Combined exercise and Liraglutide: effective for weight loss maintenance

A recent study found that a combination of exercise and medication can significantly help individuals with obesity maintain weight loss. In the study, participants who engaged in moderate to vigorous exercise and took liraglutide lost an average of 9.5 kg more weight compared to those who received a placebo and did regular activity. The weight and fat loss achieved with exercise and liraglutide were twice as much as the results from using either strategy alone. These findings provide hope for people struggling with obesity and emphasize the importance of exercise in improving health and quality of life.

The study focused on liraglutide, a medication used for weight management, along with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity. The exercise program included indoor cycling and circuit training sessions, and participants were closely monitored. The researchers found that the combination of exercise and liraglutide resulted in the most significant weight loss compared to other groups. Additionally, the combination led to a reduction in body fat and improvements in hemoglobin A1c levels, which are indicators of diabetes risk reduction.

The study highlights the benefits of exercise as a tool for sustaining weight loss. It also provides guidance for healthcare professionals in helping patients navigate weight loss maintenance strategies after reaching a plateau. Keeping weight off can be challenging for individuals with obesity, but exercise, along with medication if needed, can be an effective approach. These findings emphasize the importance of incorporating exercise into obesity treatment, not only for weight loss but also for overall health and well-being.
