Plenity Will Be a New Medical Device for Weight Loss
You'll hear about Rx Plenity for weight loss...as patients work to keep New Year's resolutions.
Each Plenity capsule consists of thousands of "cellulose hydrogel" particles that expand to occupy about a quarter of the stomach...so patients feel full faster.
But Plenity is a medical device...not a drug. It's not absorbed or metabolized...the particles just pass through the GI tract.
