What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide, available under the brand names Ozempic® and Wegovy®, is a cutting-edge medication approved by the FDA in 2021. It is part of the GLP-1 receptor agonists class, specifically targeting and activating GLP-1 receptors. This medication helps regulate blood sugar levels and suppress appetite, making it effective for managing type 2 diabetes and promoting weight loss.

It's important to always use weight loss medications under the supervision of a healthcare professional. Combining medication with healthy habits like diet and exercise is key to achieving and maintaining your wellness goals.

How is Semaglutide administered?

Semaglutide is available in two convenient formulations: once-weekly subcutaneous injections and daily oral tablets. This flexibility allows patients to choose the method that best fits their lifestyle and treatment preferences. The healthcare professionals at Physicians Weight Loss Centers will guide you in selecting the best option and supervise its administration to ensure optimal results.

What are the advantages of Semaglutide?


Adequate blood sugar control

Semaglutide effectively regulates blood sugar levels by mimicking the action of GLP-1, which is beneficial for individuals with type 2 diabetes.


Weight loss

One of the significant benefits of Semaglutide is its ability to promote weight loss. This is particularly advantageous for individuals with obesity or those looking to manage their weight alongside diabetes. By suppressing appetite and supporting lifestyle modifications, Semaglutide aids in achieving sustainable weight loss.


Cardiovascular benefits

Similar to Tirzepatide, Semaglutide has demonstrated cardiovascular benefits in clinical trials, reducing the risk of major heart-related complications.


Flexible dosing options

With both once-weekly injectable and daily oral formulations available, Semaglutide provides flexibility in treatment administration. This variety allows patients to choose the most convenient and comfortable option for their needs.


Potential for multifaceted treatment

Semaglutide holds promise for addressing various metabolic and non-metabolic conditions beyond diabetes and obesity, potentially benefiting individuals with conditions like NAFLD and PCOS.

What are the differences between Semaglutide and Tirzepatide?

While both Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are GLP-1 receptor agonists, Semaglutide targets only the GLP-1 receptors, whereas Tirzepatide acts as a dual agonist, targeting both GLP-1 and glucagon receptors. This dual action may offer additional benefits in glucose regulation and appetite suppression.

Semaglutide offers more flexibility with its once-weekly injectable and daily oral formulations, compared to Tirzepatide's exclusively once-weekly injections. This variety can be advantageous for patients seeking more personalized treatment options.

Both medications effectively manage type 2 diabetes and promote weight loss. However, their unique mechanisms and dosing options might make one more suitable than the other based on individual health needs and lifestyle preferences. A thorough medical evaluation will help determine the best option for each patient.
