How Does Tirzepatide Work?

How Does Tirzepatide Work?

Incretins are hormones produced by the gut right after eating. They play a key role in controlling insulin levels and the feeling of fullness. There are two main types: GIP and GLP-1, both crucial for maintaining normal blood sugar levels. In people with diabetes, the pancreas doesn’t respond well to incretins, especially GIP. Recently, using GLP-1 receptor agonists has become a very effective way to improve blood sugar control, aid in weight loss, and reduce heart disease risk in diabetic patients. Research suggests that combining GLP-1 agonists with GIP might improve insulin production in response to high blood sugar levels. GIP also helps make fat tissue more responsive to insulin, aiding in fat storage post-meals and possibly improving overall blood sugar control and insulin sensitivity. It might also help increase the feeling of fullness. These findings led to the development of a new diabetes treatment and weight managmenet, tirzepatide, which has shown promising results in the recent studies. 

How Does Semaglutide Work

Tirzepatide, operates through a multifaceted mechanism involving the brain, gut, and white adipose tissue:

Brain: Tirzepatide influences the brain’s regulation of appetite and energy expenditure. By acting on certain brain chemicals, it reduces the sensation of hunger, leading to decreased food intake. This reduced appetite, coupled with an increase in energy use, contributes to weight loss.

Gut: In the gastrointestinal system, tirzepatide activates GLP-1 and GIP receptors. GLP-1 receptors play a crucial role in insulin secretion and glucose homeostasis. The stimulation of these receptors by tirzepatide enhances insulin secretion from the pancreas in a glucose-dependent manner. This means more insulin is released when blood glucose levels are high, such as after meals, aiding in better blood sugar control. Additionally, tirzepatide reduces glucagon levels, a hormone that typically increases blood sugar, further aiding in glucose regulation.

Pancreas: Tirzepatide stimulates insulin secretion primarily in response to increased blood glucose, ensuring a glucose-dependent release. This process not only increases insulin availability but also contributes to the reduction of glucagon secretion, a hormone that raises blood sugar levels. The combined action of increasing insulin and reducing glucagon helps to effectively regulate blood sugar, especially post-meal, making tirzepatide a significant agent in the management of conditions like diabetes.  Tirzepatide may aid in the survival and functionality of pancreatic beta cells, which are crucial for insulin production.

White Adipose Tissue: Tirzepatide also impacts white adipose tissue, which is involved in energy storage and hormone production. It prevents ectopic fat deposition, which refers to the abnormal accumulation of fat in areas of the body not typically used for fat storage. By doing so, tirzepatide mitigates the risks associated with abnormal fat distribution, such as metabolic disorders.

DOUG S.

I came to the clinic already knowing that I had testosterone levels at the very bottom of the acceptable limits for men. After consulting with Dr. Brown and going through his questions he picked up on several things that I considered was just a part of aging. Those things turned out to be not part of aging but the Thyroid not functioning as well as it should. After doing extensive blood work and getting real world information I am on a path to feeling great and being active again.

TINA B.

I have been a patient of Dr. Frederick Brown’s for several years. After my first visit I remember telling my girlfriend that I felt like I hit the jackpot in finding such a caring & compassionate doctor. The individualized care and treatment is like nothing I’ve ever found with previous doctors. His staff also reflect his personal care. I am always telling anyone who is dealing with menopause to go see Dr. Brown and try the Biote identical injectable pellet. It is hands down the only way to deal with pre-menopause & menopause. It has changed my life for the better!

KELECHI R.

Dr. Brown’s “Kit Glove” approach to my several years of lower back pain which has severely affected my fast paced lifestyle has been quite commendable. With a driven personality to “never quit”, it’s quite rare to find a Medical practitioner that adopts the same mindset. His staff has been quite a gem as well. I look forward to continuing on the treatments until we get to a resolve.
