A new study by diabetes awareness website Diabetes Strong reveals that “How to get Ozempic” is the most googled question about the medication.

The top 40 most asked questions were discovered from the SEO website Ahrefs, with all questions then being sorted by category and the average monthly searches aggregated by topic. Ozempic is a branded medicine used to treat people with type 2 diabetes, with the active ingredient semaglutide. Semaglutide and liraglutide are prescription-only medications with specific restrictions on who can take them.

Semaglutide aids the production of insulin in the pancreas when blood sugar is high and helps prevent the liver from making and releasing too much sugar. It also slows down food leaving your stomach, which has raised safety concerns for patients going under anaesthesia in a University of Texas Health study.

“How much is Ozempic?” is the third most asked question, with 40,300 average monthly searches. Wegovy is the brand of semaglutide available on the NHS and is also available privately, with prices being set at the discretion of the prescriber.
