New Weight Loss Medication Approved in USA

>> Sunday, July 1, 2012

After a 13 year drought without approval of any new medications to help combat obesity, the American  Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved a new medication called lorcaserin (trade name Belviq) this week.

I was asked to write an editorial with my colleague, professor Arne Astrup, for Medscape Today about this new weight loss medication - you can read the full editorial here.

I am excited that you have arrived at my site, and I hope you are too - consider this the first step towards a Healthier New You!! As a medical doctor, Endocrinologist, and obesity specialist, I am absolutely passionate about helping people with weight management. Though there is certainly no magic cure for obesity, there IS a successful treatment plan out there for you - it is all about understanding the elements that contribute to your personal weight struggle, and then finding the treatment plan that suits your needs and your lifestyle. The way to finding your personal solution is to learn as much as you can about obesity: how our toxic environment has shaped us into an overweight society; the diversity of contributors to obesity; and what the treatment options out there are really all about. Knowledge Is Power!!
