Your Brain On... Ozempic Your Brain On

    • Science

Ozempic. Developed as diabetes medication. Adopted as a weight loss drug. Eyed for its potential neuroprotective effects.
Hollywood’s popularization of Ozempic as a way to lose weight has made it one of the most widely-discussed drugs of our time, and has put immense stress on supply chains, sometimes preventing its intended users — type-2 diabetics — from accessing the medication.
In this episode, we wade through the history, benefits, side-effects, neuroscience, and future of Ozempic, with the help of our guest: obesity and lipid physician Dr. Spencer Nadolsky.
We discuss:
• The origins of Ozempic and its predecessors
• How GLP-1 receptor drugs like Ozempic regulate appetite
• What the latest research and trials say about Ozempic’s effects (good and bad)
• Why we should quell the stigma borne from Ozempic’s brushes with celebrity culture
• Where studies on Ozempic and similar medications are going next
• How to ask your healthcare provider about Ozempic
‘Your Brain On’ is hosted by neuroscientists and public health advocates Ayesha and Dean Sherzai.
Drs. Ayesha and Dean are now welcoming patients via the Brain Health Institute: https://brainhealthinstitute.com/
‘Your Brain On... Ozempic’ • SEASON 2 • EPISODE 10 (SEASON 2 FINALE)
Your Brain On… will be back with Season 3, in August 2024!
