US scientists discovered that TSPL Protein can reduce weight by eliminating fat through Sweat.
A team of experts at the University of Pennsylvania is conducting research on the treatment of diabetes by studying a protein in the immune system, Thymic Stromal Lymphopoietin (TSLP).
TSLP has been linked to asthma and a variety of allergies, but some recent research has shown that the same protein regulates the body’s energy use, i.e. metabolism.
This led to the idea that this protein may also help in the treatment of type 2 diabetes. To test this hypothesis, Experts began further research. This research proves that TSPL is helpful in controlling blood sugar levels and helps minimize the severity of Type-2 diabetes. This research surprisingly revealed that the same protein also excretes fat from sweat which helps in reducing weight and obesity.
According to the experts, this is the first time that a protein belonging to the immune system has been found to cause fat excretion in sweat.
However, they also point out that there is still a long way to go before TSLP can lead to formal treatment for obesity or diabetes because of the negative effects of high levels of this protein in the body.
Experts are now conducting further research to understand the practical mechanism of TSLP in controlling obesity and diabetes and to move towards a new drug or treatment that is effective as well as minimal side effects.
Note: This research is published online in the research journal “Science”.
