Trulicity, also known by its generic name dulaglutide, is a prescription medication used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes. It is an injectable medication that belongs to a class of drugs called GLP-1 receptor agonists, which work by increasing insulin production and decreasing glucose production in the liver.
In recent years, Trulicity has also gained attention as a potential treatment for weight loss. According to clinical trials, patients using Trulicity for the treatment of type 2 diabetes have shown significant weight loss as a side effect. In fact, the medication has been shown to be an effective weight loss tool when used in combination with a healthy diet and exercise.
One study published in the journal Obesity in 2015 found that patients using Trulicity lost an average of 3.7% of their body weight after 56 weeks of treatment. This weight loss was greater than that achieved by patients using a placebo. Another study published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and Metabolism in 2017 found that patients using Trulicity lost an average of 4.7% of their body weight after 28 weeks of treatment.
While Trulicity is not specifically approved by the FDA for weight loss, it has been shown to be effective in promoting weight loss as a side effect. Additionally, because the medication is used for the treatment of type 2 diabetes, it may also be a good option for overweight or obese individuals with this condition.
