Before its introduction as a highly effective long-term weight management solution, semaglutide (Ozempic) was used to treat type 2 diabetes. Physicians observed that while Ozempic increased insulin production and reduced blood sugar levels, it also produced significant weight loss results. The makers of Ozempic, Novo Nordisk, conducted numerous clinical studies before offering their breakthrough weight loss medication called Wegovy, now FDA-approved for weight management.
Semaglutide is ideal for individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater or adults with a BMI of 27 and at least one complication related to body weight, such as hypertension, insulin resistance, high cholesterol, or heart disease.
