With respect to SGLT2 inhibitors please consider discussing the following paper with respect to patients that we had met with myocardial infarction. This seems to be a signal that it will help preserve ejection fraction and this high risk group.

I was just listening to the ROP October segment Reflections on Diet Culture and was frankly shocked by the overall message. Of course I am against shaming our patients, and "fat bias" as they put it, is a real thing. But for them to suggest that being over weight is not the most likely underlying reason for most of the deadly chronic diseases we see in medicine today, is I feel uniformed, at the least. Obesity leads to DM, HTN, CAD, CKD, CVAs, you name it, and is costing the health care system dearly. At one point Dr. James actually said she didn't want to tell her patients to lose weight because she knew it was too hard for them to do, and after all, we have medications we can give them. Is that the message we should be teaching? Common, we are supposed to be doing better than this. If the doctors are not giving patients the correct information, who is going to do it?

Hello - Thanks for much for taking the time to listen to the piece and share your thoughts. Agreed, it is a divergent viewpoint on weight management and we expected it to generate feedback; yours is noted and appreciated. As weight management and obesity are complex topics, we strive to approach it from various perspectives on the show. I'd invite you to check out our past pieces and paper reviews on the topic and stay tuned for more.
