Trulicity Injection.

Trulicity Injection.

Hello friends,
I have been given a new diabetes medication to prevent myself from injecting insulin. It is Trulicity and must be used with 1 injection a week with a special disposable tip.
If anyone has your experience with Trulicity, I would like to hear that.
Thanks in advance for your comments.

Hello Katryna,
I now use Trulicity once a week now for the fifth week in addition to the daily Metformin, Glicazide, Irbesartan Hydrochlorothiazide and Simvastatin and I think it works. In the morning blood sugar value was sober 6.7 mmmol / l (120 mg.dL) this morning.
I eat daily 3 tablespoons oatmeal with almond flour, broken linseed, cinnamon and stevia sweetener. At noon 3 slices Spelled bread with cheese, egg and meat products.
Evening vegetables, meat and chickpeas or beans and curd cheese.
No potatoes or pastas, sometimes at evening a glass of wine with a piece of cheese or sausage and a kiwi before going to bed.
The best wishes for everyone.
Sincerely.
Qurijn Dorst

Sounds like a good list of foods. Try to stay away from all sugars.

I've been taking Trulicity for more than a year now. It works wonders for lowering your Alc. However, it must be used with another diabetic drug, it can't be used alone. My Alc was at 11 it dropped to 6 in 6 months.
