Ozempic (semaglutide) GLP-1 diabetes drug from Novo Nordisk can reduce obesity and body fat levels


An independent research funded by Novo Nordisk at the University of Leeds shows significant weight loss among clinically obese individuals with Ozempic (semaglutide). This drug is similar to the naturally-occurring hormone GLP-1 in the body, which targets sensory receptors of appetite control mechanism (in the hypothalamus portion of the brain), to reduce hunger and food cravings. Novo Nordisk is the manufacturer of semaglutide under the brand name Ozempic.

Ozempic (semaglutide) diabetes drug can reduce hunger, food craving, obesity, body fat.

A study was conducted with a weekly dose of Ozempic on 28 obese people with a body mass index (BMI) between 30 and 45 kg/m2. At the end of the 12-week study, the study found an average 24 percent reduction in daily energy intake of the participants. Ozempic has demonstrated a better control over appetite. People under this treatment had eaten in small amounts and the preference to foods with high-fat content has been reduced. The participants lost about five kg (11 lbs) of body fat over a period of 12 weeks with Ozempic.

Once a week, Ozempic injection costs about $676 per prescription. The oral form of the drug is under development. This drug is going to compete with other GLP-1 drugs - dulaglutide from Trulicity and bydureon from AstraZeneca. FDA has approved Ozempic (semaglutide) from Novo Nordisk on December 5, 2017.

Radical "hot water bottle" treatment for patients with type 2 diabetes could reduce insulin injections, medical costs and drug usage


Doctors at the London hospital are conducting a radical treatment procedure for patients with type 2 diabetes (T2D) to prevent further worsening of the blood sugar (glucose) levels, reduce medical expenses and to reduce the need for medicines (insulin injection and drugs). The first procedure was conducted at the University College Hospital (UCH), Bloomsbury, London, United Kingdom.

Hot water bottle treatment for type 2 diabetes could reduce medical expenses for insulin injection (drugs).

This procedure was not intended to cure (or prevent) type 2 diabetes (T2D). This procedure takes less than 60. This procedure involves brief insertion of a tiny hot water bottle into the upper intestine via the mouth, stomach and duodenum. The tissue lining the duodenum is removed with the hot water balloon (90°C) causing the release of insulin to control blood sugar levels.
