    With the latest understanding of leptin resistance, it makes no sense to give people leptin if they have an altered response to it . Lustig says. "Leptin resistance is there, no amount of leptin is going to overcome that resistance." Resurge supplement

    This hormone only helps in a few extremely rare cases in the world where people barely produce leptin, causing them to overeat and become obese. When those people received leptin by injection, they stopped overeating and lost weight. But for the vast majority of people, the treatment will not work, nor is it approved as a medical treatment for weight loss.
