What is Saxenda?
Saxenda (liraglutide) is an injectable prescription medication which is used to help obese or overweight adults lose weight and keep the weight off. The Victoza brand of liraglutide is currently being used in the UK by diabetic patients to help treat type 2 diabetes, but has become licensed in the UK as of January 2017 as a weight loss treatment.
How does Saxenda help you lose weight?
Liraglutide is similar to a hormone which is found in the body to help control blood sugar level, insulin level and aids with digestion. It acts on receptors in the brain to make you feel fuller and less hungry.
