LOSS - Is
Leptin a miracle cure?
Leptin, when discovered,
in the nineties, was regarded by many as the quick-fix for weight
loss. Some hoped it would be the miraculous answer to the fat
person's prayer, and effect instant weight loss solutions.
However, most were disappointed. Leptin
levels were injected into patients, and even when raised tenfold,
did not achieve any miraculous change in weight. Some researchers
injected it into people who had already lost weight, and monitored
their weight maintenance factor. This time it proved successful,
and the results of this success in weight control has been documented
in the Journal of Clinical Investigation.
These physiological tests - they were not clinical trials,
fell short of the anticipated results. Recently, a team researching
at Columbia University, has found that injections of Leptin
can make the body believe that it does not have to eat more
in order to conserve its fat levels.
The body's response to losing weight is age-old. It's a fact
that the more body weight is lost the slower is the process
of dropping the pounds. The body fights against the process
- thought to be a natural protective response, resulting from
early man's famine-and-feast eating pattern.
In a small test, the team found that injections of leptin can
prevent the natural bodily response that results in the body
putting the lost weight back on.
Leptin, a naturally occurring hormone is produced by the fat
cells. One of its functions is to keep the brain informed about
t the level of fat reserves in the body. A deficiency of Leptin
suggests to the brain that fat stores are running low and that
they should be replenished - so triggering an eating binge.
So, what do you do about it, naturally, if you are overweight
However, daily injections do not make for an easy or practical
solution to an excess weight problem. The scientists are working
at devising a drug that will impede the leptin pathway and give
the 'correct' (from the weight loss point of view) info/signals
to the brain.
