Yes, you can take a diet rich in protein along with Trulicity 0.75mg Pre-Filled Pen. Proteins are one of the major energy providers among all essential nutrients. Besides, being the building blocks of the human body, proteins break down into glucose to release energy. Unlike carbohydrates, the metabolism of proteins into glucose is much slower. Therefore, the release of energy usually takes a few hours after consumption. Thus, the spike in blood sugar levels might occur after a few hours when you are on a high-protein diet. It is often recommended to consume about 2-3 teaspoons of proteins in the evening snacks to avert the chances of hypoglycemia.<br><br>
