In the ever-evolving landscape of weight management, injectables have emerged as potential game-changers. But with multiple options and conflicting claims, navigating this terrain can be challenging. eMed, dedicated to evidence-based care, cuts through the noise to provide a scientifically informed perspective on weight loss injections.
GLP-1 Receptor Agonists: Leading the Charge
Among the various injectables, GLP-1 receptor agonists stand out for their robust research support and proven efficacy. Notably:
- Semaglutide (Wegovy): Semaglutide facilitates weight loss of up to 14.9% at 68 weeks (STEP-1 Trial). Its once-weekly dosing adds to its user-friendliness.
- Tirzepatide (Zepbound): An average weight loss of 20.1% at 72 weeks for patients on tirzepatide (SURMOUNT-1 Trial). Its also a once-weekly medication.
However, it's crucial to remember that these are not magic bullets. Sustainable weight management necessitates a responsible approach, with injections acting as potent allies alongside a healthy diet and regular exercise.
