Weight Loss with Wegovy
Wegovy is extremely beneficial in not only helping users to lose weight, but it also helps them to keep the weight off. Wegovy works by mimicking a hormone called GLP-1, otherwise known as glucagon-like peptide-1. GLP-1 targets the specific areas of the brain that regulate our food intake and appetite. During a study ran on Wegovy’s impact, individuals who received Wegovy injections lost an average of 12.4% more of their initial body weight compared to those who received the placebo injection. Wegovy is most beneficial when used in combination with increased physical activity as well as a reduction in your daily caloric intake.
Similar to how weight loss helps improve your blood pressure, it also helps to lower blood sugar levels. This is because when you weigh less, the body’s pancreas is better able to keep up with the body’s need for insulin. In some cases, weight loss even helped to contribute to the elimination of diabetes because the body’s blood sugar was restored to a normal level.
Ideal Wegovy candidates should also possess at least one health condition related to weight. These can include high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, or high cholesterol, for example. A licensed healthcare professional can help determine if Wegovy™ is right for you.
