What is Semaglutide?

Semaglutide is a groundbreaking drug that has garnered significant attention in the medical community. Known for its exceptional efficacy, semaglutide belongs to a class of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists (GLP-1 RAs). This FDA-arppoved medication has been widely used to manage type 2 diabetes and are to be highly effective in controlling blood sugar levels. One of the remarkable qualities of semaglutide is its ability to stimulate the release of insulin from the pancreas, promoting better blood sugar control. Additionally, it slows down the digestion process, which helps regulate the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream. This unique dual mechanism of action makes Semaglutide an invaluable tool in managing type 2 diabetes. In addition to its role in diabetes management and weight loss, Semaglutide has also displayed promising outcomes in cardiovascular health. Studies have revealed that Semaglutide can reduce the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events in patients with type 2 diabetes and established cardiovascular disease. This discovery highlights the broader therapeutic potential of Semaglutide beyond glycemic control.

Had an excellent first experience with Oak Derm today. I was seen by NP Emily Schnurstein for facial flushing and hair loss. She listened carefully to all of my concerns and addressed each one of them throughly. The front desk staff was also very pleasant.

Yesterday I had a fantastic skin check and initial visit with Dr. Janiga. From the moment he stepped into the exam room he made me feel comfortable, was extremely personable, and helped educate me about caring for my skin and skin health. I enjoyed his approach of checking me over interspersed with talks about what he found/how I can continue to care for myself. Working in a medical role I interact with all sorts of doctors regularly and can say he is the best combination of professional and casual. Oak Dermatology’s entire staff was also helpful, friendly, and patient while providing a clean and tidy office. I will go out of my way to make sure I continue seeing Dr. Janiga in the future for my check-ups and will recommend him whenever given the chance.
