Gender Differences in Weight Loss with Medical Treatments

females lost more weight than males with similar exposures to liraglutide, suggesting that body size may not be the only factor.   What are the main findings?

Response: The main findings of our study are that many weight loss clinical trials do not report weight loss by gender. Of those that do, females tend to lose significantly more weight than males with pharmaceutical treatment, namely in SCOUT (sibutramine), CONQUER (phentermine/topiramate), and STEP (semaglutide).

In the SCALE trials, females experienced greater weight loss than males at similar exposures of liraglutide.
