About Semaglutide (Ozempic)
Ozempic is a brand name for semaglutide, a prescription medicine that belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. Ozempic is used to treat type 2 diabetes and to lower the risk of heart problems in people with type 2 diabetes and heart disease. Ozempic is injected under the skin once a week.
How can Semaglutide (Ozempic) help you lose weight?
Semaglutide (Ozempic) can also help you lose weight if you are overweight or obese, especially if you have diabetes or other health problems related to your weight. Semaglutide (Ozempic) works by mimicking the action of a natural hormone called GLP-1, which is released by the gut after eating. GLP-1 helps to lower blood sugar levels by stimulating the pancreas to produce more insulin, reducing the amount of glucose released by the liver, and slowing down the emptying of the stomach. Semaglutide (Ozempic) also helps to reduce appetite and weight by making you feel full longer.
What are the benefits of Semaglutide (Ozempic) for weight loss?
Semaglutide (Ozempic) can help you achieve significant and sustained weight loss that can improve your health and quality of life. According to a clinical trial published in the New England Journal of Medicine¹, people who took Semaglutide (Ozempic) for 68 weeks lost an average of 14.9% of their body weight, compared to 2.4% for those who took a placebo. Semaglutide (Ozempic) also helped people lose more than 10% or 15% of their body weight, which are recommended goals for people with many complications of overweight and obesity, such as prediabetes, hypertension, and obstructive sleep apnea¹.
