I started taking Victoza in February, 2013. Since that time, my A1C has gone from in the 9s to 5.9! I've lost approximately 40 pounds and BG stays in the 90-110 range. I am SO upset because my insurance provider (BCBS/Express Scripts) will no longer cover this medication after 1/1/14. How can a person's health take second fiddle to a "business decision?" Disgusting.

This drug did help me control my blood glucose readings BUT I did develop acute kidney disease & hyperkalemia after taking the medication for about 2 months. My creatnine levels spiked to 1.77 and my potassium levels were very high. The creatnine and potassium levels came back to normal after not taking this medication for 2 weeks.

It has lowered my A1C from 7.4 to 6.2 in 3 months. It was a rough couple months getting use to this medicine. It made me very sick to my stomach and I belched like a sailor and the heartburn was bad. Zantac helped with that. I had to increase my does VERY slowly. It took me 3 months to be able to handle the full does. I have lost 10lbs. through the process. My appetite is definitely smaller ...
