What is Mounjaro (Tirzepatide)?
Mounjaro is a prescription-only once-weekly injection with the active ingredient Tirzepatide. It is licensed in the UK for weight management (weight loss and weight maintenance) and the treatment of Type 2 diabetes. You can order Mounjaro online at the London Slimming Clinic.
Mounjaro is the brand name of the medication Tirzepatide. It mimics the action of your body's naturally occurring incretin hormones, GLP-1 and GIP, released after food intake. With a combination of GLP-1 and GIP receptors, it is the first medication in its class that regulates hunger, satiety, and blood glucose levels.
Mounjaro can be taken for weight loss by those who have a BMI of above 30 or a BMI of 27-30 with at least one weight-related comorbidity (a condition caused by being overweight or would improve by weight loss), such as:
- High cholesterol
- Type 2 diabetes
- High blood pressure
- Obstructive sleep apnoea
In addition to controlling blood glucose levels, clinical trials of Mounjaro have shown a significant weight loss in patients, greater than any other GLP-1 currently licensed for weight loss.Back to top
