Millions of people around the world struggle to reach their weight loss goals with traditional methods. That’s why every time a new medical weight loss treatment is successfully trialled, the world goes mad. In comes Mounjaro – the so-called “King Kong” of weight loss.
In the UK, as of November 2023 Mounjaro has been approved by the Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) to be prescribed as a weight loss management treatment. It will be available to those who have a BMI of over 30 and those with a BMI of over 27 but suffer with weight related health problems like prediabetes or high blood pressure.
Here at Bodyline, we want to help you explore the effectiveness of Mounjaro for weight loss and how it could stand out among other weight loss medications.

Mounjaro is a brand name for the injectable pen containing the active ingredient tirzepatide. It is an innovative medication that has recently gained attention for its remarkable impact on weight management. Originally developed as a treatment for individuals with type 2 diabetes by pharmaceutical giant Eli Lilly, clinical trials have seen Mounjaro show incredible potential in promoting weight loss.
Mounjaro has two incretin hormones and it is classified as a ‘dual-agonist’. This double agonist approach seems to cause people who use Mounjaro weekly injections to lose even more weight than those who use a single-agonist medication such as Wegovy. These receptors stimulate hormones that control blood sugar levels and reduce appetite, triggering weight loss. The receptors are known as glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) and glucose-dependent insulinotropic polypeptide (GIP).
Bodyline is at the forefront of providing the latest obesity treatment options, as we continue to offer safe, effective, and sustainable medical weight loss programmes.
The Promise of Mounjaro in Weight Loss
Research has demonstrated promising results for Mounjaro in terms of weight loss and blood sugar control. In a meta-analysis of 22 trials comparing Mounjaro with other GLP-1 receptor agonists, researchers found that tirzepatide was superior to other medications in controlling blood sugar levels and promoting weight loss.
This review found a weekly injection of Mounjaro (taken at a dose of 10 mg or 15 mg) was more effective for weight loss than a weekly injection of Wegovy (taken at a dose of 2.4 mg).
Another trial, comparing the impact of tirzepatide against a placebo, saw almost 96% of users lose more than 5% of their body weight.
When can I get Mounjaro?
What sets Mounjaro apart from other weight loss medications? Firstly, Mounjaro’s effectiveness in promoting weight loss surpasses that of other single GLP-1 receptor agonists. Its unique formulation and dosage make it a potential game-changer in the field of obesity treatment.
Mounjaro is now authorised for adults with a BMI of 30kg/m² or more (obesity), as well as those with a BMI between 27-30kg/m² (overweight) who also have weight-related health problems such as high blood pressure or high cholesterol. The medicine is to be used together with a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity, which is why it is so important to be prescribed as part of a fully supported medical weight loss programme.
The Importance of Medical Supervision
It is important to note that Mounjaro, like any prescription medication, should only be used under proper medical supervision. Weight loss medications are most effective when integrated into a comprehensive program that includes a reduced-calorie diet, increased physical activity, and lifestyle modifications.
At Bodyline, we take a comprehensive approach to weight loss, considering each individual’s unique needs and goals. Our healthcare professionals thoroughly assess medical history, current medications, and underlying health conditions to determine the most suitable weight loss medication, whether it be Mounjaro or another option. We provide ongoing monitoring and support to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment.
The Journey to Successful Weight Loss with Bodyline
Weight loss is a journey that requires dedication. While Mounjaro could be a valuable tool in achieving weight loss goals, it is essential to prioritize healthy eating, regular physical activity, and lifestyle modifications as part of the overall plan. Mounjaro will not be a standalone solution but should be used in conjunction with other healthy habits and within a fully supported medical weight loss programme for optimal results.
