The Medication Semaglutide, Everyone is Talking about it!

Not too long ago I was sitting at Panera Bread and overheard two men talking about a medication that one of the healthcare providers put him on and he was having successfull weight loss and feeling great! Well he was talking about Semaglutide.

Semaglutide, a GLP-1 medication, is a medication initially approved by the FDA for type 2 Diabetics. Semaglutide works by activating GLP-1 receptors in the pancreas, enhancing the release of insulin and reducing the release of glucagon. The combination of these actions leads to glucose homeostasis, which triggers the burning of fat storage for energy.

Clinical studies have shown a 15% weight loss in obese patients and is now FDA approved for Weightloss under the name of Wegovy without coverage from insurance companies you can expect a price tag of $1,600 a month. At RejuvNP when obtain compounded Semaglutide for much, much less....its proved its success, having even the owner of RejuvNP, Laura lose weigh.

So how does this Weight loss wonder drug work?

By reducing the release of glucagon fat is burned instead, resulting in weightloss. This medication is injected and the dose increases over a period of time. Eventually a patient will be tapered off of the medication and RejuvNP helps the patient maintain and successfully keep of the weight. Some patients experience nausea and vomiting (24% and 44% respectively), as well as other GI symptoms. More serious conditions include: gallstones & pancreatitis.

It is important to go to a trained healthcare provider who properly screens, tests and providers many online sites may be a 'Medication Mill'. There pricing may be enticing but there may be a lack in medication 'quality', patient support and knowledge of symptom treatment.
