What's Wegovy and How Does it Work?

Wegovy is an approved weight loss medication for overweight and obese adults with various comorbidities. Novo Nordisk produces the drug and has been on the market since 2011.

Suppose your body mass index (BMI) is over 27, and you suffer from high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, high cholesterol, or other diseases afflicting adults above a healthy weight. In that case, Wegovy could be right for you.

Wegovy is a GLP-1 class drug that reduces feelings of hunger and increases feelings of satiety among individuals above a normal BMI. 

While Wegovy can work wonders for your waistline, it isn't for everybody. If you have Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome types 2 (MEN 2), MTC, or a family history of the disease, do not take Wegovy. You will also want to avoid the medication if you have a history of pancreatitis. If you're hypersensitive or negatively react to semaglutide or inactive substances in Wegovy, you should also avoid it.

Semaglutide slows down the rate at which your stomach empties. This keeps you physically fuller for longer than usual. Semaglutide also prevents your body from sugar into your blood as fast as it usually would. That means the medication can help to regulate your blood sugar levels, which can also help you stem cravings and adopt a healthier lifestyle overall.

Wegovy takes advantage of your body's natural chemistry to suppress your hunger. Your body produces a chemical known as GLP-1, which helps to regulate your appetite. Your body must constantly replenish its supply of GLP-1s, which increase and decrease throughout the day. Wegovy mimics GLP-1 and acts as an appetite suppressant, even when your body's natural GLP-1 levels decline. After a meal, your body produces GLP-1. This chemical tells the pancreas to create insulin, which helps to reduce your blood sugar. GLP-1 also travels to your brain and helps suppress your appetite, which makes Wegovy so effective.

Can a Wegovy Prescription Help With Weight Loss?

Wegovy may be effective in weight loss, and users can experience weight loss when the medication is combined with lifestyle changes.

In studies of Wegovy users, those who adopted reduced-calorie diets and increased physical activity lost 15% of their starting body weight.
