Who would be a good candidate for Semaglutide?
- How does it work? Semaglutide imitates a human hormone produced naturally by the gut, pancreas, and nervous system. The hormone targets areas of the brain that manages appetite, create a feeling of fullness, and enhance insulin production.
- It helps by: Slowing down stomach emptying so that after eating, you feel full longer, Suppresses appetite and food cravings (on average patients eat ~30% less) and, Lowers and stabilizes blood glucose levels (without making glucose levels too low like insulin)
