Thursday’s Daily Piece: Semaglutide for Weight Loss in Persons Without Diabetes

I am super excited about this study of once weekly semaglutide (you may recognize the injectable brand of Ozempic) plus lifestyle interventions (changes to eating habits and moving more) in persons without diabetes and with body mass index of 30 or greater for weight loss. Semaglutide works in the satiety center (which controls hunger) in the brain to decrease hunger which works great in combination with changing eating habits and moving more. The results of the study are promising. I hope that semaglutide will be approved for weight loss in persons without diabetes, and this study is a step towards making this approval happen in the future.
