Description

Victoza® (liraglutide) is considered an injectable incretin mimic. Type 2 diabetes is treated with this relatively new drug. A common mistake is to confuse it with dulaglutide or semaglutide.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus in adults and children 10 years of age and older can be controlled with Victoza® and diet and exercise.

To improve glycaemic control, it is usually used in conjunction with diet and lifestyle changes in adults and children with type 2 diabetes.

A number of studies have shown that incretin mimetics lower blood glucose levels. In combination with diet and exercise, this supplement has also been shown to be beneficial for weight loss when compared to placebo subjects.

Victoza® was first approved by the FDA for use in adults with type 2 diabetes in 2010 and in children over ten years of age with type 2 diabetes in 2019. The FDA has approved it for pediatric use for the first time since metformin was approved for pediatric use in 2000, which made it the only non-insulin drug approved for pediatric use.

Victoza® is also associated with Trulicity®, Saxenda®, and Rybelsus®, which all have become common among the weight loss communities.

It is important to note that Victoza® does not comes with needles.
