When it comes to weight loss, there are many options available on the market. Two popular options that people often compare are Semaglutide and Ozempic. Both are injectable medications that are used to help people lose weight, but they work in slightly different ways. Given the overwhelming popularity surrounding these new treatments, and the fact that we at Olivera Weight Loss are now proudly offering Semaglutide to our patients, we thought it may be helpful to shed some light on the differences between the two. After all, knowledge is power!

What Is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide works by mimicking the effects of a hormone in the body called GLP-1, which helps to regulate blood sugar levels and reduce appetite. By taking Semaglutide, people may find that they feel less hungry, eat less food, and lose weight as a result.

What is Ozempic?

Ozempic, on the other hand, is a medication that is primarily used to treat type 2 diabetes. However, it has also been shown to be effective for weight loss in people who are overweight or obese. It works by mimicking the effects of GLP-1, but it is FDA approved for treatment of Type 2 Diabetes instead of weight loss.

How Do They Differ?

So, what’s the difference between the two? The main difference is that Semaglutide is FDA approved for weight loss, whereas Ozempic is approved for diabetes but also helps with weight loss as a side effect. Ozepmic is only prescribed and covered by insurance if you have a Type 2 Diabetes diagnosis. Additionally, Semaglutide is available in higher doses than Ozempic, which means that it may be more effective for weight loss in some people.

If you’re considering taking either of these, it’s important to speak to a healthcare professional first. Both medications can have side effects, and they may not be suitable for everyone.
