Tirzepatide for Weight Management

Are you struggling to lose weight despite maintaining a healthy diet and exercise routine? You are not alone. Many individuals find weight loss challenging due to various factors. At EsthetixMD, we offer Tirzepatide, a medical weight loss medication designed to help you achieve your health and wellness goals.

What is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is a cutting-edge dual GIP/GLP-1 receptor agonist. Initially developed for diabetes management, it functions by emulating the natural hormones GLP-1 and GIP, which are secreted by the intestine after eating. This dual action not only stimulates insulin secretion but also helps reduce appetite by slowing gastric emptying and activating brain receptors that signal satiety.

Benefits of Tirzepatide

Tirzepatide offers multiple benefits, including:

  • Suppresses appetite, signaling to your brain that you are full to help you eat less
  • Slows the stomach’s emptying process
  • Reduces blood sugar levels for improved blood sugar control
  • Gradual and sustainable weight loss
  • A non-surgical approach to weight management

Who is a Candidate?

Healthy men and women who live a healthy lifestyle but have not seen results with other weight loss methods may benefit from Tirzepatide. Ideal candidates will have a BMI of 27 or greater and at least one weight-related comorbidity, such as insulin resistance, hypertension, high cholesterol, heart disease, or gout. Individuals with a history of pancreatitis, gallbladder disease, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or medullary thyroid cancer should not undergo this treatment. Women who are pregnant or nursing should also not undergo this treatment option. To learn more about candidacy, please contact our office today to schedule a consultation.
