What is Trulicity®?

Obesity and weight loss struggles impact millions of people worldwide. It can lead to type 2 diabetes, and heart problems, characterised by high blood sugar levels due to insulin resistance or insufficient insulin production. Uncontrolled diabetes can lead to serious health complications, such as heart disease, stroke, kidney failure, and blindness.

Fortunately, there are several effective treatments available for managing obesity, including lifestyle changes, oral medications, and injectable therapies. One such injectable therapy is Trulicity.

Trulicity® is a medication that was created by an American pharmaceutical company, Eli-Lilly and Company, to treat type 2 diabetes but it can be prescribed as a medical aid for weight loss. 

It 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. GLP-1 is secreted by the intestine in response to food intake and stimulates the release of insulin from the pancreas, which helps to lower blood sugar levels.

How does Trulicity® work?

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 is because Trulicity® increases satiety and reduces appetite, leading to a reduction in calorie intake to aid 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.

Is Trulicity® the same as Ozempic?

Trulicity® and Ozempic are both medications used to aid in weight loss alongside diet and exercise. They both contain a GLP-1 receptor agonist, which mimics the effects of a natural hormone called glucagon-like peptide-1 (GLP-1) in the body. 

Trulicity® is a once-weekly injection that contains dulaglutide, while Ozempic is also a once-weekly injection that contains semaglutide. Studies have shown that both Trulicity® and Ozempic are effective in reducing blood sugar levels over time and promoting weight loss.

Benefits of Trulicity®

One of the benefits of Trulicity® is that it is relatively easy to use. It is available as a once-weekly injection, which can be administered at home. This means that individuals taking Trulicity® can continue with their daily activities without any disruption.

Another important aspect of Trulicity® is that it 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.

By now we should all have heard of the incredible weight loss results from GLP-1 receptor agonist medications and their ever-growing popularity. All over the UK, people are searching for access to ‘game changing’ medications to solve their weight problems. 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. That’s because for the first time ever, there seems to be a potential long-term solution to the obesity epidemic that has afflicted the world over the past 30 years.
If you're on a weight loss journey and are prescribed medication to aid in this process, it's essential to manage your medication intake effectively during Ramadan to ensure both your health and adherence to religious obligations.
Despite the enormous popularity of WeGovy and its incredible impact on weight loss, a shortage of the injectable weight loss therapy has been ongoing in recent months.
