Ozempic For Weight Loss

What is Ozempic?

Ozempic For Weight Loss is a brand-name version of the generic medication semaglutide, which is a type of medication called a glucagon-like peptide 1 receptor agonist. Instead of that tongue-twister of a name, we call these medications “GLP-1s” for short.

Ozempic is  a prescription drug that helps people with diabetes control their blood sugar. The medication may also promote weight loss.

However, mainly fueled by social media posts, there has been a recent surge in people without diabetes using Ozempic solely for weight loss. That spike has caused a shortage impacting those who need the medication for blood sugar management.

Ozempic is FDA-approved for the management of certain symptoms and risks of type 2 diabetes.

How does Ozempic For Weight Loss work?

Ozempic works by slowing the digestion process, which can help you to feel full for longer. Ozempic, like other GLP-1 receptor agonists, acts like a hormone your body naturally makes to regulate blood sugar and may help support weight loss.

Are there foods to avoid while taking Ozempic?

While a Ro-affiliated provider may offer personalized guidance for each individual, in general, there are no foods to avoid while taking Ozempic. In fact, our Body Program makes a point to avoid labeling any food as “off-limits,” and instead guides you in finding an approach to food that’s both enjoyable and supports your weight loss goals.

However, if prescribed Ozempic, you might choose to avoid certain foods on days that your doses are increased. Some gastrointestinal side effects like nausea may occur when Ozempic doses are increased, so you might find that it’s best to avoid foods that make you feel gassy or bloated on days that you’re increasing your dose.

What are the most common Ozempic For Weight Loss side effects?

All medications carry a risk of potential side effects. Ozempic’s side effects are typically mild and often improve within the first few weeks of treatment. When they occur, it’s usually when doses are increased, then tend to improve once a steady dose is reached. Some of the most common side effects include:
  • Nausea

  • Vomiting

  • Upset stomach

  • Stomach pains

  • Constipation

  • Diarrhea

  • Heartburn

  • Acid reflux

  • Belching and gas

  • Dizziness

  • Headaches

  • Fatigue

More severe side effects are rarer but possible. Serious side effects include:

  • Thyroid cancer—The FDA has issued its most serious warning (called a BOXED WARNING) that GLP-1s may be associated with a type of thyroid cancer called medullary thyroid carcinoma. So far, this side effect has primarily been seen in laboratory studies using rodents, so the risk to humans has not been determined.

  • Pancreatitis

  • Gallbladder disease

  • Rapid heartbeat

  • Severe allergy (hypersensitivity)

  • Low blood sugar

  • Vision problems (diabetic retinopathy)

  • Kidney disease
