Clinical Trial

Lisa participated in a clinical trial for a weight-loss drug and lost 40 pounds. She acknowledges that she gained back the weight after going off the pill, which put her at risk for diabetes and cardiovascular problems. Despite the risks, Lisa says, “I would rather be on a drug the rest of my life that lets me lose weight and be healthy than have to get sick and then be on a drug to control that the rest of my life. That’s my choice.”
