Semaglutide is a medication that helps improve blood sugar control in people with type 2 diabetes. It works by activating a hormone called GLP-1, which helps the pancreas produce more insulin and slows down the emptying of the stomach, which can reduce appetite and improve weight control. In a recent study, non-diabetic patients who took Semaglutide lost an average of 33 pounds, and many patients lost 15-20% of their body weight. We have many patients who have lost over 50 pounds in the last 6 months on Semaglutide or Tirzepatide.
