My guest this week is Caleb Greer, FNP-C of Precision Regenerative and Functional Medicine.
In this episode, Caleb and I discuss Semaglutide, a GLP-1 agonist. If you or someone you know has been struggling with weight loss or have diabetes this is the episode to listen to. We discuss the benefits and drawbacks of GLP-1 agonists as well as who is a good candidate, benefits outside of weight loss, what conditions are contraindicated and how long should you take them?
