Semaglutide Peptide

Semaglutide Peptide - HRT

Semaglutide is an artificial analogue of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1). GLP-1 is a peptide hormone produced by the body that has thirty amino acids. It helps stimulate insulin gene transcription, hence improving insulin production, lowering blood sugar levels, and protecting pancreatic beta cells. 

It is mainly used to treat type 2 diabetes, while it has also demonstrated promise in the control of obesity. You can inject semaglutide subcutaneously or take it orally. Learn more about Semaglutide Peptide from us at Hormone Replacement Therapy LA.

Which semaglutide is best for weight loss?

Wegovy, or semaglutide 2.4, is the only weight-loss medicine approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for weight management. Another brand of semaglutide, Ozempic, is mostly used to treat type 2 diabetes, but it can also be taken off-label to help overweight patients lose weight and alleviate conditions like high blood pressure. 

What is semaglutide peptide good for?

Diabetes type 2: 

Semaglutide helps patients with type 2 diabetes better control their blood sugar levels. It mimics the function of GLP-1, a hormone that is present in the body naturally and aids with blood glucose regulation.

Weight Loss:

In individuals who are obese or overweight, semaglutide is also used to regulate weight. It modifies food preference by reducing the desire for high-fat and high-glycemic foods, reduces cravings, suppresses appetite, and encourages fullness by slowing digestion. 

Cardiovascular Health:

In patients with type 2 diabetes who also have heart disease, semaglutide may lower their chance of experiencing future cardiovascular events, such as a heart attack or stroke.

How does Semaglutide peptide differ from other medications used for similar conditions?

Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS): 

Insulin resistance is a typical sign of PCOS in individuals, and it can result in obesity. Semaglutide can assist in controlling weight and PCOS symptoms like acne and irregular periods. It helps in the management of PCOS because of its capacity to reduce insulin resistance.

Metabolic syndrome: 

Also referred to as insulin resistance syndrome, this group of illnesses raises the risk of heart attacks, strokes, and diabetes. Semaglutide lowers the risk of diabetes and heart disease, which helps with weight loss and improves metabolic syndrome.

Certain Cancers:

Scientists are examining the relationship between insulin resistance and particular diseases (including endometrial, breast, and colon cancer). The possibility for semaglutide to increase insulin resistance may lower the risk of some cancer types. 

Alzheimer’s Disease Prevention:

A study discovered a link between type 2 diabetes and dementia in all its manifestations. Because of its effect on insulin resistance, semalglutide may be used as a prophylactic medication for Alzheimer’s disease.

Researched backed evidences

The diabetic drug oral semaglutide has demonstrated remarkable effects in reducing weight and HbA1c, a gauge of average blood sugar levels over time. Oral semaglutide is superior to other popular diabetic drugs such as sitagliptin, empagliflozin, and liraglutide in lowering weight and HbA1c levels [1].

Oral semaglutide is superior to other popular diabetic drugs such as sitagliptin, empagliflozin, and liraglutide in lowering weight and HbA1c levels [2].

Trials showed that Ozempic, when compared to a fake treatment, helped lower blood sugar levels in patients with type 2 diabetes. It was generally well-tolerated, and most patients experienced improvements in their condition [3].

In a clinical trial, when Wegovy was administered in conjunction with diet and exercise, participants lost an average of 5-20% of their body weight over 68 weeks [4].
