Can Tirzepatide be used for Weight Loss?

What Is Tirzepatide and is it Good for Weight Loss?

Tirzepatide, also known as Mounjaro, is an injection approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration to improve blood sugar control in adults with type 2 diabetes. Tirzepatide is administered once weekly through a simple subcutaneous injection that is often self administered, and paired with a diet and exercise regimen. Although Tirzepatide is a medication to treat type 2 diabetes, it has shown potential to significantly help promote weight loss.

How does it Work?

Overtime, high blood sugar in your body can cause serious health problems like Heart Disease, Vision Loss, and Kidney Disease. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) are hormones involved in blood sugar control. Mounjaro activates both the GLP-1 and GIP receptors, which leads to improved blood sugar control. Tirzepatide comes in a single dose pen and is administered by injection under the skin once weekly.

This injection can help regulate your blood sugar by increasing insulin production and lowering the amount of sugar your liver makes, making you feel fuller longer. Many patients have reported no longer having cravings for bad food after taking this medication.

Weight Loss

Tirzepatide can be beneficial for weight loss, pending that it is paired with healthy lifestyle changes and that it has been prescribed by a doctor. Exercise is always important for maintaining wellness, as well as being educated on which foods to eat with the medication. Some providers will recommend swapping out fast food carbohydrates for foods that provide a more sustainable energy food source such as foods rich in protein, fiber, and healthy fats.

You can also try staying far away from sweets and sugars such as alcohol, cakes, white bread, cereal, etc. Such foods can cause inflammation and set you back on your wellness path. Remember to give your body the foods it needs to function better while making a wellness transformation.
