What is Semaglutide?
Known under the brand names Ozempic, Rybelsus and Wegovy, Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist. Semaglutide mimics hormones in the body that are responsible for increasing insulin secretion and was originally developed as a medication to treat type 2 Diabetes. However, it has gained huge popularity for its weight-loss benefits because it suppresses appetite in the brain.
Why is Semaglutide so expensive?
Many insurances still will not cover the prescription, brand name or generic, for weight loss because it was not developed to “treat” obesity. This makes it very costly out-of-pocket even though the results have proved it is effective!
