- The U.S. Food and Drug Administration approved Eli Lilly’s novel treatment for diabetes.
- The drug led to impressive blood sugar and body weight drops in clinical trials.

- Will patients, who are obese and don’t have Type 2 diabetes, ask for the drug for weight loss, and will patients understand the risks?
