How Trulicity can help people with type 2 diabetes
Starts acting from the first dose
Trulicity is a non-insulin option that helps your body release the insulin it's already making.
Blood sugar levels
In studies, Trulicity has been proven to lower blood sugar levels. People taking Trulicity may notice better blood sugar numbers before eating in the morning (fasting blood sugar).
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.
The majority of people reached an A1C under 7%.
In Trulicity studies with other medication, 50% to 67% of patients with an average starting A1C of 8% to 8.6% reached an A1C <7% across 4 doses.
People lost up to 10 lbs.
In studies with other diabetes medications, weight change in adults ranged from +0.4 lbs (0.75 mg) to -10.1 lbs (4.5 mg). Trulicity is not a weight loss drug. Individual results may vary.
In one study, many people lost some weight over the course of 6 months, and they were able to keep it off for the remainder of the study.
Choosing your Trulicity day
Trulicity is designed to fit into your busy life. Trulicity is taken once a week. On your Trulicity day, you can take your dose at any time of the day, with or without food. So start by picking the best day for you and mark it as your Trulicity day. Do your best to stick to the same day every week.
If you'd like to change your Trulicity day, you can. If it's been more than 3 days since your last dose, you can switch. If it's been fewer than 3 days since your last dose, wait until the following week to take the dose on your new Trulicity day.‡
