Is it even a fair fight?

When it comes to weight loss or perhaps, we should say sustained weight loss behavior change just doesn’t cut it. More often than not after losing all the weight the person goes back to their old behavior and regains the weight. Of course, there are exceptions to this but based on numerous studies this is more the norm. This is one reason we’ve never been a huge fan of any...

The Battle Rages On

Before I get into my thoughts and commentary on the results released by Lilly and Novo Nordisk let’s start with a nice short rant. Will someone please tell these analysts and uninformed journalists that Wegovy and Ozempic are basically the same drug used for two different indications, one for diabetes the other for weight loss.

The Wacky World of CGM Wannabes

Not sure what’s up but there’s been a plethora of news in the world of CGM wannabes so let’s get right too it. 1. Rockley Photonics files for bankruptcy.

It’s not like this issue is hurting toys sales but it...

The times we live in

Way back in the day before streaming services like Netflix, Hulu and YouTube TV. Way way back before cable even people used to sit around their TV’s watching shows like 60 Minutes thinking they were watching the truth. That Dan Rather and Morley Safer we’re telling us the truth. Well, if you believe the nonprofit public health advocacy group the Physicians Committee Novo Nordisk bought a segment that aired on...

Danger Will Robinson

Not sure how many readers remember the TV show Lost in Space, but it had one of the coolest Robot characters who would on occasion go around saying “Danger Will Robinson” – again this is worth looking up on YouTube. I thought of this while reading an email promoting the latest diabetes device scam GlucoTrack, a stock which is deservedly down almost 70% over the last year. Here is just...
