In this episode, Dr. Miriam Zylberglait Lisigurski, MD, FACP, DABOM, a highly accomplished physician who is triple board certified in internal medicine, geriatrics and obesity medicine, joins us to discuss her experience in managing obesity and related comorbidities. As a physician who has been working on obesity for decades, she shares her insights into the various diets and therapies that have come and gone over the years. Dr. Miriam also talks about the challenges of tailoring treatment plans to suit each patient’s unique needs and realities.
During the conversation, Dr. Miriam drops a bombshell admission about how doctors are excited and happy when patients are officially diagnosed with diabetes. This shocking revelation shines a light on the systemic issues within the medical industry, where doctors and insurance companies benefit financially from treating chronic illnesses rather than preventing them. Dr. Miriam emphasizes the importance of education and understanding when it comes to managing obesity and related conditions, and how a permanent and appropriate change in lifestyle is necessary to truly combat this complex issue.
