Lose up to 12% of your body weight a year

Ozempic has demonstrated notable effectiveness in supporting substantial weight loss over a year for individuals seeking to shed a significant portion of their body weight. Clinical trials have underscored its potential in aiding participants to achieve a remarkable milestone of up to 12% reduction in body weight within a year. When paired with lifestyle adjustments encompassing dietary changes and regular physical activity, Ozempic has exhibited promising outcomes in assisting individuals along their weight loss journey.

How Ozempic works

Ozempic, or semaglutide, is a GLP-1 receptor agonist that mimics a naturally occurring hormone in the body. Upon injection, it activates GLP-1 receptors primarily in the pancreas, brain, and stomach. This activation aids in regulating blood sugar levels by increasing insulin secretion in response to high blood sugar, while also reducing appetite and promoting a feeling of fullness.

Additionally, Ozempic slows down gastric emptying, contributing to improved blood sugar control and potentially aiding weight loss in individuals with type 2 diabetes or those seeking weight management.

Ozempic FAQs

What is Ozempic?

Jan 4, 2024

Ozempic is a medication containing semaglutide, which belongs to a class of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists. It’s mainly used to manage blood sugar levels in adults with type 2 diabetes. Semaglutide mimics the action of a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which helps regulate the release of insulin when you eat. This helps to control your blood sugar levels. It's taken via injection and is shown to be effective at supporting weight loss alongside lifestyle changes. 

How much weight can I expect to lose with Ozempic?

Jan 4, 2024

Individual results with Ozempic (semaglutide) can vary from person to person. In clinical trials for people with type 2 diabetes, people using Ozempic achieved weight loss ranging from around 9% to more than 12% of their initial body weight, on average.

Your weight loss can be influenced by various factors, including individual responses to the medication, consistency with treatment, lifestyle changes, metabolic differences and overall health. Some people might experience more significant weight loss, while others may see more moderate changes.

It's important to discuss your weight loss goals and expectations with a healthcare professional, who can provide personalized guidance and help set realistic expectations.

Rare side effects (1 in 1,000) may include allergic responses or pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas). Individuals should be vigilant for persistent abdominal pain or other signs. Liver enzyme abnormalities are also rare, necessitating regular monitoring. Any concerning symptoms should prompt immediate consultation with a healthcare professional. Maintaining open communication with your healthcare provider ensures a safe and effective experience with Ozempic. Monitoring and addressing any unusual changes promptly contribute to a healthier weight loss journey.
