Diet pill could be alternative obesity treatment

According to recent reports in the diet news, a new diet pill could aid dieters in shedding an average of a stone and a half in just six months.
The new drug, Tesofensine, alters the brain chemicals that control the appetite, leaving a patient feeling full. The diet pill has been suggested as a potential alternative treatment for surgery, stomach stapling and gastric banding .
A professor from the International Association for the Study of Obesity, Arne Astrup, was reported in the news as commenting: “You could easily come up to 20 per cent weight loss which could offer an alternative to the surgical treatment of obesity which has become the only real cure or effective treatment that can provide a weight loss of that size.”
