Mounjaro is an injectable prescription medicine that is used along with diet and exercise to improve blood sugar (glucose) in adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
At Radiant Esthetics and Wellness our focus is on helping patients to manage their weight, energy and overall health and well being. Many patients come to us because they have reached a bottleneck in achieving their weight loss goals.
There are many new products which are designed to help with weight gain that leads to diabetes. Such as Wegovy and Mounjaro, these two are the leading products on the market.
We are excited to provide this for our many new clients and patients.
Tirzepatide Plus is a once-weekly GIP (glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide) receptor and GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) receptor agonist, representing a new class of medicines studied for the treatment of obesity. Tirzepatide is a single peptide that triggers the body’s receptors for GIP and GLP-1, two natural incretin hormones. Cyanocobalamin will help increase energy.
GIP has decreased food intake and increased energy expenditure, resulting in weight reductions. Combined with a GLP-1 receptor agonist, it has a more significant effect on glucose and body weight effects.
This is a non surgical procedure and treatment. You receive weekly injections.
Weeks 1-4 inject 25 units (2.5mg) SQ weekly. Weeks 5+ inject 50 units (5mg) SQ weekly. Anything over 5 mg weekly, you would need more than one vial for a month’s supply. The max dose is 15 mg weekly which is more for DM2.
Typically you will see results in as little as three weeks, as long as you stick with our weight loss program that includes managing your diet, increasing your exercise, and water intake. This will also include adjusting your daily habits of how or what you drink to start your day. We suggest drinking black coffee or green tea daily without creamers that add calories.
Feel free to contact our office to discuss your weight loss goals.
