GLP-1 Medication Information
A class of type 2 diabetes medications not only improves blood sugar control but may also result in weight loss. This class of medications is known as glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) agonists.
The sodium glucose cotransporter 2 (SGLT-2) inhibitors are a second class of drugs that may result in weight loss and improved blood sugar control. Canagliflozin (Invokana), ertugliflozin (Steglatro), dapagliflozin (Farxiga), and empagliflozin are examples (Jardiance).
Weight loss can vary depending on the GLP-1 drug used and the dosage. According to research, using liraglutide can result in a weight loss of 10.5 to 15.8 pounds (4.8 to 7.2 kilograms, or kg). According to studies, people who used semaglutide and made lifestyle changes lost about 33.7 pounds (15.3 kilograms) compared to 5.7 pounds (2.6 kilograms) in those who did not use the drug.
Diabetes drugs in the GLP-1 agonist class are typically administered as a shot (injection) daily or weekly and include:
Dulaglutide (Trulicity) (weekly)
Exenatide extended release (Bydureon bcise) (weekly)
Exenatide (Byetta) (twice daily)
Semaglutide (Ozempic) (weekly)
Liraglutide (Victoza, Saxenda) (daily)
Lixisenatide (Adlyxin) (daily)
Semaglutide (Rybelsus) (taken by mouth once daily)
These drugs mimic the action of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide 1. When blood sugar levels start to rise after someone eats, these drugs stimulate the body to produce more insulin. The extra insulin helps lower blood sugar levels.
These medications also slow the passage of food from the stomach to the small intestine. As a result, you may feel full faster and for a longer period of time, causing you to eat less.
