What Is Victoza?
Victoza (liraglutide) is an injectable medication used to improve blood sugar regulation in individuals with Type 2 diabetes. This medication is non-insulin based and has been shown to lower blood sugar levels within 2 weeks of beginning treatment. In addition, Victoza reduces the risk of stroke, heart attack, and death in adults battling both cardiovascular disease and type 2 diabetes.
Victoza is prescribed for adults and children 10 years of age or older. It is administered once a day via a pen-sized injector. When diabetes is not well controlled by insulin alone, Victoza can be combined with long acting insulin pills, healthy eating, and exercise to effectively keep blood sugar regulated.
Although not a weight loss drug, clinical studies have shown Victoza to promote weight loss for many people. Victoza should not be taken by individuals with endocrine neoplasia type 2 or individuals with a family history of thyroid cancer. In addition, Victoza should not be used by individuals with ketoacidosis or insulin-dependent diabetes.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Simplefill connects you with assistance programs that can help you pay for the medications you need to maintain or improve your health. Dealing with chronic illness is stressful enough without having to worry about not being able to afford the medications you need. Removing that stress for the uninsured, under-insured, or financially challenged can help you to enjoy a better quality of life, emotionally as well as physically.
How Does Victoza Work?
Victoza is in a class of drugs called incretin mimetics. These medications, including Victoza, mimic the hormone glucagon-like peptide 1 (GLP-1). This promotes insulin production when blood sugar levels rise after meals.
Another benefit of this medication’s mechanism is the promotion of weight loss. Victoza delays the movement of food through the digestive track in a manner that may cause individuals taking the medication to feel full longer after a meal and consequently to eat less.
It is important to note that Victoza is not insulin. However, some people do take Victoza along with a separate daily injection of long-acting insulin.
