What Is Semaglutide? Learn More About This Breakthrough Weight Loss Peptide

Many of us have tried to lose weight at one point or another. However, it can be very disheartening to put in the effort to stick to a weight loss plan with a proper diet and exercise program—only to see the number on the scale stay the same. Though it’s easy to say “just stick with it!” it’s difficult to continue putting in the effort if you’re not seeing your desired results.

Fortunately, new medical breakthroughs are helping people push their plateaus and reach their ideal weight! One of those breakthroughs are semaglutide injections—which are now available at Forum Health Medical Weight Loss. What is Semaglutide? Read on to find out!

An Overview of Semaglutide

Semaglutide belongs to a class of medications called “GLP-1 agonists,” which means that it mimics the action of the same peptide that naturally occurs within your body. When working properly, this peptide specifically helps with your body’s natural insulin production. By injecting the solution into your body, it helps improve the body’s ability to increase insulin secretion and blood sugar disposal, as well as improve glycemic control.

At the same time, what many type 2 diabetes patients noticed while taking semaglutide is that it decreased their appetite and helped them stay fuller for longer periods of time. This resulted in semaglutide becoming a reliable weight loss medication when paired with a healthy diet and exercise—regardless of whether or not a person suffers from type 2 diabetes.

Now, semaglutide injections have received FDA approval as a weight loss medication and have provided enhanced weight loss results to thousands of people across the country! If you’re interested in beginning semaglutide injections as part of your medically supervised weight loss plan, ask a Forum Health provider if treatment is right for you.
