As seen in the recent media and trends, a class of medication called GLP-1's are being used for weight loss, with vast amounts of proven success. Initially, these medications were prescribed to diabetic patients. It was found during the medication studies and in practice, patients on these medications were losing a large amount of weight. Thus, the subsequent FDA approval of said medications for weight loss. These medications work on the body's metabolic process, to not only allow individuals to lose weight, but also improve the comprehensive health of patients.

These include, but are not limited to: diabetes, hypertension, high cholesterol and cardiovascular disease.
