What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a new FDA-approved weight loss treatment that has recently hit the headlines. It is a once weekly injection that works by mimicking a peptide called GLP-1.

What is GLP-1?

Glucagon-like peptide-1 (or GLP-1) is a naturally occurring hormone in the body that is secreted in the gut and targets multiple receptors throughout the body related to appetite and hunger.

Who is a candidate for Semaglutide?

Almost anyone who has weight to lose and has trouble losing weight on their own. 

Who is NOT a candidate for Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is not recommended for those who have ever had (or have a family history of) a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid carcinoma (MTC) or if you (or a member of your family) have an endocrine system condition called Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2). Semaglutide is also not recommended for those who have had a serious allergic reaction to Semaglutide or any of the ingredients in Semaglutide. Semaglutide is not recommended for those with Type I diabetes.
