Ozempic Lawsuit Attorneys
A recent CNN news report has brought to light that patients using certain drugs—originally intended for diabetes but widely utilized for weight loss—have faced serious health complications. Regrettably, individuals consuming these drugs have suffered severe illness and developed gastroparesis, a condition characterized by stomach paralysis.
With multiple patients coming forward who experienced severe gastroparesis, or “paralyzed stomachs”, there is an ongoing investigation into claims that the manufacturer of diabetes or weight management drug Ozempic failed to adequately warn doctors and patients of severe and potentially long-lasting side effects associated with the medication. Contact our team of Texas Ozempic Lawsuit lawyers for a case evaluation.
How does Ozempic Work?
The diabetes medication Ozempic, along with its weight loss counterparts, Wegovy and Mounjaro, all employ the same active ingredient, semaglutide. These medications operate by imitating the action of GLP-1, a naturally occurring hormone in the body. A key function of GLP-1 is to regulate the pace at which food moves through the stomach, contributing to a prolonged sensation of fullness.
However, excessive slowing of stomach functions can lead to complications.
What is Gastroparesis or “Stomach Paralysis”?
Gastroparesis is a condition where the muscles in the stomach lose their ability to function properly, and become paralyzed. This causes food to stay in the stomach for extended periods of time. As a result, people with gastroparesis may feel full quickly, experience bloating, feelings of nausea, persistent vomiting, stomach pain and severe illness. It can also make it difficult for the body to extract essential nutrients from ingested food.
