Weight Loss With Semaglutide

Weight Loss With Semaglutide

Semaglutide injections are part of a prescription-based, medically supervised weight loss program which also incorporates healthy eating and exercise.

Originally prescribed for patients with type 2 diabetes, semaglutide is used to help with weight loss in those who are overweight or obese and also suffer from high blood pressure, high cholesterol or type 2 diabetes.

Semaglutide (known under the brand names Ozempec and Wegovy) targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. It also helps the pancreas release the right amount of insulin when blood sugar levels are high, smoothing out the extreme highs and lows that negatively impact hunger and metabolism.

Sixty to 70 percent of midlife women experience weight gain as they approach menopause. Unfortunately, throughout perimenopause, the rate of fat gain doubles and lean mass declines. In addition, fat distribution shifts and body composition changes, leading to an increased risk of cardio-metabolic disorders, including high blood pressure and obesity.

According to a large double-blind, placebo-controlled study of semaglutide effectiveness published in New England Journal of Medicine, adults who received semaglutide injections lost an average of 12.4% of their initial body weight compared to individuals who received placebo. Losing 5% to 10% of body weight has been associated with a reduced risk of cardiovascular disease in adult patients with obesity or those who are overweight.

If your weight loss efforts need a boost, consider weekly semaglutide injection therapy.
