Recently, once again one of his fans asked on Twitter that he looks great, is he doing weight lifting and healthy diet. Responding to this question, Musk tweeted, “Fasting and Wegovy”.
What is Wegovy
The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved the drug Wegovi last year as a weight loss drug. Although, it is used in the treatment of diabetes, but now it is fast becoming famous as a weight loss medicine. Vigovy is an updated version of Danish pharmaceutical company Novo Nordisk’s Semaglutide drug that balances the hormones that cause hunger in the body and slows down digestion, thereby reducing hunger for a long time. This medicine is injected once a week inside the obese person. This drug reduces 15 to 20 percent weight in 68 weeks and its effects last for a very long time.
only these people can use
This medicine is given only to those people who are very obese and whose weight is above the prescribed standard of obesity or those people who are suffering from diseases like type 2 diabetes or high cholesterol. It can be used under the advice and direction of the doctor.
According to the American website ‘Variety’, many celebrities have started using this very expensive drug for weight loss, due to which its shortage has also started. The cost of a month’s dosage of this medicine is said to be $ 1,200 (about 98 thousand Indian rupees) $ 1,500 (about one lakh 23 thousand Indian rupees).
For weight loss, however, along with the use of this drug, the FDA recommends people strictly follow a low-calorie healthy diet to exercise. After the initial use of this medicine, people have minor side effects like vomiting or diarrhea, which get better after some time.
