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.

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 should be taken in adjunction to a reduced-calorie diet and increased physical activity, to see the optimum benefits of the medication.
