The World Health Organization (WHO) has issued a global warning about counterfeit versions of Ozempic, a drug used for weight loss despite being primarily for treating type 2 diabetes.

The WHO cautions that these fake medications could be harmful to health.

They advise people to obtain Ozempic from trustworthy sources like doctors, rather than risky online or social media platforms.

The active ingredient in Ozempic helps manage blood sugar in diabetes and also suppresses appetite, making it popular for weight loss among non-diabetic individuals.

Counterfeit Ozempic has been seized in several countries, prompting concerns about health risks associated with these fake products.
