Victoza was approved by FDA on January 2010, it is used once daily as injection, and it is not related to meals. Victoza is intended to be used to lower BG levels in type 2 diabetic patients, and it is recommended to be used along with proper diet, physical activity and other diabetic drugs. FDA approved Victoza after it was tested in 5 different clinical trials, it is found that Victoza can cause inflammation of pancreas more than other used diabetic medications; therefore, it must be stopped immediately if it causes abdominal pain.

Victoza has better effect on lowering blood glucose levels than Byetta, but, both of them have nearly the same effect on weight loss for diabetics.Smile

From the thread Aartificial sweeteneers in the Food forum:
Recently, FDA has approved stevia, which is a plant used from ages as a natural sweetener. I think it is better to use such natural alternatives than artificial products. There are no side effects reported against stevia at any official study.
