Why use semaglutide medication for weight loss?Updated 7 months ago

  • Appetite Suppression: Semaglutide appears to reduce appetite, leading to decreased food intake. This effect can contribute to weight loss, as individuals consume fewer calories. 
  • Improved Insulin Sensitivity: By improving insulin sensitivity, semaglutide may help the body utilize glucose more effectively. This can have positive effects on metabolism and contribute to weight loss. 
  • Slowed Gastric Emptying: Semaglutide slows down the rate at which the stomach empties, leading to a feeling of fullness for a longer period. This can help individuals eat smaller portions and reduce overall calorie intake. 
  • Caloric Expenditure: Some research suggests that semaglutide may increase energy expenditure, potentially contributing to weight loss.
