Who are Mounjaro Weight Loss Injections suitable for?

Mounjaro can be used as an aid in weight loss alongside a reduced calorie diet and increased physical exercise for those with:

  • a BMI of over 30 (obese)
  • a BMI of 27 or more with a weight related condition such as high blood pressure.

 

You should speak with a doctor prior to using Mounjaro if you have: 

  • Severe gastroparesis
  • Eye conditions such diabetic retinopathy
  • Ever had pancreatitis (inflammation of the pancreas)

How does Tirzepatide work?

Mounjaro contains an active ingredient called tirzepatide which imitates two naturally occurring hormones in the body namely,

  • Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1)
  • Glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP)

Mounjaro regulates appetite and promote the feeling of fullness. When you take Mounjaro, it talks to parts of your brain responsible for hunger which makes you feel less hungry and more satisfied, so you don’t crave food as much. Along with eating a reduced calorie diet and doing more exercise, Mounjaro Weight Loss Pens can help you lose weight. 

GLP-1 and GIP also increase insulin production which helps regulate blood sugar levels. Unregulated blood sugar levels can cause food graving hence, reducing the blood sugar spikes can be helpful when using Mounjaro.

In some people it was found that people taking the highest dose of Mounjaro (15mg) lost up to 22.5% of their body weight. It is important to remember that Mounjaro is not a magic drug and a commitment to eating a balanced diet, reducing snack intake and regular exercise alongside the use of Mounjaro is important.

Is Mounjaro effective To Help Me Lose Weight?

There have been several studies looking at the effectiveness of Mounjaro as a weight loss treatment. Those taking Mounjaro in addition to a balanced diet and exercise can expect to lose around 15-20% of their initial body weight. These results have been achieved by patients who complete treatment by maintaining the 15mg strength.
