From this study (1 week ago):
I am an obese male who lost 70 pounds over the last three years. My weight remained stable for nearly one year. My doctor prescribed and I have been compliant with taking the above mentioned medications for the last nine months and they were keeping my blood glucose in check and lowered my A1C by 60% over that time. Over the last three months, I have gained 8 lbs. without any change to my caloric intake or exercise regimen (I walk two miles a day.). Has my body adapted to taking these medications and now be causing weight gain?
