How does Tirzepatide work?

Tirzepatide works by activating GLP-1 and GIP receptors. Controlling appetite and blood sugar requires these receptors. After eating, the body releases GLP-1 and GIP. They lower blood sugar by signaling the brain to lessen appetite and increase fullness.

As an agonist, it activates GLP-1 and GIP receptors greater than hormones. Tirzepatide promotes insulin secretion, reduces blood sugar, and increases satiety to help lose weight.

How often should Tirzepatide be taken?

All patients should start on a low dose of Tirzepatide, at 2.5 mg, to see how their bodies react to it. Always take your doctor's recommendations seriously. Here is the suggested Tirzepatide dosing schedule:

  • Month One: 2.5 mg Weekly
  • Month Two: take 5mg once weekly
  • Month Three: take 7.5 mg once weekly.
  • Month Four: 10 mg once a week
  • Month Five: take 12.5 mg once weekly.
  • Month Six: 15 mg once weekly
