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