Whether it’s shown up on your social media, your favorite celebrity used it to prepare for their next movie or your relative is trying it out, learn what the Semaglutide hype is all about.
WHAT IS IT?
Simply put, Semaglutide is a medication that individuals with type 2 diabetes use for treatment which was developed in 2012. However, in 2021, the FDA approved it for chronic weight management, as used by many today. Let’s break it down a bit.
Semaglutide is part of a group of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists. These GLP-1 receptor agonists mimic what the hormone glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) does, which is to regulate blood sugar levels. To regulate this, insulin production is increased, glucagon production is decreased and digestion is decelerated.
HOW DOES IT WORK FOR WEIGHT LOSS?
The brain has specific areas that regulate appetite. Semaglutide focuses on these areas, helping the individual to have increased feelings of being full and less of feeling\ hungry. In addition, the digestion process is slowed down, so the person feels fuller longer.
Because blood sugar levels are more managed, as well, this can influence appetite and food cravings. All of these aspects make for a lower caloric intake and, therefore, weight loss.
IS IT SAFE?
Short answer — yes. That being said written, ShedRx does require certain qualifications to ensure the safety of their patients. The Telehealth Initial Consultation allows an opportunity for individuals to meet with a ShedRx clinician to get started, going over your starting BMI (body mass index), the proper dosage for you, personal goals, etc.
