect associated with Semaglutide, with as many as
20% of people taking this medication for Type 2 diabetes reported experiencing nausea
as a result. Nausea is even more common when you reach the higher dose typically used
for weight loss. Vomiting may also occur, though it's less common. Many patients report
that this side effect lessens over time. Small, low-fat meals will help reduce this side
effect while supporting your weight loss journey.
Diarrhea is another common side effect of Semaglutide. Around 20% of patients using
the medication for weight loss reported diarrhea. Although constipation may also occur,
it's less common. While digestive problems and mild stomach pain are fairly frequent
with this drug, you should not experience severe stomach pain or pain that radiates to
your back. If this occurs, you should get immediate medical attention since this can be a
sign of a more severe complication.
Fatigue affects about 11% of people using Wegovy for weight loss. Fatigue is less
common among patients using Semaglutide for diabetes. It was reported in just 5% of
people taking Ozempic and not at all by any patients using Rybelsus.
You should not take this medication if you are a type 1 Diabetic, are pregnant or planning
to get pregnant, if you or any family members have been diagnosed with multiple
endocrine neoplasia syndrome or medullary thyroid cancer.
Administration of Semaglutide is a once weekly subcutaneous (SUBQ) injection that you
will administer yourself at home.
