      The official box warning for Wegovy (semaglutide) states that it should not be used by individuals with a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer or by those with Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia syndrome type 2 (MEN 2). This warning is based on findings from animal studies where semaglutide was observed to cause thyroid C-cell tumors in rodents. However, it is important to note that the incidence of such tumors in humans has not been determined​​​​.

      It's crucial for individuals considering Wegovy for weight management to discuss these risks with their healthcare provider and to be aware of their family's medical history regarding thyroid cancer. As always, making an informed decision about any medical treatment is important, and consulting with healthcare professionals for personalized advice is advisable.

      What Is Wegovy?

      The CDC reports that over 40% of U.S. adults are obese, highlighting the need for effective weight control solutions. Wegovy, approved by the FDA in 2021, offers a promising option for those struggling with weight loss. Developed from the diabetes drug semaglutide, Wegovy has shown significant weight reduction in users. It works as a GLP-1 receptor agonist, activating receptors to regulate blood sugar and appetite, thus reducing hunger and boosting metabolism.

      Wegovy Cost & Coupons

      Insurance approval for Wegovy can be challenging, often leading to out-of-pocket costs of around $1300 per month in the U.S. To address this, Diet Pens offers a convenient alternative for purchasing Wegovy online, along with a 10% discount for new customers using promo code DIET10. Note that a valid prescription is required to purchase Wegovy.

      How Does Wegovy Work For Weight Loss?

      Wegovy mimics GLP-1, a hormone that regulates blood sugar and hunger. It helps suppress appetite, stabilize blood sugar, and boost insulin production, all contributing to weight loss.

      Appetite Suppression

      Wegovy makes you feel fuller, helping you consume fewer calories by stabilizing blood sugar levels, which is beneficial for metabolic health and weight management.

      Lowers Blood Sugar

      Wegovy stabilizes blood sugar by:

      • Controlling glucose absorption: Slows glucose absorption from the digestive system.
      • Increasing insulin production: Enhances insulin response to high blood sugar.
      • Improving insulin sensitivity: Helps cells absorb glucose better, maintaining blood sugar levels.

      These effects make Wegovy beneficial for diabetics and pre-diabetics, reducing the risk of complications like heart disease and nerve damage.

      You might gain back the weight you lost while taking Wegovy if you stop taking it. Research indicates that when one loses weight, the body responds with natural hormonal changes that cause an increase in appetite and a sluggish metabolism, which results in weight regain.

      With Wegovy, weight loss can take a long time. According to one study, people lost, on average, 6% of their starting body weight by 12 weeks, 10% by 20 weeks, and 15% in one year. Wegovy was used in conjunction with healthy nutrition and physical activity by patients in the study.

      It is usually not recommended that patients take alcohol while taking Wegovy® to lose weight. When alcohol is consumed, calories are added, and inhibitions are lowered, making it more challenging to maintain a healthy, calorie-reduced eating pattern. In addition, alcohol alone may lower blood sugar, which may be exacerbated if taken with Wegovy.

      Missed doses must be administered as soon as possible and within five days of the missed dose.

      The missed dose should be skipped if more than five days have passed, and the next dose should be administered on the regularly scheduled day once weekly dosing is resumed in each case.

      Do not double up or administer two doses within 48 hours.

      The needle is already attached to the Wegovy pens. When you are ready to inject, keep the pen cap on. If you store your pen without the cap, remove the cap and put it back on, or if the pen cap is missing, your pen is no longer sterile. An infection could result from this.

      Is There a Way to Store Wegovy?

      To protect the medication from light, store unused pens in their original cartons until needed.

      Pens should be stored in the refrigerator at 2°C to 8°C.
      Ensure the Wegovy pens you buy from Canada are never in the freezer. Frozen pens should be thrown out immediately.
