Obesity is a complex and chronic disease and has a wide array of complications, including hypertension, hypercholesteremia, type 2 diabetes, cardiovascular disease, and some cancers. Lifestyle interventions, comprising physical activity, reduced calorie diets, and behavioral therapy, have been the principal pillars in the management of obesity.
What is Semaglutide?
Semaglutide blocks glucagon release, postpones gastric clearing, reduces energy intake, stimulates satiety, and reduces hunger and appetite. Semaglutide was initially approved for the management of type 2 diabetes mellitus. The observation that the GLP-1 reduced body weight prompted its expansion to the treatment of obesity.
