Unless you are one of the few people whose insurance covers weight loss injections, and other similar medications, you could be paying thousands (and thousands) of dollars over a long period of time to reach your weight loss goals.
On top of that, these medications could be costing you more than just your hard-earned income.
The “real cost” of weight loss injections might be something much more than you bargained for.
The side-effects of weight loss medications can be devastating.
Aside from the widely known common side effects such as nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting – to name a few, serious digestive complications have been reported, and those statistics continue to rise.
On the injections, you aren’t just losing body fat…
According to trial results, of the 15% of weight participants lost over 68 weeks, close to half of it was lean body mass. And what is lean body mass? It’s muscle, organs, and bone. What it isn’t is body fat.
Data shows that weight loss from taking GLP-1 medications like Ozempic and Wegovy can cause a decrease in muscle mass, lessen bone density, and lower your resting metabolic rate, leading to sarcopenia (the gradual loss of muscle mass, strength, and function and is typically associated with aging).
The FDA, and popular success stories of semaglutide, doesn’t account for patients who are also losing lean muscle, which could worsen their health in the long-term.
The chances of gaining weight back, once you stop taking these weight loss medications, is alarmingly high.
Research published in the journal Diabetes, Obesity and Metabolism indicates that once people stop using the medication semaglutide any weight they’ve lost is likely to return. This study found that after a year, injection users had regained two-thirds of the weight they had lost.
Because semaglutide decreases your appetite along with the potential loss of muscle, gaining weight after stopping the injections seems inevitable, unless you have addressed the underlying cause of weight gain in the first place.
Healthy, long-term weight loss success requires sustainable changes to lifestyle and eating habits, not a “magic pill.”
