Trulicity is proven to help lower A1C*
It lowers blood sugar from the first dose and seeing
the impact of one change may motivate you to make
more of them.
Trulicity helps control blood sugar in 3 ways
It can limit how much sugar gets
into your blood from your liver.
It helps slow down how quickly
food leaves your stomach.
It helps your pancreas release
insulin in response to high levels
of sugar in your blood
after you eat.
Trulicity helped lower A1C when measured at 36 weeks, and was shown to help maintain A1C reduction at 1 year.
Along with diet and exercise. In Trulicity studies with other diabetes medication, the average A1C reduction ranged from 0.7% to 1.6% for 0.75mg and 1.5mg. In a
separate study with other diabetes medication, A1C reduction ranged from 1.5% for 1.5mg, to 1.8% for 4.5mg. 52 week results are based on additional information
from the same study.
