The Dr. Francavilla Show

21-08-2023 • 27 mins

Despite the rapidly increasing demand for weight loss drugs, they have gotten hard and harder to get. Shortages of these crucial medications like Ozempic, Wegovy, Mounjaro and other weight loss drugs are creating a bigger issue in treating patients with diabetes and other weight-related diseases.

In this episode, I've once again invited Emily Sutton, PharmD to delve deeper into this issue. We will be discussing strategies on how to properly manage weight amidst disruptions in the supply chain of weight loss drugs. We will also talk about what “compounded” peptides are and if they are a good choice for you.

Emily Sutton, PharmD, CDECS is a clinical pharmacist specializing in treatment of chronic diseases with a focus on diabetes and obesity. She has worked with patients from all backgrounds in Vermont to provide equitable care and access to appropriate medications.
