Mounjaro®

Mounjaro® mimics two incretin hormones that help with controlling blood sugar: Glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP). It’s the first of its kind to act on two receptors to help individuals feel full faster through delayed gastric emptying and suppressed glucagon production.

Mounjaro is a prescription medication that can help you lose weight and manage your type 2 diabetes. It’s an easy-to-use once-weekly injection that works by regulating your blood sugar levels and reducing your appetite.

Let's talk how this Mounjaro® works for your weight loss.

How does Mounjaro work for weight loss?

  • Mounjaro targets two incretin hormones, GLP-1 and GIP, which help regulate blood sugar and appetite. This dual-agonist action enhances Mounjaro’s effectiveness in promoting weight loss.
  • Mounjaro delays gastric emptying, keeping you feeling fuller for longer and reducing your overall calorie intake. This prolonged satiety helps you control your food intake and achieve weight loss goals.
  • Mounjaro suppresses the production of glucagon, a hormone that raises blood sugar levels. By reducing glucagon, Mounjaro promotes the breakdown of stored fat for energy, further contributing to weight loss.

Form and dosing for Mounjaro

Mounjaro® comes in an easy-to-use injection that starts at a low dose of 2.5 mg once a week. The dose may be adjusted based on your individual needs and how you respond to the medication. Our Indianapolis weight loss team will work with you to find the right dose for you.

Common side effects of Mounjaro

Nausea, diarrhea, constipation, vomiting, and abdominal pain can all be uncomfortable side effects of some GLP-1s. These symptoms can range from mild to severe and can impact your daily life. If you’re experiencing any of these side effects, it’s important to talk to your healthcare provider. They can help you find ways to manage your symptoms and make sure you’re getting the best possible care.
