Tirzepatide Q&A

How does tirzepatide work?

Tirzepatide is a novel injectable medication for weight management and similar purposes. Tirzepatide is a dual peptide that works in your gut, liver, and pancreas to balance your hormones and lower your blood sugar. 

High blood sugar can lead to an array of possible health problems. Vision loss, neuropathy, and ulcers that never heal are among the top complications of elevated blood sugar, which is one of the main features of diabetes. 

Tirzepatide injections increase the production of the hormone insulin from your pancreas, which helps facilitate the transfer of blood sugar into your cells, which use it as energy. Tirzepatide also slows down your rate of digestion, making you feel less hungry throughout each day. 

How can tirzepatide improve my health and wellness?

At STL Medical Weight Loss, Dr. Moleski prescribes tirzepatide for two primary purposes. Alongside the prescription, he recommends a healthy diet and lifestyle changes to help with reaching your goals:

Diabetes management

Tirzepatide is FDA-approved as a treatment for type 2 diabetes. While the injections can’t treat type 1 or gestational diabetes, they can help your body use insulin for its intended purpose while lowering your blood sugar to prevent diabetic complications. 

Weight loss

Medications that contain tirzepatide are on the fast track for FDA approval. These injections help you manage your weight by reducing your appetite and helping your body process sugar more efficiently. 

Dr. Moleski can help you compare tirzepatide with similar injections to decide which is right for you. 

What should I expect while taking tirzepatide?

During your initial telehealth consultation with Dr. Moleski, he reviews your health before developing your individualized weight management plan. This involves healthy lifestyle changes like nutritional changes and increased exercise alongside any recommended injectable. 

Dr. Moleski typically recommends checking your blood sugar often as you take tirzepatide. When you receive the drug, it comes with explicit instructions on how to self-inject every dose. You can ask Dr. Moleski any questions that come up, and he can offer personalized suggestions. 

You place your shots in areas like your thighs, upper arms, or stomach, taking care to change locations with every dose. The doses vary from person to person, as do the number of doses you need to take each day or week.
