What is Trulicity and how can it help?

When your oral medicine is no longer giving you the control you need, Trulicity may help you get your blood sugar numbers where you and your doctor would like them to be.

Once-weekly Trulicity is not insulin. It helps your body do what it is supposed to do naturally—release its own insulin, responding when your blood sugar rises. It’s used along with diet and exercise to help lower your blood sugar and A1C numbers.

Once-weekly Trulicity is a type of medicine called a glucagon-like peptide-1 receptor agonist. Or GLP-1 RA, for short. It’s similar to the hormone GLP-1 that is already in your body and it’s thought to work the same way.
