Do you qualify for use of the latest weight-loss wonder Ozempic?

Visit our Ozempic website page to find out if you now qualify to receive this remarkable new treatment that promotes weight loss.

There has been a tremendous revolution in the approach that you can now take to help fight obesity. It started when the use of a weekly injectable drug for type II diabetics called Ozempic (semaglutide), which came into general release in 2017, was also reported to be promoting significant weight loss in a large proportion of the patients receiving it.

A large proportion of obese patients with diabetes II being treated with Ozempic had lost a significant amount of weight, in one study shedding an average of 16.5 pounds (7.5 kilos) of their starting body mass over the course of treatment. On the other hand, patients not receiving Ozempic had gained 12.5 pounds (5.7 kilos) on average. This also showed up as a loss of three inches (7 cm) in waistline for the ones receiving the treatment compared to an increase of over 1.5 inches (3.5 cm) in the placebo group.

After consideration of these obvious benefits, the FDA has now ruled that doctors can prescribe Ozempic for use in adults with a BMI greater than or equal to 30 (units of the BMI are mg/kg²) on its own, or 27 if they diagnose at least one comorbidity that is weight-related.

How to understand BMI

The Body Mass Index calculates a ratio of weight to height, using a complex formula that needn’t concern us here. It’s enough to know that providing just these two figures is all that it takes to produce the BMI figure that will determine whether or not you qualify to be prescribed Ozempic. In the following table we are showing the four categories that are used to determine whether a person qualifies for use of Ozempic:

 

BMI Status
Under 18.5 Underweight
18.5 – 24.9 Normal
25.0 – 26.9 Mild overweight – not eligible for Ozempic
27.0  – 29.9 Mild overweight – eligible for Ozempic if there is one additional weight-related comorbidity (for example type II diabetes or hypertension)
30.0 – 39.9 Overweight – eligible for Ozempic
40.0 and over Obese – eligible for Ozempic

 

We are making the whole process easy. You get the calculation done for you and proceed to order your Ozempic from our website in a single step. Furthermore, if you have not yet been issued with a prescription for Ozempic, we can arrange it on your behalf.

Just visit our website page so that you can calculate your BMI and go ahead with an order if you qualify. Fill in the figures of height and weight, and our app will do the calculation right then, and tell you if you qualify. We can also get a request submitted for a prescription if you don’t already have one.

How does Ozempic work for people wishing to lose weight?

Ozempic can induce sustainable weight loss by reducing appetite and sense of hunger. It should go along with a sensible program of diet and exercise. 

Ozempic works by slowing gastric emptying (the speed at which the stomach empties itself of food consumed).  GLP-1, the key hormone, also blocks the production of glucagon, which instructs the liver to release stored glucose. Both of these will cause a lower level in food intake. Ozempic can also reduce an appetite for high-fat foods, which carry the double penalty of being high in “bad” cholesterol (which creates increased dangers of cardiovascular disease) as well as producing more calories than their equivalent weight in low-fat foods.
