Comment: Weight loss injections – Focus attention on prevention, not the cure

Assistant Litigation Executive, Daniel Finney wants the NHS to focus on the root cause of obesity over investing in alternative cures.

This is in response to the news a new injection to reduce obesity without a gastric operation is in development.

The NHS performs around 6,000 gastric bands and bypasses each year.

However, critics believe the injection is a costly shortcut and will trigger abdominal pain and low blood sugar levels.

Daniel said:

 

It concerns me to see 30% of the world’s population classified as obese.

This is astronomical.

The UK health system is already under extreme pressure and it is worrying that the focus is on curing obesity rather than preventing it in the first place.
