Episode 489: Mission Slimpossible – Semaglutide for weight loss

In episode 489, Mike and James invite Adrienne to go over the evidence for weight loss with semaglutide. We find the evidence shows that weight loss is on average roughly 10 kg over the effect of placebo, however this comes at the expense and inconvenience (injection) of the medication and roughly 25% of people (over placebo) will have GI adverse effects.
