WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE NEW WEIGHT LOSS DRUG “WEGOVY”
What is it? Does it work for weight loss?
Wegovy is the most recent weight loss medication that has been approved by the FDA. The generic name for this medication is Semaglutide. The medicine has been approved for diabetes treatment since 2017, is safe and effective, and has recently been approved at a higher dose for a new use - the treatment of obesity.
After a long absence due to manufacturing issues, Wegovy is once again available.
If you have commercial health insurance coverage, call the number on the back of your card to see if you are covered for "Wegovy".
Locally, employees at WWD Hospital, HCA Hospitals, BILC Hospitals, and Liberty Mutual should be covered for medical weight loss.
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT MOUNJARO.
There’s a new option on the market for patients seeking treatment with a GLP-1-type drug: Eli Lilly’s much-anticipated Mounjaro™ (trizepatide) was approved by the FDA in May 2022 for those with type 2 diabetes.
Mounjaro™ is the first drug of its kind that mimics the effects of two incretin hormones involved in blood glucose control: Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP).
According to a press release published by Eli Lilly, GIP is a hormone that may complement the effects of GLP-1 receptor agonists. In preclinical models, GIP has been shown to decrease food intake and improve blood glucose metabolism, therefore resulting in weight reductions, and when combined with GLP-1 receptor agonism, may result in greater effects on markers of metabolic dysregulation such as body weight, glucose and lipids.” The recommended starting dosage of Mounjaro™ is 2.5 mg. After four weeks, doses may be increased in 2.5 mg increments, as tolerated, up to a maximum of 15 mg once weekly. Doses are set and monitored by a healthcare provider and may be adjusted to help patients meet their blood sugar, weight loss, and metabolic health goals.
GLP-1 type mediations, including Mounjaro™, work only when taken while also implementing lifestyle changes (like working on your sleep, exercise, and eating habits).
