What are these medications?
GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) medications are a class of drugs used to treat type 2 diabetes by improving blood sugar control. GLP-1 is a naturally occurring hormone that stimulates insulin release from the pancreas, inhibits glucagon secretion, slows down gastric emptying, and promotes a feeling of fullness, which helps in regulating blood sugar levels. GLP-1 medications mimic the effects of this hormone to enhance the body's response to glucose and promote overall glycemic control.
