Obesity has become a major topic of medical research in the world. In addition to diet control, exercising and behavioral therapy, many scholars now believe that drug therapy should be added to the routine treatment of obesity. It is confirmed that weight-loss drugs can help improve the health of obese patients, and patients who fail to intervene in lifestyle alone can benefit from drug treatment. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) is currently used in clinical blood glucose control drugs, but it has been proposed that taking GLP-1 and GLP-1 analogs in obese patients can not only achieve weight loss but also prevent complications.
