Experience Lasting Weight Loss

If you are struggling with obesity, medication may be a viable option. At Roller Weight Loss & Advanced Surgery, Ozempic in Tulsa, OK, is one of the medications that may be prescribed as part of a comprehensive weight loss program. Ozempic is a prescription medication that has recently gained popularity for its effectiveness in aiding weight loss.

How Does Ozempic Work?

Ozempic is a once-weekly injection that comes in a pre-filled pen. It works by activating the GLP-1 receptor in the body, which is responsible for regulating insulin secretion, glucose production, and appetite.

When Ozempic activates this receptor, it increases insulin secretion and reduces glucose production, which can help lower blood sugar levels. Additionally, it can help reduce appetite and promote feelings of fullness, leading to weight loss.

In a clinical study of over 1,900 people with obesity, those who took Ozempic lost an average of 15% of their body weight over 68 weeks. This was compared to those who took a placebo and only lost an average of 2.4% of their body weight.

Another study found that Ozempic was more effective than a placebo in reducing body weight and improving other health markers, such as blood pressure and cholesterol levels.

Ozempic Candidates

If you have tried other weight loss methods without success, Ozempic in Tulsa, Fort Smith & Fayetteville, may be a viable option. However, not everyone is a suitable candidate for this medication. Consider the following:

Body Mass Index (BMI)

You must have a BMI of 30 or higher to be eligible for Ozempic as a weight loss treatment.

Pre-existing medical conditions

If you have a history of pancreatitis, gallbladder disease, thyroid cancer, or any other medical conditions that Ozempic may worsen, this medication may not suit you.

Medications

Certain medications may interact with Ozempic, so it is essential to inform us of any medications you are taking before starting this treatment.

Pregnancy and breast-feeding

Ozempic has not been studied in pregnant or breastfeeding women, so it is not recommended for use during these times.

Additionally, it's important to have realistic expectations. While the medication can help you lose weight, it's not a magic solution. You will still need to make lifestyle changes, such as eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly, to see the best results.

Not everyone will experience the same results. Some people may lose more weight than others, while some may not see any significant weight loss at all.

Benefits of Ozempic for Weight Loss

Here are some benefits of using Ozempic for weight loss:

  • Reduced appetite: Ozempic mimics the effects of GLP-1, a hormone that helps regulate appetite. This can help you feel full and satisfied with smaller portions, making it easier to stick to a healthy diet.
  • Improved blood sugar control: Ozempic is also used to treat type 2 diabetes, and it can help improve blood sugar control. This can be especially beneficial for those who struggle with insulin resistance or high blood sugar levels.
  • Increased energy: Losing weight can help improve your energy levels, and Ozempic may help you lose weight more quickly and efficiently than diet and exercise alone.
  • Lower risk of health problems: Obesity is associated with a higher risk of many health problems, including heart disease, stroke, and certain types of cancer. Losing weight with Ozempic can help reduce your risk of these and other health problems.
  • Improved quality of life: Losing weight can help improve your overall quality of life by reducing joint pain, improving sleep, and boosting your mood and self-confidence.
