What is this？
While Ozempic (Semaglutide) was approved by Health Canada in 2018 for adults with Type 2 diabetes to help patients manage their blood sugar levels, the medication Wegovy (Semaglutide) was recently approved for chronic weight management in Canada in 2021.

How it works
Semaglutide works by increasing the level of the GLP-1 hormone, which helps the pancreas to produce more insulin. In addition, semaglutide helps to reduce the amount of sugar produced by the liver and delays the emptying of the stomach.
Treatment will include medication in injection or tablet form. The injection is administered once weekly, while the tablet is taken once daily.
