Semaglutide is a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called incretin mimetics. Incretins are naturally occurring hormones that help to regulate blood sugar levels. Semaglutide works by mimicking the effects of incretins, which helps to increase insulin production and decrease glucagon production. This helps to lower blood sugar levels.
Semaglutide is FDA-approved for two different uses:
Treatment of type 2 diabetes: Semaglutide is used along with diet and exercise to help control blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes.
