Once-a-week TANZEUM may help adults with type 2 diabetes lower their A1C when combined with diet and exercise.
If you are taking certain diabetes pills and/or daily insulin and your A1C levels are not where they should be, ask your doctor if adding once-a-week TANZEUM may be right for you.
Diet, exercise, medication...you've made a lot of changes to try to control your type 2 diabetes. However, in spite of all that you're doing, your A1C levels still may not be where they should be. That means you and your doctor may need to make a change to your treatment plan.
TANZEUM is a once-a-week injection that has been shown in studies to lower A1C in adults taking oral diabetes medication and/or daily insulin. If your A1C is not at goal with certain diabetes pills and/or daily insulin, ask your doctor if adding once-a-week TANZEUM is right for you.
TANZEUM is not insulin. TANZEUM works to help your body release more of its own insulin.
When you have type 2 diabetes, your body may not produce enough insulin or may not be able to use the insulin it produces. Insulin is important because it helps you get glucose from the foods you eat into your body's cells.
GLP-1 (glucagon-like peptide-1) is a hormone your body makes to help maintain the balance of insulin and blood sugar in your system. It helps your body release more insulin, and it can slow down your digestion to help keep blood sugar from getting too high. People with type 2 diabetes may have lower levels of GLP-1. TANZEUM acts like GLP-1, to help manage your blood sugar.
