A team of researchers has recently created a pill that might be a major breakthrough to a silent and deadly disease of diabetes. This pill might acts as boon to diabetic patient, it can significantly improve the health of people with diabetes and also help to reduce some kilos from their waistlines. The findings indicated that among patients with type 2 diabetes, the drug semaglutide taken by pill resulted in better glycemic control than placebo over 26 weeks.According to the results from 632 patients, semaglutide allowed 71% of them to reduce their weight. It is believed this is the first type 2 diabetes pill to instigate weight loss. Although there are several treatments for type 2 diabetes, therapy selection involves consideration of the risks of adverse effects such as hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) or weight gain and complexity of treatment.The pill could be available in as little as two years. Semaglutide is a glucagon-like-peptide-1 (GLP-1) analogue, a relatively new group of injectable drugs. It can also be taken orally as a pill. It works by stimulating the production of insulin and suppressing the secretion of the glucose-raising hormone glucagon. The drug also lowers appetite.
