                                     Medical Weight Loss

GLP-1 medications (glucagon-like peptide 1s) are one of the most effective drug classes for long-term weight loss on the market. Research has shown that patients using GLP-1s can lose between 15% and 20% of their bodyweight. Weight reduction helped by GLP-1 medications are approaching the rates of long-term success observed after bariatric surgery. Traditional medications in this category include semaglutide (Ozempic, Wegovy). Recently Tirzepatide has also been introduced. This medication combines powerful GLP-1 with GIP (glucose dependent insulinotropic polypeptide. Patients on Tirzepatide are seeing weight loss of over 20% of their body weight in studies. This medication works similar to a GLP-1 standalone, but the addition of a GIP gives it additional weight-loss power!

Both Semaglutide and Tirzepatide make the stomach empty slower – so you’ll feel satisfied with smaller amounts of food, helping you to eat less. They also send signal to the brain that there’s food in the stomach. Finally, they stimulates insulin secretion(allowing cells to take up glucose) and inhibit glucagon secretion (preventing more glucose from being released into the bloodstream) lowering blood sugar levels.
