How Can I Get Zepbound In Maryland?
Acquiring a prescription for Zepbound is a simple three-step process when you work with Weight Wise.
What Is Zepbound?
Zepbound, with its generic name tirzepatide, is a novel drug for weight management, functioning similarly to semaglutide. It belongs to a class of drugs known as incretin mimetics, which mimic the action of natural hormones in the body that regulate blood sugar and appetite.
The primary action of tirzepatide is to stimulate the release of insulin in response to high blood sugar levels, while concurrently reducing the glucose production by the liver. This dual-action helps in maintaining balanced blood sugar levels, beneficial for individuals with type 2 diabetes.
Moreover, tirzepatide impacts appetite control. By slowing the process of gastric emptying, it extends the feeling of fullness after meals, leading to a decrease in overall calorie intake and aiding in weight loss.
How Does Zepbound Help You Lose Weight?
Zepbound (tirzepatide) helps in weight loss through a couple of key mechanisms:
Appetite Suppression: Tirzepatide influences the hormones in your gut that signal hunger and satiety to the brain. By enhancing the action of these hormones, it effectively increases feelings of fullness and reduces hunger. This leads to a decrease in overall food intake, as you feel satisfied with less food and for longer periods.
Regulating Blood Sugar Levels: Tirzepatide works by stimulating the release of insulin, a hormone that helps regulate blood sugar levels. When insulin levels are well-regulated, it can reduce the incidences of blood sugar spikes and drops that can often lead to cravings and overeating. This steady regulation of blood sugar can indirectly support weight loss efforts by curbing unnecessary snacking or overeating due to fluctuating glucose levels.
The combined effect of these actions is a reduction in calorie intake and an improvement in metabolic control, which contributes to weight loss.
How Much Weight Can You Lose On Zepbound?
The weight loss achieved with Zepbound (tirzepatide) has been shown to be significant in clinical trials. In a phase 3 randomized, controlled clinical trial, participants taking tirzepatide experienced a 20% reduction in body weight over 72 weeks.
In addition, those who continued on tirzepatide for an additional year (after an initial 36-week treatment period) lost an additional 5.5%, resulting in a total weight loss of about 25%.
It’s important to note that these results are averages and individual weight loss can vary. The effectiveness of tirzepatide in weight loss is also influenced by factors like diet, exercise, and overall adherence to the medication regimen.
Who Can Qualify For Zepbound Treatment?
Zepbound (tirzepatide) is approved for chronic weight management in specific groups of people, as per the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) guidelines. The criteria for qualifying for Zepbound treatment are generally as follows:
Body Mass Index (BMI) Criteria: Zepbound is approved for use in adults with obesity, which is defined as having a body mass index (BMI) of 30 or greater. It’s also approved for use in adults who are overweight, with a BMI of 27 or greater, but this is conditional on the presence of at least one weight-related health condition.
Weight-Related Health Conditions: These conditions can include high blood pressure, high cholesterol levels, type 2 diabetes, obstructive sleep apnea, or cardiovascular disease. If an individual has a BMI of 27 or greater and also suffers from one of these conditions, they may be eligible for Zepbound treatment.
