I work in a LTC/Rehab facility and just came across a pt who was on Victoza. I have never heard of it before. It was used in conjunction with an oral anti-diabetic (glipzide) and SS regular insulin.
I did a little research and it said it was not an insulin, but a hormone. Just curious if this works better than others (it appears there are some risks to taking this).
This pt is very non-compliant with diet (BS 464-"I guess it is b/c I ate 2 bags of candy yesterday" uh-duh!)
