hi, i'm dominique wilkins. when you have type 2 diabetes, like me, there's a moment of truth. and with victoza?, a better moment of proof. victoza? lowers my a1c and blood sugar better than the leading branded pill, which didn't get me to my goal. victoza? works with your body to lower blood sugar in three ways-- in the stomach, the liver and the pancreas. and while it isn't for weight loss, non-insulin victoza? comes in a pen and is taken once a day. (announcer) victoza? is not recommended as the first medication to treat diabetes and is not for people with type 1 diabetes or diabetic ketoacidosis. do not take victoza? if you have a personal or family history of medullary thyroid cancer, multiple endocrine neoplasia syndrome type 2, or if you are allergic to victoza? or any of its ingredients. stop taking victoza? and call your doctor right away
6:25 pm
or difficulty breathing. serious side effects may happen, including pancreatitis. so, stop taking victoza? and call your doctor right away if you have severe pain in your stomach area. tell your doctor your medical history. taking victoza? with a sulfonylurea or insulin may cause low blood sugar. the most common side effects are headache, nausea, diarrhea, and vomiting. side effects can lead to dehydration, which may cause kidney problems. now's the time for a better moment of proof.
