GLP-1 is a hormone released by the intestines in response to food intake. It plays a crucial role in regulating blood sugar levels by stimulating insulin release, slowing down gastric emptying, and reducing glucagon production. These actions contribute to overall glucose control in the body. GLP-1 is also associated with feelings of fullness and satiety. Medications known as GLP-1 agonists are used in the management of diabetes to enhance these beneficial effects and improve blood sugar control. Understanding GLP-1 is essential in the context of metabolic health and diabetes management.
GLP-1 therapy is recommended for individuals with type 2 diabetes who struggle to control their blood sugar through conventional methods. Ideal candidates include those seeking weight management benefits and facing challenges with oral medications or insulin alone. Commitment to a prescribed injection regimen and overall diabetes management plan is crucial. Healthcare professionals assess individual patient profiles to determine the suitability of GLP-1 based on factors like medical history and current medications.
