The medication Semaglutide was first developed in 2012 by Novo Nordisk as a longer-acting option to Liraglutide. It was approved in 2017 as an anti-diabetic medication used to treat type 2 diabetes and obesity and in June of 2021, was approved by the FDA for chronic weight management.
At Metrobest Health Services, Semaglutide is used for adults with a BMI greater than or equal to 30 mg/kg² alone or 27 mg/kg² and with at least one weight-related comorbidity such as insulin resistance, hypertension, high cholesterol, heart disease, and/or gout. Semaglutide is in a class of medications called glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) agonists. GLP-1 agonists work by stimulating your pancreas to increase insulin. This additional insulin causes the stomach to empty over a longer period of time.
Semaglutide is intended to be a long-acting prescription medicine, designed to be used over the course of several months. The dosing of the drug is also incremental, starting at a low dose and increasing every 4 weeks. Establishing healthy habits while on Semaglutide will help sustain long term weight management and an overall healthier body.
