Suggest Reducing Insulin Doses if Liraglutide is Used for Weight Loss in Diabete

You'll see more interest in using liraglutide (Victoza, etc) for weight loss...even in patients WITHOUT diabetes.

Saxenda will be for obese patients with or without diabetes...but it's given in a higher dose than Victoza to help reduce hunger.
