The Victoza did help decrease my blood sugar numbers nadmy A1C, but I had a massive amount of side effects that I didn't know was being increased by the Victoza because the Victoza was started around the same time that I was also having gallbladder issues, and had a gall stone.

Began with such hope, but turned to nausea day 1, tired & lack of energy. The next few days went to nausea, bloating, stomach cramps, etc. affected my ability to work for several days.

Still, high sugar levels are known to do much damage long ... Show Full Comment
