What are GLP-1 agonists?

These medications were originally developed for the treatment of diabetes. More recently though, it has also shown promising results in aiding weight loss. It belongs to a class of drugs called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs) which help decrease the appetite and reduce blood sugar levels.

How Do They Promote Weight Loss?

GLP-1 agonists helps with weight loss through a variety of mechanisms.  It acts on the brain to reduce your appetite, making you feel fuller with smaller portion sizes.  It also slows down the emptying of the stomach, which also helps you to need less food intake to feel satisfied.  These medications have been shown to improve insulin sensitivity and reduce insulin resistance, which may help with weight loss in individuals with insulin resistance or type 2 diabetes.

Benefits of a GLP-1 Agonist for Weight Loss:

1. Effective Weight Loss: Clinical trials have demonstrated that GLP-1 agonists can lead to significant weight loss when used as part of a comprehensive weight management plan.

2. Improved Glycemic Control: For individuals with type 2 diabetes, these medications can help improve blood sugar control, leading to better overall health outcomes.

3. Reduced Risk Factors: Weight loss achieved through treatment can help reduce the risk of obesity-related complications such as heart disease, high blood pressure, and certain types of cancer.

4. Sustainable Approach: When used in conjunction with a healthy diet and regular exercise, this treatment plan can promote sustainable weight loss and help individuals maintain their progress over time.

Possible Side Effects:

As with any medication, GLP-1 agonists may cause side effects. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. Typically these are not difficult to manage and will be reduced with time.  It is always important to notify your healthcare provider of any side effects that you may be experiencing.   It is important to discuss potential side effects and any pre-existing medical conditions with your healthcare provider before starting any new medication.
