This fat-loss treatment for diabetes has become the new expensive diet of Hollywood, with a promise of a quick loss of five to ten kilograms when it is taken as recommended. A billionaire's father publicly criticized Elon Musk's poor eating habits after the billionaire publicly admitted he did not like exercise, and this has led to the billionaire admitting to using Wegovy, an injection used for chronic weight loss in adults with obesity and type 2 diabetes.
Musk received a question from a fan on Twitter asking him, "What's your secret?" to which he replied that "Fasting" and "Wegovy" were the secret to his new-found figure and shape. He is the latest billionaire to admit to the use of Wegovy, a high dose of the diabetes medication semaglutide that has become very popular on TikTok in recent months, with celebrities praising its many health benefits.
It has been speculated that many celebrities, including Kim Kardashian, use weight loss drugs to lose weight, according to a TikTok user when discussing the reality star's weight loss after losing 20 pounds, who noted that the reality star used weight loss drugs.
"How did Kim K lose weight so fast? Is she on Wegovy too?" asked a tiktoker following her significant weight loss and Musk's recent tweet about Wegovy.
An overview of the advantages and side effects of diabetes injections
A medication for treating type 2 diabetes and long-term weight management, semaglutide, also known as Wegovy and Ozempic, is an antidiabetic.
While this medication has many uses, the majority of people use it to manage their weight over a long period of time, high blood pressure, or high cholesterol levels. Due to the fact that the drug is not covered by insurance companies in the U.S., the drug can be pricey, costing up to $1300 per month.
As this product has been shown to reduce body weight by 15%, it seems to be gaining popularity amongst more and more people. Dr. Robert Glatter, an emergency medicine Physician at Lenox Hill, told The Post, “The risk of gastrointestinal side effects including nausea, vomiting, bloating and constipation is a caution to patients”.
It is also thought to be worth noting that Ozempic is a drug that is composed of a compound called semaglutide, which is intended for people with type 2 diabetes and which is used for long-term weight management. However, it is used by more and more people who want to lose five to ten kilograms quickly.
As a result of using Wegovy, patients have been shown to lose 15 percent of their body weight as a result of losing weight.
