How Does Semaglutide Work?
Semaglutide belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. GLP-1 is a hormone that is released from the gut after eating. It regulates appetite and slows digestion. Semaglutide works by mimicking the effects of GLP-1, which leads to reduced appetite and slower digestion. This can help you lose weight by eating less and losing less weight through stool (poop).
In clinical trials, semaglutide has been shown to help people lose up to 20% of their body weight. That’s an amazing feat for a medication! And even better, the weight loss is sustainable over the long term. Studies have shown that people who take semaglutide continue to lose weight for up to 2 years.
Are There Any Side Effects?
The most common side effects of semaglutide are nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, stomach pain, low blood sugar (hypoglycemia), headaches, and fatigue. These side effects typically go away after a few weeks as your body adjusts to the medication. If you experience any severe side effects, please contact your healthcare provider immediately.
Semaglutide has also been associated with an increased risk of pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas). Pancreatitis can be serious and even life-threatening, so it’s important to be aware of this potential side effect. If you experience any abdominal pain, severe nausea or vomiting, unusual fatigue or flu-like symptoms, seek medical attention right away as these could be signs of pancreatitis.
