Women taking Ozempic are noticing more unusual and unflattering side effects while receiving the weight loss injection.

Slimmers who lost up to 40 pounds say their butts are now “completely gone” and have shrunk so much they can “feel every bone.”

Some even said the problem, called ‘Ozempic butt’, was so bad that they constantly covered their butts.

Meanwhile, a growing number of women say their hair is “falling out in clumps” and posting tearful videos from the shower where they hold handfuls of stray hair.

A bride-to-be also posted saying she fears she will be almost bald on her wedding day in just four months.

None of the symptoms are officially recognized as a side effect of Ozempic, but doctors say that Ozempic buttocks is expected to be due to the rapid weight loss caused by the drug, which leaves the skin very little time to adapt, which which causes it to sink.

The backside is one of the main areas where subcutaneous fat (or fat directly under the skin) accumulates, which is lost quickly during weight loss.

It also contains a group of three large muscles, called the glutes, which can also shrink if someone takes the drug without exercising and following a high-protein diet.

The FDA is currently investigating reports that Ozempic has caused permanent hair loss or alopecia, but is not yet requiring it to be listed on a label.

How Ozempic can cause permanent or temporary hair loss is not well understood, although several theories have been suggested by experts.

In one of them, it is suggested that the action that Ozempic has in the brain can trigger changes in the levels of stress hormones, such as cortisol, which could cause a temporary closure of hair follicles, causing them to lose hair and not have hair. grow another.

There are also suggestions that nutritional deficiencies caused by the drug could also cause hair loss as the body seeks to conserve resources.

It is unclear how Ozempic may cause alopecia or permanent hair loss.

And this person pictured above also reported hair loss while taking weight loss medication.

On the left, this woman said she had started losing her hair after losing 45 pounds on weight-loss medication, adding that she was worried about going bald by her wedding. On the right is another image shared online of hair loss related to weight loss medications.

Hundreds of women talk about both side effects on Reddit, TikTok and other social media platforms where they share their stories.

In one case, a woman who lost 40 pounds from Ozempic said online: ‘I was talking to a fellow Ozempic user today about how she was having trouble finding new jeans.

‘I mentioned that I feel like my butt has completely disappeared and she completely agreed. Not only is it gone, but it also has a flap.

“They talk a lot about ‘Ozempic’s face,’ but so far the biggest problem for me has been Ozempic’s butt.”

Another woman who lost 70 pounds on the drug added, “My butt is gone.” I always had a white girl butt, but now it’s gone, like flat.

‘I was trying on the swimsuit because now I have to clean the clothes and see which ones fit me. My butt was SHOCKING… I’m going to have to cover it up.’

Doctors say sagging skin can be corrected through weight-lifting exercises, such as squats and lunges, which can help someone build muscle to fill the space.

But they warn that the skin could still take a year or more to recover, and some doctors recommend patients use BBL and skin tightening procedures.

There are also suggestions that weight-bearing exercises can increase the thickness of the skin, helping it to tighten and prevent sagging.

Likewise, there are also reports of women saying they are losing their hair while taking Ozempic or similar weight loss medications.

Among the patients who reported this was a bride-to-be who had lost 45 pounds while taking Wegovy in recent months.

Posting photos of her hair loss online, she said: ‘My hair has been falling out in clumps and my scalp has been very sensitive. [But] meterMy wedding is in four months.

‘I just started a treatment with rogaine, rosemary oil and others… Do you think this will be enough to start hair growth and stop hair loss in time in September? Or will this just make the shedding worse? Please help!’

In a second case, a woman posted a picture online of her losing most of her hair and said: ‘Is anyone else losing hair like crazy?’ I’m getting bold.

Influencer Claudia Oshry, 29, even came forward to say her hair fell out in clumps while taking Ozempic, even though she lost 70 pounds.

Writing on Instagram, he said: ‘[My hair] he didn’t lose weight, but he started WAKE UP, which is literally worse. Overall, I would say it took us between six and nine months to get back to normal.’

The FDA revealed in January that it was investigating these reports and establishing whether there was a link to Ozempic.

“The appearance of a drug on this list does not mean that the FDA has concluded that the drug has the listed risk,” they noted.

“This means that the FDA has identified a potential safety issue, but it does not mean that the FDA has identified a causal relationship between the drug and the listed risk.”

Evidence so far suggests that semaglutide does not bind directly to hair follicles, but the drug has been linked to an increased risk of thyroid problems, which could have a link to hair loss.

Ozempic and similar weight loss medications have gained popularity in the US, with an estimated 8.2 million prescriptions issued in 2021.

Ozempic is only approved for use in diabetic patients, but many doctors also prescribe it “off-label” to those looking to lose a few pounds.

MedSpas say they are seeing an increase in requests for the drug during the current months amid the impending arrival of summer.
