Type 2 Diabetics Encouraged To Refill Injectables Early To Avoid Delays

A trend for weight loss started on social media is impacting Type 2 diabetics.

Once-weekly injectables like Ozempic and Trulicity lower a diabetic’s A1C and cause food to leave the stomach slower, allowing users to feel fuller longer, thus promoting weight loss.

The influencers on social media are encouraging those meds for people wanting to lose weight, causing pharmacies to run out faster.

Pharmacists recommend that diabetics not wait until their last dose has been injected to get the refill called in to ensure plenty of time for the medications to be restocked.
