Benefits Of Starting Our TEMPO Medical Weight Loss Management Program

When considering medical weight loss options, it's essential to consult with healthcare professionals who can evaluate your specific health needs and recommend the most suitable approach for you.

Beginning your medical weight loss journey with a board-certified Physician Assistant (PA) at TEMPO offers a host of advantages, including expert guidance, personalized evaluation, medication management, lifestyle counseling, regular follow-up, and a holistic approach to health and wellness.

  • Develop Healthy Habits: Our weight loss providers work with you to establish healthy habits that support your long-term weight loss journey, resulting in a new and healthier lifestyle.

  • Reduce Risk of Chronic Conditions: Losing weight not only helps you restore your figure, but it also enhances your overall health and reduces your risk for chronic disorders such as diabetes, cancer, osteoarthritis, joint pain, and other musculoskeletal conditions.

  • Improve Cardiovascular Health: Achieving weight loss can lower your chances of developing hypertension, stroke, or heart disease. Reducing excess pounds also removes pressure on your blood vessels, improving circulation and nutrient delivery to your heart and the rest of your body.

  • Boost Self-Confidence: Seeing the initial results of your weight loss can increase your self-esteem and improve the way you feel about yourself, ultimately enhancing your overall sense of self-confidence.

Semaglutide and Tirzepatide are two medications that have shown promise for weight loss in clinical trials. Here's a brief overview of each:

  • Semaglutide is a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist originally developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes.

  • In clinical trials, semaglutide has demonstrated significant weight loss effects in people with obesity, even in the absence of diabetes.

  • The medication works by increasing feelings of fullness, reducing appetite, and slowing stomach emptying, which can lead to reduced calorie intake and weight loss.

  • Semaglutide is typically administered as a once-weekly injection.

  • Tirzepatide is a dual glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) and GLP-1 receptor agonist.

  • Like semaglutide, tirzepatide was initially developed for the treatment of type 2 diabetes but has also shown significant weight loss effects in clinical trials.

  • Tirzepatide works by targeting multiple pathways involved in appetite regulation and glucose metabolism, leading to improved weight loss outcomes compared to traditional GLP-1 receptor agonists.

  • Tirzepatide is administered as a once-weekly injection.
