Ozempic seems to work really well - a number of members here use it and I think only a couple had to stop because of side effects (which is common with any drug).
It's good for sugar control AND losing a bit of weight. It's a synthetic hormone exactly like one we make ourselves when we are eating (called GLP-1).
When you eat something GLP-1 is released and it does two things. Tells the pancreas to start pumping out the insulin and tells your brain "I'm getting full so stop eating".
Since this is synthetic it's there whether you are eating or not (in a lower dose). So it means you will put out some insulin to help deal with the (leftover) blood sugar that's floating around and you won't be as hungry "all of the time" which can result in eating less, which translates to weight loss (about 10 pounds is typically reported).
So an excellent drug if you tolerate it (most do).
it works great for me i did have nausea bad when i took it im a month in and no nausea
It is my 5th week and increased to 0.5g. I have already lost 5kg. The initial two weeks were difficult cos of side effects. I'm better now. My sugar levels also decreased significantly and I had to adjust my insulin from 40 40 20 to 30 30 20.
I started Ozempic late last Summer. With in two months my glucose went from 12 something to 6.5! No change of diet, a bit more exercise. Main complaint, constipation. Started eating homemade high probiotic yogurt and I'm still staying at same A1c.
I've been on Ozempic for six months now, and my A1C dropped from 8.2 to 6.1 in the first 3 months I was on it. To date I have lost 55 pounds, which is great. At first I had a bit of nausea and some constipation, but that went away quite quickly.
