What is Semaglutide and Tirzepatide?
Semaglutide and Tirzepatide mimic a health-promoting, naturally occurring peptide in the body (GLP-1). Semaglutide is a small protein (peptide) that activates metabolic pathways in the body to increase blood sugar metabolism and reduce appetite. Studies have shown that it reduces appetite, improves control of eating and cravings, and improves insulin sensitivity and blood sugar regulation.
The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Semaglutide to be used to treat type-2 diabetes in 2017. Further research and studies have shown that Semaglutide is also suitable for losing weight, and in June of 2021, it was FDA-approved for weight loss under the brand name Wegovy. You may also recognize the brand names Ozempic or Saxenda, or Mounjaro (Tirzepatide).
The peptides and medications that we prescribe are produced at a reputable compounding pharmacies and are given as a weekly injection. The injection can be given in our office or at home.

Insulin resistance can be a root cause underlying metabolic syndrome and virtually every chronic disease. Studies show that 88% of Americans are in poor metabolic health, and six out of ten have a chronic disease. We struggle with so many issues because of insulin resistance: high blood pressure, weight gain, fatty liver, dementia, low sex drive, menstrual issues, infertility, heart disease, cancer, Alzheimer’s, and more. Insulin resistance can be a key contributor to all these issues and many more. It’s a complex condition, but vital to understand if you want to live a full, vibrant, healthy life!
We offer dietary recommendations, meal plans, and supplements to increase insulin sensitivity and improve metabolic health. Work with our health care providers and see the short and long term benefits of improving insulin sensitivity.
