Celebrities & Influencers Were Losing Weight – What Could Go Wrong?
Turns Out – Plenty.
Quick weight loss without diet or exercise. A drug that was FDA approved. Easy-to-get prescriptions from your doctor (just ask!). Seemingly everyone from Hollywood to TikTok has benefitted from Ozempic. And no big risks … except for the ones that weren’t mentioned on the packaging: Gastroparesis, Gastric Obstruction and Pancreatic Cancer.
If you used Ozempic or Wegovy to lose weight and have been diagnosed with stomach paralysis (gastroparesis), blockage of the intestinal tract or pancreatic cancer please contact us right away.
Gastroparesis is a serious condition that is usually accompanied by severe and recurrent vomiting. It is thought to be caused by Ozempic’s active ingredient, semaglutide, which is found in Wegovy in even higher amounts.
A Company Bigger than LVMH. A GDP Bigger than Denmark.
Ozempic and Wegovy are manufactured by Novo Nordisk, a pharmaceutical company based out of Denmark. Since Ozempic was approved by the FDA in 2017, the company has spent billions promoting it to consumers through digital advertising and TV commercials (O-O-O-Ozempic). The drug has also been used by numerous celebrities and social influencers, who have offered nothing but praise for the “miracle” weight loss drug.
Ozempic and Wegovy have become blockbuster drugs for the company.
The numbers speak for themselves:
increase in sales of all obesity care products (Ozempic, Wegovy, Saxenda)
In 2023, Novo Nordisk’s share rose 2.1% in Copenhagen, boosting its market capitalization to the equivalent of almost $425 billion (USD), while LVMH (Louis Vuitton) fell 0.8% in Paris, valuing the company at about $420 billion (USD). Now, Novo Nordisk is more valuable than high fashion brand Louis Vuitton.
Not only that, but as of 2023, the company’s market value exceeds the GDP of Denmark. (Yes, an entire country.)
All of this profit at the expense of women.
If You Had Known the Real Risks of Ozempic, Would You Still Have Taken It?
Just to be clear: we aren’t trying to take drugs out of the hands of diabetics who need them to manage their health and live their lives. We also aren’t trying to prevent women from losing weight and/or living healthier lives. What we want is to have more transparency about how drugs, like Ozempic and Wegovy, can affect your health so you can make an informed decision.
Novo may have actively hidden the real, more serious side effects of Ozempic because they didn’t want to “scare” women off from using the drug. I mean, saying someone may get cancer from using your drug isn’t going to help those sales.
Some of the problems women are experiencing from Ozempic and Wegovy that aren’t on the label (but should be) include:
- Gastroparesis (stomach paralysis)
- Stomach/Digestive Blockages
- Pancreatic Cancer
Since Novo wasn’t honest, you weren’t able to make an informed decision about the risks you were willing to take for Ozempic or Wegovy. And really – was it worth it?
Demand for Wegovy Exceeds Supply.
When Wegovy started to take off due to the massive consumer marketing and celebrity/influencer endorsements, Novo literally could not make the drug fast enough.
So, to satiate the wild demand, physicians started prescribing Ozempic, even though it was only FDA approved for type 2 diabetes, for weight loss. As more and more doctors took advantage of this “loophole,” the result was disturbing: diabetics could not get their hands on the drug, even though they needed it to manage their diabetes.
Yes, you read that right: massive over-prescribing of Ozempic for weight loss caused a shortage of the drug and diabetics, the people who actually need Ozempic to manage a very serious life-long health condition, could not get the drug.
“You Can’t Be Too Rich or Too Thin”
Real talk: every woman has been concerned about her weight at some point during her life. Even the most “perfect looking” women have dealt with crippling anxiety issues about weight. We live in a culture where women are expected – praised even – to be skinny.
Flip on your favorite TV show or movie or open up TikTok or Instagram and you will be assaulted by images of “perfect” women who just make it seem so easy, so right to be thin. You would be “more desirable” to others and feel “so much happier” – if only you were skinny. Our image-obsessed society has tied a woman’s value to her physical appearance, and pharma companies like Novo took advantage of that social narrative to push their drugs – and line their pockets.
It’s just gross. (And for the record, you are beautiful as you are – no weight loss needed.)
Why Should You File an Ozempic Lawsuit?
Okay, let’s start with the elephant in the room: money. Yes, compensation is part of what someone typically receives as part of a lawsuit. Yes, that money is very important – it can help you pay for costly medical bills (especially if you have a life-long condition from your Ozempic use), cover expenses due to lost wages, or go toward something good in the world, such as a charity or a college fund for your kids or even grandkids.
Bottom line: extra money in your pocket can help make your life easier, and we are okay with that.
But let’s not forget the higher calling here.
- Lawsuits are one of the ONLY ways that “normal” people can hold a large, powerful corporation accountable for harming them.
- Lawsuits can stop the cycle of corporations hurting women and force them to change for the better. (ex: J&J removed their cancer-causing baby powder from the market)
- Lawsuits can expose the inner workings of a company, and help the public understand what really happened. (Sometimes even juicier than a true crime podcast.)

We’re Here to Help.
A Case for Women was founded in 2016 to help educate women about serious health problems associated with drugs or devices (one of our first areas to work on was Essure) and how they can create positive, lasting change through lawsuits. Over the years, we have been privileged to connect thousands of women with law firms that not only fight hard to change corporate greed, but also to achieve significant monetary awards on behalf of the women. (We get it, money is still part of this equation.)
In that time, we have helped women:
- Hurt by the Paragard IUD
- Suffering from cancer after using hair relaxer products
- Take their power back after sexual assault in an Uber or Lyft
And we’re not done yet. We are always here (24/7/365, weekends, holidays, whatever) to help women access the civil justice system and to fight back against greedy corporations that are more concerned with making a buck than protecting women’s health.
The power is in your hands. Don’t waste it.
