If you have type 2 diabetes, it’s time to bring GLP-1 Activity into the conversation with your doctor

You’ve talked to your health care provider about many topics related to type 2 diabetes. But are you talking about GLP-1 Activity?



What is GLP-1 Activity?

If you have type 2 diabetes, your body may not be responding to GLP-1 properly.

GLP-1 is a natural hormone that helps your body release insulin to help keep blood sugar in balance.

When your insulin isn’t released at the right time or in the right amount, your blood sugar can get too high.

Frequent
urination
Kidneys have a limited ability to handle high blood sugar and at some point, they release the sugar into the urine, which causes you to urinate more.
Increased
thirst
Frequent urination can lead to dehydration.
Fatigue
Dehydration from increased urination and your body's inability to turn sugar into energy can make you feel tired.
Blurry
vision
Excess amounts of sugar in your blood may lead to swelling in the lens of your eye. As a result, you might notice blurred vision.
