bariatric surgery success podcast

HOST: Registered Dietitian Nutritionist Dr.

Susan Mitchell 



It’s the dawn of a new era. First it was Ozempic and Wegovy and now there are more new weight loss drugs. They may be even better at treating obesity and achieving weight loss while also helping manage other diseases such as diabetes and high blood pressure. With some clinical trials promising weight loss of 20%, interest in these medications has skyrocketed! Along with the excitement of these new medications as hybrid treatments with bariatric surgery, there are side effects and nutrition concerns that you should be aware of and know how to handle. Bariatric dietitians Gayle and Isabel join me to share nutrition strategies specific to weight loss medications and bariatric surgery that you don’t want to miss and can empower your success.
