At Ageless Aesthetics we offer physician supervised weigh loss with Tirzepatide.
What are the Benefits of Using Tirzepatide?
Weight Loss: Tirzepatide has demonstrated significant weight loss effects in clinical trials. It has shown superior weight reduction compared to other diabetes medications, including other GLP-1 receptor agonists. The weight loss associated with Tirzepatide is attributed to its effects on appetite regulation and slowed gastric emptying. It is important to note that Tirzepatide is meant to be used alongside lifestyle changes, including food, sleep, and exercise changes.
Improved Glycemic Control: Tirzepatide has shown superior efficacy in reducing HbA1c levels (a measure of long-term blood sugar control) compared to other diabetes medications, including GLP-1 receptor agonists and insulin therapies. By stimulating the GLP-1 and GIP receptors, tirzepatide increases insulin secretion and decreases glucagon secretion, helping to regulate blood glucose levels.
Cardiovascular Benefits: Clinical studies have suggested potential cardiovascular benefits of Tirzepatide. It has been associated with reductions in blood pressure, cholesterol levels, and markers of inflammation, which are all risk factors for cardiovascular disease. These findings indicate that Tirzepatide may have additional advantages beyond glucose control.
Convenience of Administration: Tirzepatide is administered once weekly as a subcutaneous injection. This dosing schedule offers convenience and may enhance adherence compared to daily or multiple daily injections.
Are There Any Side Effects to Tirzepatide?
Like any medication, Tirzepatide may cause side effects. The following are potential side effects associated with Tirzepatide, based on available clinical trial data:
Gastrointestinal Effects: The most commonly reported side effects of tirzepatide are gastrointestinal in nature. These may include nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, abdominal pain, and decreased appetite. These symptoms are usually mild to moderate in severity and tend to improve over time.
Hypoglycemia: Tirzepatide, like other glucose-lowering medications, can cause low blood sugar levels (hypoglycemia). The risk of hypoglycemia may be increased when Tirzepatide is used in combination with certain other antidiabetic medications, such as insulin or sulfonylureas.
Injection Site Reactions: Some individuals may experience injection site reactions, such as pain, redness, or itching at the injection site. These reactions are generally mild and temporary.
