A drug that helps to eat less – containing the hormone GDF15, which reduces appetite and body weight, was discovered at the University of Copenhagen.
It turned out that during the experiment conducted by the doctors, the body of the test subjects produced large amounts of the hormone GDF15 during exercise, as a putative signal of physiological stress.
This important discovery in understanding the action of the hormone GDF15 in the regulation of appetite was discovered by scientists at the Center for Basic Metabolic Research at the University of Copenhagen.

Studies in rodents and monkeys have shown that the hormone reduces appetite when introduced into the body, and the substance metformin promotes weight loss, as it increases the level of GDF15, writes Medicforum.
This, experts hope, will help millions of people fight obesity.
