I have never heard this and wondering what the explanation for it was.
I have been taking Victoza since December at 1.2 dosage. My BS isn't any better than it was before I started it. I have lost weight but contribute that to my working out and eating better. I won't be taking Victoza after this dosage is up because my new insurance won't pay for it and if they do my copay will be outrageous and if its not working wonders for me its pointless.
VERY interested in your explanation though!
I take mine around 8 pm I have been on it just over 1 week I have lose 3-4 Lbs If i am able to keep it in the fridge i do but my Diabetic Education nurse said it was not necessary to keep it refrigerated I don't know really that's just what i was told
I take it at bedtime (on it about 6 weeks now), and the most amazing thing is that it defeats my horrible dawn phenomenon, apparently gets my liver under control and keeps it from chugging out glucose in the early AM, so that my fasting is no longer the highest reading of the day! That in itself is worth a lot. My doc told me to stop eating the minute I get full (which is a lot earlier than I did before), and that defeats the nausea effect. Apparently another thing it does is empty the stomach slower, which is why you feel full faster, and have nausea if you eat as much as you used to. And my sugars all day are much--I mean dramatically--better. My only fear is that I have heard from some that it just stops working after a while--and a short while at that. Well, and paying for it on Medicare in a couple years.
