How Does Semaglutide Work?

How Does Semaglutide Work?

Semaglutide has established itself as a cutting-edge option in the realm of weight management and obesity treatment, revolutionizing the standard methods of tackling weight loss. Initially developed for diabetes care, its effectiveness as a weight control medication has forged new opportunities for those in search of effective and sustainable weight management strategies. As Semaglutide’s ability to assist in achieving weight goals gains widespread recognition across the nation, there is a growing intrigue surrounding its operational mechanisms and how it effectively aids in weight loss.

How Does Semaglutide Work

Semaglutide, as a GLP-1 receptor agonist, has specific effects on various organs, including the small intestine, stomach, pancreas, and brain. Here’s a detailed look at how it works on each of these organs:

Small Intestine:

  • Incretin Effect: Semaglutide enhances the incretin effect, which involves the release of hormones in response to food intake. In the small intestine, it increases the secretion of incretin hormones (like GLP-1) in response to nutrient ingestion.
  • Nutrient Absorption: By enhancing the incretin effect, semaglutide may indirectly influence how nutrients are absorbed in the small intestine, although its primary effect is more related to hormone secretion than direct absorption processes.

Stomach:

  • Gastric Emptying: Semaglutide slows gastric emptying, meaning the process by which food moves from the stomach to the small intestine is delayed. This contributes to prolonged feelings of fullness and can help reduce overall food intake, aiding in weight loss or management in obesity treatment.
  • Appetite Regulation: The delay in gastric emptying also has an impact on appetite signals, which are partly regulated by how quickly the stomach empties its contents.

Pancreas:

  • Insulin Secretion: Semaglutide stimulates the beta cells in the pancreas to produce more insulin in response to high blood glucose levels. This helps in reducing the blood sugar levels in diabetes patients.
  • Glucagon Suppression: It also inhibits the alpha cells in the pancreas from secreting glucagon when blood sugar levels are low. Since glucagon typically increases blood sugar levels, its suppression by semaglutide helps in maintaining a more stable blood glucose level.

Brain:

  • Appetite Control: Semaglutide affects the brain’s appetite centers, leading to reduced hunger and calorie intake. This action is beneficial for weight management in obesity.
  • Satiety Signals: It enhances satiety signals in the brain, contributing to the feeling of fullness and aiding in controlling portion sizes and reducing overall food intake.

DOUG S.

I came to the clinic already knowing that I had testosterone levels at the very bottom of the acceptable limits for men. After consulting with Dr. Brown and going through his questions he picked up on several things that I considered was just a part of aging. Those things turned out to be not part of aging but the Thyroid not functioning as well as it should. After doing extensive blood work and getting real world information I am on a path to feeling great and being active again.

Doctor Brown is an amazing doctor. He was able to give me answers to fix my health that other doctors had no clue what to do. He is very personable and genuinely cares about his patients. The staff is amazing as well very personable and make you feel welcome. If I could give 100 stars I would.

I have been a patient of Dr. Frederick Brown’s for several years. After my first visit I remember telling my girlfriend that I felt like I hit the jackpot in finding such a caring & compassionate doctor. The individualized care and treatment is like nothing I’ve ever found with previous doctors. His staff also reflect his personal care. I am always telling anyone who is dealing with menopause to go see Dr. Brown and try the Biote identical injectable pellet. It is hands down the only way to deal with pre-menopause & menopause. It has changed my life for the better!

KELECHI R.

Dr. Brown’s “Kit Glove” approach to my several years of lower back pain which has severely affected my fast paced lifestyle has been quite commendable. With a driven personality to “never quit”, it’s quite rare to find a Medical practitioner that adopts the same mindset. His staff has been quite a gem as well. I look forward to continuing on the treatments until we get to a resolve.

Dr. Brown provides excellent care with the support of a first class staff which succeeds in making customer service a priority. I’ve been a patient for years and have enjoyed interacting with everyone. Their office is beautiful and has the very relaxing “feel” of a high-end spa. Dr. Brown, along with Maria and Livy especially, have been very accommodating and genuinely concerned about offering the best care possible to keep me feeling and looking my very best!
