How Does Injection Ozempic Work?
Ozempic falls into a class of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonists or incretin mimetics.
It functions by binding to GLP-1 receptors, which has several effects:
Stimulating insulin release from the pancreas when necessary.
Reducing sugar release from the liver.
Slowing down the emptying of the stomach.
Lowering A1C and blood sugar levels.
Potentially reducing appetite.
Contact your doctor immediately if you notice signs of a thyroid tumor, such as swelling or a lump in your neck, difficulty swallowing, hoarseness, or shortness of breath.
Ozempic should not be used if you have multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2 (tumors in your glands) or a personal/family history of medullary thyroid cancer.
