Semaglutide Q & A

What is Semaglutide? 

Semaglutide is a prescription medication commonly used to treat adults with type 2 diabetes and those struggling with obesity. This medication helps regulate blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin release, decreasing your blood sugar, and slowing down digestion.

How is Semaglutide administered?

Semaglutide is administered once weekly as an injection under the skin of your thigh, stomach area, or upper arm. The providers at Avenel Primary Care will guide you on proper injection techniques, ensuring a comfortable and effective administration.

Who can benefit from Semaglutide? 

Semaglutide is typically prescribed for adults with type 2 diabetes who have not achieved adequate glycemic control with other diabetes medications, exercise, and diet alone. It can also be beneficial for those who need additional management to improve their blood sugar levels.

What are the benefits of Semaglutide?

Semaglutide has demonstrated significant benefits for those with type 2 diabetes, including:


  • Improved blood sugar control: Semaglutide helps lower blood sugar levels and reduces HbA1c levels, a marker of long-term glucose control.
  • Weight loss: Many patients experience weight loss while on Semaglutide, making it a good option for those struggling with obesity or weight management.
  • Cardiovascular benefits: Studies have shown that Semaglutide may reduce the risk of cardiovascular events in patients with diabetes who are at risk for heart disease.


Are there any side effects associated with Semaglutide? 

Like any medication, Semaglutide may cause some side effects. Common side effects include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and abdominal discomfort. These side effects usually improve over time. The team at Avenel Primary Care will monitor your response to the medication and address any concerns you may have.

Is Semaglutide a good option for everyone with type 2 diabetes?  

Semaglutide may not be suitable if you have a history of certain medical conditions or allergies to the medication. Your provider at Avenel Primary Care will conduct a thorough evaluation to determine if Semaglutide is the right treatment option for you.
