I have concerns about taking Victoza as I have focal segmental glomularsclerosis with only 1 kidney functioning. My endocronologist say's to continue taking, don't see my nephrologist for 2 months. Any ideas if this is safe or should I ignore my dr and stop taking it? It has helped my sugars but at what cost... I am not sure.
There has only been limited use of Victoza in patients with kidney impairement. It is recommended that it be used cautiously.
You should follow the advice of your endocrinologist and continue to take Victoza but see if you can get an earlier appointment with your nephrologist for an expert opinion.
