In recent times, a health revolution has been quietly unfolding in the United States, with promising implications for the world at large. At the forefront of this transformative shift are GLP-1 agonists—medications originally designed to address diabetes but now proving to be potent solutions for a myriad of health issues.

Beyond Diabetes: A Holistic Approach to Health

GLP-1 agonists are not just targeting diabetes; they're making waves in the realms of heart disease and kidney disease. The impact is not limited to weight loss; it extends to an overall improvement in health outcomes. The astonishing weight loss results have even led to a decline in stocks for dialysis centers, signaling a positive shift in people's health.

A Paradigm Shift in Kidney Health

Recent trials focusing on chronic kidney disease have culminated in unexpected outcomes. The early completion of a study two weeks ahead of schedule has sent shockwaves through the stock market, particularly in the dialysis sector. As more people experience improved health, the need for dialysis is decreasing, prompting a reassessment of the healthcare landscape.

Cardiovascular Benefits and Extended Lifespan

In addition to kidney health, studies have demonstrated a significant reduction in cardiovascular events among those using GLP-1 medications. This revelation opens the door to a potential increase in lifespan, with projections suggesting that individuals could live 10, 15, or even 20 years longer.

The Power of GLP-1 Agonists: A Class Apart

As excitement builds around the potential of GLP-1 agonists, there's anticipation for a third-generation drug that targets all three receptors, promising to be the most robust solution yet. The transformative impact of this class of drugs extends beyond immediate health concerns, offering a pathway to a longer and healthier life.

The Role of Lifestyle in Longevity

While pharmaceutical advancements are noteworthy, it's essential to acknowledge the role of lifestyle factors in overall well-being. The average lifespan in the U.S. is often attributed to dietary choices, and there is a call for a shift towards healthier habits. Adopting a more mindful approach to eating, akin to certain European societies, could contribute to an increased average lifespan.

Metabolic Syndrome and the Importance of Balance

The underlying cause of many health issues lies in metabolic syndrome, characterized by high insulin levels and constant gut processing throughout the day. The traditional approach of infrequent, substantial meals is contrasted with modern habits of constant snacking, leading to inflammation and insulin imbalance. Interventions like ketone and fasting diets are emerging as potential solutions to address these imbalances.

Balancing Pharmaceuticals with Holistic Health Practices

While the potential of GLP-1 agonists is undeniable, it's crucial to approach their use with caution. The emphasis should be on a holistic approach to health, including proper nutrition, adequate sleep, regular exercise, and stress management. Positioning pharmaceuticals as the sole solution can overlook the importance of foundational lifestyle changes.

In Conclusion: A Bright Future for Health and Wellness

The ongoing health revolution, fueled by the advancements in GLP-1 agonists, presents a promising future for individuals seeking improved well-being. As we navigate this transformative landscape, it's imperative to strike a balance between pharmaceutical interventions and holistic health practices, ensuring a comprehensive approach to longevity and vitality.

In this episode, you'll discover:

  • GLP-1 Agonists Revolutionizing Health: GLP-1 agonists, initially designed for diabetes, are proving to be a game-changer for heart and kidney health, leading to unexpected benefits such as weight loss and a decline in the need for dialysis.
  • Extended Lifespan and Cardiovascular Benefits: Studies show that individuals using GLP-1 medications may experience a significant reduction in cardiovascular events, potentially extending lifespans by 10 to 20 years, marking a paradigm shift in healthcare.
  • Holistic Approach to Wellness: While pharmaceutical advancements are promising, the blog emphasizes the importance of a balanced lifestyle, incorporating healthy habits like mindful eating, regular exercise, and stress management to complement the benefits of GLP-1 agonists for overall well-being.

Dr. Chad Deal:

There's a revolution happening in the U S, but soon, I think more in the world because of all these GLP one agonist there. They're not just curing diabetics. They're, they're curing heart disease, kidney disease, not just the weight loss. It, there are so many people losing so much weight on those medicines that, that kidney stocks, meaning stocks at dialysis centers.

Dr. Latt Mansor:

I don't know if you saw this, those stocks are starting to crash. Because so many people are getting healthier, they're required... Yeah, I know, it was two weeks ago, two weeks ago, they announced that the, the, the trial finished early based on, on the kidney chronic kidney disease.

Dr. Chad Deal: 

The stock market is responding, they're saying dialysis centers are kind of freaking out, but we're going, we're going to have less people on dialysis.

And of course that study a couple of months ago showing that was like a 20 percent reduction in all, all cardiovascular events or something like that with the people in the GLP 1. What you're going to see, I think that one drug, that one drug or that class of drugs, I should say, because there's a third generation one that's finishing up phase two that should be out soon that hits all three receptors will be the strongest one.

What you're going to see is I think people will live 10, 15, 20 years longer simply because, because in the U. S. it's our diet that makes us die in the 70s. There's no reason why the average shouldn't be in the 90s. And I think if everybody were thin, like you see some European societies, some though they're becoming more like America.

Unfortunately, because of the processed foods, et cetera, but you're seeing, you're gonna see people live way longer. And why is that? It's the entire, as you know, metabolic syndrome, high insulin levels constantly our gut processing food throughout the day. We weren't meant to eat seven times a day. We were, we were meant to like, you know, wait till we eat and then finally have a lot of food and then wait and then finally have a lot of food.

That's, that's. That's, that's just how we evolution. That's how our bodies were made. And because we eat constantly, that inflammation, the gut and insulin is constantly being thrown out there. And then what do you have? You have, you have all that syndrome X, high blood pressure always seems to go with heart disease, always seems to go with high blood diabetes, always seems to go with high cholesterol.

All these things kind of seem to go together and that ketone and or fasting diet seems to fix it. Well, what a beautiful thing if you can assist yourself with it. Right. What, what, what a, what a beautiful concept. Yeah,

Dr. Latt Mansor:

absolutely. I know. I, I absolutely agree that, you know, GLP one drug Ozempic could be a very useful tool.

The problem I have with the drug is when healthy people use it for weight loss. Right. And the problem I also have with the marketing of the drug itself, which, you know, I can, we can say for a lot of pharmaceutical company, right. When they release Those statements saying that obesity, the main cause of obesity, is genetics.

That there is no hope whatsoever, and this drug is the hope. And on top of that, with their website, you know, officially just listing that one of the side effects, while it has been shown in animals, and not in humans, yet. It does increase risk of developing thyroid cancer. So those things taken into account, like drugs, as many, you know, are in the market, there will always be some form of side effects.

Because you are trying to acutely correct something that has been chronically, you know, dysfunctional. So, so for me, it's like, yes, getting that, that foundation in place, nutrition, sleep exercise, movement and, and stress management. And then utilize, utilize supplements, tools, you know, bariatric surgery, all these are different tools, but to position it as one and only hope for people, especially people preying on people's insecurity, preying on people's false perception of attractiveness from social media, the instant gratification, the fact that they thought that everything is just, you know, very instant.

I think that It has to be corrected somehow.
