There is a newer class of weight loss drugs that is making a world of difference in the lives of thousands across the globe. Have you heard of Wegovy? Or Ozempic?
At the heart of these medications is a peptide called Semaglutide. This peptide is a GLP-1 Agonist and it is a game-changer when it comes to regulating the hormone that affects hunger. It does so by stimulating the pancreas to produce additional insulin, delaying the stomach’s emptying time, and signaling to the brain a feeling of fullness. This results in a very powerful and lasting appetite suppression for most patients. In addition, it helps to improve blood sugar levels.
Semaglutide for weight loss was originally discovered through the drug Ozempic. Ozempic was first developed for Type II diabetes. Patients on this medication noticed that they were significantly less hungry and were losing weight. The manufacturer of Ozempic then received FDA approval for the use of this medication as a weight loss drug and named it Wegovy. These are both semaglutide, the peptide described above.
Adults using semaglutide for weight loss have lost on average 15% of their body weight, with many losing over 20%. We are excited to be providing this "hot shot" at Reveal. Call us and start getting skinny today!
