Comparing Ozempic and Feel Great System for diabetes and weight control

Recently, Ozempic, originally formulated for type 2 diabetes management, has gained popularity as a weight loss aid. Its ability to diminish appetite and promote quick weight loss accounts for its rising appeal.

Article at a Glance:

  1. Ozempic is a medication developed for treating type 2 diabetes that's popular for weight loss purposes due to its ability to reduce hunger and assist in rapid weight loss.
  2. Ozempic is a GLP-1 receptor agonist that works by mimicking the action of GLP-1 in the body, slowing down food emptying from the stomach, reducing appetite, and promoting a feeling of fullness.
  3. While Ozempic can help individuals shed weight quickly, it is not a long-term solution for weight loss and comes with side effects, such as nausea, vomiting, and gastrointestinal upset, as well as more serious side effects such as acute pancreatitis, kidney damage, and hypoglycemia.
  4. The Feel Great System, utilizing Balance fiber matrix and Unimate yerba mate with intermittent fasting, is a natural method for managing glucose levels, decreasing insulin resistance, and enhancing sensitivity to leptin and ghrelin hormones.
  5. The Feel Great System focuses on balancing the glucose-insulin response and improving leptin and ghrelin resistance by including soluble and insoluble fiber, which helps to promote regularity, lower cholesterol levels, reduce inflammation, and improve gut health.

Managing glucose levels in the case of type 2 diabetes and for those looking seeking weight loss can be a challenging task for many individuals. The traditional approach has been to rely on medications like metformin and glyburide, that either increase insulin sensitivity or suppress appetite. However, a newer medication called Ozempic has entered the market, gaining popularity for its unique mechanism of action.

While it can help individuals shed weight quickly, it is not a long-term solution for weight loss and it does come with a cost of side effects. Dr. Janice Hwang, chief of division of endocrinology and metabolism at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill has stated, “this not a quick fix for someone looking to shed a few pounds. The drug has a number of side effects, including nausea, vomiting and gastrointestinal upset. There are also more serious side effects. the drug is not meant as a lifelong weight loss solution. Most of the time, the weight will come back.”

What is Ozempic and How Does it Work?

Ozempic is a medication approved in 2017 for medical use in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. Other alternatives to Ozempic include Victoza (liraglutide) and Bydureon (exenatide). Wegovy is another  brand names for semaglutide, was approved for use in weight management in 2021. Ozempic and Wegovy are basically the same drug, however Wegovy is available in slightly higher doses.

These drugs have gained popularity for its off-label use in weight loss and has recently become extremely hard to find in the U.S., after some celebrities and social media influencers touted it as a weight loss solution. Even prominent figures like Elon Musk have said he has used the medication for weight loss. Other celebrities' like Chelsea Handler, Kyle Richards and more have spoken about the diet trend.

Ozempic belongs to a class of medications called GLP-1 receptor agonists. GLP-1 is a hormone that is naturally produced in the gut and is responsible for regulating blood sugar levels.

Ozempic works by mimicking the action of GLP-1 in the body. It slows down the rate at which food is emptied from the stomach, reduces appetite, and promotes a feeling of fullness. This helps to reduce the amount of food that a person eats and leads to a decrease in calorie intake, which can result in weight loss.

Ozempic also stimulates the production of insulin in the pancreas, which helps to regulate blood sugar levels. The idea is that by reducing blood sugar levels, it helps to prevent complications associated with diabetes such as nerve damage, kidney damage, and blindness.

Side Effects of Ozempic

While the quick-fix appeal of using Ozempic for weight loss may seem tempting, it comes with significant risks and is not a long-term solution. Like any medication, Ozempic has its side effects. And Dr. Mark Hyman, a senior advisor for the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine cautions that with Ozempic., “they will need to continue taking the drug indefinitely to maintain the weight loss.”

Ozempic is an injection medication used to treat type 2 diabetes with common side effects that include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, and constipation. These minor uncomfortable side effects usually go away after a few days or weeks of taking the medication.

However, there are more serious side effects that have been reported with the use of Ozempic. These include acute pancreatitis, kidney damage, and hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) especially when it is used with other diabetes medications. One of the most serious side effects is the risk of thyroid tumors. Other side effects to look out for include allergic reactions, kidney problems, gallstones, and severe and sometimes fatal pancreatic problems. Symptoms of these conditions can range from skin rashes, hives, and itching, to sudden pain in the right upper abdomen and yellowing of the skin or eyes.

Ozempic vs The Feel Great System

While Ozempic has gained popularity for its unique mechanism of action, we should not ignore the more natural approach to managing glucose levels and achieving weight loss. The Feel Great System, specifically with Unimate yerba mate and Balance fiber, is an approach that includes the balancing the glucose-insulin response, as well as leptin and ghrelin connection.

The glucose-insulin response is the process by which the body regulates blood sugar levels. When we eat carbohydrates, they are broken down into glucose, which is absorbed into the bloodstream. This causes the pancreas to produce insulin, which helps to move glucose from the bloodstream into the cells where it can be used for energy. However, over time, the body can become resistant to insulin, which can lead to high blood sugar levels and diabetes.

Leptin and ghrelin are hormones that play a role in regulating appetite. Leptin is produced by fat cells and signals the brain to stop eating when we are full. Ghrelin is produced by the stomach and signals the brain to eat when we are hungry. When these hormones are not working properly, it can lead to overeating and weight gain.

Fiber is a type of carbohydrate that is not digested by the body. It passes through the digestive system largely intact, providing bulk and promoting regularity. In addition, fiber slows down the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream, which can help to regulate blood sugar levels.

Fiber has been shown to help lower cholesterol levels, reduce inflammation, and improve gut health. Additionally, fiber can help to promote feelings of fullness, which can lead to a reduction in calorie intake and weight loss. There are two types of fiber: soluble and insoluble. Soluble fiber dissolves in water and forms a gel-like substance in the digestive tract. This helps to slow down the absorption of glucose into the bloodstream and promotes feelings of fullness. Insoluble fiber does not dissolve in water and adds bulk to the stool. This helps to promote regularity and prevent constipation.
