Liraglutide (Victoza®) - What is it for

Liraglutide is used to control diabetes. It works by reducing your feeling of wanting to eat food, hence helping you to lose weight. It also helps to increase the insulin made by your body when your blood sugar is high and decrease the sugar made by your liver.

One ml solution for injection contains 6mg of liraglutide. One pre-filled pen contains 18mg liraglutide.
