We've all dreamed of a day when we're not going to be fat anymore.

For me, watching Defending Your Life really jump starts this dream because in that movie, they can eat whatever they want and not gain any weight.

And there are those among us who are basically like: "dude, take a walk around the block."

And then there are those who are like: "dude, you're gonna down the Grizz all by yourself?"

And then there are people who are just like: "gimme the shot."

According to Becker Hospital Review, Utah ranks 17th in the country for Ozempic queries per 100,000 residents. 

As far as how many Utahns are on these drugs, that answer isn't clear. We know Utah isn't in the top 10 in the country for usage.

According to FOX13, there are people who are unable to get Ozempic right now due to a shortage.

Dr. Richard Ferguson, president of the Black Physicians of Utah said:

“It’s gotten out in the mainstream, where someone says I can pay $800 up to $1,300 a month and now I can get into my old swimsuit, but they may not have a chronic obesity problem with associated risk factors like hypertension, high cholesterol and prediabetic state,” says Dr. Ferguson. “The manufacturer has not made enough to meet this demand, so that’s why there’s a shortage.” (full article)

The states with the most Ozempic and GLP-1 prescriptions are in the South. Kentucky, West Virginia, Louisiana, Mississippi.

Per Axios:

"The states with the highest prescribing rates are also among those with greater prevalence of diabetes and obesity, per CDC data, a rough indication that the medicines may be getting to areas where they are in greatest need while shortages, high price tags and insurance restrictions have limited their use."

It will be interesting to see how the supply of these GLP-1 drugs go up as demand continues to soar.
