What does Ozempic do?
Ozempic helps people suffering from type two diabetes to manage their blood sugar levels with a once-a-day injection. Ozempic is a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist, also known as GLP-1 RA, meaning that it is NOT insulin. GLP-1 is a natural hormone released by the body after you have eaten, and by using Ozempic you will be providing your body with a simulation of this hormone that can reduce blood sugar and help to prevent cardiovascular conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, and heart disease.
How do you use Ozempic?
Ozempic is easy to use, and you can refer to the full instructions for use in the Patient Information Leaflet provided with your medication. Here are our step-by-step instructions.
Step 1 -
Attach a new needle and check your pen. You should make sure your pen contains clear and colourless Ozempic. You should then screw on a new needle and pull off both needle caps.
Step 2 -
Check the flow of your pen. Each new pen will need the flow of medication to be checked. Turn the dose selector to select the flow check symbol which you can check in the patient information leaflet. Press and hold the dose button and repeat until a drop of medication appears.
Step 3 -
You will then need to select your dosage. To do this you will need to turn the dose selector until the dose counter shows your dose, depending on what dosage will be best for you. Dosages include 0.25 mg, 0.5 mg, and 1.0 mg.
Step 4 -
Now you can inject your dose. Insert the needle into the arm, stomach, hips or thighs, then press and hold down the dose button. After the dose counter reaches 0, hold for at least six seconds to make sure you receive the full dose.
Step 5 -
Then remove the needle. You should also replace the outer needle. Carefully remove and dispose of the needle into a sharps bin. Put the pen cap back on.
