Using a Micro-needle Patch for Losing Weight

New research from Singapore is currently trialing a new drug delivery system to aim to turn white fat into brown fat. White fat is known for more of a protective role composed of a single fat droplet, with little mitochondria. Whereas brown fat is more efficient with an increased blood supply and iron rich mitochondria to increase the metabolism and increase calories burned.

The patch has 100s of small needles covered in Beta-3 adrenal receptor agonists or thyroid hormone T3 triiodothyronine which are being investigated on mice to turn white fat to brown.
