How we did the study

In our real-world 2024 study, led by Embla researchers, we followed 2,246 individuals in our weight loss program to explore the benefits of personalised semaglutide dosing and lifestyle coaching.
Participants received lower doses of semaglutide while engaging in our holistic, personalised coaching program. The study tracked self-registered data, including body weight and semaglutide doses, with regular follow-ups to monitor progress.
