Scott Disick finally decided to seek help for his Ozempic use after shocking fans and leaving loved ones fearing for his health due to his dramatic weight loss, sources have claimed.

The reality TV star, 40, who shares three children with ex Kourtney Kardashian, sparked concern when he was photographed looking noticeably slimmer last month.

Fans were worried that his emaciated appearance was the result of an undisclosed illness or drug use, but sources told DailyMail.com that he was using Ozempic in a desperate attempt to get rid of his “dad bod.”

Now Scott, nicknamed ‘The Lord’, has reportedly turned to a nutritionist to help him address his weight fluctuation following the ‘public outcry’ over his new look.

But sources say the “public outcry” was a wake-up call to seek help after using Ozempic, and Scott turned to a nutritionist for help with his weight; In the photo he looks healthier on March 28.

“Scott recognized he needed to stop taking Ozempic after seeing the photos of himself and the public outcry over his weight loss,” an exclusive source told DailyMail.com.

‘He thought he looked good because he was thinner again, not realizing that this was unhealthy.

“Now he is working with a nutritionist to get back to normal and not reach the size he was.”

They added: “Scott has been incredibly handsome and fit his entire life and he’s not having a very good time accepting that age is catching up with him.”

DailyMail.com has contacted representatives for Scott for comment.

Ozempic has been popularized by a large number of celebrities, including Sharon Osbourne and Oprah Winfrey, who have lost weight with this wonder drug.

Last month, DailyMail.com reported that Scott had turned to Ozempic in a bid to manage his weight after packing on the pounds due to a back injury following a car accident in 2022.

Fans expressed concern when he was photographed looking noticeably thinner after a meal with his friends at Catch Steak restaurant in West Hollywood.

Less than a week later, he was photographed looking haggard while out with his three children Mason, 14, Penelope, 11, and Reign, nine, as they went out to dinner at Nobu.

“He is not sick and does not do hard drugs,” a source told DailyMail.com at the time. ‘Kourtney would never allow Scott to spend so much time with his children if he was mired in addiction.

‘Scott started taking Ozempic because he was having serious problems with his weight gain. Last year around this time he looked fat.

Scott’s well-being became a topic of conversation last year after an episode of the popular Hulu reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians.

Khloe Kardashian, 39, visited the businessman to talk about his health. During the episode, Scott admitted that he hadn’t been doing the physical therapy needed to recover from his back injury and later told his doctor, “I haven’t been able to run.” I gained weight.’

Khloé stated, “I think Scott needs a little pep talk because this is probably the sickest thing I’ve ever seen from him.” He can barely move and everything is on his back, so that wouldn’t make anyone feel good.

Scott later admitted that he had “gained a lot of weight…because of my back.”

Scott, who lost both his parents in 2013 and 2014, has also openly struggled with substance abuse and alcoholism in the past.

He was hospitalized for alcohol poisoning in June 2020 and before that had a near-fatal overdose in 2014 after taking almost an entire bottle of sleeping pills after a wild night of drinking and partying.

Finally, his ex-girlfriend Kourtney convinced him to enter rehab for a month-long stay.

The star made changes to his diet in 2020 after discovering he had low testosterone levels.

In the United Kingdom and the United States, Ozempic is available as a prescription-only medication, but the cost in the United States is astronomical and can reach $1,700 a month.

Nutrition expert Dr. Mark Hyman recently shared with DailyMail.com that the unforeseen side effects of the much-hyped “miracle weight loss shot” are terrifying.

The first was intestinal obstruction, which occurs when food becomes stuck in the intestines, where, if left untreated, it can cut off the blood supply and cause death.

The second was inflammation of the pancreas, which can also be fatal.

It comes after analysis showed that fat loss injections such as Ozempic and Zepbound have been linked to more than 100 deaths in the US.

Millions of Americans are now prescribed weight-loss injections.
