Mounjaro tirzepatide is a new drug on the market for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It is also shown to be very effective for weight loss, working better than many other similar types of drugs. FDA approval is being sought for this drug to be used for weight loss.
Mounjuro tirzepatide injections are the first of their kind for the treatment of diabetes and work very well for weight loss. It works by impacting glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) receptors and GLP-1 receptors. It is the first drug to work on both of these.
GIP and GLP-1 are hormones of the gut called incretins and are released in the intestines when we eat. Incretins encourage the production of insulin from the pancreas. GLP-1 increases insulin production which in turn reduces sugar levels in the blood. GLP-1 helps to promote the feeling of being full and delays the emptying of the stomach. This helps to control appetite.
GIP also works to increase insulin release. GIP helps reduce fat accumulation, increases glycogen production (which helps stabilize sugars in the bloodstream), increases bone formation, and reduces acid secretion in the stomach.
GLP-1 and GIP and considered to be incretin hormones. These are hormones that get released when you eat. Mounjaro tirzepatide mimics their effects. This signals the pancreas to relax insulin after eating and signals the liver to decrease the output of glucose. These help you feel satiated, slow down digestion, and lowers blood sugar levels.
Tirzepatide helps you lose weight in a few ways. It signals your brain and tells it you are full, so you eat less. It also slows how fast the food moves through your stomach, so you feel full longer.
It is often compared to similar types of drugs that only mimic GLP-1. Since tirzepatide impacts GLP-1 and GIP it produces better results for weight loss.
Mounjaro tirzepatide is injected under the skin like similar drugs of its kind. It can be done with a syringe or pen injector. You can easily do this at home without the need for a healthcare provider to be present. It is injected once a week into the fatty tissue beneath the surface of the skin. Your doctor will instruct you on the best way to do this and the best locations for injections.
Mounjaro tirzepatide has many benefits, including improved control of diabetes symptoms and weight loss. Clinical trials have shown that this can contribute significantly to weight loss.
Mounjaro tirzepatide increases glycemic control in adults. In combination with a healthy diet and exercise, blood sugar levels were much improved in people with type 2 diabetes.
Mounjaro tirzepatide is also effective as a weight loss medication. People typically lost at least 20% of their body weight after a year of treatment. This new medication shows more promise for weight management than other drugs that only impact GLP-1 alone.
Mounjaro tirzepatide is considered to be safe and effective for most people. It does need to be prescribed by your doctor.
Tirzepatide should not be used if you are pregnant, plan to become pregnant in the next three months, or are breastfeeding. You should not use it if you have ever had medullary thyroid carcinoma or a family history of this, if you have a family history of MEN2 syndrome, or have ever had pancreatitis. Tirzepatide can have a negative impact on some oral contraceptives.
