Weight Loss

Semaglutide (brand names Wegovy or Ozempic)

is a FDA-approved medication for adult weight management. It is the first drug of its kind approved for this purpose. Semaglutide mimics a hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1), which regulates food intake and appetite. The average weight loss is 15% of one’s body weight.

Tirzepatide (brand names Monjouro or Zepbound)

is an FDA-approved medication that mimics GLP-1 and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) indicated for adults with obesity, or with excess weight (overweight) who also have weight-related medical problems, lose weight and keep it off. This unique medication that mimics two hormones naturally found in the body works together to stimulate insulin secretion and slow stomach emptying after a meal, signal to the brain that you feel full, thereby suppressing the appetite. Studies have shown more significant weight loss with Tirzepatide (21% weight loss) and milder side effects as compared to Semaglutide (15% weight loss).
