Tirzepatide (Mounjaro®) Injections in TX
Just like Semaglutide, this FDA-approved medication for obesity also helps control insulin for patients with Type 2 Diabetes. It also has enormous potential for weight loss with only one injection per week combined with a balanced diet and exercise.
However, Tirzepatide has a special feature that differs from Semaglutide. It is a ‘first-in-class’ and only dual incretin medication GLP-1 and GIP. That means it can attach to two different receptors, mimicking two hormones that help people feel full after eating. It can significantly reduce glycemic levels and improve insulin sensitivity, as well as reducing body weight by more than 20% and improving lipid metabolism.
Not only does this drug reduce body fat and treat Type-2 diabetes, but it also makes you feel satiated for a longer time, leading to significant weight loss.
Some of the main benefits of InShapeMD Tirzepatide Injections include:
- Reduces Body Fat
