Weight-loss drugs – level 3

25-12-2023 07:00

With over 40% of American adults being obese, the promising market for new weight-loss drugs is attracting attention.

Analyst Rob Cyran warns that while drugs like Nova nordis SPI and Eli zip bound may revolutionize obesity treatment, their harsh side effects and high costs could slow widespread adoption. Currently, only a small percentage of the 100 million obese Americans are expected to use these drugs by the start of 2024. The expensive monthly cost, exceeding 1,000 dollars without insurance, and tightening reimbursement policies from companies and governments may impede their growth.

Despite potential challenges, investors remain optimistic, affecting various industries like packaged food, fast-food restaurants, and medical firms catering to obesity-related diseases.

Difficult words: revolutionize (to change something radically), reimbursement (repayment for expenses), impede (to delay or prevent by obstructing something).
