I deal with weight loss. If I’m 200lbs a 14% would about 28 lbs.
So, after 68 weeks, they averaged about 15%.
Just about any wt loss program will guarantee you this much wt loss, in considerably less time.
The real weight loss, involves that next 15 to 30%, AND TO MAINTAIN IT.
But the pharma wallet is fatter
I see my internist in about a week. I’m going to ask.
I eat healthy and exercise (diet and exercise regimen approved by all my various doctors [I have a bunch], and I’m rather strict), but as a result of medication I must take, my blood glucose always runs high (because it’s medication-induced, and is under good control, I don’t get the label “pre-diabetic” or “diabetic”), and I carry some extra weight.
Five years ago, my doctors predicted that as a result of my medical treatment, I’d gain a bunch of weight and become diabetic, but as a result of my efforts, it hasn’t happened. But this medication, added to all the others could possibly lower my weight to closer to “healthy” and my blood glucose to normal.
At least for folks like me, this could have real value.
And maybe I could go back to having a glass of wine with my dinner a couple of times a week. ;-)
