Semaglutide | Weight Loss | Phoenix
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is an FDA-approved medication developed for management of type-2 diabetes, but now approved for weight loss. It was discovered that in overweight or obese diabetic patients, this drug curbed appetite and had remarkable weight loss properties.
How does Semaglutide Work?
Semaglutide works by simulating the effects of the hormone your body produces when you eat food, called incretin. After you eat a big meal, your body releases incretin which signals the feeling of fullness and tells your brain to stop eating. In addition, it also helps to prevent the effects of insulin resistance which also contributes to a feeling of fullness and reduces cravings for sugary or unhealthy foods. Coupled with diet and exercise, Semaglutide has been shown to have remarkable weight loss properties.
