Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist that got FDA approval for weight loss in 2014. It is normally a peptide that is released by our intestine every time we eat to help regulate gastric emptying, insulin secretion and satiety.
It was first discovered in the venom of the Gila Monster Lizard which can go months without eating and ten years later it has completely revolutionized the weight loss world. Find out how it works, risks, benefits, contraindications and costs.
