Ozempic and Wegovy are medications that have been found to help with significant weight loss, according to a new study.
The study involved over 2,000 participants who were overweight or obese, and the results showed that-
those who took Ozempic or Wegovy lost more weight than those who took a placebo.
Ozempic and Wegovy are both injectable medications that work by mimicking the hormone GLP-1, which regulates appetite and food intake.
The study found that participants who took Ozempic lost an average of 14.9% of their body weight,
while those who took Wegovy lost an average of 16.2% of their body weight.
In addition to weight loss, both medications also improved other health markers, such as blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and blood sugar control.
However, the medications are not without side effects, and some participants in the study experienced nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea.
The medications are currently only approved for use in individuals with a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or higher
or those with a BMI of 27 or higher and at least one weight-related health issue.
Both medications are only available with a prescription and should be used in conjunction with a healthy diet and exercise.
The study provides further evidence that Ozempic and Wegovy can be effective tools for weight loss in individuals struggling with obesity.
However, they are not without side effects and should only be used under the guidance of a healthcare professional.
