Semaglutide & Tirzepatide Q&A

What are semaglutide and tirzepatide?

Semaglutide and tirzepatide are the newest anti-obesity medications, approved by the FDA in 2021. Medical professionals classify these treatments as glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonists, abbreviated GLP-1 RAs. 

One function of GLP-1RA in the body is to act similarly to a hormone by the same name. GLP-1 stimulates insulin production, which then helps regulate blood sugar levels. This makes semaglutide and tirzepatide an effective treatment for individuals with type-2 diabetes. 

More recently, experts discovered that high amounts of GLP-1 can also suppress appetite. When paired with healthy lifestyle choices through diet and exercise, these medications help melt unwanted body fat. This can also greatly reduce the risk of cancer, diabetes, and heart disease in some populations. 

How do I know if semaglutide and tirzepatide are right for me?

The weight loss experts in Pompano Beach take a patient-centered approach to health care, ensuring the highest level of comfort during your visit. The team first assesses your medical history, diet, and current health to determine if you’re a potential candidate for treatment. 

The experts may then take a blood sample to evaluate your health further.

If deemed a good fit for treatment, the team may provide a prescription and additional supportive therapies weekly, such as:

  • Weigh-ins and counseling
