Semaglutide

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is an injectable medication initially developed as a treatment for Type 2 Diabetes. It is the first FDA approved weight loss medication since 2014 and is administered via weekly injections. It is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) which is a substance your body naturally produces when you eat that affects your appetite/ GLP-1 stops you from feeling hungry, reduces your food cravings and makes you feel full or satisfied.

Who is a candidate?

If you have a  BMI of 27 with a weight related medical problem (elevated cholesterol, pre-diabetes, high blood pressure, high visceral fat, PCOS). If your BMI is 30+, you do not need a weight related medical problem.

 

You are NOT a good candidate for Semaglutide if you have any of the following: diabetic retinopathy, low blood sugar, decreased kidney function, pancreatitis, medullary thyroid cancer (MTC) or a family history of MTC, or multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MTC). Breastfeeding or those who are pregnant or trying to conceive/start/or add to their family in the next 3 months (both men and women) patients are also not advised to take this medication.

What are the side effects?

  • Nausea
