How does Saxenda work?

  • It triggers areas of your brain that control appetite and makes you feel fuller and less hungry meaning you eat less.
  • It reduced your gastric emptying, meaning the food eaten stays in the stomach longer and therefore smaller portions will make you feel satisfied.
  • It also signals to the pancreas and causes a rise in insulin levels and a drop in glucagon levels. This can help reduce blood sugar (glucose) levels after eating.
