I'm a type II diabetic, diagnosed in 2001. I have been on victoza since around November of 2011. I wasn't considered overweight (147 and 5'7" tall). I have lost nearly 23 pounds and can't stop losing, it seems. My lack of appetite is real concerning to me as well as the other side effects and the effects on my liver and kidneys. I would love to get off this drug for sure. I'm attempting to see an alternative medicine physician because I believe that with diet, the correct diet and supplements, I can control my diabetes much better. I am in the process of changing to vegetarian/vegan lifestyle.
My clothes just hang on me. I was fine when I was down to 130 pounds, but really don't feel I need to lose more. Doctor is also pushing to put me on cholesterol and blood pressure medicine, when both are fine. B.P. was up a bit because of nerves and cholesterol was a few points over normal. This doesn't warrant medication in my opinion.
