What is Ozempic?
Ozempic is used to help manage high blood sugar for individuals with type 2 diabetes. Proper diet and exercise is required to see the maximum benefit of the drug as medical treatment alone cannot improve blood sugar levels. It is important to control high blood sugar as it can contribute to serious conditions such as stroke, heart attack and heart disease. It is not recommended to treat people with type 1 diabetes.

Before using your dose, clean the injection site with an alcohol swab. You should also change the location of the injection to prevent irritation or skin damage. The best places to inject the medicine is the abdomen, upper arm or the thigh. It usually takes every 7 days unless your doctor provides different instructions.
You will likely start on the lowest dose. It may change if your doctor determines that a higher dose is necessary to manage your condition. A higher dose may have a higher risk of side effects.
Ozempc works best when used regularly. It is meant to be used once every 7 days. You can change the day you take it as long as you wait at least two days for your next dose. As diet and exercise is important to achieve the best results, you can plan your exercise around when you take your dose. Creating an alarm or calendar can help.
Ozempic works similarly to a hormone called incretins. It helps to cause an insulin release when your blood sugar is too high. It also decreases the amount of sugar produced by the liver. If you need insulin injections to manage high blood sugar, this will not work as an appropriate substitution.
