Remi Bader Opens Up About Ozempic
The influencer stated her doctor recommended she try Ozempic back in 2020 after it was approved by the FDA because she was pre-diabetic and gaining weight. “They said I need this. And I had a lot of mixed feelings,” she said. “A few months later I went off it and got into the bad binging.”
“I saw a doctor and they were like, it’s 100% because I went on Ozempic,” Bader stated. “It was making me think I wasn’t hungry for so long, I lost some weight. I didn’t wanna be obsessed with being on it long term. I was like, I bet the second I got off I’m gonna get starving again. I did, and my binging got so much worse. So then I kind of blamed Ozempic.”
