Semaglutide, also known as Ozempic, is the latest arrival in a successful weight loss aid, which does not require any special diet or sacrifice to see results. Semaglutide is an FDA-approved once-weekly injection used for weight loss. Lab work within the last 3 months is required. It is a glucagon-like peptide receptor antagonist which improves glycemic control in the pancreas. It will delay gastric emptying by reducing glucagon secretion which reduces appetite, lowers sugar cravings and improves overall ability to control eating habits. Studies have shown an average of 15% weight loss over 1 year of taking the medication.
