Weight loss - Stock Gain

BATS:LLY   Eli Lilly and Company
Eli Lilly & Co. is a pharmaceutical company with a long history dating back to its founding by Eli Lilly in May 1876. The company is headquartered in Indianapolis, Indiana, and is engaged in the discovery, development, manufacture, and sale of pharmaceutical products. Their product portfolio includes a range of therapies in various therapeutic areas, such as diabetes, oncology, immunology, neuroscience, and other medical conditions.

One notable aspect of their recent success is the introduction of a weight loss drug, tirzepatide. This drug is similar to other medications like Ozempic and Wegovy, which are also designed to help with weight loss. These medications are administered via weekly injections and work by affecting the patient's appetite by mimicking certain hormones in the gut.

Wegovy, for instance, primarily mimics the hunger-regulating hormone called GLP-1, while tirzepatide goes a step further by mimicking both GLP-1 and another hormone called GIP. These hormonal effects can lead to decreased appetite, making it easier for individuals to manage their weight.
