What is Ozempic?
Are you looking for an effective way to lose weight? Ozempic (Semaglutide) may be the answer. This injectable medication has been proven to help promote weight loss in adults who are overweight or obese and have had difficulty with other treatments. It can also help regulate blood sugar levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes when used as part of a healthy lifestyle.
Are Wegovy and Ozempic the Same?
Yes-Ozempic and Wegovy are the same medication. They both contain semaglutide, a GLP-1 receptor agonist that helps promote weight loss and regulate blood glucose levels in individuals with type 2 diabetes. The main difference between the two is the dosage—Wegovy comes in higher doses compared to Ozempic and was approved by the FDA in 2021 for weight loss.
How Semaglutide Works
Semaglutide is a once-a-week injection under the skin. It helps increase the body’s sensitivity to insulin, which can contribute to weight loss, reduced body mass index, and improved blood sugar management. Additionally, its ability to slow down digestion may help you feel fuller longer and make it easier to limit your calorie intake. When combined with regular physical activity and a reduced-calorie diet, Semaglutide can help you reach your weight loss goals. In one clinical trial published by the New England Journal of Medicine, looking at 129 centers across 16 countries consisting of almost 2,000 participants over 68 weeks (1 year and 4 months), adult patients treated with weekly semaglutide injection lost close to 15% of their body weight, on average, compared to 2.4% among those receiving the placebo.
Are There Any Additional Benefits of Semaglutide?
Other Surprising Benefits:
Decreased blood pressure
Reduced body fat including excess abdominal fat
Decreased cardiovascular events, such as strokes and heart attacks
What Are the Side Effects?
Ozempic may cause side effects in some people. Common side effects include nausea, diarrhea, abdominal pain, constipation, headache, and dizziness. In rare cases, it may also lead to more serious issues such as low blood sugar levels, pancreatitis, and thyroid tumors. Be sure to speak with your doctor if you have any concerns or questions about taking semaglutide.
Who Should Not Use Semaglutide?
If you have had pancreatitis in the past, a personal or family history of thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome (MEN), are breastfeeding currently, or have type 1 diabetes then semaglutide is not suitable for your use.
