Semaglutide was traditionally used to treat type 2 diabetes. However, it is now widely used as an effective treatment for long-term weight management. Together with physical activity and a lower-calorie program, Semaglutide has proven to help patients shed excess weight in a shorter period of time.

How Semaglutide Works for Weight Loss

Semaglutide aids in the balance of hormones such as insulin, which may suppress appetite and assist in weight management.

A study by the New England Journal of Medicine concluded: “Our trial showed that among adults with overweight or obesity (without diabetes), once-weekly subcutaneous Semaglutide plus lifestyle intervention was associated with substantial, sustained, clinically relevant mean weight loss of 14.9%, with 86% of participants attaining at least 5% weight loss.”
