Rybelsus is a once daily tablet taken on an empty stomach each morning with a small sip of water. You must wait 30-minutes before eating or taking any other medications for it to work effectively.
Rybelsus contains the active ingredient Semaglutide. It was first licenced as a treatment for people with type 2 diabetes, as it reduces appetite and increases insulin productivity. It is likely that is will soon be used as a treatment for weight loss for those who are overweight or obese, because of its appetite-reducing properties.
Semaglutide, is 94% identical to the naturally occurring hormone (GLP-1) which is produced in the gut after eating. This hormone regulates appetite and insulin secretion. It also slows down the emptying of the stomach so people who take it have a longer sensation of feeling full which, in turn, reduces the amount of food eaten. This is both good for type 2 diabetes and those seeking to lose weight.
