GG Gharachedaghi says he\’s on weight-loss meds: No \’reason to hide\’

Golnesa GG Gharachedaghi has no problem being honest about her recent weight loss methods.

I don\’t see a reason to hide weight loss (medication) or a cosmetic procedure, the Shahs of Sunset star told Entertainment Tonight earlier this month. Just talk about it because there are so many people out there who want to do the same thing or want to know what you did.

Gharachedaghi, 41, revealed in February that he had been given injections of a semaglutide, a generic version of the popular drug Ozempic, to lose weight.

I\’m on weight loss shots honey, OK, she said in an Instagram video in February. I\’m not going to lie about it because I always keep the reality about what is false.

Unfortunately, due to my health, I had to have many steroid injections last year, which caused me to gain weight, added Gharachedaghi. I had a very, very, very hard time getting rid of that weight.

Ozempic is a type 2 diabetes drug, but some people have used it off-label as a weight-loss drug. While weight loss can be a side effect of Ozempic, the diabetes drug can have other side effects as well, including gastrointestinal problems such as nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, or constipation, according to the Drug List on NovoCare, a website of Novo Nordisk.

Other possible side effects may include pancreatitis, low blood sugar, kidney failure, allergic reactions or gallbladder problems, according to NovoCare.

The drug works by stimulating nerves in the brain to mimic the effect of eating food, leading to a reduction in appetite and a feeling of fullness sooner, previously reported.

The manufacturer of Ozempic, Novo Nordisk, told in a previous statement that we do not promote, suggest or encourage off-label use of our medicines.

Another drug with the same active ingredient as Ozempic, Wegovy, has been approved by the US Food and Drug Administration for use in chronic weight management for adults with obesity. With both drugs, patients must continue taking the drug to continue seeing effects.

Gharachedaghi clarified in an Instagram comment that he is NOT on Ozempic, but is on a semaglutide, a generic form of the diabetes drug.

She said she wants to be transparent about her use of weight loss drugs so people can know how she lost the pounds so quickly.

Obviously, I didn\’t look like this two months ago, she told Entertainment Tonight. So all of a sudden to lose nearly 30 pounds, I\’d be lying if I said I stopped drinking alcohol and, you know, all of a sudden I started working out, as some people like to say.

The use of Ozempic and similar weight loss drugs has sparked a lot of discussion online in recent months.

In April, Real Housewives of New Jersey star Dolores Catania came under fire on social media after she revealed on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen that she was taking a drug called Mounjaro.

Mounjaro, like Ozempic, is a type 2 diabetes drug that can lead to weight loss, although it is not intended to be used as a weight-loss drug, manufacturer Eli Lilly previously told

A Twitter commentator called Catania discussing the use of an unhealthy and triggering weight loss drug, while others praised its transparency.

The physician who prescribes Mounjaro in Catania, Dr. Rocio Salas-Whalen of New York Endocrinology, previously told that people should never make assumptions or jump to judgments about a particular drug\’s use. someone.

Whenever we see someone we might think doesn\’t need the drug, unless you\’re their doctor, you don\’t know their medical history, Salas-Whalen said. You don\’t know what medications they\’re on, you don\’t know their internal health and the reasoning why a patient… should be on these types of medications.
