Tirzepatide/Semaglutide

If you’ve ever tried to lose a significant amount of weight, you know it’s never quite as simple as the antiquated “calories in, calories out” advice. In reality, your energy level, appetite, stressors, hormones, metabolism, and other factors influence how easy or difficult it is to lose excess body fat. When diet and exercise alone aren’t enough, semaglutide or tirzepatide injections overseen by our medical professionals could help you achieve a healthy weight.

What is Tirzepatide?

We now have Tirzepatide, the compounded generic form of Mounjaro for weight loss! (See Wall Street Journal article) Tirzepatide has been extensively studied for use for weight loss. We’ve seen great results with it in many of our own patients. Tirzepatide works as a GLP-1 and GIP agonist so it has broader effects than Semaglutide. Studies showed an average weight loss of 20% with Tirzepatide over the 72 week study period and a somewhat lower level of gut side effects. Just book a consultation appointment to see if it would be a good choice for you. All of our medication programs are combined with monthly t consultation to troubleshoot problems keep patient on track.

In addition we recommend our free biweekly video coaching sessions for additional support and education.

What Is Semaglutide?

Sold under the brand names Ozempic®, Wegovy®, and Rybelsus®, semaglutide is a prescription medication for type 2 diabetes and long-term weight management. Available in injectable and tablet form, this drug works by mimicking a hormone called glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1) which the body naturally produces to regulate hunger and blood sugar levels.

Semaglutide helps your body produce more insulin when your blood sugar levels are too high. It also works in the GI tract by slowing gastric motility, which means food stays in your stomach longer and prolongs the feeling of fullness. For that reason, it can be a great weight loss aid.
