Tirzepatide - What is it?
Tirzepatide is a once-weekly injectable peptide medication which also goes by the brand name Mounjaro. It combines two hormones, GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) receptor and GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) receptor agonist, in one injection.
By combining these two hormones, tirzepatide digestion is slowed which reduces appetite and hunger cravings. Tirzepatide is shown to be a safe and effective way to lose weight in addition to helping patients with type 2 diabetes manage their blood sugar levels.
Regen IV Wellness offers tirzepatide for individuals having difficulty losing the extra 25-30 lbs most of us tend to put on in adulthood. We've seen great success in all of our patients whether for weight loss support or diabetes support. It's available in both weekly at home injection or in clinic injection options.
