Jillian Michaels has no business pushing out an anti-Ozempic narrative cause she’s a personal trainer and not a REAL medical expert — this, according to Dr. Terry Dubrow.
We got the “Botched” star on “TMZ Live” Tuesday … he pops off on Jillian’s stance that society will find themselves dependent on the weight loss drug — saying we should, in fact, be championing something that treats the disease of obesity.
Terry tells us these drugs have been around for decades and are totally safe … making them a viable option in reducing body fat and lowering the mortality rate.
In fact, he compares the anti-O argument to life-saving medical treatments … saying it would be like de-influencing people from undergoing chemo for cancer.
He does agree with Jillian that diet and exercise are critical to staying healthy … but says belittling weight loss drugs is sending out the wrong message — urging others to listen to their physicians for proper scientific and medical info.
You’ll remember … last week, JM accused Oprah of hopping on the celeb bandwagon of promoting Ozempic … claiming she was doing so for financial gain.
It’s important to note … there’s no solid evidence that proves this. Bottom line — Dr. Terry is fine with people who decide Ozempic (or other related drugs) are right for them.
