The importance of medical supervision in weight loss with Wegovy or Ozempic

It is crucial to emphasise that obtaining medications, particularly through online channels, carries risks such as the possibility of counterfeit drugs. While Wegovy can be valuable for weight loss, it requires strict medical supervision. Medical guidance is essential for health and success in weight loss with Wegovy. It is not a “miracle cure”; potential side effects and risks are significant. Therefore, medical supervision is essential. Reasons for this include:

  1. Dosage and Adjustment: An experienced physician can determine the correct dosage of Wegovy based on your specific needs and medical history, achieving optimal effectiveness with minimal side effects.
  2. Monitoring of Side Effects: Some individuals may experience side effects such as nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea when starting Wegovy. A medical professional can closely monitor these side effects and advise on how to manage them.
  3. Health Monitoring: Regular medical check-ups are important to ensure that Wegovy does not negatively impact your overall health. This includes monitoring your blood sugar levels, blood pressure, and other relevant parameters.
  4. Weight Loss Monitoring: Medical supervision can help you establish your weight loss goals and track your progress. Adjusting your diet and lifestyle may be a crucial part of your treatment plan.
  5. Risk Assessment: Wegovy can cause rare but serious side effects, such as gastric paralysis and pancreatitis. A physician can advise you on the risks and help you decide if the medication is suitable for you, taking into account your specific situation.
