Weight Loss Shots – Semaglutide ( Wegovy & Ozempic) Available Now – Northville Novi Family Medicine – Dr. Victoria Dooley MD

Semaglutide is a medication used to treat type 2 diabetes and, more recently, obesity. It belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. Semaglutide works by mimicking the action of a hormone called GLP-1, which helps regulate blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin release, reducing glucagon secretion, and slowing down gastric emptying.

Wegovy is the brand name for semaglutide when used specifically for weight management in adults with obesity or overweight conditions. It’s administered as a subcutaneous injection once weekly.

Ozempic is another brand name for semaglutide, primarily indicated for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It’s also administered as a subcutaneous injection, typically once weekly.

Both medications have been shown to be effective in lowering blood sugar levels in people with diabetes and promoting weight loss in people with obesity or overweight conditions. However, they are prescribed at different doses and for different purposes, so it’s essential to use them only as directed by a healthcare professional.
