Tirzepatide Weight Loss
Clinic Johns Creek
Obesity is not always something that diet, exercise or sheer willpower can fix — instead, it’s a dysregulation of fat cells in the body. This is why many feel frustrated when trying to lose weight- no matter how much exercise and healthy eating you do, it just feels like you are spinning your wheels and getting nowhere.
Tirzepatide is different, and rather than relying solely on diet, exercise and willpower to reduce weight, Tirzepatide targets the digestive and chemical pathways that underlie obesity and has been shown to suppress appetite and modulate fat utilization.
It has the potential to become the most powerful and effective drug to date in an arsenal of obesity treatments, which affects more than 4 in 10 American adults and is linked to dozens of diseases that can lead to disability or death.
Like Semaglutide, Tirzepatide belongs to a class of drugs called GLP-1 agonists, which mimic the action of two different gut hormones that help reduce food intake and appetite.
While semaglutide targets one molecule, GLP-1, Tirzepatide is the first to target two: GLP-1 and GIP, which along with reducing appetite, may also improve how the body breaks down sugar and fat.
How does Tirzepatide work?
After eating a meal, your blood sugar rises. Tirzepatide works to decrease blood sugar levels by stimulating the body to produce more insulin, lowering the amount of sugar the liver makes. It also targets the chemical signals sent from the gut to the brain, curbing cravings and thoughts of food. When your blood sugar decreases, digestion slows and hunger decreases.
In addition, Tirzepatide slows down the rate of speed food moves through the stomach, making people feel fuller for longer, so you consume fewer calories without feeling deprived.
How do you take Tirzepatide?
Tirzepatide is administered through a prefilled syringe subcutaneously (just under the skin) in your abdomen, upper arm, or thigh once a week. Tirzepatide injections are injected once a week to decrease how much food people eat and increase how much energy they burn, and does not need to be taken with meals, so it can be administered whenever is most convenient for you.
This injection can be administered any time of day but should be the same day each week. It is okay to change the day of the week you take your Tirzepatide as long as it has been at least 48 hours (two days) since your last dose.
Take Tirzepatide injections as directed. Please reach out to our office if you do not understand any part of the instructions prior to administration. Do not increase the amount or take more of it than prescribed
How is Tirzepatide different from Semaglutide?
Listen, we love our Semaglutide. But Tirzepatide has the ability to affect two different molecules.
Semaglutide targets the hormone GLP-1, which is involved in insulin secretion. Tirzepatide, on the other hand, is the first to target two hormones: GLP-1 and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP).
It works by basically mimicking a naturally produced peptide that is made in the gut, and just like Semaglutide, helps to regulate glucose and contribute to a feeling of fullness. Tirzepatide just comes with the added bonus of the second hormone to deliver an even more effective powerhouse for weight loss!
