Overview: Join us for a closer look at tirzepatide, a first-in-class glucose-dependent insulinotropic peptide (GIP) and a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist (GLP-1 RA). See how this novel glucose-lowering agent can help raise the bar in both HbA1c lowering and weight loss in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus.
