An appetite suppressant can help overcome obesity, according to a large-scale international study.
The study, published in the New England Journal of Medicine, involved almost two thousand people – writes BBC News.
Some participants received an injection of semaglutide once a week, others received a placebo, or drug-free drug, and members of both groups were advised on proper diet and exercise.
A eye glutenot is also used to treat type 2 diabetes, but has been used at a higher dose than in the current study.
It works by mimicking a hormone (GLP1) that is released after lactating meals.
The results showed that subjects receiving semaglutide lost an average of 15 kilograms and members of the control group lost 2.6 kilograms over the 15 months of the study.
Thirty-two percent of the members of the eye-glutidide group lost one-fifth of their body weight, while the same proportion in the other group was less than 2 percent.
