Joe Rogan Discusses Kardashian’s Quest for Unattainable Bodies: Are They To Blame for Ozempic Tik Tok Shortages?

By Josh Whalen
June 4, 2023

In a recent episode of The Joe Rogan Experience, Rogan chats with Iliza Shlesinger about the Kardashian family and their effect on the female body image. During part of this conversation, they discuss the possibility of Khloe Kardashian taking Ozempic to achieve her new, fit figure. Some are questioning whether people wanting to achieve the Kardashian look are to blame for the Ozempic Tik Tok craze and possibly for the shortages of the drug. 

Ozempic on Tik Tok

When you get on TikTok and look at #ozempic or #ozempicweightloss there are videos with millions of views with people showing off their weight loss thanks to this semaglutide drug. The viral nature of Ozempic on Tik Tok has had more people looking to get a prescription, and the drug is flying off the shelves. Of course, the Kardashian family live their lives in the spotlight and are known for their good looks, but they aren't the only celebrities who the world is speculating about using semaglutide drugs like Ozempic or Wegovy. In fact, Elon Musk and Chelsea Handler have both openly admitted to using the drug, and it's safe to assume they aren't the only celebrities who have. 

@personalmd Anyone can lose weight! Stop using age, hormones, thyroid, and whatever other excuses you have used in the past. With all the new options to help people reach their weight goals, I encourage you to seek medical support. . #wegovy #semaglutide #weightloss #obesity #overweight #medicalweightloss #fyp ♬ Pretty Boy Swag - Soulja Boy

The Quest for Weight Loss

The desire people have for wanting to lose weight is not new. For decades, weight loss has been at the top of many women, and men's, list of goals. Dieting and weight loss came to the forefront more heavily during the 1960s with the introduction of Weight Watchers, and continued with a whole host of other weight loss solutions like diet pills, Slim Fast, Atkins, South Beach Diet, and many others that you may have even tried yourself. While some people have found plenty of success and weight loss from these avenues, others struggle to fully reach their health and weight loss goals. So it's no surprise that people are very interested in Ozempic, how it works, and how they can get their hands on some to finally shed those unwanted pounds and lead a healthier life. The Ozempic Tik Tok craze and subsequent shortage may simply be a symptom of the times we live it. It takes much less time and effort to learn about the latest trend in any category, thanks to social media and the connectedness it creates across the globe. And there is no denying the jaw-dropping results people can get from using Ozempic. 

What Exactly Is Ozempic?

Ozempic is the brand name for semaglutide. It is an injection that historically has been prescribed for people with type-2 diabetes, but has more recently been prescribed off-label for weight loss. There are other drugs on the market that are semaglutide under other brand names, including Wegovy and Rybelsus. In fact, Wegovy, was specifically developed for weight loss and has been given FDA approval for weight loss, so there is an alternative to Ozempic available on the market. 

Is There Still An Olympic Shortage?

The company that manufactures Ozempic and Wegovy, Novo Nordisk, warned of periodic supply constraints in February 2022 due to a higher demand as well as manufacturing constraints. In March 2023, the company announced that the drug was back on shelves in the United States after several months of shortage. 

How to Get Semaglutide

You must have a prescription from a doctor to get semaglutide, regardless of the brand name. Some people are going to their general physician, while others are turning to more modern telehealth services. Blokes offers virtual telehealth appointments for those interested in exploring whether or not semaglutide or other therapies are right for them.
