Khloe Kardashian Denies Claim She Used Diabetes Drug For Weight Loss

After posting pictures of her Sorbet Magazine cover shoot to Instagram on January 3rd, Khloé Kardashian denied claims that she used diabetes medication to lose a drastic amount of weight.

Semaglutide, also known by the brand names Ozempic and Wegovy, suppresses the appetite of those taking it, allowing patients to lose almost a fifth of their body weight.

The drug, which has been approved by the FDA for type-2 Diabetes treatment, is manufactured by Novo Nordisk, a Danish pharmaceutical company.

Semaglutide costs over $900 a dose.
