Can Trulicity be Prescribed for Weight Loss?

Obesity is a chronic condition that affects millions of people worldwide and is characterized by an excessive accumulation of body fat. This condition can lead to various health problems, such as type 2 diabetes and heart disease. The good news is that for those who struggle to lose weight through diet and exercise alone, there are several effective treatments available for managing obesity, including lifestyle changes, taking oral medications, and using medical weight loss injections.

One such injectable therapy is Trulicity, which is a medication created by Eli-Lilly and Company initially to treat type 2 diabetes. However, Trulicity can also be prescribed as a medical aid for weight loss. It is a GLP-1 receptor agonist that mimics the effects of glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in the body. GLP-1 is a natural hormone secreted by the intestine in response to food intake, and it stimulates the release of insulin from the pancreas, which helps to lower blood sugar levels.

How does Trulicity work for weight loss?

Trulicity is a once-weekly injection that contains the active ingredient dulaglutide. Like other GLP-1 receptors agonists, Trulicity works by stimulating the body’s natural production of insulin secretion. It also inhibits the release of glucagon and slows digestion, aiding in weight loss. 

This leads to lower blood sugar levels and improved glycemic control in people with type 2 diabetes. Moreover, Trulicity has been shown to promote weight loss by reducing appetite and food intake, as well as its effects on metabolism.

This is because Trulicity increases satisfaction and reduces appetite, leading to a reduction in calorie intake and aiding weight loss. It works by mimicking the natural hormones that your body produces, signalling to the brain and gastrointestinal systems that food has been consumed.

This results in a complex cascade of hormones and neurotransmitters which effectively communicate feelings of fullness and slow down the rate at which food leaves your stomach, making users feel fuller for longer.

The benefits of Trulicity go beyond its glucose-lowering effects. Trulicity has been shown to reduce the risk of major adverse cardiovascular events, such as heart attack, stroke, and cardiovascular death, in adults with type 2 diabetes.

Searches for semaglutide, tirzepatide and liraglutide (brand names WeGovy/Ozempic, Mounjaro, and Saxenda respectively) have increased dramatically in the past year, and interest continues to rise.
