Semaglutide Q&A

What is semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a peptide, a short chain of amino acids. While there are a multitude of peptides, each with its own remarkable abilities, semaglutide stimulates the pancreas to create more insulin. 

Increased insulin production leaves you better able to regulate your blood sugar, so you burn calories faster and experience fewer hunger pangs. Semaglutide has emerged for its ability to help with weight loss even when other approaches have failed. 

Who needs semaglutide?

Semaglutide, under the brand name Ozempic®, is FDA-approved for patients who have Type 2 diabetes. Its approved uses include lowering blood sugar levels (alongside diet and exercise) and reducing the risk of strokes, heart attacks, and death. 


While the approved uses of Ozempic don’t include weight loss, many people with Type 2 diabetes who use the drug lose a significant amount of weight. That was one reason for the FDA approval of Wegovy®, which is a semaglutide that’s indicated specifically for weight loss. 

Qualifying for Ozempic

You may qualify for Ozempic if you have Type 2 diabetes (with or without weight difficulties).

Qualifying for Wegovy

You may qualify for Wegovy if you have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher and aren’t able to lose weight with diet and exercise. Or, Wegovy might be right for you if you have a BMI of 27-29 and also have health problems due to your weight, for example, Type 2 diabetes.

How does semaglutide treatment work?

Ageless Regenerative Medical  takes a comprehensive approach to bodywide health, which incorporates weight management. The team works hand-in-hand with you to create an eating plan, exercise routine, and general health care plan that works for you. 

You see the team regularly for check-ins while taking semaglutide, but you administer the injections at home. The weekly Injections go into the skin of the abdomen, top part of the thigh, or upper arm. It’s best to rotate injection sites, never using the same one two weeks in a row. 

Studies show that semaglutide leads to significant weight reduction and improved blood sugar management when added to a healthy lifestyle. It can make your journey easier, so why wait to learn more? Call Innovate Medical Group or click the online appointment feature now.
