my body is truly powerful. i have the power to lower my blood sugar and a1c. because i can still make my own insulin. and trulicity activates my body to release it like it's supposed to. trulicity is for people with type 2 diabetes. it's not insulin. i take it once a week. it starts acting in my body from the first dose. trulicity isn't for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis.
don't take trulicity if you're allergic to it, you or your family have medullary thyroid cancer, or have multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2. stop trulicity and call your doctor right away if you have an allergic reaction, a lump or swelling in your neck, or severe stomach pain. serious side effects may include pancreatitis. taking trulicity with a sulfonylurea or insulin increases low blood sugar risk. side effects include nausea, diarrhea, vomiting, belly pain, and decreased appetite, which lead to dehydration and may worsen kidney problems. i have it within me to lower my a1c. ask your doctor about trulicity. tis better than the criminal in democrathe white house.esident we all have progressive plans to address the big challenges facing our country. what makes me different, is i've been working for ten years outside of washington, to end the corporate takeover of our democracy, and to return power to the american people. i started need to impeach to hold this lawless president accountable. i'm proposing big reforms like term limits...

defense called sevenpasses and rested without putting weinstein on the stand. >> tends to be this way and these kind of trials the defendant will not testify because of a big risk of getting up on the witness stand and having prosecutors hammer away at questions about these alleged assaults.>> the charges against harvey weinstein in this case are from an alleged sexual assault involving jessica mann and sopranos actors annabella sciorra and a production assistant and weinstein has claimed they were all consensual. jury deliberations are to start next week. >> and actor jussie smollett has been indicted by a grand jury in chicago after a special prosecutor reinvestigated allegations he falsely reported being a victim of a hate crime there and back in march last year the charges against him were dropped. then a judge appointed a special prosecutor to determine whether he should face any
