What is Semaglutide/GLP-1?
Semaglutide/GLP-1 is the first approved drug for chronic weight management in obese or overweight adults as a weight loss program. Approximately 70% of American adults are obese or overweight, a severe health issue associated with heart disease, stroke, and diabetes, linked to an increased risk of certain types of cancer. Losing 5% to 10% of body weight through diet and exercise reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease, but diet and exercise alone are not always guaranteed to address the issue.
Semaglutide, or Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), encourages the pancreas to release the right amount of insulin, slowing the body’s digestive rhythm, reducing appetite, and stabilizing blood sugar—all of which power the accomplishment of your medically-supported wellness goals without the expense of surgery or other invasive treatments.
