Semaglutide Compounded Apple Valley, CA

Introduction to Semaglutide

Semaglutide is an injectable prescription medication used to improve blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. It is also approved for chronic weight management in adults with obesity or overweight with at least one weight-related condition.

Semaglutide works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) that is released naturally by the body after eating. It helps the pancreas release the right amount of insulin when blood sugar levels are high. It also slows digestion and decreases appetite.

Compounded semaglutide refers to semaglutide that has been custom-made by a specialty pharmacy to meet individual dosing needs. This allows more flexibility in dosing than manufactured semaglutide products.
