A recent survey by the Kaiser Family Foundation found that the diabetes drug Ozempic, which works by mimicking a hormone that regulates blood sugar, has been effective in helping patients lose weight. The survey also revealed that many patients were able to reduce their use of insulin and other diabetes medications while taking Ozempic. However, some experts caution that more research is needed to fully understand the long-term effects of the drug.
