Combination of hormones for the treatment of obesity

The combination of two hormones makes it possible to effectively treat obesity with few side effects.

According to a new study, published in the prestigious journal Nature Medicine, the combination of estrogen and a molecule called glucagon-like peptide (or GLP-1) corrects obesity, hyperglycemia, and dyslipidemia in obese mice.

Previous studies have already shown the efficacy of both GLP-1 and estrogens in the treatment of obesity and diabetes in adults, however the combination of both molecules appears to be more efficient and safe than when these molecules are administered individually.

Furthermore, this strategy based on this combination also avoids the adverse side effects of estrogens such as cancer or stroke.
