Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide (GLP-1) analog. GLP-1 is a hormone naturally produced in the small intestine that stimulates insulin secretion and inhibits glucagon secretion, thereby lowering blood sugar.
Studies show that semaglutide reduces appetite, improves control of eating, and reduces food cravings in addition to improving glycemic control. Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) incretin hormone that helps the pancreas release insulin, which in turn helps the body control blood sugar levels.
Tirzepatide combines two classes of medications: GLP-1 and GIP whereas Semaglutide is just the GLP-1. In some studies, Tirzepatide was found to be superior in treating diabetes patients to Semaglutide. It works by mimicking the effects of incretin hormones–or, hormones that are released after eating that regulate the amount of insulin your pancreas secretes and lowers the amount of glucose your liver makes. In short, this helps you to feel fuller longer, slow down digestion, and lowers your blood sugar.
Tirzepatide combines two classes of medications: GLP-1 and GIP, whereas semaglutide includes just the GLP-1. Patients are reporting significantly less nausea symptoms with tirzpeatide.
You will start on a lower dose and then titrate up every 4 weeks. It’s important to let your body get used to the medication before upping your dose. Many people will feel less hunger and reduced cravings within the first 24-48 hours. The best method for losing weight is slow and steady. It’s important to focus on upgrading your lifestyle habits to complement with the medication.
Possible side effects of Semaglutide:
- Stomach discomfort
Possible side effects of Tirzepatide:
- Difficulty in breathing or swallowing
- fast heartbeat
- gaseous stomach pain
- recurrent fever
- skin itching, rash, or redness
- stomach fullness
- swelling of the face, throat, or tongue
- yellow eyes or skin
Due to the beneficial lifestyle changes Semeaglutide and Tirzepatide promotes, it is possible to stay at a consistent weight when you get off of the medication. However, if you go back to poor eating and lifestyle habits, it is likely that weight gain will occur.
To experience the best results possible we recommend incorporating healthier eating habits and moving your body. Prioritizing protein, healthy fats and fiber as well as reducing the amount of processed foods is highly recommended.
