First and foremost, we want to emphasize that this information does not constitute medical advice. It is imperative that you consult with the healthcare professional who prescribed your medication before making any changes to your dosage or discontinuing your treatment.
This video is intended for individuals who are considering weight loss through injectable medications such as Ozempic or Mounjaro. We aim to help you make an informed decision by comparing our program with the potential outcomes of these medications.
Many of our patients have come to us after experiencing distressing side effects, often due to a lack of complete information about the medications they were using. Common side effects of these injectables include nausea, stomach pain, constipation, diarrhea, and vomiting, which can persist throughout the day. Additionally, these side effects can significantly impact your mood and energy levels.
It’s important to be aware of the more serious potential side effects of Ozempic, which encompass thyroid tumors, pancreatitis, changes in vision, hypoglycemia, gallbladder issues, kidney failure, and even an increased risk of cancer.
Furthermore, a clinical trial conducted in 2021 revealed a concerning fact: nearly half of the weight lost with these medications can come from the loss of lean muscle mass.
We understand that many people are eager to shed extra pounds, but we also want to emphasize that there are alternative, potentially safer approaches to weight loss. Our goal is to ensure that you are well-informed about the associated risks before embarking on any treatment plan.
