Semaglutide is a medication that serves dual purposes—it is used for both managing type 2 diabetes and assisting in weight loss. Here's a breakdown:


  • Purpose: Semaglutide is prescribed for both type 2 diabetes management and weight loss.

  • Mechanism of Action for Diabetes: It mimics a natural hormone in the body (GLP-1), helping regulate blood sugar levels. This is crucial for individuals with type 2 diabetes.

  • Mechanism of Action for Weight Loss: Semaglutide also affects appetite control and food intake, making it useful for supporting weight loss efforts.

  • Administration: The medication is typically administered as a weekly injection, usually under the skin.


Semaglutide's dual action makes it a versatile option for individuals dealing with both type 2 diabetes and the goal of weight loss. Always follow your healthcare provider's guidance regarding its usage.
