A New Option for Weight Loss
Megan Bradley, ARNP
WHAT IS TIRZEPATIDE?
Tirzepatide is a peptide made up of 39 amino acids. It has been shown to significantly reduce food intake, decrease cravings and induce rapid weight loss in clinical trials. Tirzepatide has been touted as "Ozempic version 2.0" - the new generation glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1).
Tirzepatide can be defined as the direct successor to the Semaglutide peptide, better known by its trade name, Ozempic. 2 years after its introduction to the weight loss drug market, Ozempic is already one of the best-selling drugs in America, and for good reason: it works. The draw back of semaglutide is its reported side effects. Tirzepatide is proving to have relatively limited side effects with an added bonus of lipolysis aka "fat burning" independent of caloric intake.
BENEFITS OF TIRZEPATIDE
- It induces a very significant weight loss in a short time.
- Improves insulin sensitivity.
- Reduces blood sugar.
- It has much less side effects than the other medicines that induce weight loss.
