How to Overcome GLP1 Semaglutide Muscle Loss

Smiling girl with background of petals If you've found yourself on this page, chances are you're grappling with a common concern among individuals undergoing GLP1 treatment: muscle loss. While losing weight and improving your health, this unexpected side effect is disconcerning. Perhaps you're asking yourself questions like:

  • "Why am I losing muscle despite my success in losing weight?"
  • "Is there a way to prevent muscle loss while on GLP1 therapy?"
  • "How can I counteract muscle loss and maintain my strength and mobility?"

In this article, Pittsburgh’s Dr. Roxana Barad explains how GLP1 effects muscle loss and how this can be prevented and treated.

What Are GLP1 Deficits

GLP1, or Glucagon-Like Peptide 1, is a hormone primarily known for its role in regulating blood sugar levels. However, recent research shows its lesser-known influence on skeletal muscle health. GLP1 treatments lead to fat loss, as well as muscle wasting, posing a significant threat to vitality and quality of life.

Semaglutide, a GLP1 receptor agonist, is commonly prescribed for weight loss and diabetes management. While it is effective in helping patients shed excess weight and bring their blood sugar under control, it can also lead to unintended GLP1 muscle loss. If you are determined to lose weight using a Glucagon-Like Peptide 1, then it is important to understand its impact and the preventative measures available to help maintain a healthy, active lifestyle.

The Impact on Muscle Health

Muscle is not just about strength; it's the cornerstone of mobility, independence, and vitality. When GLP1 deficits or semaglutide muscle loss occur, the delicate balance of muscle maintenance is disrupted by weakness which increases the risks of falls and injuries. Whether you're a postmenopausal woman striving for graceful aging or a fitness enthusiast aiming to maintain peak performance, understanding and addressing GLP1 muscle loss is paramount.
