What Is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide is a breakthrough medication prescribed by our team to assist you in your weight loss journey. This is how it works: GLP-1 is a hormone produced in the intestines that regulates glucose metabolism and appetite. Semaglutide exerts its effects by activating the exact GLP-1 receptor in the brain. When semaglutide binds to the GLP-1 receptor, it enhances the secretion of insulin. This regulates blood sugar levels.
Additionally, Semaglutide slows your gastric emptying, resulting in prolonged feelings of fullness and reduced food intake. It also acts on the brain's appetite control centers, suppressing appetite and reducing food cravings. These multifaceted mechanisms make Semaglutide an effective tool for weight loss and improving metabolic health.
This FDA-approved medication has shown significant efficacy in clinical trials, leading to notable weight loss results. Our healthcare professionals will carefully tailor the prescription of semaglutide in Lakewood to your needs, so as to achieve effective results.
