For people living with type 2 diabetes, Trulicity lowers the risk of cardiovascular events*

*Like heart attack, stroke, and CV death.

Trulicity helps activate your body to release its own insulin. When you “activate your within,” you use what's inside you to help you reach your blood sugar and A1C goals. It is normal for your doctor to change the doses of your medication, and Trulicity now has 4 dose options to help fit your body's changing needs.

About type 2 diabetes

You are not alone. Millions of people are living with diabetes and going through some of the same things you are.

Diabetes can be hard to manage. It’s important to remember that diabetes is a progressive disease, which means it usually changes over time. And when it changes, your doctor might have to change your treatment as well.

What happens in your body

When you have type 2 diabetes, your body has trouble using or making enough insulin. Insulin is a hormone that helps the sugar from your food enter your cells. It’s something everyone needs and, for most people, the body naturally makes enough. But if you have type 2 diabetes, your body might not use the insulin you make efficiently. Sugar (or glucose) cannot enter the cells to be used for energy. Instead, it builds up in your bloodstream, causing high blood sugar.

If your blood sugar isn’t where it needs to be, 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. Ask your doctor if once-weekly Trulicity is right for you during your next visit.

Symptoms of high blood sugar can include:

  • feeling hungry
  • being extraordinarily tired or thirsty
  • having dry or itchy skin
  • experiencing blurred vision
  • frequently needing to urinate

Am I at CV risk?

Whether or not you’ve already experienced a heart attack or stroke, when you have type 2 diabetes you are more likely to develop heart disease, also known as cardiovascular disease (CVD), than people without type 2 diabetes.

Factors that can contribute to CVD

Sometimes people with type 2 diabetes may need to take additional steps to manage their heart health and cardiovascular risk.

How can I manage my CV risk?

With Trulicity, you can improve your blood sugar and A1C, and you can also reduce your risk of CV events like heart attack, stroke, or death.

Ask your doctor about your CV risk and how Trulicity may be able to help.
