Once-weekly Trulicity® may help you reach your A1C goals

What is Trulicity?

Trulicity is not an insulin. It's a kind of medicine called a glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) receptor agonist . It works like the GLP-1 hormone in your body. The body naturally releases GLP-1 after you eat to help control blood sugar. Trulicity helps your pancreas release insulin when your blood sugar is high. It can also limit how much sugar goes into your blood from your liver, and it slows the emptying of food from your stomach.

Trulicity is taken once a week and works 24/7, responding when your blood sugar rises. Plus, Trulicity comes in an easy-to-use* pen that’s activated with the click of a button. Trulicity pens come in 2 doses—one with a yellow label (0.75 mg), the other with a blue label (1.5 mg). Your healthcare provider will tell you which is right for you.

*In a study, 94% of people who used the Trulicity pen found it easy to use. Before starting Trulicity, your healthcare provider should show you how to use the pen.

How Trulicity can help

Trulicity can help improve your numbers

Trulicity, along with diet and exercise, may help lower your blood sugar and A1C. In a study, the higher dose helped 78% of people and the lower dose helped 66% of people get to the A1C goal of below 7%.

Of people taking the lower (0.75 mg) dose, 66% got to the A1C goal of below 7% Of people taking the lower (1.5 mg) dose, 78% got to the A1C goal of below 7%

Select Safety Information

Trulicity may cause serious side effects, including inflammation of your pancreas (pancreatitis). If you have pain in your stomach area (abdomen) that is severe and will not go away, stop taking Trulicity and call your healthcare provider right away. The pain may happen with or without vomiting. It may be felt going from your abdomen through to your back.

Trulicity may offer lasting A1C improvements

In a study, some Trulicity users saw a significant improvement when their A1C was measured after 6 months, and it was still improved after they had been taking Trulicity for 1 year.
