Tirzepatide is a new medication that is currently being investigated for the treatment of obesity and type 2 diabetes. It is a once-weekly injection that works by targeting multiple hormones involved in glucose and energy regulation, leading to weight loss and improved blood sugar control.
Clinical trials have shown that tirzepatide can result in significant weight loss in obese individuals with or without type 2 diabetes. In a phase 3 trial involving over 3,000 patients with type 2 diabetes, those who received the highest dose of tirzepatide (15 mg) lost an average of 12.4% of their body weight after one year, compared to 2.4% in the placebo group. The study also found that tirzepatide improved blood sugar control, reduced the need for diabetes medications, and lowered the risk of cardiovascular events.
Weight loss results
Significant weight loss can occur as early as 28-weeks. Tirzepatide results suggest that it has one of the most promising results and is a great option for individuals struggling with obesity and type 2 diabetes. As with any medication, it is important to discuss the potential risks and benefits with a healthcare provider before starting treatment.
When compared to other diabetes treatments, studies have shown that it can take 8 weeks to reach an A1C target of ≤7% and 12 weeks to reach an A1C ≤6.5% with Mounjaro.
This medication is FDA approved in the United States for diabetes but is also widely prescribed as off-label by doctors including W8MD doctors for weight loss. Results from a phase 3 trial showed that Mounjaro was highly effective in promoting weight loss in obese patients with an average BMI of 32-34. Patients on the highest dosage of Mounjaro (15 mg) lost an average of 12 pounds more than those on Ozempic, 29 pounds more than those on insulin degludec, and 27 pounds more than those on insulin glargine. These results demonstrate that Mounjaro has the potential to be a powerful tool in the treatment of obesity and related metabolic disorders.
Fast tracked for weight loss
Given one of the most promising and most effective weight loss results, the FDA is currently fast tracking this medication and is expected to FDA approved for weight loss sometime in 2023.
