Semaglutide and Tirzepatide: Miraculous Weight Loss Medications


Dr. Gloria Functional Medicine is happy to provide two weight loss options: Semaglutide, similar to Ozempic, and Tirzepatide, the compounded version of Mounjaro. These medicines are like natural substances made in your gut. They help you make more insulin, reduce your hunger, and slow down how fast your stomach empties. This makes you eat less without feeling very hungry. They’re also great at reducing your cravings.

These medicines have been super successful in helping people lose weight over the past ten years. With Semaglutide, most people lose at least 15% of their body weight during the weight loss program, and with Tirzepatide, it’s about 20%.

Sadly, regular prescriptions of these medicines for weight loss aren’t covered by insurance, and they can cost $1500 or more every month. But here’s the good news: the versions we offer are just as effective, and we can give them to our clients for much less money.


To begin our weight loss program, you’ll have a short virtual or in-person meeting with us. If you’re eligible and want to continue, we’ll send you some forms about your medical history and consent. We’ll also arrange for some lab tests and get your first month’s medicine ready. It will be sent to your home with everything you need. Later on, we’ll check your lab results and make sure you get more medication when needed.
