The pill will be a better option as compared to ‘intragastric balloons’, which are another mode of managing obesity. This option is invasive as the balloons are placed in a patient’s stomach using an endoscope and requires the patients to be sedated. Once the balloons are in a patient’s stomach, they are inflated using a tube. The balloons are then deflated and removed after six months.
