Episode 25 of The Pound of Cure Weight Loss podcast is titled, From 369.5 to 19,341: Lynsey’s journey to the top of Mount Kilimanjaro. The title comes from our Patient Story where we talk to Lynsey who came to us at 369.5 pounds. She lost a ton of weight after her gastric bypass but she didn’t stop there. She embraced physical activities that led her to the tallest free-standing mountain in the world! Her story is truly inspiring!

Our In the News segment features an article from US News that talks about another beneficial side effect of taking Zepbound. In clinical trials, Zepbound has been proven to drastically reduce sleep apnea. Does that mean that insurance companies will now approve the use of Zepbound for the treatment of sleep apnea? Tune in to find out!

BMI or Body Mass Index is a measure of body fat based on height and weight. It’s used, almost universally, by both the medical and insurance industries. In our Nutrition segment, Zoe explains why BMI is unreliable and, in her words, “trash”.

The Zepbound shortage has left a lot of people struggling without their medication. So, in our Economics of Obesity segment, we talk about the Wegovy coupon and how some patients may be able to switch from Zepbound to Wegovy to help get them through.

Finally, we answer 3 new questions from our listeners including, our thoughts on Poppi prebiotic soda, whether or not Medicare will cover revision surgery, and hypoglycemia while taking GLP-1 medication.
