What is the Semaglutide Shot?
Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs). GLP-1 RAs work by mimicking the action of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1, which is naturally produced in the body. Semaglutide helps regulate blood sugar levels, reduce appetite, and promote weight loss. And reduces the risk of heart disease, hypertension, stroke, and diabetes.
