Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), an incretin hormone that plays a role in your appetite and digestion. Incretins (hormones released by your digestive tract) are sent out by your body after you’ve eaten a meal. They help lower your blood sugar by triggering insulin release and blocking sugar production. They also slow down how quickly food leaves your stomach (called gastric emptying) and this helps prolong satiety and reduces food cravings. The result of these actions causes you to ‘feel full’, lowering your appetite and causing you to lose weight.

WARNING: You should not use semaglutide if you are allergic to it, or if you have: multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2; or a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma. Not for use during pregnancy or when breastfeeding.
