Semaglutide

Semaglutide is an injectable GLP-1 peptide receptor agonist. GLP-1 agonists work by mimicking the effects of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), a hormone produced by the intestines in response to food intake. GLP-1 is known to stimulate insulin secretion from the pancreas, reduce glucagon secretion, and slow down gastric emptying.

In addition to its effects on insulin and glucagon secretion, GLP-1 also acts on the brain to reduce appetite and increase feelings of fullness, leading to a reduction in food intake and weight loss.

It is usually given as an injection once a week. By incorporating Semaglutide into your diet and exercise routine, you can make great strides in your weight loss goals and improve your overall health and well-being.

Tirzepatide vs Semaglutide

  • Both are FDA approved
  • Both are classified as GLP-1 receptor agonists, which means they work by mimicking the effects of a naturally occurring hormone in the body that helps regulate blood sugar and appetite.
  • Both medications have been shown to be very effective in promoting weight loss in clinical trials
  • Tirzepatide is known as a dual-acting peptide, since it is a GLP-1 and a GIP receptor agonist
  • Tirzepatide is a newer medication and has been shown to be more effective in promoting weight loss compared to semaglutide (in clinical trials, patients taking tirzepatide lost on average about twice as much weight as patients taking semaglutide).
