About type 2 diabetes

Over 20 million Americans have diabetes and that number is expected to keep rising. That means that if you have diabetes, you're not alone. Plenty of other people are going through what you're going through.

One of the things you might be experiencing is that diabetes can be hard to manage. It’s important to remember that diabetes is a progressive disease, which means it usually changes over time. Your healthcare provider might have to change your treatment over time.

When someone has type 2 diabetes, the body has trouble using or making enough insulin. You’ve probably heard about insulin—you might think it’s just something that people with diabetes have to inject.

But insulin is actually something that everyone needs. Insulin is a hormone that helps the sugar from your food enter your cells. For most people, the body naturally makes enough insulin.

If you have type 2 diabetes though, your body might not make the best use of the insulin you make. Sugar (or glucose) cannot enter the cells to be used for energy. Instead, it builds up in your bloodstream. This is called high blood sugar. Symptoms of high blood sugar can include feeling hungry, tired, thirsty, having dry or itchy skin, blurred vision, or frequently needing to urinate.

If your blood sugar isn’t where it needs to be, that’s where Trulicity may help. Trulicity helps your body do what it’s supposed to do—release its own insulin. This may help lower your blood sugar.
