Does Alli work?
Well, according to this editorial in the Lancet:
According to the big brains over at the Lancet:
- The average weight loss with alli is only 2.5 kg / 5 lbs per year.
- The cost of OTC alli is 6 times higher than the equivalent dose of prescription Orlistat.
- Both OTC alli and prescription Orlistat have the unfortunate side effect of steatorrhoea
And, for those of you that don’t know what steatorrhoea is:
- Steatorrhea is the presence of excess fat in feces.
As a result:
- Stools may also float due to excess gas
- Stools may have an oily appearance
- Stools may be especially foul smelling
- You may experience an increased number of bowel movements
- You may experience an urgent need to have a bowel movement
- You may experience an inability to control your bowel movements
And, as a result:
- You may experience an oily anal leakage or some level of fecal incontinence.
And, just to remind you:
The average weight loss with alli is only 2.5 kg / 5 lbs per year.
