Introduction to Semaglutide

Rock Ridge Pharmacy proudly offers compounded semaglutide, a cutting-edge medication for managing type 2 diabetes and obesity:

Semaglutide primarily targets the GLP-1 receptor, which results in heightened insulin production, diminished glucagon release, slower digestion, and enhanced satiety. This action is employed to better regulate blood sugar levels and, when administered in larger doses, to aid in weight control.

  • GLP-1 Receptor Activation: Semaglutide activates GLP-1 receptors, mimicking the action of a natural hormone in the body.
  • Insulin Release: It stimulates insulin secretion from pancreatic beta cells, aiding in glucose regulation.
  • Glucagon Inhibition: Semaglutide suppresses the release of glucagon, a hormone that typically increases blood sugar levels.
  • Gastric Control: It slows down gastric emptying, helping to regulate the absorption of nutrients, including glucose.
  • Appetite Regulation: Semaglutide may influence appetite control, potentially reducing food intake.
