What is Saxenda?
According to multiple medical sources, FDA-approved liraglutide helps individuals with Type 2 diabetes to keep their blood sugar in control. Researchers found that using this medication helps in weight loss. More research was conducted to determine whether it could help people without diabetes manage their weight.
After a few years, Saxenda was introduced. It gained popularity worldwide and was approved by all the drug related agencies to be used not only to help people with type 2 diabetes but also for weight management.
Currently, Saxenda is well known for chronic weight management. It’s a prescribed weight loss injection that is ideal for adults with a BMI of more than 27. Moreover, it also works like a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1).
GLP-1 is a hormone created naturally in your body that functions as an appetite suppressant that regulates your hunger.
The main objective of Saxenda is to help individuals to consume fewer calories without feeling hungry.
Did you know that Saxenda can slow gastric emptying once you consume your meal?
It allows the food you consume to stay longer in your stomach and makes you feel full.
What is Obesity?
By now you should know that Saxenda works well with individuals that are overweight and obese.
So, what you should know about obesity?
Overweight or obese is the weight of an individual which is higher than the ideal healthy weight for a given height.
Body Mass Index (BMI) is the measurement used to identify whether a person is underweight, healthy weight, overweight or obese.
BMI is calculated by dividing kilograms by the square root of the height in meters.
Obesity is common today. Moreover, BMI has some limitations as a weight measuring metric. This is because there are other factors like age, sex, muscle mass, and ethnicity that can influence BMI and body fat.
However, BMI remains as one of the most ideal ways to measure the body size of individuals.
What Causes Obesity?
Did you know that eating more calories than you burn is the main reason that causes obesity in the long term?
The extra calories that remain in your body lead to weight gain.
However, excess intake of calories is not the only reason for obesity. There are other factors that you can’t control as follows:
- Not getting enough sleep can impact your digestive system and cause hormonal changes that make you feel hungrier and consume more calories.
- Pregnancy in females can cause weight gain and cause difficulties in losing weight post-pregnancy.
- The age factor. Once you grow older, your metabolic rate slows down which makes it easier to gain weight.
Classification of Obesity
|Body Mass Index (BMI)||Classification|
|18.5 to < 25.0||“healthy” or “normal” weight|
|25.0 to < 30.0||Overweight|
|30.0 to < 35.0||Obesity Class 1|
|35.0 to < 40.0||Obesity Class 2|
|40.0 or more||Obesity Class 3|
How Saxenda Can Help You Lose Weight?
You need to know that taking Saxenda will help you lose some weight, but it will not get you back to your ideal weight. It’s essential for you to make lifestyle changes to further enhance the effectiveness of Saxenda.
As we have seen the downside of Saxenda, let’s look at how Saxenda can help you lose weight.
Saxenda Improves Insulin Sensitivity
Did you know it is impossible for your body to burn fat when you have elevated levels of insulin?
Saxenda helps you to reduce insulin resistance.
When you’re using Saxenda, it helps to sensitize insulin levels in your body while lowering blood glucose levels.
This also activates lipase, a digestive enzyme that supercharges the fat-burning process in your body.
Saxenda Reduces Appetite
As we have mentioned earlier this medication slows down your gastrointestinal motility which means gastric content in your stomach gets empty more slowly than usual.
And that’s why you will feel your stomach is full and stops you from taking in more calories.
As a rule of thumb, calorie deficit promotes weight loss. With Saxenda you’ll be able to control your hunger.
Saxenda increases the metabolism rate
Metabolism rate is another crucial factor in weight loss. When you use Saxenda, it influences your basal metabolic rate.
Basal metabolic rate (BMR) is the calories your body burns without performing any physical activities. In other words, resting energy expenditure.
Saxenda helps in improving your metabolism rate by regulating your leptin levels. The consistent intake of Saxenda will help you improve your basal metabolic rate.
Saxenda reduces leptin resistance
GLP-1 helps in lowering your leptin resistance. In comparison to other hormones, leptin is one of the important hormones that influence your entire weight loss process.
The only problem with leptin is that it can increase your appetite and lower your metabolism rate.
This is where Saxenda comes in. It helps to make changes to the biochemistry of your body to enable you to continuously lose weight.
