What is Trulicity?
Trulicity is a once-a-week injectable prescription medication to help those with type 2 diabetes. Trulicity is a (glucagon-like protein) GLP-1 receptor agitator. Trulicity is becoming increasingly popular due to its effectiveness, the (potentially) positive side effect of weight loss, and doesn’t come with the risk of low blood sugar like insulin.
Trulicity has been known to have these effects.
- Stimulates the release of insulin in the pancreas, which lowers blood glucose levels
- Decreases glucose production in the liver
- It slows down gastric emptying, making you feel full
Trulicity is a GLP-1 receptor agitator, similar to Ozempic, as they both are once-a-week injectable prescriptions. Trulicity tends to be one of the most prescribed type two diabetes medications.
