Medical News / Reported from ADA: Semaglutide Significantly Reduces Long-Term Diabetes Risk Among Obesity Patients

Once-weekly 2.4 mg semaglutide is associated with an approximate 60% reduced risk of type 2 diabetes in patients with obesity, according to new findings presented at the American Diabetes Association (ADA) 2022 Scientific Sessions this weekend. In new late-breaking data presented by study author W. Timothy Garvey, MD, endocrinologist and Butterworth Professor of Medicine in the department of nutrition science at University of Alabama School of Medicine, a team of US investigators found the GLP-1 agonist provided a substantially decreased risk of type 2 diabetes development among people with obesity, regardless of their baseline glycemic status, when combined with diet and exercise.
