I stumbled on an interesting article by Rigel Gregg over at Thatsfit.com this weekend which highlighted an article on WebMD.com; “Fullness Hormone May Boost Weight Loss“.
This article talks about a study published online in the American Journal of Physiology – Endocrinology and Metabolism, that focuses on the use of Symlin to help obese participants feel full and eat less.
I guess it’s an interesting thought. But don’t people without diabetes already produce this hormone?
Seems to me (based on NO medical or scientific knowledge or background on my part) that messing around with an already functional hormonal system may not be the best thing to do.
But what do I know?
