Sharon, a 71-year-old woman, recently shared her regrets about using the drug Ozempic for weight loss. Although Ozempic is FDA-approved for reducing the risk of heart attacks in adults with heart disease and lowering blood sugar levels in people with Type 2 diabetes, it has not been approved for chronic weight management. Despite this, the drug has gained popularity among celebrities, many of whom have openly discussed their use of Ozempic.
In September, Sharon appeared on Piers Morgan Uncensored and revealed that she lost more weight than she intended due to the drug. She said, “I lost 42 pounds now and it’s just enough. I didn’t actually want to go this thin, but it just happened, and I’ll probably put it all on again soon.” Sharon described experiencing symptoms such as nausea and constant thirst while using Ozempic. She emphasized the importance of keeping the drug away from younger people, as it can have adverse effects on their health.
Additionally, Sharon disclosed that her appetite has been significantly affected by Ozempic, stating that she goes without eating for at least three days a week. She recently shared in an interview with the Daily Mail that she is currently unable to gain any weight and feels too skinny. She urged caution when using the drug and warned against giving it to teenagers, as it can easily lead to addiction and excessive weight loss.
Sharon’s experience with Ozempic serves as a reminder of the potential dangers associated with off-label drug use for weight loss.
