Understanding GLP-1

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.

With Dr. Gibson's compassionate guidance at Elysion Health & Wellness, I felt supported in my weight management journey. Her tailored approach addressed both physical and emotional aspects, making the experience meaningful and successful.

How Does GLP-1 Work?

  • Appetite Regulation: GLP-1 plays a role in appetite regulation, and treatment may contribute to a more controlled and balanced approach to eating.
  • Blood Glucose Control: By modulating insulin secretion and reducing the production of glucose by the liver, GLP-1 Treatment helps maintain stable blood glucose levels.
  • Weight Management: GLP-1 Treatment may assist in weight management by promoting a feeling of fullness and reducing the likelihood of overeating.
  • Cardiometabolic Health: GLP-1 has demonstrated positive effects on various aspects of cardiometabolic health, including cardiovascular function and lipid metabolism.

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.
