Insulin and Other Injectable Diabetes MedicationsThere are a variety of different types of insulin and other injectable medications for type 2 diabetes, including:
- Incretin mimetics
- Amylin analogues.
Insulin is available in rapid-, short-, long-, or intermediate-acting forms.
Four main incretin mimetics are available, including:
- Exenatide (Byetta®)
- Extended-release exenatide (Bydureon®)
- Trulicity™ (dulaglutide)
- Liraglutide (Victoza®).
These medications work by acting like the hormone incretin in the body, increasing insulin production and slowing down digestion. One of the most notable differences among the incretin mimetics is that Bydureon and Trulicity are injected once a week, Victoza is usually injected once a day, and Byetta is typically injected twice a day.
