How does tirzepatide work?

Tirzepatide for weight loss works by reducing appetite and increasing feelings of fullness. It works by mimicking the effects of the natural hormones GLP-1 and GIP in the body. These hormones help regulate appetite and blood sugar levels in the body. The medication also slows gastric emptying (how long food stays in the stomach) and can result in feeling full sooner and staying full for a longer period of time.
