Subcutaneous Injection of Semaglutide

A subcutaneous injection is a type of injection that is given into the layer of fat just beneath the skin. Semaglutide is a medication that is typically administered via subcutaneous injection for the treatment of type 2 diabetes or for weight loss in certain clinical trials. Here are the steps for administering a subcutaneous injection of Semaglutide:

  1. Wash your hands with soap and water.
  2. Choose an injection site on the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm. Rotate injection sites to reduce the risk of skin reactions.
  3. Clean the injection site with an alcohol swab and allow it to dry.
  4. Remove the cap from the Semaglutide pen or syringe.
  5. Pinch a fold of skin at the injection site.
  6. Insert the needle into the skin at a 45- to 90-degree angle, depending on the thickness of the skin and amount of subcutaneous fat. Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for proper injection technique.
  7. Slowly inject the medication, making sure that the entire dose has been administered.
  8. Withdraw the needle and release the skin fold.
  9. Dispose of the needle and pen or syringe in a sharps container.
  10. Replace the cap on the pen or syringe.
  11. Wash your hands with soap and water.

It’s important to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for administering Semaglutide or any other medication via subcutaneous injection. If you have any questions or concerns about how to administer the injection, or if you experience any side effects, it’s important to consult a healthcare professional.
