101. Don't Take Ozempic for Menopause Weight Gain
If you've been listening to the podcast for a while now, you've probably heard me and a couple of my guests talk about Ozempic. It's an injectable weight loss medication that has been in the news a lot as of recent times, and it's become so popular that, in many places, it's hard to find in pharmacies.
So if it's this popular it must be a miracle drug, right?
Well, in certain situations it can really help people lose weight, and it's worth giving it credit where it's due. However, it's concerning to me when I see the New York Times covering the drug as a premier solution to menopausal weight gain, without talking about any of the negative side effects or downsides.
So in this episode of the Vibrant-MD Podcast, we'll take a look at what the article from the NYT got right, what it got wrong, and what I recommend for someone who is serious about tackling menopausal/perimenopausal weight gain head-on. I think you'll be happily surprised by the simplicity and beauty of my recommendations compared to potentially spending several hundred to thousands of dollars each month on Ozempic.
