We’ll give you all the info you need on how semaglutide works, the different forms it comes in, what it’s used for, and the positive and negative effects you might experience.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a medicine created to treat Type 2 diabetes that also helps with long-term weight loss. You can find it under different brand names like Ozempic, Wegovy, and Rybelsus. The smart people at Novo Nordisk developed it in 2012 and it got approved in 2017 after clinical trials. It works by improving the function of incretin, a hormone that helps control blood sugar. Basically, it boosts insulin and reduces sugar levels. This has the effect of decreasing appetite and making patients feel fuller for longer.  Ozempic is the most common version and you take it as a subcutaneous injection, while Rybelsus is taken orally and Wegovy is a high-dose injection.

Who should consider taking Semaglutide?

It was primarily developed as an early medication for the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus but with its newly found implications in weight loss, it is now being used as an anti-obesity medication. People who are overweight, and are unable to reduce fat after trying multiple diets and exercise are the perfect candidates for ozempic therapy. As an anti-diabetic medication, it is approved for use in people aged 12 or older with Type 2 diabetes mellitus. Because it is used for the treatment of chronic conditions, patients are required to take it indefinitely.

Recently, Elon Musk credited semaglutide and fasting for his svelte appearance. His tweet got viral and rocketed the magical weight loss drug into the public eye. In addition to him, Mindy Kaling, Oprah, Adele, and Rebel Wilson have been rumored to be benefiting from this wonder drug.

Seeking professional help is important

Semaglutide therapy can be challenging if you’re not fully capacitated. From dose administration to drug monitoring, seeking help from a healthcare professional is important.  Look out for the providers that are strictly telemedicine.  This is because people often have trouble injecting themselves, and consequently, cause multiple needle-prick injuries. Most of the telemedicine providers are out of the State and are unable to provide in person assistance. Crafted Vitality and others are a better choice for most people as they  provide appropriate drug formulations, dosage regimens, instructions, the fastest delivery service, and most importantly a registered nurse for the monitoring dosage adjustments, to provide safe delivery,  and the clinical professional injection of semaglutide.

The fine print

With the reported incidence of weight loss associated with semaglutide use and the least amount of data and research validating the harmful implications of the medication, no doubt it has become the most popular and sought-after medication. 

If you are considering semaglutide, keep a few things in mind. As it is a medication for the treatment of a chronic condition, one might need to take it for an indefinite period of time. Secondly, it is not going to do wonders if you do not pair it up with lifestyle interventions. Start eating healthy; cut off those carbs; and exercise regularly. It is the key to attaining maximum benefits and minimizing the risk of weight gain again. 

As Ozempic and Wegovy are available in parenteral formulations, it comes with injection site reactions and injuries such as rash, bleeding, nerve damage, etc. The best approach is injections performed by a registered nurse or a health professional. There are many vertical experts retailing semaglutide but most of them are telemedicine related and will deliver you the drug. However, Crafted Vitality provides the management of dosages and administration using a registered nurse. It is committed to excellence as far as the quality of drugs, customer satisfaction, and facilities are concerned.

Semaglutide therapy alone is of no use unless supplemented with dietary modifications and physical activity. Cut off all the habits which caused obesity initially and pluck out the root of the problem. If you fail to follow these instructions, the results will be reversed as soon as you stop taking the medication.


No doubt that semaglutide is a wonder drug. However, every drug comes with its own implications. The key point we want you to take away is to always consult a professional before starting a medication and prioritize the providers that offer additional support and guidance. In the Sacramento region, Crafted Vitality is the best and most appropriate option as it comes with additional professional help for case management.
