Tirzepatide Once Weekly for the Treatment of Obesity

DOI: 10.1056/NEJMoa2206038

Diabetes drug leads to notable weight loss in people with obesity
Efforts to tackle the disease have long been focused on diet and exercise, but many people who lose weight this way find they regain it over time.
Tom Sanders, professor emeritus of nutrition and dietetics at King’s College London said, “This class of drugs only works providing the participants stick to the reduced calorie diet prescribed with the drug so it is not a magic bullet.”
Dr Simon Cork, a senior lecturer in physiology at Anglia Ruskin University, also said, “these drugs are gamechanging for the obesity field but they will only work for as long as the drug is being taken.”
