Weight Loss Treatment
Semaglutide, a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist, is approved to treat type 2 diabetes, with subcutaneous injection doses of 0.25, 0.5, and 1 mg administered once weekly and oral doses of 3, 7, and 14 mg administered once daily. In June 2021, the FDA approved subcutaneous semaglutide for long-term weight management, with higher doses of 1.7 and 2.4 mg once weekly. The Semaglutide Treatment Effect in People With Obesity (STEP) trials have shown the efficacy of semaglutide for the treatment of obesity.
In trials, patients receiving semaglutide, 2.4 mg, lost a mean of 6% of their weight by week 12 and 12% of their weight by week 28.
