Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the
brain that regulate food intake and appetite. It is a once weekly subcutaneous
injection that you can do at home or have it done in the office. This is the active
ingredient in Wegovy, an FDA approved medication for weight loss, shown to result
in a loss of 15% body weight, on average.
Semaglutide increases insulin secretion, thereby increasing sugar
metabolism. It also delays gastric emptying, which results in a reduced appetite.
At ETX Weight Loss and Vitality, we have seen tremendous success
with this medication.
