How do medications like Ozympic get absorbed into the bloodstream when they’re injected into fatty parts of the body like the stomach or thigh?

It’s just fascinating to me. How does a tiny dose of medication going into a large mass of fat get absorbed?

Because there are capillaries leading to every part of your body. That’s why if you get a scratch it bleeds. If a medication is potent and needs to be absorbed slowly, it’s injected like that into adipose tissue. Injecting a medication directly into the blood has it traveling through all parts of the body more or less immediately.

Insulin; epinephrine; and many others all use fatty area injections

It’s easy to find; less painful and provides more “controlled” absorption.

Medicine right into the vein can cause issues being too rabidly avsilable
