What are Ozempic and Wegovy?
Ozempic and Wegovy are GLP-1 receptor agonists, which mimic the hormone GLP-1 naturally produced in the body. Other similar drugs include:
These drugs use the active ingredient semaglutide and were originally designed to treat type 2 diabetes. After these drugs entered the market for diabetes, the drug companies discovered that the drugs could slow food movement through the stomach and reduce appetite, so they were later marketed as weight loss drugs. As the sales of these drugs exploded, a flood of cases have been reported by individuals developing severe stomach issues while taking these drugs or shortly after stopping.
Recent studies show that Ozempic and similar weight loss drugs can cause stomach paralysis, uncontrolled vomiting, and other serious gastrointestinal issues, some which can result in hospitalization and death.
