Clarify the Role of Mounjaro for Type 2 Diabetes
You’ll hear buzz about new injectable Mounjaro (tirzepatide)...the first “twincretin” for type 2 diabetes.
Think of Mounjaro as similar to a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) agonist...but it’s also a glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP) agonist. More twincretins are in the works.
GLP-1 and GIP stimulate insulin release, increase satiety, and decrease glucose production.
