UNITED STATES, WASHINGTON (VOP TODAY NEWS) — Despite the fact that the pill for obesity has not yet been invented, scientists have created an injection that can cope with this problem.
Researchers from Imperial College London took up amazing development. They noticed that the administration of obese people to hormones that begin to be produced after the bypass surgery.
These hormones cause weight loss and loss of appetite.
Researchers led by Professor Tricia Tan decided to check whether injecting the same amounts of the same hormones will have the same effect as bariatric surgery.
To do this, they selected 15 volunteers who were given hormonal injections for 4 weeks, and on average got rid of 4.5 kg. Those who received a placebo threw off just 2.5 kg during the same period.
Following a low-calorie diet and directly bariatric surgery were still more effective – in 4 weeks, people lost 8.2 and 10.3 kg, respectively.
However, for those who are not able to follow a diet, and the operation may not be tolerated due to health reasons, hormonal injections can be a really working option that will help to lose at least a part of extra pounds.
