The Science Behind Semaglutide for Weight Loss

Excited,Young,Fit,Woman,Losing,Weight,And,Wearing,Old,Too Many people experience a boost in body confidence when they successfully lose weight. However, weight loss can become quite challenging for individuals who have stubborn fat that seems to resist traditional weight loss methods.

At Women’s Wellness Institute of Dallas, we offer a groundbreaking weight loss treatment with semaglutide, designed to help women of all shapes, sizes, and ages achieve their goals.

What Is the Science Behind Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a peptide that aids in weight loss by replicating the effects of glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1). GLP-1, a hormone released in the gut after eating, triggers the body to produce insulin and reduce blood sugar levels. By binding to the GLP-1 receptor and stimulating insulin production, semaglutide effectively mimics the actions of GLP-1.

Here are some areas where this can be beneficial:

  • Curbing your appetite and reducing cravings
  • Decreasing your preference for fatty foods
  • Slowing down digestion so you feel fuller after eating

Does Semaglutide Work for Weight Loss?

A recent study in 2022 found that a significant majority of participants who took semaglutide experienced a notable reduction in their baseline weight compared to those who were given a placebo. In comparison to the placebo, semaglutide increased the likelihood that individuals would lose 10%,15%, or 20% of their starting weight.

Other studies have also found comparable findings:

  • After 68 weeks, a significant number of participants who took semaglutide experienced substantial weight loss. Approximately half of the participants lost 15% of their body weight, while nearly a third achieved an impressive 20% weight loss.
  • On average, individuals who receive weekly semaglutide injections experience a weight loss of approximately 15 pounds after three months.
  • Individuals who use semaglutide injections once weekly for six months typically have a weight loss of approximately 27 pounds.
  • During extensive clinical trials, it was observed that patients who were administered 2.4 mg of semaglutide experienced a significant reduction in weight. By week 12, they lost an average of 6% of their weight; by week 28, the weight loss increased to 12%.
