Gastroparesis (Stomach Paralysis) Cases Reported After Using Weight Loss Drugs

A recent news report from CNN revealed that patients who used the drugs – some of which were originally intended for diabetes but widely used for weight loss, and all of which contain hormone inhibitors such as semaglutide and tirzepatide – became severely ill and experienced paralysis of their stomach – a condition known as gastroparesis.

Gastroparesis, also known as delayed gastric emptying, is a condition where the muscles in the stomach become paralyzed. This causes food to stay in the stomach for longer than usual. As a result, people with gastroparesis may feel full quickly, experience bloating, nausea, vomiting, stomach pain and severe illness. It can also make it difficult for the body to get the nutrients it needs from food.

Novo Nordisk – Maker of Ozempic – Under Scrutiny

Douglas and London is investigating claims against the makers of Ozempic and other related medications, including Novo Nordisk and Eli Lilly and Co., for failure to adequately warn doctors and patients of the potential for gastroparesis as a result of taking diabetes and weight loss drugs containing the active ingredient semaglutide or tirzepatide.
