I will be participating in a trial here in the US regarding liraglutide and weight loss. I won't know until next week if I am pre-diabetic but there is a good chance since I was gestational with the last baby. I'm hoping I get the real deal and not the placebo and from what I read here, I should know pretty quickly from the side affects. has anyone else done a trial or taken the drug just for weight loss? It's not approved for this in the US yet. I have 90 lbs to lose and nothing seems to work.
