Washington: Researchers have found that a pre-diet measurement of two hormones related to weight regulation can help predict which dieters will be more likely to maintain their weight loss and who will not.With obesity rates in many countries steadily climbing, more people are turning to diets to lose weight, but maintaining the weight loss can be extremely difficult for many people, leading to a frustrating cycle of weight loss and gain.“The current study shows for the first time a clinically useful marker to identify, at an early time, patients who have difficulties in maintaining their body weight,” Ana B. Crujeiras, study author from the University Hospital of Santiago de Compostela (CHUS) and Biomedical Network Research Center in Physiopathology of obesity and Nutrition (CIBERobn) in Santiago de Compestela, Spain, said.“This difficulty is one of the most significant obstacles for obesity therapy, and currently there are no biological markers that effectively demonstrate clinical usefulness in predicting weight-loss regain,” she said.
