Semaglutide belongs to a group of medications known as GLP-1 receptor agonists or glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists. It helps increase insulin secretion, which is beneficial for people with diabetes. When taken at higher doses, it works on certain areas in the brain and helps to suppress appetite. However, it’s essential to combine this medication with healthy lifestyle intervention.

How Much Weight Can You Lose On Semaglutide?

According to a study published in The New England Journal of Medicine, patients who took Semaglutide lost over the 68-week study, an average of almost 15% of their body weight.

Of course, everyone’s different, so it’s hard to say exactly how quickly you’ll see results with Semaglutide. But, many patients have experienced some weight loss within just a few weeks of starting the medication.

Is Semaglutide Safe To Use For Weight Loss?

Semaglutide is a drug that has been rigorously tested to ensure its safety and efficacy. Although some side effects such as gastrointestinal symptoms may occur, they are generally mild and lessen over time.

How Long Should Semaglutide Be Used For Weight Loss?

The duration of Semaglutide treatment varies depending on individual circumstances, and it is essential to follow your healthcare provider’s guidance. Typically, treatment continues until you achieve your target weight or experience side effects that outweigh the benefits.
