New evidence that Victoza works for obesity as well as Type 2 diabetes | October 23, 2009

The injection called Victoza, which was launched in July, is used to help prevent thousands of type 2 diabetes from having hypoglycaemic attacks, where blood sugar levels fall too low.
However as study in which it was pitted against a leading anti-obesity pill, orlistat which is also known as Xenical, Vicotza caused greater weight loss.

The study of 564 people across Europe with a body mass index between 30 and 40 – meaning they were clinically obese – found high doses of the drug were much more successful than the other anti-obesity treatment or a placebo injection.
