When it comes to weight loss, the best remedy, more often than not, is the long-drawn diet and exercise program that makes you work hard, but guarantees results. If things came easy, we wouldn’t be able to fully appreciate them, would we?
On that note, Thomas Wadden, director of the Center for Weight and Eating Disorders at the University of Pennsylvania, has now gone on record to state that, “Healthcare practitioners are still a little wary of weight-loss medications because of this sort of chequered past.”
According to reports, a new weight loss pill, Saxenda, from Novo Nordisk A/S, has been approved by US regulators late last year, and is expected to soon be available alongside other appetite-suppressing prescription drugs like Qsymia, Belviq and Contrave.
While these sound great on paper, doesn’t it make you wonder why doctors aren’t rushing to prescribe them to help people lose weight?
