About Weight Loss Therapy
Phentermine and other appetite suppressants curb unhealthy food cravings and train your body to feel satisfied and nourished without overeating. They don’t directly cause weight loss but are prescribed to help reduce your hunger and lower your calorie intake. Weight loss happens when you burn more calories than you consume. Phentermine is a helpful temporary option for weight loss when combined with a healthy diet and exercise routine.
In the intestine, when nutrients are present, the body releases peptides called incretin hormones. The two main incretins are glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP). GLP-1 boosts insulin production, reduces glucagon release from pancreatic α cells, and also affects digestion by slowing down stomach emptying, making you feel fuller. GIP is the primary incretin hormone in healthy individuals and is responsible for most of the incretin effects.
These actions make you feel full, reduce your appetite, and help you lose weight. Medications such as GLP-1 agonists and GIPs are called incretin mimetics because they imitate these effects.
We initially used semaglutide and tirzepatide, which are GLP-1 agonists, to treat type 2 diabetes because they lower blood sugar. But we discovered that these medications also help people without diabetes lose weight. In our weight loss program, we favor Mounjaro and Wegovy as the preferred GLP-1 agonists.
When using prescription weight loss medications, it’s crucial to start making changes in your behavior and lifestyle. This includes increasing your daily physical activity, making healthier eating choices, and reducing the number of calories you consume. It’s also important to optimize your hormones to maintain metabolic processes.
