What are weight loss injections?

Weight loss injections, particularly semaglutide, and tirzepatide, are popular treatments for aiding weight loss by regulating appetite and metabolism. Semaglutide, a GLP-1 receptor agonist, mimics a hormone that controls hunger, leading to reduced calorie intake. Tirzepatide, a newer option, targets both GLP-1 and GIP receptors, offering enhanced weight loss benefits. Patients typically lose between 8 and 15 lbs per month.
