Has anyone else not lost weight on Ozempic? I have been on the full dose for a month or so. I am taking insulin twice daily and a full dose of metformin but haven’t lost any weight
Insulin is known to cause weight gain in most people,so can make it harder for you to lose weight. Also you need to remember that weight loss is a side effect of ozempic and not guaranteed. Also as your blood sugar readings come down then maybe your insulin can be reduced. Also it is important that you do not think you can eat any thing you like and lose weight if you are not eating sensibly and watching your carb and fat and sugar intake you can not expect to lose weight. Also make sure you are drinking plenty of water. I would also suggest that you measure your body and record your measurements and check yourself may be once a month as some people lose inches or cms before it shows on the scale. Also be patient a month is not really a long time. But like I said check your blood sugar readings and see if they are coming down,and if they are have a word with your doctor and see if you can start to reduce your insulin. Good luck.I am only on 0.25 and it is my 3rd dose and I haven't really noticed any of the side effects I was expecting.I was hoping for a suppressed appetite but have not yet experienced that but I know its early days.I was on insulin twice and day as well as metformin but my diabetic nurse suggested I stop that when I started ozempic. I was gaining weight weekly due to the insulin.but also being honest I know in myself that I was not strict with myself and ate pretty much what I wanted to and had no portion control either. So now I am try ing to work on those things as well.
It took me a few months on Ozempic before I saw any weight loss. I was only on .5mgs and it wasn't until my doctor upped my dosage to 1 mg is when I noticed weight loss. It's not much per month. But it adds up quickly. I also suffer from metabolic syndrome and I am thankful for getting this far. I have reached my first goal and that is getting to 40 BMI . And I continue to lose 3-5 lbs per month. And I can tell in how my body feels when I have lost weight. I think Ozempic will kill any appetite that insulin creates. Good luck to you!
