How Tirzepatide Works and the Benefits

Tirzepatide represents a paradigm shift in weight management, offering individuals struggling with obesity a powerful tool to reclaim their health and vitality. Its innovative formula harnesses the synergy of two key hormones—GLP-1 (glucagon-like-peptide-1) and GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) — delivered in a once-weekly injection, to target multiple pathways in the body and optimize weight loss outcomes.

Many Tirzepatide patients at East Hill Medical Group have seen an average of 25-30% weight loss after 72 weeks of medical weight loss treatment.

Tirzepatide medication:

  • regulates blood sugar levels
  • increases insulin secretion
  • decreases glucagon secretion
  • slows the gastric emptying process to promote fullness.

With Tirzepatide, managing weight becomes more than just a daily task—it becomes a transformative journey towards sustainable health and wellness. By addressing both the biological and behavioral aspects of weight loss, Tirzepatide empowers individuals to achieve significant weight reduction and maintain their progress over time.

Our dedicated medical weight loss providers are here to guide you every step of the way, offering personalized treatment plans, ongoing monitoring, and compassionate encouragement. Together, we’ll navigate the challenges of weight loss and celebrate your successes, empowering you to live your life to the fullest.

The Tirzepatide medication is compounded at Everwell Pharmacy, a local pharmacy.

How Semaglutide Works and the Benefits 

Semaglutide is a weight loss medication that mimics GLP-I, a hormone released in the intestine that aids digestion and appetite suppression. It triggers the pancreas to release insulin, blocks other sugar sources, and it slows down stomach emptying to keep you full longer. It was approved by the FDA in 2021 as a treatment method for patients who are having difficulty losing weight.

On average, most patients who have taken Semaglutide have lost 15-20% of their body weight. 

Semaglutide medication:

  • Reduces appetite and food cravings
  • Improves blood sugar control
  • Increases Energy
  • Reduces risk of cardiovascular disease in adult patients with obesity or overweight
  • Works best when used with exercise and healthy eating behaviors
  • Treatment of PCOS
  • Improved Fertility
  • Smoking Cessation
  • Neuroprotective
  • Reduces back and knee pain 

The Semaglutide medication is compounded at Everwell Pharmacy, a local pharmacy.

Lipotropic B-12 Injections

Lipotropic B-12 injections contain several components that help with weight loss. Vitamin B-12 can increase your metabolism and gives you more energy. It’s particularly beneficial if your B-12 is running low and you don’t get enough of the vitamin in your diet. Lipotropic injections are helpful in weight loss because they contain added components that aid in fat metabolism.

Lipotropic nutrients are known to break down and metabolize fat. These nutrients not only help you lose weight, but provide a boost in energy so you can power through your workouts.

Frequently asked questions

Medical weight loss refers to a comprehensive, physician-supervised approach to achieving weight loss and improving overall health.

Unlike many commercial weight loss programs, medical weight loss is tailored to the individual’s unique health profile, addressing underlying medical conditions and focusing on sustainable, long-term results.

Medical weight loss involves a comprehensive and personalized approach supervised by healthcare professionals.
