Welcome to my diabetes channel! Let’s talk about Ozempic, weight loss, side effects and I’ll give you a 2 month update.

✨ 6-month Ozempic update:
✨ Here’s how to take Ozempic:
✨ Dealing with nausea? Here are some natural remedies:

I’m really excited to share this video because originally I was extremely afraid of taking Ozempic. I’d heard a lot about side effects and didn’t think it’d be for me. I’ve had some really great weight loss with ozempic, and the side effects haven’t been too awful.

After 2 months I’ve had steady weight loss (which has always been hard for me with PCOS, insulin resistance and Type 1.5 diabetes (or LADA) while still taking insulin.

Additionally, my blood sugars have been ridiculously good. Fastings under 100 mg/dL and mealtimes coasting in the 150’s.

I talk about some of the side effects (and initially not having them and then suddenly having them badly).

The before and after in the thumbnail is a video I shot in May (at a similar starting weight) on the left, and the “during” photo on the right is of me on the day of uploading this video. I’m wearing the same shirt and glasses for reference.

I’m curious if you’ve seen similar results with using Ozempic. Do you still keep losing weight beyond the first 2 months?

    I went to the doctor yesterday and he gave me this. They showed me how to use it. And this morning I was surprised to see 95. I thought it would be high because I had a tiny piece of cake yesterday night. I think I will be happy with this. I am on glipizide and insulin and lost 3 pounds. So now I can't wait to see how this will help me. I'm glad I can into your videos couple weeks ago. Now I don't feel alone.

    You are so articulate (and gorgeous) that it's a pleasure to listen to you. I am a French lady, old enough to be your grandma.. and in 2 months on Ozempic I lost 27 pounds. I don't exercise yet, but l will. Like you l started on 0,25 but so far l haven't been on 1,00 but no secondary side effects. What is incredible for me is not to be consumated by cravings and discovering satiety. Take good care of yourself. Back in Europe Oxempic is free…

    Today is my first day using Ozempic. I have fought my weight all my life and finding out that my A1C was 7 , my doctor suggested Ozempic and removing the Metformin. I hope that this helps, because I am becoming self-conscious as I just moved to a size 4x. I am at my heaviest and hope with some exercise and better diet management I can curve some of my weight off. Thanks for the videos and support!!!

    I am about to start Ozempic and I know the needle is tiny but with my anxiety I’m terrified to inject myself. I thought the needle would be hidden and you press the pen to your body and then press the button to release the needle into skin. But I watched one of your videos and it looks like you push the needle into your skin and then inject. Please tell me that is not the case. I’m sorry but I’m just wondering what you think I should do because I’m so fearful

    Thank you for your video. I have newly started Ozempic and the first week was great. After upping my dose to .5, my side effects are horrible. The vomiting and diarrhea are keeping me from being myself and it was worse on my period. Has anyone else had these issues at this time? My doctor says to skip the dose near the time I start. I want to stay positive, but these side effects are causing me to really second guess this medicine. Any help and tips are appreciated!

    Funny story, I read the instructions wrong and instead of .25mg (12.5cc) I injected .25ml (25cc)… Holy cow… Worst 5 days of my life.

    Been on ozempic for six and a half months now. My A1C was at 19 and I weighed 267lbs. six and a half months later.. A1C is at 7.2, 207 lbs!!! All I did was go on ozempic and quit drinking cola. I walk a bit now that I have some energy and pride over the weight loss, but don't really exercise.. I've never been able to lose weight.. started gaining in high school and just got bigger each year. I am throwing a party when I hit 199lbs since I haven't been under 200 for over a decade. I hope ozempic never stops working for me. I get the nausea and have vomited a handful of times in the last 6 months but to be honest, the side effects are more than worth it for me when I put on pants that I wore 6 months ago and they drop to my ankles immediately!! Loose skin is now my issue from losing so much weight but it's something I wear with pride! For anyone struggling with diabetes and their weight, talk to your doctor about ozempic. I'm hoping they approve it for a higher dose for even better results.

    Thank you for sharing your experience with this med. ❤ I just picked up my fist months doses. So nervous but needed the extra boot to go with eating clean, keto and intermittent fasting. I have lost weight with the latter two but seemed to have stalled. So hoping this will help. Am not diabetic but do have Ankylosing Spondylitis (auto immune disease) This limits my mobility. And pounds have been creeping up over the past few yrs. again Thank you . and your looking amazing.

    I'm so glad I found this. I suffer from severe medication phobia and I've had Ozempic in my fridge for almost a year. My A1C has gone from 7.4 to 8.4 and by sugars are running in the high 200s. This is giving me the courage I needed. I mean what can I lose right? Maybe weight and high sugars? Wish me luck. Monday I start!

    Is it dangerous if you aren't type 2 diabetic? I'm on the path to diabetes. Everyone on my dad's side has type 2. I've always had weight problems. I have planned on starting next week. I'm a little nervous my blood sugar is going to drop. P

    I have great insurance and it would cost me $100 a month. I use the online coupon and pay $50 at a local pharmacy. Sucks for us diabetics.

    I've been following your videos to see how this drug was affecting you and left comments about how it wasn't working even in conjunction with Jardiance, insulin and Metformin. I had been on the lower dose of Jardiance for a couple of months and after less than a week of good results, my glucose skyrocketed even although my meals stayed the same. I had constant yeast infections that needed to be treated several times. Then my endo put me on Ozempic, lowest does. I had nausea, a little constipation at first, lasting a week then disappeared. But, my blood glucose remained high, higher than ever. It was distressing. I actually ha to increase my insulin. I eat a whole foods vegetarian diet, all organic and average about 1200 calories a day, no junk food or processed food ever, except the occasional cup of pasta or slice of bread. I make my own bread with fresh ground organic wheat berries. No more than a slice a day and pasta no more than once a week. So I was puzzled and despairing. Then, after a month on both drugs, my glucose magically dropped an sayed dropped. I cut out all the rapid insulin and cut my long acting by a third. I had lost nine pounds over the last couple of months but am feeling that is too quick, I don't want saggy skin. I'm supposed to start the higher dose of Ozempic today but my glucose is so normal that I would have to eat more or I'm in hypo-land.Although my diet has not changed, the frequency of my meals have. I'm not hungry all the time and can go longer without meals. I am back to the relationship I had with food in my twenties before the first signs of diabetes hit and I started slowly to become constantly ravenous. I may have to cut back even further on the insulin.I have steroid induced diabetes that is treated as type 2. So I would urge people not to give up. I used crystalized ginger for the nausea and Gravol when it got bad. I do urge people to try this drug and stay with it for a month or so before quitting. Your body will gradually get used to it. I was 233 at my highest weight after starting the steroids am now 151 after starting the whole foods vegetarian diet and staying on it all these years, but I assume this drug would work with any diet. Nine of those pounds were due to the drugs and appetite changes as I have almost no appetite at all now. I'm 67 and don't exercise except in the house and garden. One side effect that may not be linked is extreme sleepiness. It started soon after the Jardiance and is now severe. I'm getting bloodwork done for that this week. Has anyone on this drug experienced that?

    I just came
    Across your video because I was searching for information on Ozempic… I just seen my
    Diabetes specialist last week and I basically begged her to help me figure out to do for weight loss. Well I am a straight forward type 1. I lost 100 lbs on the weight loss drug Alli … I was 140 lbs and loving my look and felt and looked great and then they had that recall and because I’m on admalog for short acting and Bazaglar for long acting. I was off Alli for over a year and I’m not one to overeat but I gained 70 lbs. I’m 210 now and NOT happy!! When they brought Alli back out they changed the formula or whatever I even got my Dr to write me a perscription strength .. still doesn’t work in fact I GAINED on it. My specialist told me about Ozempic of course being a type 2 drug BUT with close monitoring she said this would help my sugars , and most of all help me with my weight loss wants. She gave me a sample which would last me 6-8 weeks and the. We will see how it works for me… I can’t seem to bring myself to try it a week later because she said the ONE problem we COULD face is Diabetic Ketosis because I’m type 1. She explained because my sugars WILL be almost perfect it would eliminate my need for insulin … on the other side a body HAS to have insulin but if your sugars are perfect and your body don’t produce it, I still have to somehow take it and fear crashing So she mentioned keeping my sugars up between 150-180 and do a balance thing between taking insulin , eating a little sugar, and keeping the blood sugars a tad higher so I don’t go into Ketosis from NOT taking insulin…
    I really WANT to try to get some weight off and out of ideas NOTHING works for me I’m also very self conscious of the way I look now at 140 (I’m a guitar player in a band) I looked really good … girls all wanted to know me…. 70 lbs later I’m told I look like Chumley from Pawn Stars. My question to you… in your opinion should I try this Ozempic ? I figure she wouldn’t be willing to let me try it if it was gonna make me just drop dead…. But yet… I think that’s what I’m scared of… she wants me to start with the 2.5 as well. Any response and opinion would be greatly appreciated 😀😀

    I have been using ozempic for 9 weeks now and have already lost 47 pounds. I find it so hard to eat now. My blood sugar is rarely above 4.1 now even after I eat. I cut sugar and carbs out completely. Hopefully my diabetes will be gone for good after another 50 pounds are gone. Ozempic has been a miracle for me. The side affects were really bad for the first two weeks but that was most likely a combo of the drug and my blood sugar plummeting from 12s-14s down to 4
