Trulicity does not contain insulin. The active ingredient in it is dulaglutide. It acts on special receptors located on the surface of the cells of the pancreas, and thus stimulates the production of insulin. The hypoglycemic effect of dulaglutide is due to several mechanisms of GLP-1 action. With an increased concentration of glucose, dulaglutide increases the content of intracellular cyclic adenosine monophosphate (cAMP) in the β-cells of the pancreas, which leads to an increase in insulin secretion. Dulaglutide suppresses the excess secretion of glucagon in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus, which leads to a decrease in the release of glucose by the liver. In addition, dulaglutide slows down the rate of gastric emptying. This allows you to control blood glucose levels in type 2 diabetes.
Clinical trials have shown that the drug normalizes blood sugar levels in 50-60% of patients. In addition, it significantly reduces the risk of heart attacks in diabetic patients.
Trulicity comes in the form of a “pen” syringe that contains a single dose of the drug. The medicine is injected subcutaneously once every 7 days. The medicine should be administered in the abdomen, thigh, or upper arm approximately at the same time of the day. The patient can cope with this procedure on his own.
In the course of phase II and III clinical trials, 4006 patients received dulaglutide as monotherapy or in combination with other hypoglycemic drugs. The most common adverse reactions in clinical trials were gastrointestinal reactions, including nausea, vomiting, and diarrhea. In general, these reactions were mild to moderate and transient in nature.
Please be careful when taking Trulicity for the first time and closely monitor your health condition and blood sugar levels. Talk to your doctor if you notice any side effects or some of the side effects do not disappear for a long time. Also, inform your health care provider if your medical condition has changed, you are pregnant or plan on pregnancy, or changing your diet, physical activity, or lifestyle. It may require the corresponding dosage adjustment.

Trulicity and Metformin are medications for patients with diabetes mellitus type 2. However, these 2 completely different remedies with divergent principles of action. Metformin is a supplement to the primary insulin treatment that improves the body’s reaction to insulin, while Trulicity stimulates the secretion of insulin by the body itself. It helps to improve blood sugar levels, and Trulicity may cause the loss of weight.
Both Metformin and Trulicity are prescription drugs, so you cannot switch from one to another one without a prescription from your healthcare provider. The type of medicine, its dose, the technique of administration, and diet should be formed by the doctor. Any violation of the medical advice of your healthcare provider may lead to serious side effects and have health and life-threatening consequences. Be careful and do not self-medicate.
As a range of diabetes medications, adults with type 2 diabetes mellitus who use Trulicity, may notice a weight loss. It is important to notice that Trulicity itself is not a medication for weight loss and cannon be taken separately as a drug to lose weight. It is prescribed by the doctor to people with high blood sugar levels to control glucose.
However, the patients prescribed to taking Trulicity report the reduction of weight after some period of time of taking the medication. Mainly, it happens due to the fact that Trulicity medication provides a feeling of satiety after having a meal. The patient starts to eat less as the feeling of hunger is weakened. The total amount of lost weight may reach 15-30% of gained weight.
