Living with type 1 diabetes since 1994.

I've been taking Victoza and that really worked well... at least in the beginning few months... but I do think it keeps me in line now too. also after victoza becomes useless there's Saxenda... which I guess is Victoza on steroids... it didn't really work so well for me. And currently w my Victoza I'm also taking Qsymia which is a specific weight loss med... but let me tell you it's fantastic!! it's not for long term but oh man! I have such success when I'm on it! I hope that helps :) but it may be expensive depending on what your insurance will pay for...

Reduce tour carbohydrate intake. Less bread, pasta, rice, pizza, potato. The body turns this into sugar first and leaves fat from chicken etc untouched which causes weight gain.
