What is Semaglutide/ Cyanocobalamin (Vitamin B12)?

Semaglutide is an injectable medication that works by helping the pancreas to release the right amount of insulin when blood sugar levels are high. Insulin helps move sugar from the blood into other body tissues where it is used for energy. Semaglutide injection also works by slowing the movement of food through the stomach and may decrease appetite and can help achieve weight loss goals!

Semaglutide Use

How can Semaglutide be Used?  

Semaglutide can be used for Type 2 diabetes as well as weight loss. Semaglutide interacts with the parts of the brain that suppress your appetite and signal you to feel full. When used in conjunction with diet and exercise, it can cause significant weight loss — and a reduced risk of cancer, diabetes and heart disease — in people who are obese or overweight. Semaglutide also prompts the body to produce more insulin, which reduces blood sugar (glucose). 


The Life Point Medical team has seen success in using semaglutide for:  

  • Type 2 Diabetes  
  • Weight Loss  


You should not use semaglutide if you are allergic to it, or if you have: 

  • multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (tumors in your glands); or 
  • a personal or family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma (a type of thyroid cancer). 
  • BMI :<27 
  • Pregnant or Breastfeeding 
  • Diabetes Mellitus Type 1  
  • Volume Depletion 

Tell your doctor if you have ever had: 

  • a stomach or intestinal disorder; 
  • pancreatitis; 
  • kidney disease; or 
  • eye problems caused by diabetes (retinopathy).
