What is a GLP-1?

Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is a physiological hormone that has multiple actions on glucose, mediated by the GLP-1 receptors. Blocking glucagon secretion: Glucagon is a hormone your body uses to raise your blood sugar levels when necessary. So, GLP-1 prevents more glucose from going into your bloodstream. Slowing stomach emptying: Slower digestion means that your body releases less glucose (sugar) from the food you eat into your bloodstream.

How does GLP-1 help with weight loss? 

  1. Increased insulin production
  2. Reduced glucagon release
  3. Reduced appetite
  4. Delayed gastric emptying

Combined with a healthy lifestyle.

GLP-1s require a prescription from your healthcare provider. First, your healthcare provider will determine if you meet the criteria. Adults who have a BMI index of 30 kg/m^2 or higher (obesity) or 27 kg/m^2 or greater (overweight) with at least one weight-related health problem (e.g., hypertension, type 2 diabetes mellitus, or dyslipidemia) may benefit from GLP-1 injections combined with physical activity and a reduced calorie diet.

Along with prescribing a GLP-1, your healthcare provider will help you lose weight through lifestyle changes. Your healthcare provider will help you determine what diet, exercise, and medications are best for you. GLP-1s aren’t safe for everyone and can interfere with other medications, so talk to your healthcare provider before taking them.
