How does semaglutide work?

Semaglutide for weight loss works by reducing appetite and increasing feelings of fullness. It mimics the activity of GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), a hormone naturally released by your gut in response to food. GLP-1 helps regulate appetite and blood sugar levels in the body.
