Tirzepatide Therapy

What is Tirzepatide

Tirzepatide (Moujaro) is a novel, investigational medication that comes as a once-weekly injection. It works by impacting your body’s insulin levels, blood sugar production, and hunger hormones.

It has been shown to decrease how much food people eat and increase how much energy they burn.

Tirzepatide has an element that mimics a hormone called GIP which can reduce appetite and improve how well your body breaks down sugar and fat.

How does tirzepatide work?

Tirzepatide works by mimicking the effects of the hormones that are released after eating. . This includes telling the pancreas to release insulin after eating and signaling the liver to lower the amount of glucose it’s making. These effects help you feel full, slow down digestion, and lower blood sugar.

When your blood sugar decreases, digestion slows and hunger decreases. The medication helps you feel full longer, so you consume fewer calories without feeling deprived.

How does tirzepatide cause weight loss?

In addition to helping lower blood sugar, tirzepatide helps with weight loss in a few ways:

It signals to the brain that you’re full — so you eat less.

It slows the movement of food through your stomach — so you feel full longer.

Other similar injectable weight loss medications only mimic one incretin — GLP-1. It’s thought that because tirzepatide acts like two incretins, it can cause more weight loss than current alternatives.

A phase 3 clinical trial found a high dose of tirzepatide helped patients lose 22.5% of their body weight on average, or about 52 pounds, better than any medication currently on the market. Most patients in the trial had a body mass index, or BMI, of 30 or higher.

What are the benefits?

When used with diet and exercise, tirzepatide can both lower blood sugar levels and lead to significant weight loss in people

Cardiometabolic risk factors and physical function – benefits with tirzepatide were noted with respect to changes in waist circumference, systolic and diastolic blood pressure, fasting insulin level, and lipid levels (based on article published by the New England Journal of Medicine). 


How quickly do you lose weight on Tirzepatide?

In trials, people treated with tirzepatide lost an average of 15-20% of their starting weight over the course of 72 weeks. This was in combination with eating a reduced-calorie diet and increasing physical activity. People who took the placebo injection lost an average of 3% of their starting weight.

How long does it take for Tirzepatide to work?

This depends on how your body reacts to the medication and how well you follow the reduced-calorie eating plan and increased physical activity. It also depends on your starting weight. During clinical trials, people lost up to 20% of their starting body weight over 72 weeks.

What are the side effects of tirzepatide?

Like any medication, tirzepatide can cause side effects. These seem to be most bothersome when first starting it or after raising the dose. Most side effects are mild and resolve with time. Common side effects include: nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, loss of appetite, stomach pain, constipation, upset stomach.
