How much weight can I lose with Trulicity?

Obesity impacts millions of people worldwide, but many of those people can struggle to lose weight naturally for a variety of reasons, and diet and exercise alone does not work for them. These reasons can include metabolism, genetics, and pre-existing health and hormonal conditions.

This is why some turn to medical weight loss treatments, and often in the form of injections.

What is Trulicity®?

Trulicity® is a medication formulated by American pharmaceutical brand, Eli-Lilly and Company, to treat type 2 diabetes. It can now be prescribed as a medical aid for weight loss, in the same vain as other popular medical weight loss injections like Ozempic and Saxenda.

Trulicity® includes dulaglutide, a medication that belongs to a class of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists. These drugs work by mimicking the effects of a natural hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in the body. GLP1 is produced in the intestine following a meal, encouraging feelings of fullness and satisfaction and inhibiting overconsumption throughout the day. This, in turn, reduces the number of calories a person will consume day to day. 

When the body burns more calories than it consumes, weight loss is inevitable, which is why Trulicity® is a great option for those struggling to remain in a calorie deficit to lose weight. Therefore, Trulicity® is a dulaglutide injection, self-administered once a week, that imitates the GLP1 (Glucagon – like peptide -1).

What is the average weight loss with Trulicity®?

Studies on the efficacy of Trulicity in those that suffer with obesity and diabetes have displayed great success in its use for weight loss, with one trial showing the average user dropped around 5kg, almost a stone, throughout the trial. 

Research shows appetite suppressants like Trulicity can significantly decrease user’s body weight, and this can be achieved when administered within a supportive, guided diet and exercise plan with Bodyline Medical Wellness Clinics.

Obesity has become a significant concern in the workplace, impacting both employees and employers. Over a quarter of UK adults are currently living with obesity, and numbers are rising across the world. Routines, work environments, and job demands can influence eating habits, activity levels, and overall weight health. As a result, it is crucial for employers to address obesity and support their workforce's weight management journey.
When it comes to weight loss injections, it's hard to ignore the buzz surrounding these treatments and their potential to help individuals achieve their weight loss goals. However, with the rise in popularity of these injections, it's important to be aware of the risks associated with unregulated sources and fake products. Too often we see the scary headlines of near-death experiences, serious illness, and adverse reactions from counterfeit “skinny jabs” and weight loss injections. The online black market of injectable appetite suppressing medications promises cheap prices for quick fixes, but that is not how weight loss works.
As obesity levels are rising across the world, clinicians and medical professionals are emphasizing the fact that our weight can have a significant effect on our wellbeing, both physically and mentally. That’s why it’s absolutely vital that we boost public health knowledge regarding obesity and weight health, so that we know when our weight is becoming a problem, and how we can fix it. That’s where handy tools like the BMI comes in, so we can identify whether or not our weight is healthy or unhealthy, and whether we need to address this to improve our overall weight health. Here at Bodyline, we’d like to expand on what the BMI is, how it is used to identify obesity, and how we can help to lower the BMI if it is getting too high.
