Semaglutide

Semaglutide is a GLP-1 agonist medication used for weight loss. Semaglutide is the active ingredient in Ozempic and Wegovy.

So, how does it work?

The short version is that it helps to control hunger – it mimics the action of the hormone GLP-1, helps to decrease appetite by making you feel full sooner and stay feeling full longer, so you eat less and you lose weight. It works in the brain to control hunger and cravings.Semaglutide also helps to keep your glucose and insulin levels balanced and to prevent the liver from making too much sugar (glucagon).

Since it works in the part of the brain that controls hunger and cravings people often describe no longer experiencing “food noise.” Being able to turn off the noise and control hunger and cravings makes the medication a very effective tool for developing healthier eating habits. Medication is a tool and healthy diet and lifestyle is still essential for losing weight and keeping it off. 

Tirzepatide

Tirzepatide is a GLP-1/GIP agonist medication used for weight loss. Tirzepatide is the active ingredient in Mounjaro and Zepbound.

How does it work?

Tirzepatide works in the same way as Semaglutide to help control hunger, promote earlier satiety (that feeling of fullness), decrease appetite, slow how quickly food moves through the digestive tract, balance insulin and blood sugar levels and prevent production of excess sugar by the liver. It has also been shown to increase insulin sensitivity and improve Triglyceride clearance which may prevent fat deposition. 

What is the difference between Semaglutide & Tirzepatide?

  • Semaglutide works on the GLP-1 receptors, Tirzepatide works on teh GLP-1 receptors and the GIP receptors. It mimics a second hormone,GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide). GIP also helps to suppress hunger, stimulate insulin release and increase insulin sensitivity which may prevent fat deposition. 
  • Both medications are effective. Some people find that they lose more weight on Tirzepatide and experience fewer GI side effects. 

Frequently asked questions about Semaglutide & Tirzepatide

If I'm not diabetic will these medications cause low blood sugar?

No, it usually does not cause low blood sugar. GLP-1 can increase the production IF your glucose level is too high, as in someone with Diabetes or after you eat. 

Who can't take Semaglutide & Tirzepatide?

If you have a history of any of the following you may not be able to take  these medications and need to be sure to discuss with your provider:

  • History of medullary thyroid cancer or Multiple Endocrine Neoplasia
  • Allergy to Tirzepatide
  • Type 1 Diabetes
  • Diabetic eye disease
  • Gallbladder disease or a history of pancreatitis

What are the side effects of these medications?

It is important to remember that every medication can have side effects and that not everyone who takes a medication experiences side effects. With Semaglutide or Tirzepatide those who do experience side effects usually find that they are GI related and go away within a few weeks once their body gets used to the medication.  

The most common side effects include:

  • Nausea/vomiting
  • Diarrhea/constipation
  • Bloating
  • Abdominal discomfort
  • Heartburn/Indigestion

Taking a fiber supplement, and increasing your water intake, often prevents constipation.  

When will I start losing weight?

With both Semaglutide & Tirzepatide you start at a low dose and titrate dose up to allow your body to adjust and prevent side effects. Some people start losing on that initial starter dose, others need to get to a higher dose to start losing. Everyone is different in how medication affects them.

Why add B12 and Glycine?

Glycine is an amino acid abundant in collagen and connective tissues that helps with protein synthesis and reduces inflammation. Glycine may help preserve lean muscle mass and improve physical resilience in patients losing weight.

B12 can help prevent nausea and can help with energy. 

How long will I need to take medication? Will I regain once I stop?

Our belief is that medication is a tool and only part of the solution to long term success. While taking the medication you are also changing the way you eat, live and think about food. 

You will start at a low dose and titrate up. This doesn’t always look the same for everyone. Once you achieve your goal weight you will start to titrate the dose back down. Usually once you are back down to the lowest dose and have maintained your goal weight for 3 months the medication is discontinued. You will need continue with a healthy lifestyle, diet and exercise to maintain your healthy new weight. 

Again, everyone is different and this is something we would need to discuss with you individually.
