What is a GLP-1 weight loss medication?

They mimic the actions of a natural hormone called GLP-1, which is released by the intestine in response to food intake.  GLP-1 helps regulate blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin release, slowing down stomach emptying, reducing appetite, and inhibiting the release of glucagon, a hormone that raises blood sugar.

Am I a good candidate for a GLP-1?

Generally, you may qualify for consideration if:

  • You have a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or above

  • You have a BMI of 27 or above with weight-related medical conditions

  • You do not have a condition that would prevent safe use

  • You are engaged in attempting to reach a healthier weight

Contraindications for GLP-1?

  • Allergies or Sensitivity: An allergy or sensitivity to the specific GLP-1 medication is a contraindication

  • History of Medullary Thyroid Cancer (MTC): People with a history of MTC or a family history of this type of cancer may be advised against using GLP-1 medications, as they have been associated with an increased risk of MTC

  • Severe Gastrointestinal Disorders: Conditions that may lead to severe gastrointestinal problems, such as gastroparesis, may be contraindications

  • Pancreatitis: A history of pancreatitis may be a contraindication, as some GLP-1 medications have been associated with an increased risk of pancreatitis

  • Pregnancy and Breastfeeding: The use of GLP-1 medications during pregnancy and breastfeeding is usually not recommended due to limited safety data
