As little as a 5-10% decrease in body weight can improve insulin action, decrease fasting glucose concentrations, and reduce the need for some diabetes medications. Overweight individuals who lose as little as 10-15 pounds and exercise at least 30 minutes a day five times a week can reduce their risk of developing diabetes by 60%. Remember, exercise does not have to be strenuous and can be in keeping with your age and health limitations.

The FDA has approved three Semaglutide products. The products prompt the body to produce more insulin, which reduces blood glucose (sugar). It also interacts with the parts of the brain that reduce appetite and signal a feeling of fullness.

What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide belongs to a class of medications known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. It mimics the GLP-1 hormone that is released in the gastrointestinal tract in response to eating. One role of GLP-1 is to prompt the body to produce more insulin, which reduces blood glucose (sugar). GLP-1 in higher amounts also interacts with the parts of the brain that reduce appetite and signal a feeling of fullness.

The three FDA-approved Semaglutide products include Ozempic injections and Rybelsus tablets for those with type 2 diabetes. Ozempic also reduces the risk of heart attack, stroke, or death in adults with type 2 diabetes and heart disease. A qualified medical provider can also prescribe a Wegovy injection. It is approved by the FDA to help adults and children aged 12 years and older with obesity or some adults with excess weight (overweight), who also have weight-related medical problems, to lose weight and keep the weight off, in addition to diet and exercise.

What is the relationship between diabetes and weight loss?

Obesity is a major risk factor for developing insulin resistance. And insulin resistance is a big step toward developing Type 2 diabetes. It’s also a major obstacle to achieving long-term blood sugar control. But weight loss can be an effective antidote — with one study showing that losing 16% of your excess pounds can put diabetes into remission.

Staying at a healthy weight is also a worthy goal if you have Type 1 diabetes. But people with Type 1 diabetes can’t make insulin and need to take an injectable version. In turn, taking insulin can lead to weight gain as can eating extra carbs to stabilize low blood sugars so additional measures are needed.
