What are Semaglutide Injections? (Ozempic / Wegovy)

Weight management may be difficult for overweight and obese patients because of poor metabolism, leaving them with less energy and an increased appetite. Semaglutide (Ozempic / Wegovy) is a treatment option for weight loss as it helps balance the hormones in your body.

Semaglutide (Ozempic / Wegovy) is a glucagon-like peptide or GLP-1 agonist analog that helps the body produce more insulin and stabilize blood sugar levels. Initially a treatment for patients with type-2 diabetes, this medication has been FDA-approved for weight loss, even for non-diabetic patients.

Incretin hormones signal the pancreas to release glucagon and insulin. Glucagon increases your blood sugar levels, while insulin reduces it by prompting its conversion to energy. As an incretin-mimetic medication, semaglutide mimics the incretin function to stimulate GLP-1 receptors. It promotes insulin production while hindering glucagon release, preventing high blood sugar levels. For weight loss, this lowers the appetite and slows down gastric emptying. 

How It Affects the Body for Weight Management

Semaglutide injections are incretin mimetic medications that help boost insulin production in your body, helping overweight and obese patients lose weight. This solution has several effects on the body that all work to set you up for success in weight management, like:
