What is Semaglutide / Tirzepatide?

Semaglutide/Tirzepatide are medications approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for chronic weight management. It belongs to a class of medications called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonists. When used as part of a comprehensive weight loss program, Semaglutide/Tirzepatide can help you lose weight and maintain a healthier lifestyle.

How Do Semaglutide / Tirzepatide Work for Weight Loss?

Semaglutide/Tirzepatide works by mimicking the action of GLP-1, a naturally occurring hormone in the body. GLP-1 helps regulate blood sugar levels and appetite. By activating the GLP-1 receptors, Semaglutide/Tirzepatide slows down the movement of food from the stomach to the intestines, leading to a feeling of fullness and reduced appetite. It also promotes insulin secretion and reduces excessive glucagon release, helping to lower blood sugar levels.

Hormone Therapy for

Weight Loss

With age, the body’s hormone production decreases. This can cause low production in the body’s natural weight loss stimulants and lead to weight gain. For example, when testosterone decreases in men or women it becomes difficult to retain muscle. As a result, fat accumulation can occur, especially around the abdominal section. In addition, thyroid disease and deficiencies are common in people as they age, especially those older than 45. These conditions are treatable by supplementing essential thyroid hormones to help stimulate weight loss.
