SEMAGLUTIDE (Glucagon-Like Peptide-1 (GLP-1))
Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists, which are used to treat type 2 diabetes. It works by mimicking the effects of a hormone called GLP-1, which is naturally produced by the body in response to food intake, and helps to regulate blood sugar levels by increasing insulin secretion, slowing down stomach emptying, and reducing appetite. Semaglutide is administered as an injection once a week and can be used alone or in combination with other diabetes medications, depending on the individual’s needs.
