What is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide (more commonly known as. Mounjaro or Zepbound) is an injectable anti-diabetic medication used for treating type 2 diabetes that has been FDA-approved for weight loss treatments. Through a series of weekly injections, Tirzepatide can regulate blood sugar and insulin secretion, reduce appetite, and increase feelings of fullness, resulting in weight loss. For some clients this drug also has some generalized anti-inflammatory features which produce fewer “daily body aches” and an overall feeling of “general wellness”.

What are the benefits of Tirzepatide?
