A new study has come up with a way to lose weight and keep fit in one's middle-age with the help of obesity drugs.


According to the researchers from University of Aberdeen-led, the study has paved a way for the creation of obesity drugs that might re-ignite the appetite controlling signals that become less efficient with age, the Daily Express reported.

Lead scientist Professor Lora Heisler said that the research focused on the cells in the area of the brain that made important brain hormones called pro-­opiomelanocortin (POMC) peptides, which controls one's appetite.

Heisler further added that as people approach mid-life these cells slow down and become lazier in sending these signals, which leads to a misjudgment of how much food their body needs.

The study is published in the journal Endocrinology.
