This drug works by mimicking GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1), a hormone that stimulates the pancreas to release insulin and suppresses glucagon secretion, slowing gastric emptying. GLP-1 can also help regulate appetite by controlling blood sugar levels.
People taking Wegovy may eat fewer calories and lose weight over time. As a result, weight-related conditions may also improve when taking Wegovy. It’s most effective when used with a healthy, reduced-calorie diet and exercise.
Is Wegovy FDA approved?
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Wegovy for chronic weight management in adults with obesity or overweight adults with weight-related health problems in June 2021.
Prior to FDA approval, researchers studied Wegovy’s safety and effectiveness in four 68-week trials. Nearly 3,000 patients received Wegovy in these four studies, and the FDA determined it safe and helpful enough to approve it.
Is Wegovy effective for weight loss?
Based on four 68-week trials, the FDA determined Wegovy is a safe and effective way for overweight or obese people to lose weight and manage chronic health problems related to weight. Overall, more than 2,600 patients received Wegovy and more than 1,500 patients received placebo.
By the end of the first three trials, almost 80% of participants had lost at least 5% of their body weight from using Wegovy, and almost half the participants lost more than 15% of their body weight. Of the patients receiving a placebo, approximately one-third lost at least 5% of body weight and less than 10% of participants lost more than 15% of their body weight.
The medication is most effective when coupled with a calorie deficit (eating fewer calories than you burn) and routine exercise.
