GLP-1 medications like Mounjaro, Ozempic, and Wegovy.


Please help me (a five year old in a 34 year old body) understand how these medications work.

GLP-1 is a “I’m full” signal parts of your body sends to other places in your body. The medications are enough like GLP-1 that your body gets the same message, but they have been modified so they stick around in your body a lot longer than the natural ones. So it makes you feel less hungry because your brain is constantly getting a message that you just ate.
