Researchers Identify a Link Between Ozempic and Gallbladder Disease

Ozempic is a medication that contains the active ingredient semaglutide. It is primarily used to reduce the risk of cardiovascular problems and treat type 2 diabetes in adults.

Ozempic mimics the glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1 RAs) hormone in the body, which helps regulate blood sugar levels by increasing the secretion of insulin.

In addition to Ozempic, semaglutide is also the active ingredient in Rybelsus tablets and Wegovy injections, which are also considered GLP-1 RAs.

However, recent studies have shown that drugs like Ozempic may increase the risk of gallbladder and biliary diseases.

GLP-1 RAs like Ozempic may be more likely to cause health issues if you:

  • Take high doses of the medication
  • Are on the medication for a prolonged period of time
  • Use the medication specifically for weight loss purposes

Because the warning labels on these medications failed to mention the gallbladder-related side effects, anyone who's been impacted may be able to pursue compensation from an Ozempic lawsuit.

Who Can File an Ozempic Gallbladder Lawsuit?

You may be able to file an Ozempic lawsuit if you or a loved one:

  • Used Ozempic, Wegovy, or another name brand semaglutide medication
  • Was later diagnosed with related gallbladder or bile duct issues

Insufficient warning labels on Ozempic and other semaglutide medications put users at unnecessary risk. However, filing a lawsuit may allow users to seek justice and compensation.

State laws, known as statutes of limitations, restrict how long you have to file a legal claim following an injury. It’s important to reach out to an experienced lawyer as soon as possible.
