Ozempic & Diabetes

AM Says:

I was prescribed Ozempic for weight loss. 12 hours after taking the first dose, the fatigue and brain fog I’ve struggled with for years was greatly improved. This leaves me wondering if I may have pre-diabetes or even the beginning of Type II. Can anyone advise if having such a positive response to Ozempic could be a sign of this condition?

I am pre-diabetic. My doctor tried to prescribe me I was Ozempic but insurance wouldn't allow it. I am on Medicaid and as with most things they'd rather wait until there's a problem then be proactive. It sounds like you had good results and so I am encouraged and if I do become diabetic it will be a big help. It's so hard to lose weight with chronic pain. Take care of yourself. Sounds like you are!

It is possible, but only your doctor can say for sure.

The FDA lists the typical side effects of Ozempic as possibly including anxiety, constipation, stomach pain, low blood sugar, and flatulence.

Dee, I'm very sorry that your insurance wouldn't cover this medication for you. Has your doctor suggested any alternative?

Unfortunately, no but I was thinking maybe I could try to contact the manufacturer of Ozempic?
