As an educator and clinician, I hear the frustration over weight gain resulting from insulin therapy. For those requiring insulin therapy, this reality can be disheartening to say the least. So I when I read summary of study that showed liraglutide (Victozia) can improve glycemic control and reduce body weight in persons with type 2 diabetes on insulin therapy, I thought it was worth sharing. The link is below. I do encourage persons with type 2 diabetes on insulin to have discussion with their primary care provider, endocrinologist or diabetes educator about adding GLP-1 agonist to their current diabetes medication regimen as it will lower glucose and weight (now that sounds good!).
