Welcome to the forefront of weight loss innovation. Are you serious about losing significant weight? Here at Dima Wellness, we are happy to offer two powerful treatments: semaglutide and tirzepatide. These drugs are also known by the brand names, Ozempic, Wegovy, Mounjaro and Zepbound. These groundbreaking medications are transforming the landscape of obesity treatment, offering new avenues for individuals seeking effective and sustainable weight loss. Let’s delve into what they are, how they work, and their potential as potent tools in the battle against obesity.

What are Semaglutide and Tirzepatide?

Both are highly effective weight loss drugs approved by the FDA. Semaglutide is a GLP-1 receptor agonist, and tirzepatide a GLP-1 and GIP receptor agonist. These medications were originally developed for the management of type 2 diabetes. However, their remarkable impact on weight loss has garnered significant attention and led to their approval for use in weight management. In randomized control trials, patients treated with semaglutide lost an average of 6.2% of their body weight, whereas patients on tirzepatide lost an average of 18% of their body weight.

How do Semaglutide/Tirzepatide Work for Weight Loss?

Semaglutide mimics the effects of a naturally occurring hormone in the body called GLP-1 by binding to its receptor. Tirzepatide works similarly on the GLP-1 receptor, but also binds to the GIP receptor as well. Administered as a once weekly injection, these medications are very well tolerated. Here’s how they promote weight loss.

Appetite Regulation: Semaglutide and tirzepatide help regulate appetite by acting on the brain’s hunger centers. They create a feeling of fullness (satiety), reducing overall food intake.

Blood Sugar Control: By addressing insulin resistance and improving blood sugar control, semaglutide and tirzepatide indirectly influence weight loss. Better blood sugar management can reduce cravings and promote a more stable energy balance.

Slowed Digestion: Semaglutide and tirzepatide slow down the emptying of the stomach, leading to a lasting feeling of fullness after meals, which helps in portion control and contributes to weight loss.

Long-Term Sustainability: One of the key advantages of semaglutide and tirzepatide is their potential for sustainable weight loss. It addresses both the physiological and behavioral aspects of obesity, promoting lasting results.

What are the Side Effects of Semaglutide/Tirzepatide?

Being that these medications effect how the stomach works, it’s not surprising that most side effects are GI-related. Semaglutide and tirzepatide can cause nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, constipation, abdominal (stomach) discomfort and pain, injection site reactions, fatigue, hypersensitivity (allergic) reactions (typically fever and rash), burping, hair loss and gastroesophageal reflux disease. That said, we have found that the medications are very well tolerated by our patients.


Is Semaglutide/Tirzepatide Right for You?

Semaglutide and tirzepatide are prescription medications. Each patient is unique and should consult with a healthcare professional prior to starting therapy to see if they are appropriate candidates for treatment. Our board-certified physician will consider various factors, including your overall health, medical history, and weight loss goals in customizing a plan for you. Semaglutide and tirzepatide are intended to be part of a comprehensive weight loss strategy that includes a balanced diet and regular exercise.

Embrace a Healthier Future

In addition to weight loss, semaglutide and tirzepatide have also been found to have other health benefits, including a reduction in the overall risk of cardiovascular and stroke morbidity. Explore the possibilities of semaglutide and tirzepatide as transformative tools in your weight loss journey. Take the first step towards a healthier, more vibrant life with semaglutide and tirzepatide.
