What is Ozempic

Ozempic is an FDA-approved prescription medication designed to improve blood sugar levels for adults with type 2 diabetes. The active ingredient, semaglutide, is a GLP-1 receptor agonist that works by activating the GLP-1 receptors throughout the body and boosting the release of insulin from the pancreas. This action helps to improve blood glucose levels and lower hemoglobin A1C levels over time, while also lowering the risk of cardiovascular events such as stroke or heart attack for those with known heart disease. In addition to providing better glucose control, Ozempic has been shown in clinical trials to lead to significant weight loss and lower blood pressure – an additional benefit for those struggling with their weight management.
