I went to see Dr. Sue for weight loss. Frustrated by the weight I gained over the last couple years, I told her no diet or exercise I did seem to help. I found Dr. Sue very personable. She listened to my troubles, and then explained a number of things that could be contributing to my inability to lower my weight. Her knowledge and conviction that I could achieve a healthy weight made me feel at ease, and hopeful. After 3 weeks of treatment I feel amazing, and best of all, I’ve dropped 14lbs! Friends and family tell me how radiant I look. My boss has mentioned my stamina and sharpness at work. I couldn’t be happier. Dr. Sue knows her stuff! I have many more pounds to lose, but with Dr. Sue I know it will happen. I’m so grateful for her care. Also, I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention her wonder staff. The entire office staff is pleasant, welcoming and supportive. Great Doctor, great team! ~ Google
What is Tirzepatide?
Tirzepatide is the generic name for the highly popular FDA-approved drug, Mounjaro. Tirzepatide sets itself apart from other peptide-based medical weight loss treatments due to its duel capabilities. Tirzepatide imitates the outcome of two hormones in the human body: (1) GLP-1 (2) GIP. While there are a few drugs that mimic the former hormone (GLP-1), Tirzepatide’s novel feature is the drug’s ability to affect the hormone GIP.
How does Tirzepatide work?
Tirzepatide is employed to address a number of factors that can hinder natural weight loss including appetite and feelings of fullness. Tirzepatide works to slow down stomach emptying, allowing patients to eat less and feel fuller while still losing weight. Additionally, it has an impact on the brain’s hunger and satiety signals, which inform an individual when to stop eating and can result in effective weight loss. A combination of all these factors lowers weight and improves blood glucose overall.
Who is a candidate for Tirzepatide?
During your initial consultation, the triple board certified physician will determine your eligibility through a set of routine diagnostic tests. Typically, most men and women with realistic weight loss expectations and a commitment to the peptide therapy process are ideal candidates for Tirzepatide.
How is Tirzepatide dosed out?
Unlike its brand name counterpart (Mounjaro), Tirzepatide may be dosed according to each patient’s unique anatomical needs, allowing for more precise results. While Mounjaro is dosed out by its manufacturer before the patient receives it, Tirzepatide may be compounded and dosed out at varying levels to ensure efficiency and accuracy.
How is Tirzepatide administered?
Tirzepatide is administered orally or via self-injection on a weekly basis. Tirzepatide may be self-administered in the morning, afternoon, or nighttime, depending on the patient’s schedule. It is important that patients take their prescribed Tirzepatide dose at the same time each week, in the same general area. If you are uncomfortable with the injection process, your triple board certified medical weight loss doctor will show you how how self-administer during your office visit to the Hamptons Medical Weight Loss Doctor (Southampton, New York).
