Semaglutide works to lower high blood sugar by increasing the amount of insulin that is released, lowering the amount of glucagon released, and by delaying gastric emptying. As a GLP-1 agonist, semaglutide also controls appetite and thus helps you to reduce the amount of food intake. Semaglutide is a medication for chronic weight management used in conjunction with diet and exercise. When used in conjunction with lifestyle changes, this weight loss drug tool can be effective in helping patients lose excess weight.
