I think I found the answer for Weight Loss.....

Posted by PeterMartin on April 5, 2021, at 0:06:46

I was able to get my pDoc to let me try Rybelsus(Semaglutide), which is an Oral GLP-1 RA Medication. It's the first of this class that comes in a pill. They've been around (Trulicity/Ozempic) but those required you injecting the medication once a week.

I'm on the starter titrating dose of 3mg and am down 5lbs. Bumping up to 7mg tomorrow and at that point it's supposed to really help. I'm very optimistic based on a FB group I'm in and a few recent studies like:


Of course it's crazy expensive at the moment and w/ most insurance it might be difficult to get approval w/o a DX of diabetes. They're definitely working towards getting it approved for wt loss (similar to the GLP-1 med w/ the same drugs as Trulicy called Saxenda).

I have about 40lbs to go....I can update if there's interest.

(Typing stream of thought on my phone so sorry if this is poorly written)
