What is dulaglutide (Trulicity)?
Dulaglutide (Trulicity) is a prescription drug used to treat type 2 diabetes when diet, exercise, and other forms of medication do not adequately control blood sugar levels. Dulaglutide increases the pancreas’ production of insulin to get your type 2 diabetes under control. Not only does dulaglutide help manage blood sugar levels, but it can also help patients with type 2 diabetes reduce their risk of heart attack, stroke, and death.
Dulaglutide is prescribed in conjunction with other treatment measures such as exercise and dietary changes to help patients lose weight and prevent serious complications caused by diabetes.
Dulaglutide is the active ingredient in Trulicity, a brand-name medication. There is currently no generic version of Trulicity.
