Semaglutide Weight Loss Big Spring, TX

Introduction to Semaglutide

Semaglutide is an injectable prescription medication originally approved for treating type 2 diabetes. It has recently been approved for chronic weight management in adults with obesity or overweight.

Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that targets areas of the brain that regulate appetite and food intake. It helps you feel fuller faster so you eat less and lose weight.
