Play stupid games…
An Ozempic user will suffer from diarrhea for the rest of her life after sustaining a serious bowel injury — allegedly brought on by injections of the wildly popular weight loss drug.
The unidentified woman is one of a dozen people who have filed lawsuits against Novo Nordisk, parent company of Ozempic and sister drug Wegovy, since November, according to a report published Saturday by the Daily Mail.
All plaintiffs claimed the jabs caused gastroparesis — a rare condition that affects the spontaneous movement of the stomach muscles.
Gastroparesis leaves patients with nausea, bloating, and severe abdominal pain, per the Mayo Clinic. It can also cause vomiting, weight loss and malnutrition.
According to the suit, the woman was diagnosed with a “life-threatening bowel injury” after using Ozempic, prompting surgeons to subsequently perform an eight-hour operation in the hopes of repairing her colon.
While she managed to survive the scary medical episode, she was said to have been told by doctors that she will be in pain “for the rest of her life’ and “will never have a solid bowel movement again.”
The woman is now accusing Novo Nordisk of “failing to properly warn about the risk of gastroparesis on the drugs’ packaging.”
While the jabs have helped thousands of users slim down super-quick, a separate suit obtained by the Daily Mail alleges that one Wegovy user went a week without a bowel movement.
The plaintiff was rushed to hospital where doctors diagnosed her with gastroparesis.
The Post has contacted Novo Nordisk for comment on the multiple lawsuits,
Meanwhile, weight loss jabs manufactured by other pharmaceutical giants have allegedly caused similar issues.
A third lawsuit seen by the Daily Mail was purportedly filed against Eli Lilly, the maker of Mounjaro, another injectable that works in a similar manner to Wegovy and Ozempic.
According to the legal documents, a woman who used both Ozempic and Mounjaro was “diagnosed with gastroparesis which caused her to vomit so much that some of her teeth fell out.”
Vomiting so much your teeth fall out.
Maybe you should have tried diet and exercise, huh?
Do you think the average person understands medical jargon? Just go and read a multi page technical document? 99% of people have never even heard of gastroparesis before! I’m sure you read cover to cover every soft ware licensing agreement for every app you’ve ever used. Drug… https://t.co/Sk8dxsaIz6
