Orlistat Inhibition of Intestinal Lipase Acutely Increases Appetite and Attenuates Postprandial Glucagon-Like Peptide-1-(7-36)-Amide-1, Cholecystokinin, and Peptide YY Concentrations
Quite a long title, but thought I’d leave it for effect. The bottom line is that, the use of drugs like Orlistat (and the over the counter blockbuster weight loss product called Alli) actually SLOW down the process the body uses to manage weight, hunger and the progression to diabetes!! Ugghhhh!!! Given the massive promotion of the release of Alli on the market some time ago we should expect further increases in obesity and diabetes any day now…Better make sure we double up on the artificial sweeteners.
