New obesity drug: It may help you lose weight, it may kill you


Obesity drugs are dangerous things. A new “promising” treatment from Zafgen resulted in around 13 percent lost body weight in their latest trial. Unfortunately eight patients suffered “serious” adverse effects, like pulmonary embolism, and two died.

Sound like Russian roulette. Would you play?

    Why can't you get an appointment with your GP?

    You have an acute problem (including pain) and you seem to think it is serious enough to go to A&E.

    Don't let yourself get pushed around like a piece of furniture. Refusing to treat people with serious problems is illegal in my country.

    Stand up and fight.
