ABOUT ELITE’S SEMAGLUTIDE PROGRAM
Semaglutide is a glucagon like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist, also referred to as an incretin mimetic. GLP-1 agonists were initially developed to improve glycemic control in type 2 diabetes as an adjunct to diet and exercise. It works to enhance the growth of beta cells in the pancreas, which are sites of insulin production. Semaglutide will delay gastric emptying by reducing glucagon secretion in a glucose-dependent manner. The delay in gastric empyting can reduce appetite, improve control of eating, and reduce food cravings. Semaglutide offers glycemic control with improvement to HbA1c levels, moderate weight loss and a significant reduction in risk of major adverse cardiac.
