Semaglutide (Ozempic, Rybelsus, Wegovy)

Semaglutide is a type of medication known as a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) analog. It's approved for treating type 2 diabetes in adults, helping to control blood sugar levels when used alongside a healthy diet and exercise. Additionally, semaglutide has been shown to reduce the risk of cardiovascular events like heart attacks and strokes, as well as decrease the chances of death in people with type 2 diabetes.

In an exciting development, a once-weekly injection of semaglutide, called Wegovy, was approved in June 2021 for chronic weight management. It is specifically intended for adults with obesity or those who are overweight and have at least one weight-related condition such as high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol. Wegovy can be an effective tool to support weight loss efforts.

It's important to remember that medications like semaglutide should be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional. They can provide personalized advice and monitor your progress to ensure the best possible outcomes for managing your diabetes or achieving your weight loss goals.
