Semaglutide is a modified molecule our bodies make, called a GLP-1 analog. It works by increasing insulin production and lowers glucagon secretion as well as targets areas in the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. A small change in the molecule allows the drug to last weeks in our bodies rather than the natural version our bodies make, which lasts minutes.
Semaglutide acts in the following ways:
Decreased Appetite and Cravings
Improved Blood Glucose Control
The most common side effects include nausea and constipation. * Patients also report acid reflux, stomach pain, vomiting, and diarrhea. The risk of serious side effects increases in patients with hypoglycemia, kidney problems, and risk of allergic reactions.
*1mg/mL of Cyanocobalamin added to reduce nausea side effects.
**This medication is not insulin and should not be used if you have type 1 diabetes or if you develop diabetic ketoacidosis. Semaglutide should not be used with any other GLP-1 medications.
RISK OF THYROID C−CELL TUMORS. If you or any family members have been diagnosed with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia Syndrome Type 2 or Medullary thyroid cancer you should not take Semaglutide. If you have ever had pancreatitis consult with your medical provider as using Semaglutide can increase the risk of developing pancreatitis.
