91. Ozempic, Wegovy, Mounjaro, oh my! With Dr. Lina Qazi

Do you think miracle drugs exist?

I think most doctors (myself included) would say that they don't exist, but after hearing my guest, Dr. Lina Qazi, talk about some of the weight loss medications out on the market, we can at least say that science has produced some pretty incredible medicine!

Ozempic, Wegovy, and Mounjaro are just a couple of the numerous weight loss medications that obesity medicine doctors like Dr. Qazi prescribe their patients. They all work similarly in the sense that they're GLP-1 agonists, so what differentiates them? And if I'm a patient, how do I know which one is right for me?

In this episode, Dr. Qazi explains the differences between each of these drugs, from their mechanisms, to how they're administered, to when they're covered by insurance or not. She lays it all out very clearly so that patients can understand what they're being prescribed and why.

After all, as a board-certified family medicine physician who specializes in lifestyle medicine and obesity medicine, she is an expert in this field and has helped many many people lose upwards of 50 pounds with these drugs. She preaches the importance and power of making changes to lifestyle as a route to weight loss, and in this episodes speaks about cases where lifestyle changes and use of these medication helped her patients reach their healthy weight goals.
