Tirzepatide Now Available!

We are proud to announce that we are one of the first medical weight loss clinics in the Phoenix area to offer this effective, newly-approved medication!   


What is Tirzepatide? 

Tirzepatide is a medication that mimics two hormones in the body that help not only lower blood sugar/HgbA1c, but also has shown to drastically decrease appetite leading to weight loss! After eating, these hormones: GLP-1 and GIP stimulate insulin release to lower blood sugar and decrease appetite by reducing the time for the stomach to release its contents after eating.  Other similar medications, like Semaglutide (Ozempic), only mimic ONE of these hormones.  According to the American Heart Association, since Tirzepatide mimics TWO of these hormones, Tirzepatide leads to more weight loss (17.8% with Tirzepatide vs 12.4% with Semaglutide). 


**NOTE: Since Tirzepatide does not increase energy or boost metabolism, we highly recommend pairing this with either a B-12 injection or our lipotropic (fat-burning) injections.  

Benefits of Tirzepatide:

  • Delays stomach emptying, leading to feeling of fullness

  • Lower blood sugar and HbA1c

  • Slows intestinal motility

  • Stimulates insulin secretion

Starting Tirzepatide with At the Crossroads Weight Management, our medical provider and staff monitor your progress each week, starting at a lower dose and increasing the dose, following a set schedule.  This helps to minimize side effects such as nausea, constipation/diarrhea, and fatigue.  

*You may not be eligible for Tirzepatide if you have the following: low blood sugar, diabetic retinopathy, pancreatitis, decreased kidney function, medullary thyroid cancer (or a family history of medullary thyroid carcinoma), or multiple endocrine neoplasia type 2.
