What is Tirzepatide?

Tirzepatide is a prescription medicine used for weight loss in adults. Tirzepatide works for weight loss by decreasing appetite and slowing the movement of food from the stomach into the small intestine, which may make you feel full more quickly and for a longer period of time. In type 2 diabetes, tirzepatide decreases blood sugar levels by increasing insulin production and lowering the amount of sugar the liver makes. Tirzepatide is given as an injection under the skin once a week.
Tirzepatide is a dual GLP-1 and GIP receptor agonist, which means it targets two different hormones involved in glucose regulation.
