What Is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a medication known as Rybelsus®, Wegovy®, and Ozempic®. Primarily designed for type 2 diabetes management, semaglutide is also excellent at weight control.

It works by making glucagon-like peptide-1 or GLP-1. Your body already has GLP-1 and uses it for blood sugar and hunger control. Using semaglutide keeps you feeling fuller longer, reducing your need to eat.

Who’s Eligible to Take Semaglutide for Weight Loss?

You’re a candidate for semaglutide for weight loss if your BMI is 27 and up. If you also have high cholesterol, high blood pressure, or type 2 diabetes, you should be able to receive a prescription after your initial consultation.

You can take semaglutide as a pill or injection. Most people relying on this medication to manage their weight will receive an injection of 2.4 milligrams once every seven days, but factors like your health needs and which brand you use can lead to higher or lower dosages.

Do You Still Need to Exercise and Diet When Taking Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is not a miracle treatment, so you should still maintain a healthy diet and exercise regimen to see and maintain results. Refrain from eating unhealthy fat sources too frequently, and instead, fill your diet with healthy fats, whole grains, lean proteins, fruits, and vegetables. You should also exercise. There’s no need to change your exercise regimen, but it’s recommended to get 30 minutes of physical activity per day.
