Semaglutide Effective Medical Weight Loss

It’s a game-changer in the world of weight loss.

A large study was published recently by the New England Journal of Medicine showing some impressive weight loss effects in non-diabetics taking semaglutide.

  • 50% of people in the treatment group lost at least 15% of their body weight over 68 weeks and 86% lost at least 5%.

  • Fasting insulin was reduced by 26% and liver function tests normalized.

  • Patients continued to lose weight for more than 60 weeks without hitting a plateau.

  • It’s a protein made in the intestine and results in a decrease in blood sugars and appetite.

A small change in the molecule allows Semaglutide to last weeks in our bodies rather than minutes. Originally used for diabetes, Semaglutide is a higher dose of the same drug for weight loss.
